“Our economy continues to defy expectations as President Trump’s agenda delivers positive results for the American people,” House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) said in a statement.
“This Administration has been laser-focused on the economy and I am proud that Republicans in Congress worked with President Trump to cut taxes and reduce bureaucratic red tape. Thanks to our booming economy, millions of Americans who had given up hope are now becoming part of the American Dream again.”
.@realDonaldTrump continues to defy expectations & deliver results for American workers! Democrats need to explain to everyone with new jobs & higher wages why they want to take that away from them with their job-killing socialist programs & high taxes. https://t.co/ikK7g2c7sz

June’s jobs report brings more good news for American workers:

Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna McDaniel labeled June’s job report “MASSIVE.”
MASSIVE June jobs report:
* 224,000 jobs – beating expectations
* 17,000 new manufacturing jobs
* 3.1% wage growth over the past year
The economy is booming under @realDonaldTrump and we can’t let Democrats stop this momentum.

“Liberals in Washington should explain to all those Americans who have found jobs and are enjoying higher wages why they are determined to take that away by reversing our success and sabotaging our economy through higher taxes, harmful regulation, and far-left socialist programs,” Scalise said in a statement.
