Trump attributed the addition of 8,000 jobs to "what's happening and the spirit and the hope".
"We had a general conversation". "You don't think so?"
Trump later told reporters that Israel is being treated "very, very unfairly", maintaining that countries that are "horrible places" never get reprimanded.
But John Feehery, president of Quinn Gillespie Communications and a former spokesman for former House Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-Ill.), argued that it is wise for Trump to take credit for the economy while circumstances allow it.

Tensions between the incoming and outgoing administrations reached a boiling point earlier this week after the Obama administration decided not to veto a United Nations resolution condemning Israel for violating worldwide law by building settlements in the West Bank.
And back to Israel: "I'm very, very strong on Israel".
The president-elect also lashed out this week at the Obama administration over its unwillingness to defend Israel at the United Nations against a resolution condemning it for new settlement activity.
Trump has his transition team have until now been largely complimentary of the way President Obama and his White House team have handled the transition of power from one administration to the next.
