Straight From The White House

resolute reads


"The U.S. economy sits atop of the World Economic Forum’s annual global competitiveness survey for the first time since the 2007-2009 financial crisis,” Katanga Johnson reports. Under President Donald J. Trump, America scored high because of “its ‘vibrant’ entrepreneurial culture and ‘strong’ labor market and financial system,’” according to the WEF report.
Jeff Cox reports that job openings hit a record 7.136 million for the month of August, according to the Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey. “Openings dwarfed the total level of workers looking for jobs, which stood at 6.23 million for that month and fell to 5.96 million in September, recent Labor Department statistics show.”

“President Trump’s promise to cut Obama-era regulations has gone into overdrive, with the slashing generating $33 billion in savings, far more than expected,” Paul Bedard reports. “A new report from the White House budget office said that $23 billion in savings has occurred this year alone.”
-The Washington Post
In The Washington Post, Neomi Rao, Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, explains how the Trump Administration has cut regulations at breakneck speed. “When reviewing regulations, we start with a simple question: What is the problem this regulation is trying to fix? Unless otherwise required by law, we move forward only when we can identify a serious problem or market failure that would be best addressed by federal regulation.”
“It can’t get a whole lot better in the U.S. job market. Openings just hit a record high, the U.S. unemployment rate has fallen to a 48-year low of 3.7% and hiring remains robust,” Jeffry Bartash reports. The strong demand for American labor is pushing up wages and benefits, as well, fueling the longest economic expansion in U.S. history.

“As a result of ObamaCare, average premiums on the federal exchange jumped by 105 percent between 2013 and 2017,” CMS Administrator Seema Verma writes. But with President Trump’s reforms, “fortunately, these chaotic trends are now turning. For the first time since ObamaCare was enacted, the premium for a typical federal exchange plan—while still much too high—will drop.”
-The Wall Street Journal
President Trump, along with the First Lady, “toured hurricane-torn areas of Florida and Georgia on Monday, declaring that ‘nobody has seen anything like this’ as crews continued to restore power and residents grappled with the devastation,” Alex Leary reports. Addressing the work of first responders and volunteers, the President said the job they’ve done “has been incredible.”
-Washington Examiner
“The Obama administration released thousands of unaccompanied alien children to criminal sponsors,” writes Dr. Jason Piccolo, a former ICE Supervisor. “I know because I was the Homeland Security whistleblower who legally came forward in late 2015 to the U.S. Office of Special Counsel and to Sen. Chuck Grassley’s office about the releases . . . Only now is this serious and dangerous problem finally being dealt with.”
