Unemployment in the U.S. fell to 3.5 percent, then returned to a 50-year low hit earlier this year.

Just days after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was caught laughing at the expense of President Donald Trump, the U.S economy added 266,000 jobs in November, while Canada lost 71,200 jobs.

This is a massive blow for Trudeau as the loss is the biggest since the financial crisis, according to Canada’s national statistics agency.

Unemployment in the U.S. fell to 3.5 percent, then returned to a 50-year low hit earlier this year.

Economists had predicted the economy would add 180,000 jobs, with unemployment remaining unchanged at 3.6 percent.

The divergence also undermines the Trump critics who argued the U.S President's tariffs had weighed heavily on the U.S. economy.

Canada has not imposed any tariffs on China but is still mostly underperforming.

The Canadian economy was over-estimated by economists who forecasted a gain of 10,000 jobs and for the unemployment rate to hold steady at 5.5 percent.

As usual, Trump has had the last laugh.
