CNN: Wages Are Up Under Trump; Same Time Last Year They Had Gone Down

‘That’s a good sign for any president’


KING: "But if you look at wage growth, at the same time last year, wages had gone down a little bit during the Obama presidency, about 74 cents, weekly earnings have gone down in six months. And six months of Trump, weekly earnings in the United States on average have gone up $5. That’s a good sign for any president. If people start feeling it in their pocketbook, they're not going to worry so much about the number of coal jobs and this and that. If your personal situation is better, you get happy. That should help the President."
