President Donald J. Trump's Leadership on the Economy is Making A Difference For All Americans

President Donald J. Trump's Leadership on the Economy is Making A Difference For All Americans

The President’s agenda is defying critics 
Last week, calculations of America’s economic growth rate for the fourth quarter of 2017 were revised upward to show growth of nearly 3 percent. “That revision didn’t get nearly as much attention as when the initial read of that quarter’s growth came in below expectations at 2.6 percent,” Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney said.
Director Mulvaney delivered his verdict: Too many on the left and in the media will pounce on any news they can to throw doubt on the effectiveness of President Donald J. Trump’s economic agenda.
But the economy is booming, as nearly any statistic you could pick makes clear:
  • The U.S. unemployment rate in February marked a 17-year low.
  • The number of Americans rating the economy good to excellent has hit an 18-year high.
  • Average job growth numbers in 2018 are the strongest since 1997.
  • Since January 2017, more than 2.5 million jobs have been added to the economy.

National public health advisory 
Speaking at a National drug abuse summit in Atlanta yesterday, U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams announced his office’s first National public health advisory in 13 years. The Surgeon General urged more Americans to carry naloxone, a potentially lifesaving medication that can reverse the effects of an opioid overdose.
"You don't have to be a policeman or a firefighter or a paramedic to save a life," Dr. Adams said.
Earlier this week, the Surgeon General praised President Trump’s leadership in the fight against opioid abuse. The President’s opioid initiative “marks a significant moment in our national effort to reverse the deadly trends we have seen,” Dr. Adams wrote.

What to know about the President’s National Guard order To give our Border Patrol agents the support they deserve, President Trump has authorized the deployment of National Guard units to America’s southern border.
Our Border Patrol agents work incredibly hard to do their jobs. These law enforcement personnel are tasked with securing thousands of miles of border, and they often do not have the manpower or resources necessary to address the flow of illegal immigration into the United States.
President Trump is taking this action because Congressional Democrats have obstructed efforts to secure our border. While the President will use every ounce of his existing powers to protect American national security, Congress must deliver a lasting fix to this problem.
