Gillibrand’s exasperated expression was responding to Trump’s praise of the United States economy and increasing wages.
“Wages are rising at the fastest pace in decades, and growing for blue collar workers, who I promised to fight for, faster than anyone else. Nearly 5 million Americans have been lifted off food stamps,” Trump said at the time. “The United States economy is growing almost twice as fast today as when I took office, and we are considered far and away the hottest economy anywhere in the world.”
