Trump just got one number that Nancy Pelosi fears above all
President Trump is smacking Nancy Pelosi with loss after loss.
Despite her being Speaker of the House, it’s clear that Trump is calling the shots.
And he just got one number that Nancy Pelosi fears above all.
Trump’s America-first policies are working better than anybody in the media was predicting.
Every move he makes in the economy is helping everyday Americans, who in turn are jumping on the Trump train.
And the latest unemployment numbers prove that.
The number of Americans in the last week who applied for new unemployment benefits reached new lows, with 16,000 less applying than the week before.
This is a promising sign for the economy, and is especially good for Trump considering this is coming just after he imposed a new series of tariffs, which the media was claiming would harm the economy.
Breitbart News reports:
The number of Americans filing applications for new unemployment benefits plunged lower last week even as trade tensions between the U.S. and China escalated.
New claims for state unemployment benefits declined by 16,000 to a seasonally adjusted 212,000 for the week ended May 11, the Labor Department said on Thursday.
Initial jobless claims are a proxy for layoffs. The low number of claims suggests that rising tariffs and retaliation by China have not hurt American workers.
Claims were expected to decline to 219,000 from the elevated levels seen in the prior three weeks.
Unemployment is hitting historic lows, with minority unemployment being at the lowest rate in U.S. history.
With that trend continuing, Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the Democrat Party are going to have a hard time come 2020.
Every time the economy improves under Trump, he gets a sizeable boost to his approval rate, which is nearing an average of 50%, with some polls already showing him at a higher approval than that.
He has consistently been holding a higher approval rating than former President Barack Obama did at the same point in his presidency.
So if Obama could win despite having a lower approval rating, Trump clearly has a very good chance, regardless of what the mainstream media is claiming.
