Was 2018 as bad as the Left says? NO! Is Trump’s economy that good? Or was it Obama’s economy?!?
2018 was a successful year for Americans.
– United States reached a staggering level of oil production, pumping 11.6 million barrels per day and is now the world’s largest oil producer for the first time since 1973.
– United States remains the largest producer of natural gas and the second-greatest producer of coal.
– Economy grew by 4.2 percent in the second quarter of 2018, and by 3.4 percent in the third quarter.
– American GDP is nearly $1.7 trillion larger than in January 2017
– Unemployment fell to a near-record peacetime low of 3.7 percent. Lowest since 1969.
– Poverty rate is also near a historic low, and household income increased.
– 312,000 Jobs added in December, manufacturing growing 714% faster under Trump than Obama
Electoral college, the wisdom behind setting us up that way.
