Republican Party chairwoman Ronna McDaniel has a number for those in the media who said President Donald Trump was “dreaming” when he said he could achieve three percent gross domestic product growth.

And that number is 3.2 — the percentage of GDP growth by the U.S. in the first quarter of 2019.

On May 19th, 2017, the Los Angeles Times published an editorial with the headline, “If Trump thinks he can get more than 3% economic growth, he’s dreaming”:

During the presidential campaign, Trump promised growth of 3.5% a year, and sometimes even 4%. There’s no disagreement that a sustained growth rate of this magnitude would be a significant achievement. Over the past decade, the economy has grown at an average of about 2% a year.

Now, if the economic trajectory remains on its current course, will the L.A. Times write editorials next year (during the election) revisiting that line, “There’s no disagreement that a sustained growth rate of this magnitude would be a significant achievement”?

But it wasn’t just the media.

President Obama said Trump would need a magic wand for the economy to get to where it is.

The magic wand is called deregulation and tax cuts.

It’s simple and very effective.

Democrats should try it sometime.
