Trump lives in a Breitbart fantasy world, and he’s now invited Bannon to personally decorate that world for him.

The Class of 2016’s labor market: Here are some of the key findings from EPI’s report:

  • “Members of the Class of 2016 currently have better job prospects than the classes of 2009–2015.”
  • “For young college graduates, the unemployment rate is currently 5.6 percent (compared with 5.5 percent in 2007), and the underemployment rate is 12.6 percent (compared with 9.6 percent in 2007).”
  • “Young male college graduates earned 8.1 percent more in 2016 than in 2000, while young female college graduates earned 6.8 percent less than in 2000.”
