How President Donald Trump is helping lift 1 million Americans out of poverty

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – One million Americans will be lifted from poverty because of President Donald Trump’s historic Opportunity Zones tax cuts program, the White House Council of Economic Advisers estimates in a new report.
 
For over 50 years, the “War on Poverty” has left too many American communities behind. Many of its programs have “relied on inefficient top-down federal grants and subsidies that empower Washington bureaucrats and special interests with lobbyists at the expense of communities in need,” HUD Secretary Ben Carson and White House Domestic Policy Council Director Brooke Rollins wrote.

Plasma Therapy a Promising Step in Fight Against COVID-19

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – “On Sunday, President Trump announced the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is issuing an emergency use authorization for (EUA) convalescent plasma in hospitalized patients, another step forward in the fight against COVID-19 Coronavirus,” Dr. Nicole Saphier writes for Fox News.

“It may not be the magic ticket to end the pandemic, but can it save lives if sufficient quantities of IgG [antibodies] are given early enough? Data from over 30,000 people in the study suggest so. And because of that, every American should be rejoicing.”

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

Not to mention a new North American trade agreement just as candidate Trump promised, China desperate to end the trade war and America’s NATO allies paying much more of their fair share for collective defense.”
