And for Asian American and for everybody. Best for women. Best for people without a diploma young people without a diploma I'm and so many different categories and numbers were the best and almost every category. We had the most people working in the history of our country almost a 160 million people we were never even close to that. So we had things that where we were doing so well and then it came in but we're going to be back here I think we'll go to actually be back. Higher next year than ever before and the only thing that can stoppers is bad policy we mobilize. Nobody has ever seen anything like it. And then we did Tesoro Vernon.
