President Donald Trump asked Americans on Sunday why they would vote for Democrats in 2018 when they continue to benefit from strong borders, a stronger economy, as well as the destruction of ISIS.

Trump wrote on New Year’s Eve, “Why would smart voters want to put Democrats in Congress in 2018 Election when their policies will totally kill the great wealth created during the months since the Election. People are much better off now not to mention ISIS, VA, Judges, Strong Border, 2nd A, Tax Cuts & more?”:

Americans continue to benefit from a robust economy with the 45th president in office. American unemployment claims stay at a record 17-year low, the lowest level since the year 2000. The American economy reached its 147th straight week that unemployment claims dipped below 300,000, which marks the longest unemployment streak since 1970.

American consumer sentiment reached its highest level since 2000, according to the University of Michigan.

Retail sales also boomed 4.9 percent over the previous holiday shopping season.

President Trump and the Senate confirmed a record number of federal appeals court judges in his first year in office, beating Presidents John Kennedy and Richard Nixon’s record of 11 judges in their respective first years in office.

After President Trump signed the historic Tax Cuts and Jobs Act in December, several American corporations announced that they will invest in their employees, give their workers bonuses and wage hikes, and invest in America.

Comcast announced after the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act passed in December that they will distribute $1,000 bonuses to more than one hundred thousand frontline and non-executive employees and invest more than $50 billion in infrastructure over the next several years as a result of Republicans passing tax reform.

Fellow bank Wells Fargo also revealed that they will raise their staff minimum wage to $15 an hour and would also target $400 million in donations to community and non-profit organizations next year thanks to the Republican tax bill.

AT&T announced that they will distribute more $1,000 bonuses to more than 200,000 of their employees and invest more than $1 billion next year in their domestic business.

President Donald Trump tweeted on Thursday, “Retail sales are at record numbers. We’ve got the economy going better than anyone ever dreamt—and you haven’t seen anything yet!”

President Trump also tweeted on Sunday, “If the Dems (Crooked Hillary) got elected, your stocks would be down 50% from values on Election Day. Now they have a great future—and just beginning!”
