Trump's Economic Success Poses Threat for 2020 Dems

President Trump's economic success is reportedly making it difficult for 2020 Democrats to find a negative spin.

According to Fox News:

Multiple 2020 Democratic candidates are scrambling to put a negative spin on the state of the economy, with some resorting to incorrect or overblown suggestions that workers have to hold down two or three jobs to merely “survive” in the U.S.

Sens. Kamala Harris and Bernie Sanders and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke – all three leading Democrats running for the party’s presidential nomination -- have claimed in some form that workers are struggling in the economy that has so far defied odds with a historically low unemployment rate.

— Kamala Harris

“[They say] ‘the economy is great, it is doing great for everybody.’ And then you ask them, well, how is that? Well, they’ll point to the stock market. Well, that’s fine if you own stocks. Then you’ll ask them, what’s your other measure? And they’ll talk about well, the unemployment rate is down. That’s fine,” Harris reportedly said on the campaign trail.

“Yeah, well, I’ve been traveling our country. People are working. They’re working two and three jobs to pay the bills. It’s not working for working people,” she added.

Presidential candidate Kamala Harris has been proven wrong about her claims that many people are working two or more jobs due to the numbers showing this demographic is small and decreasing.
