CHAIRWOMAN MCDANIEL: Well the economy’s humming. People recognize that the policies that the president has put forward are making their lives better. Look at the wages that are going up. Look at the bonuses that are being awarded around this country. 401(k) plans are up. People are having more money to spend on their families. That means something. And they also saw Democrats vote wholeheartedly against this tax cut. They called it ‘Armageddon.’ Nancy Pelosi called it ‘crumbs’ and they're saying, ‘You know what, $1,000 in my life isn't crumbs.’ We're on the right track. President Trump’s leading the way.
RNC Chairwoman: Republicans Can Run On Things That We’ve Done To Make People’s Lives Better
CHAIRWOMAN MCDANIEL: So we knew the trends going in. Historically when you hold the White House you have a very competitive midterm. The RNC's raised double the money of the DNC. We're all over this country building our ground game and we have a message to deliver. We can run on things that we've done to make people's lives better with these tax cuts, with deregulation, with the economy doing better and Democrats have been the party of obstruct and resist and they're not going to have anything to run on and tell the American people that they've done to make that your lives better. So that contrast will help.
RNC Chairwoman: Deeply Concerning To See The Text Message Exchanges Between Strzok And Page
BILL HEMMER: The FBI, they say a technical glitch wiped out text messages for thousands of its employees. What do you think of that?
CHAIRWOMAN MCDANIEL: I think it needs to be investigated and it is going to be investigated. It is deeply concerning to see the e-mail—the text message exchanges between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page and the things they were saying about this president and beyond that, the things they were saying they were going to do to stop this president or hurt this president. So we need to get to the bottom of it. We need to find those 50,000 missing text messages and I think we're doing the right thing investigating.
