President Trump’s handling of the economy has given him a higher economic approval rating than the average of his five predecessors, a new Gallup poll shows. 

“He has averaged a 48 percent approval rating for handling the economy thus far in office, which exceeds the combined average 45 percent economic approval for his five immediate predecessors across their entire terms." Gallup states.  "In the six times Gallup has measured Trump approval on the issues, the economy has either been his best issue or tied for his best."  

Thanks to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act passed by the Republican Congress and signed by President Donald Trump, 90 percent of wage earners have higher take-home pay. And companies of all sizes are already giving bonuses and raises and expanding the scope of their operations. 

The U.S. added 213,000 jobs in June. African American unemployment went down to 5.9 % - the lowest number since records started in 1972. Hispanic unemployment fell to an all-time low of 4.6 %, and more women joined the workforce than ever before.
