10 Reasons Trump Economy Is Best in 50 Years

10 Reasons Trump Economy Is Best in 50 Years

BY:  George Mentz

 

After many years of unemployment and war, the U.S. economy has made a dramatic comeback. The credit can only be given to President Donald Trump's promised rollback of the tax and regulatory schemes implemented from 1993 until he was elected.

 

Here are 10 facts since Trump was elected that prove this is the best overall economy in more than 50 years:

 

  1. Employment: PBS News Hour confirmed that this is the best labor market since 1969 with low unemployment, more jobs and rising wages.
  2. GDP: Trump is the first president to have GDP consistently higher than 3%, President Barack Obama was only the president to fail to achieve one year of 3% GDP growth.
  3. Wages: The Washington Post even surrenders to the fact that Trump is the first president to improve wages in a generation where income is at an all-time high.   
  4. Stock Market: CNN says the stock market has roared more than 40% since Trump’s election.
  5. Gas and Fuel Prices: Gas prices are low in most U.S. states that don't over-tax fuel with local and state taxes. Many states have $2.15 per gallon gasoline right now. Gas prices may fall this summer according to the latest news.
  6. Ethnic Employment Success: The employment success for all ethnicities is at record high. Obama had difficulty creating jobs and many people gave up looking for work.
  7. Manufacturing Jobs: Manufacturing jobs are back in the U.S. for the first time in a generation. Trump created 284,000 manufacturing jobs in 2018. Forbes implied that millions of manufacturing jobs were lost during Obama’s first 2 years in office. Some 1 in 6 were lost between January 2008 and March 2010 and Obama never got those jobs back.
  8. Taxes and Regulatory: Corporate taxes were cut from 35% to 21%. America moved from worst tax system up to one of the most competitive in the world under Trump’s first 2 years in office. Lower tax rates allow U.S. companies to spend more money, buy more assets, pay more employee benefits, buy stock back to put money on Main Street and into state coffers, and even help pay better dividends to seniors who live paycheck to paycheck.
  9. Nasdaq: The Nasdaq stock market value finally exceeded the 1999 prices under Trump. This implies that companies were stagnant for 18 years until Trump took office.
  10. Level the Playing Field: With a mixed bag of tax-code improvements, removal of red tape, new trade agreements, and competitive tariffs, the U.S. economy is more insulated from failure. Even the Federal Reserve is willing to lower rates if other countries harm the U.S. trading environment.

With lower taxes, more jobs, no war, and a strong stock market, the U.S. may be poised to maintain the economic boom started by Trump. After a generation of war and unemployment problems, it is possible that the U.S. can have lasting prosperity if it continues to utilize common-sense economic strategies; however, the youth of our country must pay the $10 trillion of new debt created by Obama.

 

Because of technology and other efficient systems, inflation is remaining low. What is strange is that the Federal Reserve in this new era seems to unilaterally create artificial inflation rather than slow it down. Thus, we are in a new paradigm of the Trump Era and we are now competing with the other 180+ countries around the world to remain the most business friendly super power.

 

Can the economy blow up again? The answer is yes if there is a combination of forces of debt, lower productivity, higher taxes, higher interest rates, lower foreign investment, and less spending. The biggest problem is paying unfunded liabilities and the debt created by Obama. Thus, the only way out of this mess is to continue to create jobs, get people off of public assistance by allowing great jobs to be created, create more government revenue through lower taxes on a larger group of new producers, and lower the costs of running government.

To be living in America with over five million of it's citizens sick and many in varying stages of death and over 160,000 of our countrymen and women dead already and with millions of Americans unemployed and on the verge of losing their American Dream, to say Trump's economy is the best in 50 years is at it's best inaccurate and at it's worst--a flat out lie.

 

The "Trump Economy Is Best in 50 Years?"

 

Tell that to a family living on unemployment benefits, barely making ends meet, struggling to keep the lights on, and those living in quarantine while waiting for their COVID-19  results or hoping to get better, or those who for the first time are having to use a food bank just to feed themselves and their families, or those who where already living on the margin and are now homeless and the list goes on.  

 

The "Best Economy in 50 Years?"   Look around.  Think again!   

 

It is not!

I give the American people more credit then to believe the falsehoods spread by the liberal dems.  They remember what great shape this country was in BEFORE the virus and they also know it was ALL THANKS TO PRESIDENT TRUMP.

 

They KNOW why we are ALL going through more hardship right now, and they also know that IT'S TEMPORARY.  Unless biden is elected, then the problems for ALL of us have just started and they will get worse!

