Watters on Booming Economy: It Will Be Difficult for Dems to 'Run Against Winning' in Midterms
On "The Five" on Thursday, Jesse Watters said Democrats could face an uphill battle in the 2018 midterms because of the booming economy.
"It's not trickle-down economics, it's more of a flood. And it's not coming from the top down, it's broad-based and growing out," Watters said.
He pointed out that dozens of U.S. companies are offering bonuses, pay raises and other benefits to employees following the passage of the Republican tax overhaul.
Will soon be heading to Davos, Switzerland, to tell the world how great America is and is doing. Our economy is now booming and with all I am doing, will only get better...Our country is finally WINNING again!

"It's going to be very difficult for the Democrats to run against winning. I don't see how they do it. How can you deny your 401k exploding? How can you deny tax cuts?" Watters said.
"They're deniers," Greg Gutfeld remarked.
"They're like climate deniers, but they're winning deniers," Watters said.
He said the only move Democrats will have in the upcoming midterms is to run a "super negative," anti-Trump campaign, adding it's not a sure thing that Democrats will retake the House of Representatives.
