Liberals False Claims After 2018 State of the Union Address

Liberals have been burning social media with their attacks on President Donald Trump. They claim that the economy was recovering because of Obama. Really? So they are claiming it took eight years for Obama to move the nation out of a recession and grow the economy despite the fact that he NEVER had a 3 per cent GDP growth during his entire administration. He rarely had two per cent. Their words and actions show that Trump is devastating the Obama legacy.  Remember Obama announced that the slow growth was “the new norm”.

They are so desperate to push their left wing ideology they have engaged in multiple name calling tweets, comments, remarks, etc. laced with expletives against the president while ignoring what he has achieved for all Americans especially the common man. They are like the verbal school bully who screams and shouts to intimidate others.

History demonstrated that as soon as Trump was elected president, Wall Street and the economy took off in an upward surge. Scores of corporate presidents and CEOs have publicly admitted that the growth in business this year was due to Trump’s tax cuts and deregulations. Their words demonstrate the left’s lies.

Let’s take a recent example.  The day after Trump’s first State of the Union Address, Tyler Durden of Zero Hedge reported that the Labor Department reported that “Trump’s First Year Saw Americans’ Compensation Rise At Fastest Pace Since 2008”. He wrote, “…, private-sector wages and salaries rose from a year earlier by 2.8 percent, also matching the best gain of this expansion. Several industry groups registered increases of 3 percent or higher, led by transportation and material moving at 3.5 percent and service occupations at 3.3 percent, underscoring demand for labor.”

ADP/Moody’s Analytics had another crushing report supporting Trump’s economic plans.  In January, 2018 there were 234,000 jobs created. The prediction was there would only be 185,000. In December it was predicted there would only be 148,000 jobs created but the prediction was way off. Instead there 242,000 jobs that opened up.

Job creation under President Trump has boomed and no false narratives by the left wing can change these facts and the fact that major corporations will be creating over 2.5 million jobs in the future.  The CEOs publicly announced these new jobs will be created because of Trump’s economic policies.

But wait, the Atlanta Federal Reserve projects the economy will grow to 4.2 per cent in the first quarter of 2018.  According to the FED, “Economic growth overall has been solid….”

The Democrats and far left liberals are playing a losing game because the facts contradict their statements. Their Trump bashing and unwillingness to face the fact that Obama failed will eventually have consequences for them. By ignoring Trump’s achievements and their unwillingness to cooperate in building a better America, they will suffer in the 2018 elections. The common man is finally being served by a president who is working hard to keep his promises and is making history. As a mid-western woman told me recently, “The hard working common man is no longer being ignored. They have a champion in Trump.”
