Democrats “panicking” as Obama economist predicts a roaring economic recovery under President Trump!
“‘We are about to see the best economic data we’ve seen in the history of this country,’ Furman told a group of bipartisan leaders from both parties. ‘Instead of forecasting a prolonged depression-level economic catastrophe, Furman laid out a detailed case for why the months preceding the November election could offer Trump the chance to brag — truthfully — about the most explosive monthly employment numbers and GDP growth ever,’ Politico reported. ‘Furman’s counterintuitive pitch has caused some Democrats, especially Obama alumni, around Washington to panic.'” (Daily Wire)
Imagine dismissing news of an economic recovery as bad news!
But according to the Daily Wire, Democrats are “reportedly panicking” as Jason Furman, a Harvard prof and President Obama’s chair of the Council of Economic Advisors, predicted the U.S. will have the “best economic data we’ve seen in the history of this country” as we rebound from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Thanks to President Trump, Americans have enjoyed unprecedented economic growth and prosperity … until the coronavirus halted the incredible growth rates.
But as America gets back on track, President Obama’s own economic advisor predicts we’ll see the Trump economy come roaring back! That’s great news for our country — but bad news for Democrats who were counting on a weakened economy to boost Biden’s lackluster campaign.
President Trump weighed in on Twitter this morning: “Stock Market up BIG, DOW crosses 25,000. S&P 500 over 3000. States should open up ASAP. Transition to Greatness has started, ahead of schedule. There will be ups and downs, but next year will be one of the best ever!”

President Trump warns that voting by mail could lead to a “rigged election.”
“President Trump is taking aim again at the push by states to expand voting by mail due to health concerns over in-person voting during the coronavirus pandemic, arguing that it will spur voter fraud and result in a ‘rigged election.'” (Fox News)
President Trump has sounded the alarm on voter fraud concerns with widespread voting by mail.
As he tweeted this morning, “There is NO WAY (ZERO!) that Mail-In Ballots will be anything less than substantially fraudulent. Mail boxes will be robbed, ballots will be forged & even illegally printed out & fraudulently signed.”
California wants to mail a ballot to all registered voters — based on its state voting roll, which are notoriously inaccurate across America — which some policy experts say is “an open invitation to fraud and abuse.” (Heritage Foundation)
States should have a plan for how to safely vote during the COVID-19 pandemic … but giving in to the left’s long-time goals to up-end the electoral process isn’t the right way.
Could the Republican National Convention move to Georgia?
“Republican Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp wants the upcoming Republican National Convention (RNC) to be relocated to his state as President Donald Trump clashes with Democratic leaders in North Carolina over the event’s future. ‘With world-class facilities, restaurants, hotels, and workforce, Georgia would be honored to safely host the Republican National Convention. We hope you will consider the Peach State,’ Kemp tweeted Tuesday.” (Daily Caller)
Over the weekend President Trump delivered an ultimatum to North Carolina’s Democratic governor: guarantee the Republican National Convention can continue as planned in Charlotte, North Carolina … or the GOP will move its August convention elsewhere.
Now the Governor of Georgia is making a public overture to have the convention move to his state.
Georgia was one of the first states to begin to re-open in late April — and the governor faced criticism for that choice. (National Review)
