The latest Census Bureau data shows that more than 1.2 million households have moved into the middle class since 2016 when President Donald Trump was elected.
60 percent of respondents had household income of at least $50,000 in 2018, the new figures show. A full 30 percent of households earned between $50,000 and $99,999 in 2018, a growth rate that is the fastest since 1968.
Month-to-month, Trump has been breaking records since taking office. Unemployment is at record-low levels and some months, there have been more open jobs than people looking for employment.
Census data bore these figures out, showing that more than 2.3 million jobs have been created since Trump took office.
No wonder Democrats didn’t talk about the economy once during their presidential primary debate last week. What could they say that didn’t hurt themselves and benefit Trump?
