What a stupid article. Why don't they list what the Dow numbers were for Obama's first term? The numbers were smaller so the percent gain looks bigger. Would people look at it differently if the article said the Dow gained 11,130 points during Trump's term but only 5,700 points during Obama's first term? Same would be true of Clinton vs. Obama.
The stupid part is measuring economic success with the stock market always as the headline feature. This is true of both Obama and Trump. I don’t know if anyone noticed or cares but there is still a shit ton of disenfranchised people out there from rust belt Uber patriots to Fight for 15 Northwest hipsters.

But hey!...a rising tide!...or something!
Agreed. Trump set so many other meaningful economic records during his presidency, the stock market should be about 10th or 11th on the list of accomplishments. Many of those records will certainly not be broken in my lifetime, and not my children’s lifetime.

Which records that benefit the working class? I’m genuinely curious.

Honestly - it should be a good review of Trump. The stock market performed phenomenally in his 4 years. Especially last years rebound. 56% is nothing to sneeze at.

Also - I hope the unemployment figures of the Trump years don’t get lost in the static of his legacy. Serious gains were made there. We should be thankful for that. And that we had no wars. That’s a huge plus!

I'm sure the Trump Presidential Library will be in S Florida..and absolutely YUGE. In the meantime:


While looking up news on Trumps' POTUS library, I looked up info on Obama's. It hasn't even broken ground yet.
