Thursday at the Republican retreat in West Virginia, President Donald Trump said Democrats didn’t applaud during State of the Union for his remarks on low African American and Hispanic unemployment because they would “rather see us not do well than see our country do great.”
Trump said, “We’ve created 2.4 million jobs. That’s unthinkable. And that doesn’t include all of the things that are happening. You’re going to see numbers that get even better. The stock market has added more than $8 trillion in new wealth. Unemployment claims at a 45-year low, which is something. After years of wage stagnation, we are finally seeing rising wages. African-American and Hispanic unemployment have both reached the lowest levels ever recorded. That’s something very, very special.”

While I applaud President Trump and the work he is doing. I can’t help but remember how the republicans acted just after Obama was elected. They said out right that they wanted Obama to fail and were willing to stop any progress for the American people to make it happen. This is much the same attitude the democrats are now taking. I did not appreciate it from the republicans then and I do not appreciate it from the democrats now. Congress works for the people. It should not matter who is in the White House, they should do what is right for us. Then they can argue about who should get the credit. But the people and the country come first.
