​​Economy

Hillary Clinton says she'll put her husband ‘in charge’ of the economy – which is half the job.
[ABC News, May 15, 2016]

Hillary Clinton’s economic plans would send our economy into a tailspin: 
Whereas Trump will cut taxes and reduce
anti-growth regulations, she plans massive
new tax-and-spend policies, endless regulations and tight government control.

Her corporatist trade and immigration deals would eviscerate the U.S. middle class.  

Clinton’s policies are worse than current policies, which have already been evaluated
as failures.

The Federal Reserve has lowered its estimated growth rate to 1.8% per year through 2019 based on current policies. CBO expects only
2% growth per year for ten years.

Foreign Policy/Defeating ISIS

Before the Obama-Clinton Administration took over: Libya was stable, Syria was under control, Egypt was ruled by a secular president and an ally of the United States, Iraq was experiencing a reduction in violence, the group that would become what we now call ISIS was close to being extinguished, and Iran was being choked off by economic sanctions.

Fast-forward to today: Libya is in ruins, our ambassador and three other brave Americans are dead, ISIS has gained a new base of operations, Syria is in the midst of a disastrous civil war, ISIS controls large portions of territory, a refugee crisis now threatens Europe and the United States, terrorists have gained a foothold in the Sinai desert, Iraq is in chaos, and ISIS is on the loose. ISIS has spread across the Middle East, and into the West.

The Obama-Clinton election-driven timetable for withdrawal from Iraq led directly to the rise of ISIS. [Donald J. Trump Press Release, July 28, 2016]

Secretary Hillary Clinton’s forceful advocacy for the intervention in Libya to build a Democracy is regarded as President Obama’s worst mistake.

Second Amendment
- Hillary Clinton will appoint radical Supreme Court justices that will virtually abolish the Second Amendment.
Hillary Clinton will overturn the Supreme Court ruling that affirmed the Second Amendment as a private right, so that any city or state in this country can ban private gun ownership.

Immigration
 
Hillary will bring in 620,000 new refugees in a four-year term at a lifetime cost of over $400 billion. [U.S. Senate Immigration Subcommittee, June 27, 2016]
Hillary Clinton has pledged amnesty in her first 100 days, and her plan will provide Obamacare, Social Security and Medicare for illegal immigrants – breaking the federal budget. On top of that, she promises uncontrolled low-skilled immigration that continues to reduce jobs and wages for American workers, especially African-American and Hispanic workers.

Hillary Clinton will give citizenship to illegal immigrants who compete directly against vulnerable American workers for the right to high-paying jobs, safe housing and good schools. [Donald J. Trump Press Release, July 28, 2016]

​Economy

Over the last seven years, 14 million more people have left the labor force. The lowest labor force participation rate since the 1970s.

1 in 5 American households do not have a single family member in the labor force.

23.7 million Americans in their prime-earning years [ages 25-54] are out of the labor force – an increase of 1.8 million over the last seven years.

Real GDP grew only 1.1% in the second quarter of this year. Over the last seven years, real GDP grew 2.1% the slowest seven-year period since at least the 1940s.

It’s the weakest so-called recovery since the Great Depression.

Hourly earnings and weakly earnings are lower today than they were in 1973.

The number of Americans on Food Stamps during Obama’s time in office has increased by more than 12 million. 

Trump will create a dynamic booming economy that will create 25 million new jobs over the next decade.   See Plan here

Increasing growth by 1.5 percent would result in 18 million jobs (1.5 million times 1.2 million, multiplied by 10 years) above the projected current law job figures of 7 million, producing a total of 25 million new jobs for the American economy.

Reform policies with a pro-growth tax plan, a new modern regulatory framework, an America-First trade policy, an unleashed American energy plan, and the “penny plan.”

Boost growth to 3.5 percent per year on average, with the potential to reach a 4 percent growth rate. More
