President Biden on Friday celebrated a positive monthly jobs report by declaring that it was “afternoon” in America — a play on Ronald Reagan’s famous pronouncement that it was “morning in America” after a dark stretch.

US companies added 850,000 jobs in June — more than anticipated — though the unemployment rate unexpectedly nudged higher to 5.9 percent, according to data released Friday.

“Good morning, everyone. It is a good morning,” Biden told reporters at the White House. “As we get prepared to celebrate Independence Day, today’s job news brought us something else to celebrate.”

“The last time the economy grew at this rate was in 1984 and Ronald Reagan was telling us ‘it’s morning in America.’ Well, it’s getting close to afternoon here, the sun is coming out,” Biden said.

Biden spoke as he prepared to host some of the largest events at the White House since the COVID-19 pandemic struck last year. Around noon Friday, he will host the Los Angeles Dodgers at the White House to celebrate their win last year in the World Series.

On Sunday, Biden will host more than 1,000 emergency personnel at the White House for a cookout on the South Lawn that celebrates a reduction in COVID-19 cases amid widespread vaccination.
