Ethics / Fraud?

Idea

Mr. Schaub becomes the senior ethics director at the Campaign Legal Center, which pushes for strong enforcement of campaign finance law. Trump is now tasked with selecting the next federal ethics watchdog, which is a five-year position for an ethics reason.

MAGAnomics

Announcement
Images: 

According to credible news reports, the economic goals Trump administration officials are offering to Make America Great Again are no more than #MAGAnomics of sustained 3% economic growth.

In the past, the healthy American economy grew at roughly 3.5%. That was the average growth rate between the late 1940s and 2007. Since then, it has hardly topped 2%. Could this one be yet another one of those empty promises?
