Perez and Pelosi Do Not Like President Trump’s Economic Policies
Key Dem party leaders do not agree with or like US President Donald Trump in part because his economic policies following a July jobs report that showed the U.S. added 157,000 jobs and unemployment fell to 3.9% Friday.
Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairman Tom Perez released a statement Friday, calling President Trump’s policies “reckless,” claiming they primarily benefited “rich executives.”
“Donald Trump’s reckless policies continue to hurt millions of hardworking families. Despite the promises Donald Trump made to the American people, Trump’s economy isn’t helping most Americans,” Mr. Perez said. “Corporations have used their tax windfalls to line the pockets of their rich executives, not to increase wages for their workers.”
In a statement on her website, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) criticized the economy, calling the President’s policies a “tax scam for the rich” and pledging Democrats would strive to “clean up corruption to make Washington work for the people.”
“July’s jobs report shows that the wealthiest 1% and big corporations continue to hoard the benefits of the GOP Tax Scam for the rich, while American workers are denied the bigger paychecks they deserve,” Ms. Pelosi said.
“Hard-working Americans continue to be stuck paying the price for the Republicans’ special interest agenda,” she ranted. “The American people deserve so much better than the raw deal they are getting from the cynical Republican special interest agenda.”
Though the number of jobs added to the economy fell below the 190,000 economists predicted, the reason was due to a shortage of workers to fill job vacancies, according to theNational Federation of Independent Business.
Mr. Perez claims, “Republicans want to keep rewarding the rich,” while explaining Democrats “want to build an economy that works for everyone.” He promised Democrats would “…fight for the economic opportunities every working family deserves.”
