Day 99 and Trump’s Economy Isn’t Winning

American Bridge Vice President and Trump War Room Director Shripal Shah issued the following statement after data released by the Commerce Department showed that the U.S. economy grew at its slowest pace in 3 years under Donald Trump:

“99 days into his presidency and Trump’s economy isn’t winning. Job creation isn’t meeting expectations, and in fact, more than 75,000 Americans have been notified of plant closings and layoffs since he took office. Trump is, by his own admission, in over his head and now the country is paying the price.”
