Growth revised upward to 4.2 percent, Trump winning

Aug. 29, 2018, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement in response to the latest GDP numbers:

“The second quarter of 2018 was even better than initially thought by the Bureau of Economic Analysis, with an upward revision to 4.2 percent inflation-adjusted GDP growth. It is clear that the Trump trade, tax and deregulation doctrine is unleashing the pent-up economic potential in our economy. When combined with third quarter trade announcements with the European Union and now Mexico, the Trump economy is just beginning to take off. That is great news for all Americans.”
