Donald Trump 2020

Ohio the comeback state

Stephen Moore, Washington Times

Donald Trump’s tax cuts, deregulation policies and pro-America energy policies have been a financial lightning bolt in Ohio — as they have been for so many states. All told, the Buckeye State is shattering economic vitality records on Mr. Trump’s watch. The number of available jobs just recently set a 21-year record, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. And payrolls just reached a record 5.6 million last month. Seven or eight years ago, you would see shuttered buildings in Ohio with For Sale signs. Now you see bustling businesses with “help wanted” signs nearly everywhere. Ohio is no longer the Rust Belt. It’s an arsenal of growth.
