"Just out: Real GDP rose 3.2% year-on-year in the first quarter, well above expectations or forecasts, but it's important that inflation is VERY LOW." REVENUE AMERICA! "
Despite their warnings, the headlines – growth and jobs – remain strong, and Trump is more than happy to take credit and give it to the experts. While countries in Europe and Asia are presenting troubling reports on gross domestic product, the US continues to boast and the importance of Trump can not be stressed enough.
He must have the record-breaking economic expansion that was just going on for a decade. Especially if he wants to defy his own low approval rates and the inflamed democratic voters who want to indict him for obstruction of the judiciary because of impeachment.
The Experts and economists will increase strong preliminary GDP by 3.2% The growth rate published on Friday suggests that this could be deceptive in the long run for a variety of reasons, and they will say they are still cooling on the horizon.
But for the time being, Trump has promised growth. And the economy has grown. Full end.
He oversaw two years of economic expansion that began early in the Obama administration, and yet he won the election in 2016 because of so many Rust Belt voters.
Now Democrats Fighting Trump By 2020, people will talk about how they will deal with inequality, convince the same Rust Belt voters he's delivered to them, and that his permanent tax cuts for businesses help them too.
Take Erie, Pennsylvania. Trump only narrowly won the area in 2016, but the Democrats withdrew in mid-2018.
Macroeconomic indicators such as GDP growth and employment growth are unlikely to resonate there. That's why Dick Crosby, who owns the Girard Dinor Diner in Girard outside of Erie, considers Trump unbeatable in 2020.
"You can visit almost any store here and see a sign on the window looking for help, you can find people who work, that tells you something is going well," Crosby told CNN's Miguel Marquez.
Others in Erie do not like the president, but that does not stop them from voting for him.
"He's not a guy I want to drink beer or play golf with," said Chris Trott, a 28-year-old Barack Obama voter who decided in favor of Trump in 2016. I'll vote for him again. " because what he does seems to work. "
Trott is considering the possibility of hiring the first full-time employee for the vehicle modification business, Erie Fleet Solutions, which he opened four years ago.
That's Trump's way to a second win, no matter how many fraudulent Facebook ads find their way into Russia's political conversation. In a CNN poll conducted by SSRS in March, Trump's approval was, as always, below 50%.
"Overall, 71% say that the nation's economy is in good shape, the highest since February 2001 and the best rating during Trump's presidency with two points," she wrote. "A majority gives the president positive assessments of his dealings with the nation's economy (51% agree) and his overall approval rating has reached as much as 42% in the new poll, with the 51% saying they reject the president's overall workload This is the lowest percentage of CNN polls since the beginning of his presidency. "
Almost a quarter of voters said that the economy is the most important issue the country faces when it joins the midterms of the country Year 2018 the Democrats took control of the House of Representatives. Republicans gained 63% to 34%. If Trump can get more voters to vote on this than health services, that's a very good thing for him.
And the Democrats know it clearly. Former Vice President Joe Biden's only argument for running is that he can rebuild the Democratic Blue Wall in the Rust Belt and bring the country back to Trump thinking.
The Democrats, who lost the Rust Belt and the White House in 2016 because the white working-class voters in the Rust Belt lagged behind, had it back in 2018 because the same voters feared they might lose their health care. But what will their argument be if these voters feel good about Trump's economy?
