their faith in him. >> i have visited the factory workers and the communities crushed by our horrible and unfair trade deals. these are the forgotten men and women of our country but will not be forgotten for lot. [cheers and applause] steve: what happened to the promise? is it being delivered by the president or by congress and what more needs to be done? let's start by looking at the facts the two most important things is you have a job and how much repaid? things have improved coming to jobs one year ago fourpenny personality is 4.1% 1.5 million jobs have been

created but as a boost of economic confidence who is cutting regulation at much faster economic growth but that is not the whole story. we'll get the number of people who have given up that number is the labor per dissipation rate one year ago it was 61% now 62.3. it still means one out of six are not working of working age of that is depression-era levels. what about earnings? the bad news is not really. wages are still flat. that is not surprising it hasn't been turned around because it is a massive long-term problem. now this is incredibly
9:03 pm
important information space cirrose. but it goes to the heart of the populist revolution. decades after the second world war the american economy grew. in the workers' share in accrued and productivity and wages grew with each other that the economy continued to grow but wages went down even with economic growth and raise the opportunity boosted the in come to the richest americans to own businesses. do you know when things started to go haywire? and started to stagnate? not under obama or financial pressure not even the first president bush, with this incredible chart tells a story wages for working americans have been falling
9:04 pm
since 1973. for decades of stagnation for the working class. the economy has grown since then and productivity has gone up but the working people of america have not shared in the progress at all. that is a massive challenge facing this president and congress of the solution isn't the same old. we need to be open to radical ideas a populist revolution and here to discuss that is my political commentator monica crowley. great to see you. what do see that has happened to a working-class america? period they have largely been decimated over many decades you pointed to the reasons why and what has
9:05 pm
happened. and obviously it has had serious political follow because it has become the of coastal each party be essentially the middle of the country has gone republican especially in those 10 swing states that decided the election last year they felt that they were not being heard by the democratic party. so now that is no longer true so what donald trump saw was the opportunity for a political realignment and he spoke directly to those people who were feeling flat out ignored by both establishments and spoke directly to them and that is where the whole america first platform came about.
9:06 pm
when they said i cannot believe americans elected donald trump but those in those 10 states elected him because he was speaking directly to their economic needs laying out a plan to raise that class back up. steve: i agree with that analysis and it is interesting fought later we have democrats from space ever working incredibly hard to correct that mistake to try to win back some of those so to talk about the republican side of the equation i think the other thing the president trump did was the republican also let down those working people in the phrase that we have heard for years in conservative circles is the
9:07 pm
rising tide lifts all boats. reveals like that has not been true for the working people of america. and it seems like donald trump would be a different type of republican populist republican. where you see those differences with that agenda in that establishment?. >> this is the serious break between donald trump of the republican party establishment. he went with that economic message that what but we have seen so far is with trade republican establishment that donald trump says the american worker has gotten screwed
9:08 pm
because both parties have engaged in the free trade policy approach putting the united states and worker at a disadvantage so then to begin that process isn't withdrew from a the dpp as well as the agreement to protect american jobs and sovereignty. and then to authorize the keystone pipeline to put people back to work. if you couple that with a traditional approach with corporate tax relief or regulatory reform in those economic policies but in the first six months of his presidency he has created well over 1 million jobs in
9:09 pm
the first six months you have seen him rollback and redefine 16 regulations. that goes well beyond the stated goal. is to have two consecutive quarters of 3 percent economic growth. imagine that they do that imagine what growth can do. steve: i agree with everything that you said that key capstone is the tax reform if that goes through and let's hope that happens happens, will that translate into higher income of the working people? will we get that moving in the right direction?. >> a thing so. we'll get the empirical evidence. every time across the board
9:10 pm
tax reform tax cuts kennedy, reagan, bush, every time tax reform with tax cuts put into place you have the results of the booming economy which does lift all boats. more job creation and in that wave stagnation that has been such a serious problem will ultimately move. steve: monica l. thank you for that i hope that happens because i completely agree and i hope to see you soon. coming up next my exclusive interview with congresscongress man who was to make of the house of representatives. next.
