He joins us now good morning, Sean Good Morning, Ainsley thanks for having me Ainsley, you are welcome, combat veteran you for our country. You saw last night Conor Lamb running for the same seat in District seventeen in Pennsylvania.
What was your response to what he said last night? Well, I got to tell you nothing says: rising star, independent, moderate voice for Western Pennsylvania, quite like reading prescripted, soundbites and opening up for Stacey Abrams, whose primary claim to fame is losing an election in grand fashion and refusing to accept the result and conors Lamb, saying the president not helping the working class eight years under Barack Obama and Joe Biden, the state lost one hundred and fifty one thousand jobs, the lion share of which, in the manufacturing sector, under just three years of President Trump, we brought those jobs back plus. Fourteen thousand three hundred the proof is in the numbers: Conor Lamb is not right for western Perry and he is in lock step with the most radical members of his party Ainsley interesting, because Conor Lamb last night talked about the economy and disagrees with what you just said. Listen to this, when our economy was on the brink, Joe led the recovery effort that created millions of
jobs, including here in western Pennsylvania, under his leadership America bounced back with the longest economic expansion in history, Ainsley whats. Your response to that. I will tell you talk to business leaders all across western Pennsylvania Democrats and Republicans. They say under three years of president Trump. The economic growth that they have experienced has been unprecedented and theyre, just starting to emerge from just being saddled with eight years of regulatory nonsense from the Barack Obama and Joe Biden presidency. They are just starting to be prosperous. Again. All of that is a tribute to President Trump bottom line. Is this president trump? He is charting a path forward for this country and businesses all across western Pennsylvania. They know that they know and they recognize it.
