In an article published by Fox News written by President Donald Trump himself, he summarizes his four years in office and details his commitments for the future should he be re-elected. At the same time, he criticized with determination the Democratic candidate Joe Biden who, dominated by leftist ideology, promises policies that would destroy the achievements of the last period.
President Trump, in his article, describes his four years in office and predicts the next period he will focus on three central aspects.
First he highlights the economic policies implemented that brought the United States in only four years to record levels of production and growth, after eight years of decline. Secondly, he mentioned the appearance of the CCP Virus as a break in his management, although he defends the way in which it is being attacked. Finally, he warns about the dangers of the policies proposed by Democratic candidate Joe Biden.
Regarding economic policies, President Trump emphasizes that he has concentrated his efforts on prioritizing the work of Americans above all else. That is why he has focused on developing jobs and the domestic market.
“In my first three years in office, our country added more than 7 million new jobs, including more than 500,000 in the manufacturing sector. Throughout that time, nearly 6.6 million Americans were lifted out of poverty, including nearly 2.8 million children.” President Trump noted.
Reaching those record numbers was no coincidence. Rather, it was the result of planning and political intent to generate growth from certain actions such as tax reductions from major tax reform and the drastic reduction of state bureaucracy through legislation that streamlined the process of free trade.
During the first three years of the administration, growth was exponential and sustained in almost all areas of the economy, with manufacturing and energy development being two fundamental pillars for the expansion of work and wealth.
The report, Income and Poverty in the United States developed by the Census Bureau for the period 2019, was presented on Sept. 15 and showed the overwhelming and undisputed success of the economic recovery produced under the Trump administration in 2019 and early 2020 until the arrival of the CCP Virus.
With the arrival of the virus, the economy suffered a sharp contraction. However, the policies applied made it possible for the economy not to suffer an irretrievable blow and the foundations were laid for a rapid recovery that is already having amazing effects. The U.S. economy grew at an annualized rate of 33.1 percent in the third quarter of 2020.
Over the past several months, “more than 159 million Americans received direct financial assistance during the pandemic. Meanwhile, our Paycheck Protection Program helped protect 51 million American jobs, allocating more than $525 billion in forgivable loans to more than 5.2 million small businesses.
President Trump warned that the biggest threat to the gains made is the potential presidency of Joe Biden, who President Trump said is tied to an agenda that will destroy all gains made.
“Now he’s campaigning on a $4 trillion tax hike—one of the largest in American history—just as the economy begins to recover from a global pandemic.” The opposite of the policies that have worked over the past few years.
the president also highlighted Biden’s intention to continue with the closure of the economy using the CCP Virus as an excuse, and the intentions to reopen trade to the world and especially to the Chinese Communist Party, going against local industrial development and “America First” policies.
“This country has seen politicians like Biden before. He will surrender U.S. jobs to foreign countries, surrender our future to the virus, and surrender our country to the radical, socialist left.”
President Trump concluded by stating, A vote for me is a vote for jobs, safety, rule of law, lower taxes, protection of your Second Amendment, and freedom.”
