All Americans today are reaping the benefits of the Trump administration’s economic policies. Employment is at an all-time high; black and Hispanic unemployment is at record lows. December’s tax cuts doubled the tax credits for school-age children and raised take-home pay for nearly all American taxpayers. Incomes have risen in real terms for the first time in 18 years, tax refunds next year that will be substantially larger, 2 million-plus poor Americans are no longer on food stamps.
