As many of you know, our state dinner will take place in just a few weeks on September 21st. We are thrilled to have Kellyanne Conway join us
as the keynote speaker for the evening, and are looking forward to a great night full of support for our president and party.
The August jobs report once again shows what a strong economy we continue to enjoy under President Trump’s leadership. In August alone the U.S. added 130,000 jobs, nearly half of which were filled by women. Wage growth remains strong, at 3.2% in August – the 13th month in a row of 3% or better. These numbers show nothing but support for the fact that President Trump’s economy is working for all Americans.
While we maintain our focus on the thriving U.S. economy, the Democrats continue talking about radical agendas surrounding climate change. Some of their proposals include the banning of plastic straws, carbon taxes, government control of lightbulbs and meat, and the elimination of commercial air travel. These policies will only result in crushed industries, higher taxes, and and a drastic change in Americans’ everyday choices.
As we look towards 2020, let’s remember our values and what we stand for. Higher taxes and the elimination of an American classic, the hamburger, are not included. President Trump has kept his promises, and our country is thriving. Let’s continue working for another four great years of President Trump’s leadership.
