Trumpenomics would constrain the Covid-19 recovery

A second term for Donald Trump would likely constrain the economic recovery relative to a Joe Biden presidency, but the degree of constraint would depend on who controls Congress.

Our current “status quo” policy baseline assumes Trump wins the White House, while Republicans control the Senate and Democrats control the House. In our baseline, which features a short-term fiscal relief package, we expect real GDP to grow 3.7% in 2021.
