The media won’t tell you this, but so far the Trump era has been very, very good for the American worker.

Sadly, the media has an agenda and when you think about Trump, the only thing they want you to think is … negative thoughts.

So they can’t tell you that his foreign policy has strengthened our international position. They can’t tell you that his trade deals have given us an edge. They can’t tell you that he’s reinvigorating our economy. They can’t tell you that he’s reenergized our Justice Department. They can’t tell you that he’s brought law and order to the border. They can’t tell you that Trump’s first year has been the best year our nation has seen in almost two decades…

Laura Ingraham at Fox News explains why:

If you just landed here from another planet, you would think that the only news stories that matter are the alleged Trump-Russia collusion, Robert Mueller’s flying subpoenas, and the growing gaggle of A-List gropers. But what you wouldn’t hear much about is the most important story of the year: America is back!

Trending: The Immigration Monster… Or Failed Oligopoly?

Though the media has been loathe to report this fact, 2017 has been a banner year for the U.S. economy. An incredible comeback from President Obama’s anemic non-recovery recovery. The Economist notes this week that blue collar wages are rising, as unemployment tumbles, wage growth among factory workers, drivers, and builders, now exceeds 4%. Theirs is growing faster than the wages of professionals and managers. 

And when you dig deeper, there is even better news. The trades are thriving. Some building contractors are seeing their wages grow by double digits year over year. That is great news!
