More than 4.5 million jobs created since President Trump took office

Nov. 2, 2018, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement on the latest jobs numbers:

“America is working and making money again with more than 4.5 million more people employed since January 2017 when President Trump took office, near record low unemployment rates for African-Americans, Hispanics, Asians and whites, the Trump economy is a rising sea that lifts all boats.  Beyond the great news about job growth, wages increased nationally by 3.1 percent over the past twelve months ending in September 2018, giving Americans a much needed, inflation beating raise.  To make matters even better inflation is running at 2.3 percent annually (not seasonally adjusted) with the seasonally adjusted increase over the past six months registering 0.9 percent.

“The President’s policies of lower taxes, stripping away regulatory burdens and an aggressive trade policy are paying dividends for America and for Americans.  It would be foolish to return to the low growth, lower expectations and no hope economy represented by a potential Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who wants to turn America into the dirty streets of San Francisco.”
