GOP has not done a good job of selling economic achievements, says ex-Trump adviser

President TrumpDonald John TrumpSenate gears up for battle over witnesses in impeachment trial Vulnerable Democrats tout legislative wins, not impeachment Trump appears to set personal record for tweets in a day MORE's former campaign adviser Stephen Moore said Monday that Republicans have not done a good enough job of selling the strength of the U.S. economy to voters.

"Republicans have won the battle, but they aren't winning the public relations battle here," Moore told Hill.TV co-hosts Buck Sexton and Krystal Ball on "Rising."

"The economy is extremely strong," he said. "This is probably the strongest economy in 30 years."

"Everywhere you go from Portland, Ore., to Portland, Maine, all you see in cities [are] cranes, buildings, you know, factories, warehouses, apartment buildings, condos," he added. "It's the biggest construction boom in the United States history right now."

The unemployment rate in September fell to 3.7 percent, a 49-year low, and employers added 134,000 jobs that month, according to figures from the Labor Department released in early October.

"Republicans haven't done a great job of selling and connecting the dots" to tell Americans that GOP policies "have created this incredible boom," he added.

Trump has repeatedly touted economic growth under his administration, saying his policies have spurred economic gains, many of which began during the Obama administration.

Democrats say low- and middle-class workers are suffering from the effects of wage stagnation, increasing health-care costs and a lack of congressional action to boost infrastructure projects.
