What US news host said about Ghana’s economy
Ghana’s economy has been ‘hyped’ as one of the fastest-growing on the globe. In fact, compared to the United States of America, it is a faster growing economy, according to international news agency CBS Host, Bianna Golodryga.
Her comments come on the back of remarks made by US President, Donald Trump during his second State of the Union address. Mr. Trump, while touting his feats on the economic front, described the United States as having the ‘hottest economy’ worldwide, maintaining that the current economic growth rate of the country is unprecedented.
“Over the last few years, my administration has moved with urgency and historic speed to confront problems neglected by leaders of both parties over many decades. In just two years since the election, we have launched an unprecedented economic boom, a boom that has rarely been seen before. There’s been nothing like it. We have created a 5.3 million new jobs and importantly, added 600,000 manufacturing jobs, something which almost everyone said was impossible to do but the fact is we are just getting started”, Mr. Trump noted.
Adding, “Wages are rising at the fastest pace in decades and growing, for blue color workers who I promised to fight for are growing faster than anyone else thought possible. Nearly 5 million Americans have been lifted off food stamps”.
“The US economy is growing almost twice as fast today as when I took office and we are considered far in the way, the hottest economy anywhere in the world, not even close.”
