    Minimum wages are rising and this skews the data.

    The bottom 2% of the pay scale isn't skewing anything.

    Actually income growth fell through Obama's last two years while inflation turned up in his last year.

    Actually wages are up nicely under Trump and well above inflation.

    Obama's last two years are below.

    In Obama's final year, GDP came in at $18.7B while the Debt was $20.4B

    Over Trump's first two years he has narrowed that spread quite a bit.

    Last year GDP came in at $20.6B while the debt was $21.3% So we are moving in the riht direction, but of course, more work needs to be done.

      If the Democratic Party wants a field that's representative of its members and its voters, it probably shouldn't have two states as white as Iowa and New Hampshire vote first every year.
