With a little more than nine months until the 2020 presidential election, the national conversation should be very different. The economy is booming in every possible way you could measure. There are more job openings than job seekers, and the unemployment rate has reached its lowest point in the last 50 years. Seven million new jobs have been created, leading to African-American, Hispanic, and veteran unemployment rates setting all-time lows.
Democrats know they cannot win in this climate, and so they have decided to impeach the president.
Business is booming, with tax reform and the cutting of regulatory red tape, giving American businesses more confidence than ever in our economic future. The Opportunity Zones initiative I included in the tax reform package has already led to more than $67 billion in committed, private investments in our nation’s low-income communities. By doubling the child tax credit and the standard deduction, tens of millions of families are keeping more of their hard-earned money in their own pockets.
