Donald Trump's campaign Friday declared as "disastrous" the latest jobs report that showed unemployment dipping under 5 percent, The Washington Times reported.

Employers added 161,000 new jobs with the unemployment rate matching a low in January, which was the first dip under 5 percent in eight years.

However, the Trump camp called it "disastrous."

The report "underscores the total failures of the Obama-Clinton economy that delivers only for donors and special interests and robs working families," the Times reported.

"Nearly half a million people left the workforce last month, a painful and massive decline. Over 14 million have left the workforce since Obama came into office, bringing the total not working to 94 million," Trump campaign policy director Steven Miller told the Times. "In four days, voters will get the chance to vote to take power back from the special interests and return it to the people."

Further, the Trump campaign highlights that Obama is the first president not to have a single year of 3 percent wage growth.

CNN reported earlier this year that with unemployment under 5 percent, wage growth should be around 4 percent.
