Thank you Trump and all patriotic Americans who voted Trump for the Trump economy.
After 8-years of "You didn't build that" economic policy, Americans elected a Builder.
. "There's never been an economy like this." - D.Trump 3/29/18.Job growth - 2017 - Trump: 2.1-millionJob growth - 2016 - Obama: 2.2-million.LOL.....https://data.bls.gov/timese...
"... growth during President Obama’s final year in office — the end of an “Error of Hope” — landed with a big thud at just 1.6 percent.
That low-water mark puts the Obama presidency in last place among all the post-World War II presidents when it comes to economic growth."
It's OK though, because Obama made up for it in the number of countries he invaded illegally, eclipsing all other Presidents! #1!
If you missed out on the great stock market run-up during Obama's two terms, that's your problem - not ours.
Any increase under Obama has been dwarfed by the rapid run-up in the DOW Industrial average that began as soon as Trump was elected. Obama darling General Electric, part of his "jobs program" is near to being de-listed due to poor business performance attendant on being the centerpiece of Obama's corrupt statist economics program
You are clearly not an investor...
My large investment portfolio (which nearly tripled during Obama's two terms) says otherwise. Your lame argument fails. LOL!
Then you are one of "the rich". Yes you benefited from grossly inflated assets due to QE and QEII. Further monetary policy benefited banks and incentivized them not to lend because they could earn safe returns at the fed. Meanwhile, the rank & file languished under a moribund economy, declining real wages, decreased labor participation, and increases in numbers in poverty and food stamps. Conservative policy including Trump's business tax cuts will provide incentives for all sorts of investment (shareholders will get richer by businesses investing more than otherwise) which provides jobs for engineers, architects, welders, HVAC, roofers, truck drivers... and so on. That is the ONLY way to increase living standards across the board - provide incentives for more REAL (dare I say "living wage") jobs while we all enjoy productivity gains.
"Then you are one of "the rich".
What a stupid comment - you assume that only "the rich" (whoever that may be) benefited from the great stock market gains during Obama's 2 administrations? Go back o your Faux "News" and stop bothering the adults.
"the rich" and increasing income inequality is trumpeted by the left. It is your argument, not mine (though I agree) and it is exacerbated by liberal policies. This knowledge comes from taking Finance 101 and speaking with those engaged in finance and economics, not anyone in the media.
You're the one who used "the rich" meme, not me. Try to keep your arguments straight. LOL!
Real investors know you are full of BS...
If you had any significant investments, you would know it took you 5+ years just to break even again from the Clinton economic collapse of 2009...
Bye, loser. As usual, you right-wing trolls don' have a clue.
Democrats considered hundreds of thousands of McBurgerFlipper jobs created under Obama to be "job growth".... while actual CAREERS, such as software development, engineering, etc, were being shipped overseas.
Obozo created plenty of McDonald's jobs, fool. "1.6% GDP is the new normal" - OBOZO lol - Chief Clown and his clown followers
^ Triggered right-wing sheeple. LOL!
Employment has increased 10 fold at the Department of Making Up Stats.
Seriously---for one, just try checking the stats at the Clinton Foundation if you're really interested in who's making up what. Unfortunately, like so many of the educationally indoctrinated in this country (which, by the way, is a Marxist/Leninist tenet, you know---controlling the minds through indoctrination in the educational institutions), you're making a total fool of yourself in front of those of us still capable of independent thought.
During Obama’s terms part time jobs, (the result of record unemployment created by his administration) were counted as “job growth”. Americans held 2-3 part time jobs as 1 in 7 families ended up on food stamps.
Obama was the greatest president ever at getting jobs for illegal immigrants, for americans, not so much.
Factcheck.org, not a conservative fact checker by any means, in Obama’s job creation. 3rd worst since WW2. Only Eisenhower ( who already had full employment and a smaller sized workforce 60 years ago ) and GWB elder did worse.
Can you spell trillion dollar deficit
Can you spell WEAK LEADERSHIP from Obama!
Forget about the million jobs a month lost toward the end of Bush's term. Would you like fries with that??
Bush was/is a globalist open-borders RINO. A total non-sequitor when talking about Trump.
Unfortunately, Obama continued Bush's economic policies including austerity, and handed Wall St another $700 billion on top of GWB's $700 billion, and did not prosecute a single bankster. Had he done something else, economic growth during his tenure may not have been based on Wall St. economic products, but he was their guy.
And that which is commonly called Obamacare was actually Bushcare; it got rejected cause Bush wanted a larger portion of Medicare coverage in his plan. Oh this includes the Obamaphone, was actually the BushphoneBut, people soon forget
Obamacare is actually Romneycare, hence no public option or cost controls.
Bush was not a Republican or conservative. He was a trojan horse.
Right. The repeal of Glass Steagall and privatization/dereg under the 90's gop congresses brought us the Bush depression. Meanwhile Trumphumpers love them some more trickle down.
That was the Clinton recession and you know it. He created subprime mortgages, then forced the banks to take them...
It was the Bush Depression. No point in your spin.
No point in your post...
Caused by the Meltdown of the Community Reinvestment Act that created Trillion in worthless mortgages . . . .Remember the Klinton excitement over "Red Lining" in 93?
Yeah, of course, that would have absolutely nothing to do with the massive spending and regulation imposed by idiot voters putting in massive Democrat majorities in the House and Senate in Bush's last two years.
Made even worse by Trump's tax "reform" bill.
O'bumbler years . . .
Poorest Recovery since WW II . . . fact !
.GOP = Recession party.
Blocked profile Russian troll blocked...
The 2016 went up after Trump got elected lolTrump effect baby and not McDonald jobs, good paying jobs
Seriously, seek therapy. By the way, your name sorta speaks for itself, so, you can probably keep fooling the rest of your Democrat cohorts---and, of course, yourself. But you can't fool hardly anyone who has the the ability to conceive an independent thought.
Ya, what happened to Obama's "new normal?" Socialist Idiot.
The economy is in much better shape under Trump than Obama.
That is true, a fact leftists are brainwashed to ignore.
Oh my, and the Bushco jobs hemmoraghe was what?
Bush was a globlist open borders RINO. Non-sequitor.
Veto-proof Democrat majorities in the House and Senate flexing their job killing policies during Bush's last two years, courtesy of the idiot American voter.
