Trump economic boom begins with 4.1 percent growth in Q2

July 27, 2018, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement in response to the latest GDP numbers:

“Today’s announcement that the second quarter GDP grew by 4.1 percent annualized is further proof that the Trump economic policies of tax cuts, deregulation and better trade deals are beginning to take hold. While there is still work to be done to reach a 3 percent annual growth rate for 2018, the accelerating economy demonstrates the kind of strength needed to meet or beat President Trump’s 3 percent GDP growth promise. But these are not just numbers out of Washington, D.C. Since Trump became President, the number of working age adults aged 16-64 not in the labor force has dropped by 2.5 million even as the population increased by more than 938,000. This isn’t about statistics, this about people’s lives and people’s hopes and dreams coming true. That’s what truly matters.”
