President Trump presented a compelling editorial to the American people, focusing on the economic recovery that has taken place under GOP leadership. Fox News published the President’s Oped:
For many Americans, the Great Recession brought dark days we will never forget – and never want to repeat. It wasn’t long ago that economists told us sluggish growth and flat wages were here to stay.
Pundits talked about a “jobless recovery.” And politicians promised hope and change but never delivered.
But now, thanks to Republican leadership, the United States has the best economy in the history of our country – and hope has finally returned to cities and towns across America.
Since I was elected, we have created 4.5 million new jobs. In the last month alone, we added another 250,000 jobs, and nearly a half-million Americans returned to the workforce. We have added nearly 500,000 manufacturing jobs to our economy – jobs that many self-proclaimed experts said would never return.
This focused delivery is targeting swing voters, who aren’t sure whether the President’s overall performance merits further backing. With a strong job record, President Trump hopes that Americans will trust the current direction the country is going in, with a Dem control of Congress risking all the paycheck gains they’ve received.
