Economic freedom recovers under President Trump.
This year marks the 25th anniversary of Heritage’s annual Index of Economic Freedom. The index tracks the impact of free-market policies (or the lack thereof) on societies and economies. “America’s economic freedom has seen a dramatic boost—from 18th place in the world to 12th place in the span of just one year,” writes Anthony Kim, research manager and editor of the Index of Economic Freedom. “America’s score ticked up by more than a full point from last year, reaching the highest level in eight years.” Browse this year’s findings.
From the liberal leaning news snippet group, Politico, today:
President Donald Trump warned Wednesday that he intends to launch missiles against the Syrian regime of Bashar Assad, warning Russia that the strike will come even though it has threatened to shoot down any American missiles launched at Syria.
“Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and ‘smart!’ ” Trump wrote on Twitter. “You shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!”
