Delaney: Donald Trump is Determined to Drive Our Economy into the Ground


FRIENDSHIP HEIGHTS, MD – John Delaney releases the following statement:

“The President inherited an economy that was primed for success but just like the company that he inherited from his father, Donald Trump is determined to drive our economy into the ground. Tax cuts for the wealthy, tariffs that punish farmers, a pointless trade war, a lack of public investment and a withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership have all damaged our fiscal trajectory and placed our economy at risk of a recession. 

“Americans deserve an economy that works for everyone, not just those in the President’s inner circle. 

“That is why we need a President who has the business and government experience to make our economy work for everyone. As a former entrepreneur and CEO of a successful business, I’ve taken a company through a recession, without massive layoffs or governmental assistance. I understand how our economy works and I understand how our government works.”
