In celebrating Labor Day on Monday, President Donald Trump is recognizing the “American workers,” who are “the heart and soul of our Nation’s economic resurgence.”
Noting that he’s been fighting “for an agenda that puts American workers first,” the president pointed out that millions of jobs were added, the unemployment rate reached near record lows, and wages were increased for many Americans.
Trump also showcases his accomplishments under his “Promises Kept” section on his 2020 reelection campaign website.
“Today, we honor those Americans whose contributions have turned our country into an economic powerhouse, and we renew our commitment to create an environment that continues to foster and promote opportunity,” the president wrote in a presidential proclamation.
Vice President Mike Pence is also celebrated the record numbers under the Trump administration on Labor Day.
“Under the leadership of President [Donald Trump], American workers are reaping the rewards of a thriving economy and winning again!” he tweeted.
On this #LaborDay we celebrate the historic number of jobs created and record low unemployment rate in America. Under the leadership of President @realDonaldTrump, American workers are reaping the rewards of a thriving economy and winning again! https://t.co/ke0HcpbWo2

Work is noble. It is good for the soul, brain, & body.
We are truly blessed to live in the freest country in the world, built by the hardworking laborers that went before us.

Democratic lawmakers also offered a Labor Day message:
This Labor Day, I stand with my House colleagues. Mitch McConnell: You do not have the right to deprive the American people of a debate to give millions of workers a raise. Bring the Raise The Wage Act to the floor for a vote. pic.twitter.com/xtZPD6mIOp

This #LaborDay, it’s critical we remember that labor has lifted up working Americans. It’s because of them we have better wages, safer working conditions, and a five-day workweek. When I’m in the White House, workers won’t have to fight alone.

The city of Detroit & state of Michigan are where the labor movement was born, so #13thDistrictStrong knows better than anywhere that when workers do better, we all do better. This #LaborDay, I’m recommitting to work to protect labor rights so that we all do better. #UnionStrong pic.twitter.com/R8U5CRy9AK
