President Donald Trump has had to do battle with hordes of anti-Trump politicians and media that, up until he was elected, were sure that Hillary Clinton would win. Remember their polls? Ha. And now they’re running the same line of BS about the Republican party, who they claim will lose in droves come November of this year.
Trump just reassured a large crowd exactly why the GOP will maintain both houses of Congress and continue to Make America Great Again.
President Donald Trump praised the GOP majority in Congress at the National Republican Congressional Committee March Dinner on Tuesday and declared that Republicans would win the midterm elections.
“Our Republican majority is one of the most successful in the history of the United States Congress,” he declared. “Now, we must work to keep our majority so we can keep up the fight for American workers, American security, and the American values enshrined in our glorious Constitution and in our great American flag.”
President Trump touched on the upcoming midterm elections saying, “This year, in this election, we are fighting to win, and we are going to win. Just no reason why we shouldn’t win with what we’ve done over the last year. No reason whatsoever.”
He continued, “We love our country. We cherish our liberty. And we always put America first. If you notice, we’re doing that on trade. We’re doing that on a lot of things. America first. It’s about time. It’s about time.”
President Trump also praised the Republican agenda on taxes, jobs, and the economy, touting several statistics that favor the White House.
“We’ve created more than 3 million new jobs since the election,” he said. “And if we would have said that number prior to the election, nobody would have believed it possible. Jobless claims are at, think of it, jobless claims are at a nearly 50-year low. Fifty years.”
Trump also mentioned the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, a $1.5 trillion tax cut the president and GOP lawmakers pushed through Congress. “More than 6 million Americans have already received a tax cut bonus or a pay raise, and that is just the beginning,” he said.
Later, Trump said, “Our victories are Americans’ victories because the Republican Party is now the party of the American worker, the American family, and the American Dream.”
