When President Trump took office, he said job one was growing the economy. Since then, we focused on undoing regulations, unleashing our energy potential, changing the tax code, and rolling back parts of Dodd-Frank.
Our economic agenda is working. Look at the results:
The economy is growing at TWICE the rate it did under President Obama.
Middle-class income is the highest in American history.
Total unemployment is at its lowest rate in nearly 50 years.
African-American unemployment is at the lowest rate ever recorded.
Four million new jobs have been created.
We are in the middle of a major economic turnaround, and Georgia is seeing this firsthand.
During President Trump's first year, household income in Georgia grew by 4.3%.Now, the average Georgia family is taking home $4,200 more.
Under President Trump, the percent of Georgia's population living below the poverty line has decreased by 2.1% and is at its lowest point since 2006.
Claims for unemployment insurance in Georgia have fallen by nearly 17% since President Trump was elected and recently fell to their lowest level since 1974.
This economic growth is critical to solving our national debt crisis, and we need to keep up the momentum.
