LANDOVER, Maryland (Reuters) - President Barack Obama said on Friday the U.S. economy is showing real strength after a positive jobs report for March that he said was good news.

Speaking at a UPS shipping facility, Obama said much work remains to get millions of Americans back to work, after the Labor Department reported a drop in the jobless rate to 8.8 percent, a two-year low.

"Our economy is showing signs of real strength," Obama said.
