America is thriving under President Donald Trump’s leadership, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., says.
McCarthy made his comments in a column posted Tuesday by Fox News. It came just hours before Trump was to deliver his State of the Union address.
“A recap of the past month presents a snapshot of President Trump’s first term,” he said. “We are stronger and safer, and the ripple effects of renewed prosperity are being felt nationwide.
“Within a few short weeks, this administration went after notorious terrorists, signed two major trade initiatives, unveiled a Middle East peace plan and gave Americans reassurance that the next century will be ours.
“While the president is delivering on promises made, congressional Democrats continue to do everything possible to stop American progress.”
He accused Democrats of wanting “to overlook realty.” And he said Americans are “living through the best economy in modern history.”
“The historically low unemployment rate is holding steady at 3.5% and millions of jobs have been added to U.S. payrolls since January 2017,” he said.
And McCarthy maintained consumer confidence is “only going to strengthen thanks to Trump’s major economic achievements."
“At this year's State of the Union, the country and Congress will hear directly from the president on how he has delivered on promises made and how he will continue to pave the path to the best years our country has ever experienced," he said.
