Trump's pre-Coronavirus economic record in his first 3 years (2017-2019) compares unfavorably to the last 3 years of Obama (2014-2016) on job creation, budget deficits, the uninsured, and real (after-inflation) wage growth. The unemployment rate had been falling since 2010. 3/ https://t.co/V6pPpPf6mV

Trump has lied repeatedly that his tariffs would be paid by China; they are in fact paid by American families, to the tune of about $1,300 on average in 2020 according to the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO). 4/ https://t.co/EINCth8cai

Trump's record on healthcare doesn't hold a candle to Obama's. If Trump succeeds in repealing the ACA, the number of uninsured would jump by 20 million; as of mid-2019 there were about 2 million more uninsured under Trump, with millions more losing coverage with Coronavirus. 5/ https://t.co/sdcm7n04vr

Trump's corporate tax cuts mainly benefit the rich thereby making inequality worse, as the top 1% own over 50% of the stock, and the bottom 90% own about 12%. Measured through 2019, the bottom 50% got only 3% of the wealth gains during the Trump Administration. 6/ https://t.co/AlQoTSEc1K
