According to this article in the Washington Post, “Blue-collar jobs are growing at their fastest rate in more than 30 years, helping fuel a hiring boom in many small towns and rural areas that are strong supporters of President Trump ahead of November’s midterm elections. Jobs in goods-producing industries — mining, construction and manufacturing — grew 3.3 percent in the year preceding July, the best rate since 1984, according to a Washington Post analysis.”

Let’s be clear about this. The Obama administration’s policies hurt blue collar jobs, especially mining and construction jobs. They’re the lost voters that President Trump identified, targeted, then turned out. When President Obama attempts to pitch his fiction that the Trump economy is just a continuation of President Obama’s economy, it’s our affirmative responsibility to highlight the fact that he forgot about people who didn’t live in cities and suburbs. That’s why they turned out in such astonishing numbers for President Trump.

Larry Kudlow was on FBN today to tout President Trump’s results. During the interview, Kudlow said “We are now entering into a capitol goods/business investment spending boom, more productivity, more capital per worker, more training, higher wages. Watch the entire interview here:

The Obama fiction is starting to unravel. It’s disgusting for him to take credit for the great things that are happening beyond the jobs numbers. For instance, President Obama didn’t have anything to do with the revival in the energy industry just like he didn’t have anything to do with the upswing in pipeline manufacturing. Those things happened in spite of him, not because of him.

Finally, President Trump should put Larry Kudlow and Kevin Hassett in front of the cameras more often. Their presentations have been informative and entertaining.
