In a preview of Republican strategy for the 2018 midterm elections, President Donald Trump boasted to the world last week of America’s booming economy. The U.S. gross domestic product grew at a rate of 4.1 percent over the second quarter, the fastest in more than four years.
“If economic growth continues at this pace, the United States economy will double in size more than 10 years faster than it would have under either President Bush or President Obama,” Trump said.
