As last month’s unemployment and economy reports are being released, one fact has become startlingly clear: Trump’s economic policies are working and making American great again. This is evident by the fact that over one million households have lifted themselves out of poverty since 2016 when Trump was sworn into office.
And yet, Democrats and several of those in media swear that we are headed straight for a recession. But, frankly, we don’t see how that is possible unless something significant changes.
The latest numbers nationwide prove that the economy is only growing and becoming more stable. Things are better for most Americans than they have been since 2001.
Let’s start with the nation’s poverty rate. Currently, it sits at 11.8% or slightly more than 38 million people. This is the lowest it has been since 2001 when about 11.7% of Americans lived in poverty.
Additionally, every demographic and age group except for adults over age 25 without a high school diploma have a poverty rate that has decreased.
This includes that of adults with a year-round, full-time position. Currently, it is 2.3%, a record low. Understandably, the poverty rate for those who don’t have jobs is significantly higher. These people have a poverty rate that is closer to 30%.
Experts believe this rise is partially due to more full-time jobs being available than ever before. More than two million full-time positions have been filled in the US in 2018 alone. And obviously, the more hours a person works, the more money they make on average.
And when it comes to the nation’s median income, the news is good for Trump as well. Right now, the average American makes just over $63,000.
This is significant because this is the highest it has ever been. American families are earning more than ever. And according to recent reports, that average is even higher within more substantial cities.
As people work more hours, crime rates go down considerably. So people are making more than ever, and communities are becoming safer at the same time. Basically, the only ones who don’t have a job, either refuse to or are incapable of doing so.
So all these liberal programs to give out food stamps, universal basic income, free healthcare, and make all colleges tuition-free are unneeded for people who can contribute to society through labor.
Trump has increased manufacturing jobs like no other GOP has in a long time. So much so that many democrats are switching sides. They don’t necessarily agree with everything on the Republican spectrum, and most would never call themselves members of the party.
But they aren’t blind. They recognize a president who is willing to fight for them when the leaders of their own party won’t.
Representative Ilhan Omar’s home state of Minnesota is just one of many that are seeing a large decrease in Democratic supporters. According to CNN, her constituents consistently say, “She offends a lot of people,” and “She’s not popular here.”
In fact, she has lost so much support that many are saying that she will be the driving force behind why the state will soon turn red in 2020.
Trump posted in July, “In 2016 I almost won Minnesota. In 2020, because of America hating anti-Semite Rep. Omar, & the fact that Minnesota is having its best economic year ever, I will win the State!”
Gone are the days when the Democratic Party was known as the “working man’s” party. Those who have left often say they didn’t leave the party, but that the party left them. And they aren’t wrong. The Democrats have abandoned the average American and what matters to them.
Trump, on the other hand, has proved to be one that will make changes to benefit them. He has increased manufacturing jobs, helped out coal miners, and made public policy changes and tax cuts that put more money in the pockets of Americans nationwide, regardless of race, industry, or background.
The average American’s quality of life has increased, and all the fingers point to Trump. Let’s just hope they recognize his generosity and reward him with another term in the White House.
