The American dream is back

Adriana Cohen on

If you watched the State of the Union address Tuesday night, then there's no denying President Donald Trump is delivering a broad spectrum of victories for the American people.

Don't let power-obsessed Democrats or the fake news media fool you.

On the jobs front, the Trump administration has created almost 7 million to date -- including 500,000 manufacturing jobs -- ushering in a blue-collar boom where wages are growing faster for workers than managers, shrinking the income inequality gap.

The latest blowout jobs report reflects a golden age of prosperity. "Private employers added 291,000 jobs in January, soaring past economists' expectations for the best monthly gain in more than five years, according to the latest ADP National Employment Report," reports Fox Business. "The total far exceeded the 156,000 jobs that economists surveyed by Refinitiv were expecting."

Result? Millions of Americans have been lifted out of poverty under the Trump administration and are now on track to achieve the American dream. This includes women who, for the first time since the Great Recession, now outnumber men in the workforce. In December 2019, Labor Department data showed that women occupy 76.2 million jobs and comprise 50.04% of the workforce.

So contrary to what Elizabeth Warren supporters may believe, we don't need a female president to deliver wins for women. What our country needs is simply a competent president with decades of business experience -- like Donald Trump -- who knows how to grow the economy.


What young millennials, particularly those on the left, should understand is that achieving prosperity for America isn't about identity politics or gender. It's about sound leadership.

Under the current administration, median household income is the highest in decades, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average, Nasdaq and S&P 500 continue to notch record highs. Both Main Street and Wall Street are winning in the Trump economy.

Those things aren't good luck or accidental. They're the results of capitalism and a Republican president who passed the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and removed job-killing regulations that were stifling the business sector under the prior administration.

The president has also delivered on his promise to renegotiate bad trade deals that were harming the U.S. economy for decades, particularly manufacturers, and bleeding jobs. No more. The president has succeeded in replacing NAFTA with the USMCA, which will create 177,000 jobs and add $68 billion to the U.S. economy.
