How will Donald Trump fix the economy, create jobs, and raise wages?

Good question. Trump has not established any specifics yet, other than on taxes. His tax plan is available on his website, and essentially says he'll lower rates for everyone but raise them on the VERY wealthy.

He promises to bring jobs back to the US by imposing a tax on corporations that send jobs overseas. Wages would rise because demand would rise. He wouldn't have to raise wages, the employers would do that in order to attract workers.

His zero tolerance on illegal aliens would also help, as the cheap labor would dry up and employers would be forced to pay higher wages.

As is usually the case, any policy change has ups and downs. This would probably help America in the long run, though it certainly could hurt specific small businesses that rely on the cheap labor of illegal workers.

As C. E. Scaros notes, the economic ideas that Trump has put out come partly out of the Democratic playbook--high taxes on the richest among us, protectionist measures against China, disincentives for corporations to move money and jobs off-shore.

His stance on immigration--that Mexican wall, deportations, and his response to Pope Francis--are mainly dog whistles about white fear of how American demography is changing, but if they were enacted they would certainly have a near-term negative impact on the economy, in that the surplus labor we rely on to clean our houses, pick our food, watch our

His stance on immigration--that Mexican wall, deportations, and his response to Pope Francis--are mainly dog whistles about white fear of how American demography is changing, but if they were enacted they would certainly have a near-term negative impact on the economy, in that the surplus labor we rely on to clean our houses, pick our food, watch our children while we are at work, etc., would dry up fast, changing the supply-and-demand equation in the labor economy.

That might force wages up in the long term, but who knows? Immigrants are a fundamental part of the American economy now, and subtracting them from the equation seems like a recipe for recession to me, in the short-term, at least.

Trump is using the Republican Party for his run, but his economic policies are completely different from the party's orthodoxy. If he did actually become president, which still seems unlikely, my guess is that he would use something like the same kind of progressive stimulus-focused approaches to boost the economy that a Democrat would, although probably in a much more reckless way.

He can't do this own his own. He has some very good plans to accomplish this such as his tax reform plan which will tax the rich on some things they are not taxed on now and lowering the tax rate for everyone else.

He will need the support of congress to accomplish these things so it is imperative that people vote out the Obama supporting socialists and vote in new conservative representatives and senators.

Vote smart in the coming election.

It all starts with cutting taxes.

Cut the personal income rate. Cut the corporate tax rate. Encourage US companies to repatriate the $trillion sitting in overseas accounts because of the current, exorbitant rate.

Presidents don't really "create" jobs; they work with Congress - ideally - to foster conditions that help to create jobs.

Donald Trump will fix the economy, create jobs and raise wages exactly the same way millions of other folks, myself included, will:

Not at all.

He is still working on the overall plan. He’ll finish it if elected. All will be well. Believe your Politicians, they always speak the truth. He has always done the right thing for his employees. I am the Easter Bunny and I lay eggs for children. Have a nice day.
