Job creation in the US economy surged last month, but the annual rate of wage growth slowed under the Trump administration.

The economy created 313,000 jobs in February, official figures show, far in excess of analysts' expectations.

The US economy is in its ninth year of economic expansion, with an upswing in global growth and tax cuts passed last year helping to boost growth.

Friday's report from the US Labor Department showed the biggest increase in jobs since July 2016, sending major stock indexes higher.
