That's a jaw-dropping figure.
Keep in mind that the U.S. labor force numbers around 150 million, per Bureau of Labor Statistics stats. So 25 million new jobs is a jump of over 15% in employed people.
And unemployment stands at about 4.8%, meaning there aren't many hungry and qualified job seekers out there.
Even so, know that at least some experts think the incoming president just may make good on his audacious promise - even if a lot of the job creation happens in unexpected places.
Can it be that easy? Giacomo Santangelo, who teaches economics at Fordham University in New York, said that - given the many promises candidate Trump has made such as steep tax cuts - he did not see how 25 million new jobs could be created. Added Santangelo: "He is not promoting what stimulates growth."
At least that's how textbook economics sees the Trump promise. But with a non-textbook president, maybe other perspectives apply.
"Trump's plan to keep jobs in the U.S. should re-ignite the U.S. manufacturing and production industry in particular," said Steven Lindner, a partner in recruiting company The WorkPlace Group. "Expect to see more career opportunities for electricians, refrigeration, mechanics, machinist and the like. As more workers are added to companies' rosters, more management and senior level job opportunities will develop."
