Trump’s economy isn’t helping working Americans
Trump has repeatedly claimed that today’s economy is “the greatest economy in the history of our country.” Here’s why that’s patently false:
- Job growth is down: After today’s most recent jobs report, job growth is down 15% under Trump compared to Obama-era levels, despite Trump’s promise to be the “greatest jobs president that God ever created.”
- Wages: Wage growth isn’t anywhere near where it should be. Despite slow growth, Trump blocked a minimum wage increase.
- Manufacturing: The American manufacturing sector is in decline and just suffered its weakest three-month stretch in seven years.
