Under President Donald Trump, America is Booming

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – “Our country has never done better than it is doing right now,” President Donald Trump said this morning. He’s right—and the numbers prove it.
 
While one party mourns the death of its political stunt, here is the news from the rest of America.

Americans’ economic optimism just hit a record 44-year high—better than under Presidents Reagan, Clinton, or Obama. That confidence is buoyed by an unemployment rate near 50-year lows, a record stock market, and plummeting income inequality as blue-collar wage gains outpace white-collar ones.

Monday Starts an Excellent Week for President Donald Trump

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – Tomorrow night, February 4th, 2020,  President Donald Trump delivers his third State of the Union Address.
