More BS and #FakeNews From AXIOS: Study Actually Shows Flipped Counties Saw Economic Growth – Just the Opposite of AXIOS Report

Guest post by Joe Hoft

2018 Was Year of the Worker Thanks to President Trump and 2019 is continuing with perhaps the best economy in US history.

Job numbers released in May showed an increase of another 263,000 jobs – much more than expected!

Lou Dobbs reported —

In January the White House reported that this economy could arguably be the best all time.

According to data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, President Trump has added more than 5.5 million jobs in President Trump’s term.

The same cannot be said for President Obama as during the same time he lost (3.2) million jobs. Obama was so bad at creating jobs that by the end of his second term he said that jobs were not coming back. This showed in his first two years with millions of lost jobs.

Overall President Trump has gained nearly 9 million more jobs than Obama in their respective first two years plus in office!

The Trump economy is lifting ALL Americans.
But the fake news media wants you to believe that people are hurting in this historic economic period.

AXIOS today posted this headline:
Economic trouble in Trump country ahead of 2020

AXIOS wants you to believe that the flipped counties that went for President Trump are hurting and “struggling economically” since he moved into the White House.

This is an absolute lie.

If you dig into the report they use from the far left Economic Innovation Group you see the “flipped counties” are ALSO experiencing economic growth under Trump. Many of these counties are just not growing as fast as other Republican or Democrat counties.

From their report:

Obviously, the authors of the report are determined to spin their results and make it appear that the “flipped” counties are hurting. This is complete rubbish but not a surprise coming from a liberal group.

This is the kind of crap the liberal fake news media throws at Americans on a daily basis.
