NAFTA is no more

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – For over 25 years, Republicans and Democrats alike griped about the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Because of its weak, voluntary labor and environmental “rules,” NAFTA cost America millions of jobs and devastated working-class communities.
 
President Trump was one of NAFTA’s earliest critics as far back as the 1990s. Like former President Barack Obama, candidate Donald Trump promised to renegotiate NAFTA if he was elected. Unlike President Obama, Donald Trump kept that promise after taking office.

The “Trump Bump” is real

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – America’s slow recovery from the Great Recession gave left-wing “experts” a fresh talking point: “secular stagnation.” They excused low growth under former President Barack Obama as a new normal. Lost factory jobs and low wages were merely a sign of the times.

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – “There are a lot of statistics Mark A. Morgan, acting U.S. Customs and Border Protection commissioner, uses to show how President Donald Trump’s policies have helped to cut illegal immigration into the United States”—but there are two that he thinks really make that accomplishment clear, Paul Bedard reports for the Washington Examiner.

“First is daily apprehensions, a number that hit 4,600 at the height of the latest crisis in May. That has now dropped to 1,300. What’s more, he said, the 21-daily average is below 1,000, a 78% cut.”

The Democrats and Iran

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – “President Donald Trump’s order to take out Qasem Soleimani was morally, constitutionally and strategically correct.
