Donald Crushes Economic Record, Posts Highest Optimism Since George W.
By Mick Farthing|December 18, 2017

Remember what the media was saying before the 2016 election? They claimed that our economy would be destroyed, if Trump won. We would all be doomed, if an experienced businessman took over the White House.

Clearly the media is very stupid. Or just a bunch of liars. President Trump has been doing amazing things. He has negotiated deals nobody could. His influence stopped companies from outsourcing jobs to Mexico. He convinced Apple to build a plant in the U.S. The President has clinched deals for foreign companies to invest billions into the U.S. economy.

That has made a significant impact already. New reports are coming out that our GDP by the end of the year will be the highest it’s been in a long time.

From Reuters:

The New York Federal Reserve on Friday raised its estimate of U.S. gross domestic product growth for the fourth quarter of 2017 closer to 4 percent, based on revisions of prior data that suggested stronger economic activities.

The regional central bank’s “Nowcast” model calculated the economy was expanding at an annualized pace of 3.98 percent in the fourth quarter, quicker than the 3.92 percent rate calculated a week ago.

During the election, Trump promised 4{75726800c12fe2ebed14402fd98444a61f7eda42751f92330bc58faf20bd8821} GDP. The media scoffed. Now look who’s laughing.

Guess which president never had 4{75726800c12fe2ebed14402fd98444a61f7eda42751f92330bc58faf20bd8821} GDP, or even 3{75726800c12fe2ebed14402fd98444a61f7eda42751f92330bc58faf20bd8821}? Yep, Barack Obama. Under Barry, our GDP languished. He was the only president to see our economy suffer so badly. And of course, he doubled our national debt (in just 8 years!).

Trump’s success has only boosted optimism. Which will lead to greater victories.

From CNBC:

American optimism on the economy is reaching new heights and President Donald Trump’s approval ratings look to be benefiting, at least somewhat.

The CNBC All-American Economic Survey found that for the first time in at least 11 years, more than half of respondents to the survey rated the economy as good or excellent, while a near record 41 percent expected the economy to improve in the next year…

The survey found that 42 percent of Americans expect their wages to rise in the next year, and 41 percent of homeowners see their home values going up, the highest level recorded since 2007. In 2011, while the country remained in an economic funk from the financial crisis, just 15 percent of homeowners thought their home prices would rise.

Trump knows what he’s doing. And so does America. The left continues to cast blame. Liberals make threats and sling insults. But the rest of the country isn’t so stupid. We are seeing Trump’s promises come true every day.

Are you tired of winning yet? I didn’t’ think so.
