President Donald Trump “is a true champion of the middle class,” former Gov. Mike Huckabee wrote Friday in an opinion piece praising his economic policies for Fox News.

“Remarkably, median household income has increased by more than $4,000 since Trump’s inauguration, meaning that the president’s pro-growth policies managed to grow the income of middle America by 6.8 percent in less than three years,” the former governor writes.

Huckabee goes on to compare Trump to his predecessor, former President Barack Obama, who entered office during the “Great Recession,” one of the country’s worst economic periods in decades. He touts Trump’s passing the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which Huckabee describes as his “most high-profile economic policy accomplishment,” and claims it added “an average of an extra $5,500” to the average worker’s bank account.

“Equally important, however, have been his less-noticed successes, such as slashing the burdensome and unnecessary federal regulations that proliferated under Obama and stifled entrepreneurialism in this country,” he writes.

“The future of the great American middle class is in our hands. Prior to President Trump, it had been decades since working Americans had a true champion in the White House, and it could be decades more before another one comes along,” Huckabee concludes. “We simply can’t afford to miss out on the opportunity for four more years of progress in the strong and growing Trump economy.”
