    • 2018 annual GDP growth was 2.9%
    • In the first quarter of 2019 GDP growth was 3.1%

    President Trump is unleashing economic growth and jobs. Since his election, the Trump administration’s pro-growth policies have generated 6 million new jobs, the unemployment rate has fallen to its lowest point in 50 years, and wages have grown at more than 3% for 10 months in a row.

    Trade & Foreign Policy

    In his first year in office, President Trump took action to protect America’s critical steel and aluminum industries, which were harmed by unfair trade practices and global excess capacity.
    • After an investigation, the Trump Administration found that global dumping of steel and aluminum had critically weakened the United States capacity to produce steel and aluminum in times with national security implications.
    • The President exercised his authority to impose a 25 percent global tariff on steel imports and a 10 percent global tariff on aluminum imports in order to protect our national security.
    • The tariffs on steel and aluminum will reduce imports to levels needed for domestic industries to achieve long-term viability.
    • In turn, the strengthening of our domestic steel and aluminum industries reduces our reliance on foreign producers.
    • As a result, these industries will be able to re-open closed mills, sustain a skilled workforce, and maintain or increase production.

    Upon entering office, the Trump Administration began renegotiations of trade agreements that contribute to the U.S. trade deficit and harmed American workers.
    • One of President Trump’s first actions was to withdraw the United States from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, advancing his agenda to protect American workers.

    The President kept his promise to roll back the Obama Administration's bad deal on Cuba that benefited the Cuban regime at the expense of the Cuban people.
    • The Treasury Department and State Department placed sanction on Cuba to channel economic activity away from the Cuban government, particularly the military, and towards the people of Cuba

    With the completion of the United States-Mexico-Canada trade agreement, the Trump Administration successfully fulfilled President Trump’s promise to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement.
    • The USMCA is a modern trade agreement that opens new markets for U.S. farmers and manufacturers, will encourage increased manufacturing in the U.S., and allow workers and small businesses to flourish.

    The Trump Administration made enforcement of U.S. trade laws a top priority and has continually exercised its ability to block harmful trade practices and exchanges.
    • To defend U.S. national security interests, President Trump blocked a foreign company from acquiring a U.S. business for only the fourth time in history.
    • Since President Trump was sworn into office, the Department of Commerce has initiated 79 antidumping and countervailing duties (AD/CVD) investigations.
    • The U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) self-initiated a Section 301 investigation into whether Chinese policies, acts, and practices related to technology transfer, licensing, and intellectual property are unreasonable or discriminatory.This is the first use of Section 301 since 2001.
    • The Administration blocked the state backed Chinese phone company Huawei from operating in the U.S.

    The President’s Administration conducted 82 antidumping and countervailing duty investigations in 2017.
    • This was a 58 percent increase in investigations over 2016.

    In January 2017, the President announced new safeguard tariffs on imported large residential washing machines and solar cells.

    The Trump Administration successfully litigated WTO disputes targeting unfair trade practices and protected our right to enact fair trade laws.
    • In February 2018, USTR won a WTO compliance challenge against China’s unfair antidumping and countervailing duties on U.S. poultry exports, and China announced the termination of those duties.
    • In November 2017, the United States won a WTO dispute regarding Indonesia’s unfair import licensing regime restricting U.S. agricultural exports.
    • In October 2017, a WTO compliance panel found that U.S. tuna labeling rules designed to inform consumers about safe fishing practices were consistent with WTO standards.
    • In September 2017, the WTO rejected allegations by the European Union that Boeing was receiving prohibited subsidies.
    • In June 2017, a WTO compliance panel rejected almost all claims by the European Union that alleged U.S. subsidies to Boeing were causing serious prejudice to Airbus, instead finding that 28 of 29 challenged programs were consistent with WTO rules.


    The President directed his Administration to consider a range of actions to respond to China’s acts, policies, and practices involving the unfair and harmful acquisition of U.S. technology.

    In August, the Trump Administration launched an investigation under Section 301 of the Trade Act of 1974 into Chinese acts, policies, and practices related to technology transfer, intellectual property, and innovation.
    • This was the first Section 301 investigation since 2013.
    • The U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) confronted China’s discriminatory technology licensing practices through a World Trade Organization (WTO) dispute proceeding.
    • USTR led an extensive investigation based on a thorough analysis of evidence and comments received from academics, think tanks, law firms, trade associations, and American companies and workers.

    The investigation concluded that China forces U.S. companies seeking to license technologies to Chinese entities to do so on non-market based terms.
    • China imposes contractual restrictions on the licensing of intellectual property and foreign technology into their country but does not put the same restrictions on contracts between two Chinese enterprises.

    The investigation concluded that China directs and unfairly facilitates investments and acquisitions to generate large-scale technology transfers from U.S. companies to Chinese entities.
    • A Chinese government-backed fund helped Apex Technologies Co., a Chinese investment consortium, acquire a U.S. computer-printer maker which had previously sued Apex over patent infringement.

    The investigation concluded that China conducts and supports cyber intrusions into U.S. companies to access their sensitive commercial information, such as trade secrets.
    • In 2014, the U.S charged five Chinese military hackers for cyber-espionage committed against U.S. corporations and a labor organization for commercial advantage.
    • An interagency analysis estimated that China's unfair acts, policies, and practices caused tens of billions in dollars in damages to the United States each year.

    In response to China’s rampant trade cheating, the Trump Administration has placed 25 percent tariffs on approximately $250 billion worth of products that are supported by China’s unfair industrial policies

              But that was not his promise was it? Mexico was going to pay directly for the Wall. Check in the mail? Can't decide which Trump bank account to put it in?

              What about the promise that he would release his tax returns?

                      • The program will use outcome-driven planning efforts and capital improvements to rebuild and modernize rural infrastructure.
                      • Strong rural infrastructure enhances regional connectivity, grows small business and increases employment opportunity for those living in rural communities.

                      The Trump Administration allocated $50 billion to empower rural America to address the infrastructure needs of their communities
                      • 80 percent of the Rural Infrastructure Program funds will go directly to the governor of each state as determined by a formula.
                      • 20 percent of the Rural Infrastructure Program funds will be provided to selected states that apply for Rural Performance Grants.

                      President Trump's plan provides states the flexibility they need to address the unique needs of each community.
                      • The federal funding provided by the president’s plan will not be awarded in pre-packaged, asset-specific amounts, as is often the case with federal programs, giving states the freedom to spend the money where it’s needed most.
                      • Instead, funds provided under the president’s proposal will go directly to the governor’s office of the state receiving funds allowing governors to make investments based on the individual infrastructure needs of their communities.

                        The Trump Administration successfully implemented the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) to empower states with the flexibility they need to educate their students.
                        • 35 states and the District of Columbia have had their ESSA plans approved and the Department of Education is reviewing the plans for the remaining states.
                        • The Department of Education is urging states to embrace the opportunity provided by ESSA to end top-down mandates from Washington, D.C.

                        The Trump Administration implemented the year-round distribution of Pell grants, instead of limiting these grants to the spring and fall semesters.
                        • Low-income students will now have access to these funds over summer and winter breaks, so they can earn their degrees faster with fewer loans.

                        The Trump Administration reformed the student loan servicing process to improve customer experience and lower costs.

                        The Trump Administration has reformed The Free Application for Federal Student Aid to make the program more accessible to students.

                        The Trump Administration brought in financial experts to modernize the way FSA offers and services student loans.

                        The Department of Education provided $359.8 million in federal assistance to 20 states and the U.S. Virgin Islands to assist with the cost of educating students displaced by Hurricane Harvey, Irma, Maria, or the 2017 California wildfires.
