I don’t often talk much about the economy, since other areas of politics simply intrigue me more and draw all my attention and focus. Things such as the Russian dossier, the Weinstein scandal, and more recently, Manafort’s indictment (which, as I expected, shows no signs of making things worse for Trump).
But it’s important to take notice of the economy – even the Left knows this. All throughout Obama’s 8 years, they vaunted how Obama was making the greatest economic recovery in history, even though reality was entirely different. And in less than a year before Trump was even ELECTED, the economic climate is far more optimistic for the future than it ever was under Obama.
In his first six months, Trump helped create a million new jobs. I’ve seen reports that the economy is growing at a far faster rate than anticipated in the third-quarter (3.0% as opposed to the projected 2.5%), after having grown 3.1% in the second-quarter. We’ve seen the Dow Jones Industrial Average break record after record. And now, CNBC (who also reported that 3% third-quarter growth) is reporting that “Consumer confidence hits highest level since December 2000”.
“Consumer confidence rose to 125.9 in October, according to the Conference Board. The rating is at the highest level since December 2000. This accounts for Americans’ views of current economic conditions and their expectations for the next six months.”
Now, I don’t know what that rating means in terms of people. I don’t know how it’s calculated or what that number is based off of, but that matters little to the topic of this article. The number is entirely irrelevant. What I’m focusing on is the fact that CNBC is basically FORCED to report this because they simply can’t ignore the improvement Trump has made for the economy.
It’s beyond even any sort of policy. It’s about ATTITUDE. If consumer confidence is at its highest since December 2000, that means people are very HOPEFUL for the future of the economy and, by extension, the country. If anything, this is a measure as to how people feel about Trump. Trust me, the economic climate wouldn’t be this way if the media was right and most people hated Trump.
I remember CNN reporting months before the election that “Mark Cuban believes a Donald Trump victory would be a big loss for everyone with money in the stock market.” That, according to Cuban, “there is a really good chance we could see a huge, huge correction.”
Well, Donald Trump won, and the stock market SKYROCKETED the day he was elected! And it has only been going up ever since. Again, it’s been breaking record after record, as well as breaking Leftist heart after Leftist heart.
And even the Left has to take notice of it. They certainly don’t like it. They hate it, in fact. But they still have to report it, because it’s still happening. People are optimistic and confident about the direction the economy is going in. They are optimistic for the future of the country.
And that’s very different than what the MSM reports. They report that Trump’s approval numbers are horrible. That he’s the most hated man in America. That he’s going to fall and fall hard. And yet, reality is far different. People are optimistic. People like what Trump is doing and they LOVE that he’s President as opposed to Hillary, who pitifully joked that she’d be dressing up as the president for Halloween.
You and I both know that the economy can be very reactionary. We saw, upon knowing the election results, that the Dow Jones jumped up dramatically and it’s only been improving since. We’re seeing TRUE economic recovery. The media, for 8 years, had been lying about how the economy was doing. Yes, the Dow Jones was going up, but there was never any real confidence in consumers. The economy under Obama never grew to the rate it has been this year.
Trump, in less than a year as President, has done far more for the economy than Obama did in 8 years. Obama didn’t do things for the economy, he did things TO it. Trump is helping the economy, while Obama was essentially pulling a “Weekend at Bernie’s”. The economy was pretty much dying and he was dressing it up and pretending it was doing great. There was no truth to anything he said about the well-being of the economy.
And yet, despite the “savant” the media had been calling him, not once could they report that the economy was improving at these kinds of rates. They, and certainly we, know that Obama’s economy never improved at the rate Trump’s is. Of course, they hate that. But they have to report it.
If the Left ever used any sort of logic, they would conclude that what they report in terms of Trump’s popularity and approval is far from the truth. Like I said, the economy is reactionary. The economic climate is as well. If things are looking up for consumers, that means that they are liking what the future holds under Trump - something they never felt under Obama.
Alas, the Left, given their nature, will never see the logic behind my statement. They will never accept that the American people love that Trump is president. They can’t possibly accept reality. And they don’t realize that, with these reports, they’ve been closer to reality than at any other point. But they just can’t see the connection between consumer confidence and Trump’s status as President.
