Trump Praises US Economy Ahead of Camp David Meetings

Friday, 05 January 2018 02:10 PM

President Donald Trump praised the strength of the U.S. economy ahead of meetings at Camp David with congressional Republicans.

Trump told reporters on the South Lawn that the "tax cuts are really kicking in" after Congress passed a package of tax cuts at the end of 2017. He notes that many companies have provided their employees with end-of-year bonuses.

And the president also praised the December jobs report, which found U.S. employers added 148,000 jobs in December and the unemployment rate stayed at 4.1 percent, the lowest level since 2000.

The president is meeting with Republican congressional leaders and members of his Cabinet on Friday and Saturday to discuss the 2018 agenda.

Trump said, "We have a lot of things to work on, a lot of things to accomplish."
