What’s Trending? 📈 Truckers, Trump, and Taxing the Rich

WHAT’S TRENDING THIS WEEK

  • Jobs: Last Friday, the Bureau of Labor Statistics released a strong jobs report despite the spread of Omicron. In January, the economy gained an impressive 467,000 jobs and the unemployment rate remained relatively flat (despite millions sick and out of the workforce).
  • Trump: Republicans struggle to forge a coherent path forward when it comes to discussing January 6th and Trump. Internal debates continue to divide the GOP on the characterization of January 6th as “legitimate political discourse,” and Fox News has called out Trump’s claims of election fraud as lies. This all comes at a time when House Democrats are investigating the former president for his alleged violations of the Presidential Records Act.
