White House economic advisor: Expects unemployment rate at 19%

That’s a little higher than expectations

White House economic advisor Hassett is on FOXNews saying:
  • expects April jobs report to show unemployment rate at around 19%
  • economy could potentially be turned right back on if coronavirus is under control soon
  • White House it should have better ideas soon if more stimulus for economy needed
The 19% level is a bit high compared to market expectations.   The meeting estimate as per Bloomberg is 16.3%. The average is 15.12% with a high estimate of 22%.
Does he know something or is he sandbagging hoping that the number is better, or does he not know.
