President Donald Trump took to Twitter to brag about the economy on Saturday night.
Along with claiming credit for the low unemployment rates, Trump also bragged that Americans are making more per hour.
“Over the year, average hourly earnings have increased by 84 cents,” Trump claimed.
“The number of employed Americans has now set a 14th record under President Trump. Over the year, average hourly earnings have increased by 84 cents, or 3.2%. Participation Rate hits Trump-Era High.” CNS NEWS. And we will do even better with new trade deals and all else!

The response included a lot of people who didn’t feel like 84 cents an hour was a large raise given record corporate profits following the new Republican tax system.
