Beautiful figures Mr President and as Bill C. once said it’s about the economy stupid. Nancy stamps her feet while Trump’s makes the economy soar quite a contrast there.

When I visited America during Obama’s tenure all I heard was how bad the economy was, no money around, maybe an explanation for losses in both midterms in record numbers.

Gee where is everyone, well I suppose some only like it when the article is stacked in their favour, how sad and really said a lot, har har

ya, almost everyone that comments on this website = "orange man bad". Interesting they still have nothing to say about these facts.

This is why the Democrats are having to resort to collusion hoaxes and phoney allegations against the AG. That is all they have left.

What happened to the firm predictions from a couple of years ago that the US and global economies would be heading south?

The IMF, Davos, globalist mafia get it wrong...again.

Yet there is a big debt to fuel this expansion. The deficit has exploded under Trump.

global economies would be heading south?

The global economies are slowing even China while the US economy is growing that’s why 3.2 is amazing. The figure at 3% is the sweet spot for growth, it provides jobs and higher wages without overheating the economy, I remember before Trump’s win the usual suspects were predicting the economy and the Dow would crash and he would start ww3, har har

Did you know Obama added more to the national debt than the previous 43 presidents combined and because the economy never really performed well under him he couldn’t offer tax relief as Trump has, the Middle classes were heavily burdened thoughout his tenure.

OZ ninja, President George W Bush is the all time winner of the deficient and adding to the national debt, doubling it in 8 years.

The lowest unemployment rate in a half century. More than 260,000 new jobs. And higher hourly wages.

Now, remember, none of this would have happened without former President Obama!

 happened without former President Obama

Yes that is the mantra and if repeated often enough becomes fact, awkward when you point out that Obama finished his tenure in 2016, oh well.

Yuri,

Are you mixing up Reagan with Bush? I think he out spent Bush by a long way. With Trump we won’t know until he finishes in 2025 but he has added a fair amount but having said that Trump resides over a solid economy and has provided tax cuts.

I’ll say this, the present economic report with steady growth and lowest unemployment in 50yrs with rising wages would have jolted the Democrats and they will look to divert attention away, oh I know let’s put a chicken statue in Barr’s chair, yeah that’ll do it.

“The lowest unemployment rate in a half century. More than 260,000 new jobs. And higher hourly wages.”

@Serrano

Now, remember, none of this would have happened without former President Obama!

And Millard Filmore, the last Whig president.

This economic news even should it continue probably won’t influence many as yet undecided voters in 2020. By that time there will have been nearly 4 years of “Trump is Hitler” drum beating. It’s like being nagged by a shrill woman. You either throw your hands up and concede or let her leave, i.e. hope the Democrats go the way of the Whigs. However, it would almost be worth voting for Bernie so a “Bernie is Stalin” campaign could begin.

@zichi

Trump, since taking office, has added $2 trillion to the national debt. 

Explain why that is a problem.

Trump, since taking office, has added $2 trillion to the national debt. You can't buy success you have to make it. Trump will increase national debt by $4-5 trillion.

Ok, but what does that have to do with the booming economy and job hiring? Especially in the blue collar industry. 56% approval on the economy....and the only thing that the Democrats care about is Russia, boy are they dumb. They’re making a second term for Trump too easy, thanks Nadler and Nancy, you got my respects.
