Message About Economy from Sen. David Perdue Posted by Trena Howell on October 10, 2019 President Trump’s economic agenda is working. In the most recent record breaking jobs report , the U.S. economy saw the lowest unemployment rate since 1969 at 3.5%. We are also experiencing the lowest African-American and Hispanic unemployment ever measured and the highest middle-class income in U.S. history. Thanks to President Trump, America is witnessing the biggest economic turnaround in history. These are promises made and promises kept.
