4 Reasons Trump Is Seeing GDP Growth Obama Didn’t

If it’s true that President Obama’s economy was anemic because he “inherited the worst recession since World War II” from former President George W Bush, the so-called “Great Recession,” how do you explain the fact that Trump has presided over three consecutive quarters of economic growth of 3 percent or more for the first time…

Sorry Ivanka, Paid Family Leave Is Not Compassionate
