Trump-era economy: A rising tide is lifting all boats

Editors, Washington Examiner

We don’t think Trump deserves all the credit for the great economic numbers. Presidents do not actually control the economy. But Trump certainly deserves some credit. Republican tax cuts have created a more open and level playing field where investment more freely chases economic opportunity, rather than tax arbitrage. Deregulation has similarly unfettered business. Trump’s embrace of fracking has juiced the economy as well. In other words, Trump has gotten government out of the way, for the most part. In turn, American energy and enterprise has created a rising tide that is lifting all boats.
