The national unemployment rate also dropped - from 3.9% to 3.8%, a new 18-year low, the U.S. Department of Labor said.
The president's suggestion may have run afoul of a federal rule that says executive-branch employees with early access to the data should make sure there is no release of the information ahead of the designated time.
A former member of the President's council of economic advisers under President Obama pointed out the possibility of leaked information sparking insider trading, and said that any leaks should be investigated.
The jobs data come out once a month, and often can lead to massive buying or selling trends on Wall Street depending on how the information is received.
The jobs report has heavy influence on financial markets and is closely guarded by federal officials. The president's tweet appeared to be a tease of strong job numbers.
It is not required for the president to see the jobs report number in advance. But former Obama White House press secretary Jay Carney took it a step further, saying that the same would be true under both Bush administrations:Ari Fleischer, former White House press secretary to President George W. Bush, seemed to concur. He tweeted "If during the Clinton or Obama Administrations there had been a statement from POTUS or anyone senior official in the morning before the Employment Report it would have been a major scandal-with all sorts of investigations following on".
It's been a while since one of President Donald Trump's tweets made economic news, but today he kind of scooped the rest of the government.
Social media users saw the message as evidence that Trump had seen the numbers, and that they were good.
If Trump did see the numbers, his tweet may have violated a federal rule, issued in 1985, governing the release of embargoed federal data like the jobs report.
Meanwhile, Kudlow said trade frictions between the United States and Canada are a "family quarrel", brushing aside concerns expressed by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as an overreaction. "The advance info is sacrosanct - not to be shared".
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has called the tariffs "totally unacceptable", but Mr. Navarro said US trade partners need to examine their own "unfair trade practices".
"Our bond desk knew this was a big heads up, but there are so many headlines and stories and themes we are following, Spain, Italy, trade sanctions, Nafta, that the President's tweet didn't set off a firestorm of trading activity", said Chris Rupkey, chief financial economist from Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group. "People who happened to be on Twitter at 7:21, you learned that the president was likely happy with the jobs report".
The answer to this question is clearly that we can not be sure that this hasn't or wouldn't happen thanks to the fact that this President has already violated almost every other norm that applied in the past.
"It's possible. I don't think it has right now", Kudlow continued. Unemployment has steadily improved, economic growth has ticked up slightly, and wage growth has been slight.
