Amidst a record-breaking economic boom, President Trump will introduce a middle-class tax cut and continue deregulation if he wins a second term. 

White House chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow made the announcement Friday, promising a return to prosperity following the coronavirus economic shutdown. 

Kudlow highlighted Trump’s economic successes in an interview with Axios, referencing the economic boom for the middle and working class before the pandemic struck. 

“Family income up $6500 in 3 years, that beat the prior administrations 8 years by 5 fold, real wages went up for the first time, the unemployment rate hitting record lows across the board,” he said.

“His policies, the tax cuts and the deregulation especially, the people who benefited were those that needed it the most. Those are facts,” he mentioned. 

“It was the middle class and the lower rungs of the income ladder who had the biggest gains under President Trump. It was not just for rich people,” he continued. 

Because of the coronavirus lockdowns, the unemployment rate faced a record high of 14.7 percent in April. 

But, last month, unemployment fell to 7.9 percent. 

And while that is still higher than the pre-pandemic 3.8 percent low, Kudlow believes the nation is on the road to recovery. 

“I think we can pick up on that once we get through this difficult period,” he said. 

“We are now working on a middle-class tax cut. We are working on some additional business tax cuts,” he continued. 

The United States GDP boomed a whopping 33 percent in the third quarter of 2020, exceeding expectations and creating a new record, the Commerce Department reported Thursday, according to the New York Post.

Trump celebrated the success in a tweet Friday morning, writing “IF I AM ELECTED, NEXT YEAR WILL BE OUR BEST EVER!”

Obtained Emails on Election Night Heighten Georgia’s Mysterious Ballot-Counting

Just the News has obtained internal emails from election workers in Georgia’s Fulton County has increased confusion and mystery regarding the November presidential elections. As a reminder, Just the News writes, “Uncertainty arose regarding the ballot processing operation at Fulton County’s State Farm Arena on and after Election Night, when ballot-scanning apparently continued even after most election workers had reportedly been sent home.”

Affidavits from Election Night poll workers state they were directed by officials to stop working around 10:30 pm on November 3rd, and return at 8:30 am the next day. Multiple local and national media outlets reported absentee ballot counting stopped around 10:30 pm and cited county spokeswoman Regina Waller.

In truth, counting at the State Farm Arena continued past 10:30 pm. Waller herself told JTN in December that contrary to media reports, many citing her, that she had “stated to all media…that although several workers were released to go home, a small team remained behind to assist with scanning ballots.”

Through an open records request, JTN obtained a few suspect emails, in which Waller does in fact state counting ended at around 10:30 pm. The email, timestamped at 10:22 pm on Nov. 3, addressed to several county officials as well as State Farm Arena spokesman Garin Narain stated, “the workers in the Absentee Ballot Processing area will get started again at 8 am tomorrow.”

When reached for comment via email, Waller only stated the email “was in response to a question received asking when all workers would return” but did not respond to a request to see the original email to which she was responding. So then why did she keep a “small” team behind?

Another email from Fulton County Interagency Affairs Manager Fran Phillips-Calhoun timestamped at 11:15 pm that same night, almost an hour after Waller said counting stopped, Phillips-Calhoun’s email may suggest otherwise. “FYI-[the Secretary of State’s office] just sort of threw the team under the bus stating that ‘we had a great day, but we decided to throw in the towel for the night even though the public is waiting…’ on the results.”

Phillips-Calhoun’s email was sent to Waller and several other county staffers. Phillips-Calhoun did not respond to requests for comment, nor did the message specify which statement from the Secretary of State’s office she was referring to.

A super PAC that heavily supported President Trump during the 2020 presidential campaign is changing its direction to focus on the new administration. 

The Committee to Defend the President officially rebranded itself on Wednesday as Joe Biden takes office. Its mission is now aimed at taking down the incoming democrat

It’s new name? Committee to Defeat the President. 

During the 2020 campaign cycle, the PAC reportedly raised more than $16 million to support Trump and his “America First policy agenda, BizPacReview reports. The group will now focus on “undermining” Biden’s agenda. 

“NEW NAME. SAME MISSION. KEEP AMERICA GREAT & STOP JOE’s Corruption…Socialist Agenda…Liberalism,” the website says. 

The committee told Fox News it plans to match its 2020 fundraising during the 2022 election cycle, and pledges a seven-figure investment “to expose the Biden-Harris administration and other Democrats for their left-wing politics.” 

The group will push new ads, opposition research, social media engagement, and “other innovative tactics.” 

The PAC’s “new mission is to save Americans from the radical, dangerous policies of the Biden-Harris administration,” Ted Harvey, the group’s chairman, said. 

“Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will work around the clock to reverse the unprecedented progress of the Trump presidency,” Harvey added. 

“From day one, we simply cannot let that happen. It is our patriotic duty to work around the clock and stop them – before the damage done to America becomes irreversible,” he said. 

But, this isn’t the first time the PAC has switched gears. 

Founded in 2013, it was originally called the Stop Hillary Pac, according to BizPacReview.
