President Donald Trump has made the strength of the economy a key part of his 2020 reelection strategy.




Trump got more ammunition for that argument with the higher-than-expected first quarter GDP numbers on Friday.




GDP came in at 3.2% for the first quarter, much higher than the 2.3% expected by economists.




Voters are also generally favorable towards Trump's handling of the economy.




So the strong numbers help build Trump's best argument for 2020.

Friday's strong GDP report wasn't just good news for the US economy, it's also a good sign for President Donald Trump as he sets his sights on reelection in 2020.
The Commerce Department said first quarter GDP hit 3.2%, well above the 2.3% print that economists expected.
While there are a handful of reasons that the strong GDP number may be temporary, the growth came after early concerns that the first quarter's growth was going to be disastrous.
