New census data released Tuesday shows more than 1.2 million U.S. households climbed into a middle-class income range of at least $50,000 between 2016 and 2018, which is just another piece of evidence that President Trump is delivering.
In 2016, with the Obama years coming to a close, 58.5 percent of households had more than $50,000 in total income.
