Chair of the Democratic National Committee Tom Perez threw cold-water on Friday’s sizzling economic statistics over the weekend; bizarrely saying the US recovery was “leaving working families behind” because recent wage growth isn’t “keeping up with inflation.”

“New economic numbers from Friday showed a quarter of a million new jobs, steady unemployment at a 49-year-low… Your statement in response to the numbers was ‘Too many working families have been left behind in the Trump economy.’ What are you talking about?” asked CNN’s Jake Tapper.

“I’m talking about real wage growth… We created more jobs in the last 21 months in the Obama administration than in the first 21 months of the Trump administration. People need to feel if they work a full time job they can afford to feed their families,” fired-back Perez.
