White House Economic Adviser Larry Kudlow disputes Democrat 2020 front runner Joe Biden on the success of the tax cuts and jobs act.
During an interview Friday, Kudlow said the former VP needed to get his facts straight, and urged him to re-examine how successful the president’s policies have been on the economy.
This after Biden attempted to claim the president’s tax cuts only benefit the rich, and do little to boost middle class Americans.
Kudlow countered by saying many Americans feel much more confident in their personal finances, and pointed to the success of the most recent jobs report.
“Wow low unemployment, high jobs, high wages, big consumer confidence, major productivity, and no inflation,” said Kudlow. “It’s totally awesome. We’re killing it on the economy.”
Kudlow also said the majority of job and wage growth highlighted in April’s jobs report came from the blue-collar sector.
Meantime, the president’s approval rating climbed to 46% in the wake of the new jobs report.
