Under President Donald Trump, Americans Have Seen Their Best Wage Growth In 40 Years

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – “Many on the left refuse to admit President Trump’s populist policies have provided massive benefits to working-class Americans . . . Yet, during the first three years of the Trump presidency, wage growth was off the charts, especially for low-income workers and African Americans,” Robb Sinn writes for The Federalist.
 
“The Obama era proved dispiriting for many African American wage earners. The first three years of the Trump administration were a comparative godsend.”

President Donald Trump’s Remarks in Meeting with Republican Members of Congress

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP: Hi, everybody. Please, sit down. Get things done. Nobody gets it done like we do.

Now, I don’t know — are we letting the media in? Is the media here? I guess we have a limited media because of distancing. And some people think I did that on purpose. But we’ve been getting along with them reasonably well lately.

I just want to thank you all for coming back because you came back. This is a Republican group, largely, if not in all cases. You know, they look pretty Republican. I’m not sure about Devin. Let’s just — you’re a Republican, aren’t you? (Laughter.) No, this is a very, very Republican group. And we appreciate you coming back. Hi, Debbie.

This agreement – implemented in November – was an attempt to reduce global crude oversupply and drive up oil prices to $60.00 per barrel.