 

YES, before the virus, it was the best economy this country had seen in many peoples lifetime.  RE-ELECT TRUMP and it will continue to be.  That is TRUTH...

Toad Worshipers claim tRump made the economy boom, but stop without giving ANY reason for their (erroneous) conclusion.

 

The TRUTH is, the economy was ALREADY booming when Putin slithered the Toad into the White House, and since then Toad did NOTHING to improve the economy.

 

Toad handed $1.2 TRILLION in tax revenue to the Corporate Oligarchs CLAIMING they would use the money to add jobs and bring jobs back from overseas.

What REALLY happened is every dime went into the pockets of the Corporate Oligarchs via stock buy-backs that immediately increased the value of their holdings and the future value of their bonus stock options. Had the money stayed whee it was, the deficit would be reduced, easing the burden on future generations and those tax dollars would've paid WORKERS who actually perform the tasks needed to keep our Nation running.

 

Toad axed trade deals CLAIMING he'd get better ones.

What REALLY happened is the only change to NAFTA was the name, now USMCA, and Mexico gets to send us MORE car parts, hardly a boon to our Autoworkers, but more profit for the Corporate Oligarchs to divert into their own pockets.

 

Toad started baseless Trade Wars CLAIMING we'd earn billions in revenue because CHINA WOULD PAY THE TARIFFS.

What REALLY happened is the tariffs permanently LOST billions in sales of agriproducts bankrupting thousands of small farms which were bought by agricorporations to the benefit of their Corporate Oligarchs and raising the prices paid by AMERICAN consumers.

 

Toad axed environmental protections CLAIMING it would create jobs.

What REALLY happened is our air and water now contain more Mercury, lead, and other carcinogens, global warming is speeding up, and more Americans will sicken and die because the Corporate Oligarchs running the food processors will have even fewer restrictions which lead to numerous "hotspots" of Covid19 infections among the workers who process our food supply. The disease (which really should be called tRumpvid20 in recognition of who caused it to spread in the US) has shut down America's economy and Toad's efforts to re-start it have only re-started the spread of his disease.

A good reminder that we all know that the economy was booming BEFORE this virus, and it was all thanks to the actions taken by President Trump. And it will be booming once again ONLY under President Trump and that is why he needs to be re-elected! We've already lived through the disastrous eight years of the Obama - Biden rules. So we know we don't want more of that!

 

Once again the liberal dems are in  "fact denial".

Other than riding the coat tails of President Obama's highly successful economic recovery and taking credit for the economy created by President Obama's actions, Trump did nothing!!!

 

Trump did, however, drive our economy into the ground with his gross incompetence in handling the deadly Trumpvirus!!!

Judge Judy agrees with Panjandrum that you have no idea what Trump did on the economy as you have yet to come forwarded with any facts. I agree with Judge Judy to. I am still waiting for answers on a number of subjects. I have given you facts.

He also created our present poor economy by not showing some leadership and shutting down the corona virus, like so many countries did

And before Trump!

Nooo ..... by the actions taken by President Obama who handed over a booming economy to Trump!

 

 

And it will be booming once again ONLY under President Trump

Trump destroyed the economy .... now the worst since the Great Depression!

 

and that is why he needs to be re-elected!

Our economy destroyed by Trump is ANOTHER reason he needs to be removed from office!

 

 

We've already lived through the disastrous eight years of the Obama - Biden rules.

Actually, Obama-Biden rescued our economy from the colossal economic collapse of the Bush administration ..... a massive success story!!!

 

 

So we know we don't want more of that!

No .... we need ANOTHER  successful economy rescue from Biden!

 

 

Once again the liberal dems are in  "fact denial".

Once again, Democrats need to rescue the economy from the colossal disaster created by Trump and his Republican minions!

The facts are Trump has this country close to Depression like 1929. This is the worst economy we have had since then. THAT IS THE FACT.

The number one job of Trump Lovers is lavishing praise on their Supreme Leader, giving him credit for things he never did. There are many reasons why this isn't the best economy in 50 years. Here are a couple of starters, with more to come.

 

The deficit has risen dramatically under Trump, starting with the unpaid for Trump Tax Bill, which added One Trillion dollars to the deficit. Since then, the deficit/debt has been soaring under Trump. Check out the following:

Monthly U.S. Budget Deficit Soared to Record $864 Billion in just the month of June. The shortfall was nearly as large as the entire 2019 deficit
