President Donald Trump touted some of his accomplishments regarding the economy and other topics in a new opinion piece published ahead of Tuesday’s midterm elections.
Writing for Fox News, Trump talked about the strong jobs situation, the Republican Party’s tax cuts that were signed into law last Christmas, and the slashing of regulations that his administration has focused on.
“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,” Trump wrote.
“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.”
The piece then provided specific examples, such as the 4.5 million jobs that have been created since Trump took office and the tax cuts that were designed to save Americans money.
Trump echoed what he’s been saying for weeks as he stumps for Republican candidates for the House, Senate and governor’s mansions: Democrats will throw America in reverse.
“If House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., take control of Congress, they will drag America back into the economic abyss we struggled so hard to climb out of,” Trump wrote.
