Blue collar boom

Prez has plenty to talk about at State of the Union

President Trump will deliver his third State of the Union address on Capitol Hill tomorrow night buoyed by a roaring economy, historically low unemployment for all Americans and a 50% approval rating despite the impeachment hoax.

The president is playing a winning hand leading into the Iowa caucuses and New Hampshire primaries.

Expect the president to tout that since taking office his administration has added trillions in value to the U.S. stock market and created over 7 million jobs, a rising tide which is lifting all boats and revitalizing the American dream.

We’re experiencing a blue collar boom where wage growth for workers is surpassing wage growth for managers. We’re seeing higher wage growth for high school graduates than those with bachelor’s degrees. And wage growth for African Americans is exceeding that of white Americans.

Trump’s pro-growth “America First” policies are shrinking the income inequality gap and empowering the “forgotten man” left behind by the globalist elites.

But that’s not everyone who’s winning in the Trump economy. For the first time there are more women in the workforce today than men. Result? 650,000 single mothers have been lifted out of poverty along with one million children. Other improvements made under the Trump Administration include the doubling of the child tax credit and paid family leave for government workers.

And let’s not forget our beloved veterans and the disabled who are also enjoying historically low unemployment and better economic mobility.

The president has also inked two major trade deals with the passage of the United States Mexico Agreement (USMCA) that’s estimated to create over 166,000 jobs and add $68.2 billion to the U.S. economy. Then there’s the historic trade deal with China, which is finally putting America’s interests first. The president will almost certainly mention both at the State of the Union.

On the foreign policy front ISIS and its deadly caliphate have been decimated, including the elimination of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and other dangerous terrorists threatening our safety, and that of our troops and allies.

With immigration the President is delivering on his promise to secure the porous border, build the wall and fix the broken system.

And then there’s the opioid crisis. “For the first time in 29 years, drug overdose deaths have dropped by 4.1% and life expectancy has increased by 4 years! Proud of this administration for ensuring a safer and healthier future for our nation’s children,” The First Lady tweeted on Saturday.

And let’s not forget the lowering of costs for prescription drugs. Under the Trump Administration we continue to witness year over year declines versus a 3.6% increase under the prior administration.

Bottom line: America is winning again. Don’t let the #FakeNews fool you.
