Washington, D.C.: The first quarter 2019 GDP numbers today soared high above expectations. GDP grew 3.2%, far past the expected 2% or less many predicted.
“Capitalism works and President Donald Trump understands that,” said Ed Martin, president of Phyllis Schlafly Eagles. “Thanks to executive actions and policies as well as Congressional action like the Tax Cut and Jobs Act, American workers and business are free to prosper and grow. Revenue is up. Wages are up. Unemployment is down. Minority unemployment is at all time lows. What we’re witnessing is the mark of a successful businessman at the helm of the American economy.
“America is roaring back. We owe much thanks to President Trump and his administration for facilitating the right conditions for our economy to grow and become an economic powerhouse once again.”
