CNN contributor and Wall Street Journal economic reporter Stephen Moore praised President Trump for a prospering American economy during an appearance on CNN Friday.
“When it comes to the economy, you’ve got 4.5 percent growth, you’ve got the lowest unemployment rate virtually in 30-40 years. You’ve got low inflation — I mean, whatever Trump is doing on the economy, it sure is working,” Moore stated.
“My point is, all these people, like Larry Summers, have second guessed everything Donald Trump has done and yet, you look at the results so far, and it’s hard to argue that this guy hasn’t been a really good custodian of our economy,” he continued.
CNN host Kate Bolduan appeared momentarily stunned by Moore’s comments.
According to Bloomberg, which reviewed the Federal Reserve’s Beige Book, the economy is booming and shows no signs of slowing down. In fact, the major constraint on the economy is a lack of workers to fill all of the jobs. (RELATED: Jobless Claims Lowest Since 1969)
