President Donald Trump warned voters of a Democratic party victory in the 2018 midterm elections saying it would reverse the economic gains seen under his presidency.

The president also blasted his former opponent Hillary Clinton in an earlier tweet saying the stock market would have lost 50 percent of its value if she had been elected in 2016.

The economy has boomed under Trump’s presidency so far with 87 new highs for the Dow Jones since the president was elected. There’s also been a three year high GDP growth rate despite two massive hurricanes and an unemployment hovering around 4 percent. Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta recently told a roundtable attended by The Daily Caller that he expects nearly two million new jobs to have been created under Trump.
