      Remarks by the President in Commencement Address to the United States Air Force Academy

      United States Air Force Academy
      Colorado Springs, Colorado

      10:20.M. MDT

      THE PRESIDENT: Hello, Air Force! (Applause.) Thank you so much. Thank you. It is wonderful to be back at the United States Air Force Academy! (Applause.) Thank you,

      Secretary James, for your service to our Air Force and to our nation. Governor Hickenlooper, Academy leaders, faculty and staff — especially your outstanding Superintendent, Lieutenant General Michelle Johnson. (Applause.) And most of all, congratulations to the Class of 2016! (Applause.)

      As he prepares to conclude a remarkable 40-year career in the Air Force — a career that started on this day 40 years ago — please join me in saluting someone who many of you look up to and whose counsel I’ve relied on as well — Chief of Staff General Mark Welsh. Thank you, Mark. (Applause.) Thank you, Mark, and thank you, Betty.

      And although he’s not here today, I am proud to have nominated another Academy graduate — and a combat-tested pilot — to serve as the 21st Air Force Chief of Staff, General David Goldfein. (Applause.)

      Cadets, you can take enormous pride in all the hard work that has brought you to this day. I also ask you to give a big round of applause to all your moms and dads, grandparents, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles who supported you and sacrificed for you so you could be here today. Give them another round of applause. (Applause.)

      Remarks by the First Lady at City College of New York Commencement

      City College of New York
      New York, New York

      12:19 P.M. EDT

      MRS. OBAMA: Wow! (Applause.) Let me just take it in. First of all, it is beyond a pleasure and an honor to be here to celebrate the City College of New York Class of 2016! You all, I mean, this has been the most fun I think I’ve had at a commencement ever. (Applause.)

      Let me just say a few thank yous. Let me start, of course, by thanking President Coico for that wonderful introduction, for her leadership here at City College, for this honorary degree.

      I also want to recognize Senator Schumer, Chancellor Milliken, Trustee Shorter, Edward Plotkin, as well as your amazing valedictorian, Antonios Mourdoukoutas — did I get it right? (Applause.) And your amazing salutatorian, Orubba Almansouri. (Applause.) I really don’t want to follow those two. (Laughter.) If anybody is wondering about the quality of education, just listening to those two speakers lets you know what’s happening here. And I’m so proud of you both — and to your families, congratulations. Well done. Well done. (Applause.)

      And of course, let us not forget Elizabeth Aklilu for her amazing performance of the National Anthem earlier today. She blew it out of the water. (Applause.)

      But most of all, I want to acknowledge all of you -– the brilliant, talented, ambitious, accomplished, and all-around outstanding members of the class of 2016! Woo! (Applause.) You give me chills. You all have worked so hard and come so far to reach this milestone, so I know this is a big day for all of you and your families, and for everyone at this school who supported you on this journey.

      And in many ways, this is a big day for me too. See, this is my very last commencement address as First Lady of the United States. This is it. (Applause.) So I just want to take it all in. And I think this was the perfect place to be, because this is my last chance to share my love and admiration, and hopefully a little bit of wisdom with a graduating class.

      And, graduates, I really want you all to know that there is a reason why, of all of the colleges and universities in this country, I chose this particular school in this particular city for this special moment. (Applause.) And I’m here because of all of you. I mean, we’ve talked about it — Antonios, I’m going to talk a little bit about diversity, thank you. (Laughter.)

      Just look around. Look at who you are. Look at where we’re gathered today. As the President eloquently said, at this school, you represent more than 150 nationalities. You speak more than 100 different languages — whoa, just stop there. You represent just about every possible background -– every color and culture, every faith and walk of life. And you’ve taken so many different paths to this moment.

  5. Employment Situation

    Released On 6/3/2016 8:30:00 AM For May, 2016

    Prior Prior Revised Consensus Consensus Range Actual
    Nonfarm Payrolls – M/M change 160,000 123,000 158,000 110,000 to 219,000 38,000
    Unemployment Rate – Level 5.0 % 4.9 % 4.9 % to 5.0 % 4.7 %
    Private Payrolls – M/M change 171,000 130,000 150,000 105,000 to 211,000 25,000
    Participation Rate – level 62.8 % 62.6 %
    Average Hourly Earnings – M/M change 0.3 % 0.4 % 0.2 % 0.2 % to 0.3 % 0.2 %
    Av Workweek – All Employees 34.5 hrs 34.4 hrs 34.5 hrs 34.4 hrs to 34.5 hrs 34.4 hrs

    Highlights
    The assessment of the labor market, not to mention the outlook for consumer spending, just came down as nonfarm payrolls proved much weaker than expected in May, up only 38,000 with the two prior months revised a total of 59,000 lower. The Verizon strike is a negative in the data but not a decisive one, pulling down telecommunication payrolls by 37,000 in a loss that will be reversed in coming reports now that the strike has been resolved.

    The labor force as measured by the household survey shrank sharply, in turn driving down the unemployment rate by 3 tenths to a 4.7 percent level that embodies monthly weakness, not strength, in the labor market. The labor force participation rate, after having shown life in prior months, is down 2 tenths to 62.6 percent.

  6. International Trade

    Released On 6/3/2016 8:30:00 AM For Apr, 2016

    Prior Prior Revised Consensus Consensus Range Actual
    Trade Balance Level -40.4 B $-35.5 B $-41.0 B $-44.0 B to $-40.4 B $-37.4 B

    Highlights
    The nation’s trade balance is narrower than expected, at $37.4 billion in April with March revised sharply lower, to $35.5 billion from $40.4 billion. Exports show wide strength in the April data, up 1.5 percent and with particular strength in industrial supplies and autos and including gains for foods, consumer goods as well as capital goods. Imports rose 2.1 percent in the month led, in what is welcome news for business investment, by capital goods which surged $2.5 billion. Industrial supplies and also autos and consumer goods show import gains with the latter two pointing especially to strength in domestic demand.
