Trump is targeting 3% economic growth, and he is 70% there just 5 months after inauguration.
The business man in President Trump is making Americans richer and happier as S&P 500 is up more than 12 percent since Election Day, and unemployment has reached a 16-year low.
According to The Hill:
“The economy is emerging as a bright spot for President Trump as he struggles to move his congressional agenda amid a series of controversies.
The S&P 500 is up more than 12 percent since Election Day, unemployment has reached a 16-year low and economic growth in the coming year is expected to reach 2.3 percent, more robust growth than the 1.6 percent it grew in 2016.
Trump sought to play up his handling of the economy again on Friday at an event to end a week meant to highlight his efforts on legislation to fund new infrastructure projects across the country.
“We are here to think big, to act boldly, and to rise above the petty partisan squabbling of Washington, D.C. We are here to take action. It’s time to start building in our country, with American workers and with American iron and aluminum and steel,” Trump said in a speech at the Department of Transportation.
Trump has often gotten in his own way when it comes to publicizing his handling of the economy.
After James Comey’s testimony eclipsed Trump’s planned infrastructure week, he and first daughter Ivanka Trump will embark on a roadshow this week highlighting workforce development and job creation in the Midwest, including new German-style apprenticeship initiatives.
Ivanka Trump told reporters she hoped to “raise awareness about the fact that there are important and very viable and respectable career paths outside of a traditional four-year college experience.”
On the economy, Trump’s figures are better, which suggests he’d be wise to focus more of his time on touting them.”
