What is it you think is going to happen that has not been happening for the last 6 to 8 years?
Obama's GDP numbers were juiced by tons of Treasury support with QE and 0% rates. Not his fault, but true none the less.
That has been happening for the last 8 year, though there was a dip after the election for a short time.
The only thing that will push wages up any significant amount is when companies cannot find enough employees and they have to start fighting over what is there. That is not happening yet and I doubt it will. If you want a raise, better yourself and make yourself more valuable to your boss. Do not wait for Trump to raise wages.
I think with increasing demand, and decreased supply, due to better immigration policy, that yes, we will see employees fighting over "what there is".

You in favor of a 1 million barrel oil tanker traveling one mile on open dangerous ocean vs 700 barrels traveling 1 mile on DRY LAND? You think THAT's progressive?
You in favor of Brazil shipping oil to the USA???
All of these and MORE... The worst R&Rs growth rate in history and YOU think that's good for the economy?
And yet the economy did indeed surge forward, showing just how little the POTUS effect is.
But look at the great job he did with PR and the hurricane there Only lost 3000 Hope he doesn't do such a good job with NC
Not a trade war.
A renegotiation to make trade fairer for us.
Why should we be over 800 billion in the red?
People in farming and steel understand what he is doing and they understand how it will be good for them in the long run.
