Imagine how the economy would take off if Congressional Republicans actually supported President Trump instead of working behind the scenes to derail the voter-approved Trump agenda.
Today an Investors.com report indicates U.S. household incomes have just hit a 15-year high, far surpassing the tepid economy that was the hallmark of the Obama era. In fact, in the first three months of his presidency, Donald Trump has already put more money into the pockets of American families than Barack Obama did in 7 1/2 years. Remarkable!
“For eight years, President Obama endlessly talked about “middle class” economics. All the while, middle-class family incomes were stagnant. Now they are on the rise. Could Trumponomics be the reason?
…Another way to look at it: median income has climbed faster in President Trump’s first three months in office than it did during 7-1/2 years of Obama’s economic “recovery.”
…it seems reasonable to conclude that this is an early sign that Trump’s business-friendly economic approach — one that involves cutting taxes, deregulating the economy, repealing ObamaCare, and dialing back the size of government — is already paying dividends.”
If Congress would find a spine and get on board the Trump Train the American economy would enjoy a rate of growth and expansion not seen in generations.
It seems that kind of success for Middle Class America is not a high priority among the nation’s political “leaders.”
The sky has not fallen as so many on the left predicted should Donald Trump win the 2016 Election. In fact, the stock market is on the rise, companies are hinting at mass job creation, and overall, Americans are feeling more economically confident now than they have in years.
Mario Longhi is the Brazilian-born CEO of U.S. Steel (ironic, yeah?) and today on CNBC, he cited the “oppressive” Obama era as the reason so many jobs had to leave the United States, and then just as quickly, promised that now with Donald Trump as president, those jobs could be on their way back!
The Trump Effect = Yet more high-paying jobs coming to America.
Donald Trump is helping the Republican Party like no candidate since Ronald Reagan. The pathetic “NeverTrump” crowd would not have you know of this phenomena now being called the, “Trump Effect”, but it appears to be very real and directly responsible for the party growing its base and potentially expanding its numbers in both the House and the Senate.
Check out this excerpt from a just-released PoliZett report:
Sweeney rejected the notion that Trump at the top of the ticket hurts other Pennsylvania Republicans. She pointed to his blowout win in the Keystone State’s GOP primary.
“Donald Trump won every county,” she said. “He’s generated a lot of enthusiasm among the Republican base.”
The NeverTrump faction (which has been further marginalized in recent weeks) warned repeatedly that Trump would harm the re-election chances of senators from critical battleground states.
As of now, they have been proven patently wrong:

In actuality, at least for now, it appears the Trump Train is rolling, driven primarily by tens of millions of supportive American voters, and woe to those Democrats and Republicans who stand in its way.
