DNC Chair Tom Perez on February Jobs Report
March 10, 2017
WASHINGTON – DNC Chair Tom Perez issued the following statement:
“Thanks, Obama! Trump has had about as much to do with job growth since January 20th as he does with the Washington Wizards’ winning record: absolutely nothing.
“Trump inherited an economy from Barack Obama with the longest streak of private sector job growth in history. But Trump’s policies are taking us backwards by giving all the benefits to the richest Americans. Trumpcare would slash health care for as many as 20 million Americans while giving tax cuts to billionaires. Trump is pursuing policies that take 8 years of Democratic gains for working families right back to himself and his wealthy friends. Democrats will fight Trump tooth and nail so Americans across the country benefit from our economy – not just billionaires like Trump.”
