Trump and the Stock Markets

Post by dunroaming » December 6, 2018, 7:44 pm

Don't know what anyone else thinks or believes but I'm sick of his Twitter posts that cause market ciaos the following day. Many people live on their pensions which rely on stable markets! Now we have to wait each morning to see what his latest rants are and suffer the consequences. As a fellow Scot can honestly say his mother would be ashamed. Many he's winning in the US but no where else

Don't worry he will back off the trade rhetoric, whatever it takes to win, he could care less about anything else.

What really gets under my skin is that his supporters are so dumb they do not understand that THEY PAY for his tariffs, and of course he does not acknowledge. or thank them for carrying the burden of higher prices.

Here are the only facts that matter.

Jan 21, 2017 -- DJIA 19,732 (Inauguration)
Dec 7, 2018 -- DJIA 24,947

If that's a crash, bring on more crashing!

Mid-west farmers are suffering, as they cannot sell their maize and soya to China anymore. Storage full and expensive, some are having to store it in the fields or just let it rot.

It seems that the upward trend in the stock market, for which Trump takes full credit, started at almost exactly the same time that Obama took office.

Just more proof that the stock markets alone are not a true/complete indicator of the health of the economy.

Here is Obama's Economy after 8 years -- even with rises in the stock market during his tenure.

Image

Sources: Census Bureau, Bureau of Labor Statistics, Treasury Department and Congressional Budget Office

And never forget that Bayrack was the only president never to reach 2% annual GDP growth.

Since Trump became president, unemployment among minorities is at the lowest levels ever in US history. More Americans employed than ever in US history. There are more jobs available than there are people looking for work -- first time in US history. Fewer people on food stamps and welfare.

That's the HUGE difference between the two, and it was brought about by the corporate tax cut and huge reduction in regulations. In his campaign and after the election, Trump stated that for every new regulation put in place, the government would have to eliminate 2 regulations. To date, there have been 22 regulations cut for every single new regulation. Source: Congressional Budget Office

And Trump fixed the economy for the working man and working woman on Main Street in less than two years. Makes one wonder what Obama was doing with all that time in 8 years between golf games, Hollywood parties and picking Final Four brackets.

Furthermore, I don't ever recall Trump trying to take credit for anything that happened on Obama's watch -- only things that happened since the 2016 election.

By the time Trump completes the task at hand for America, Obama's legacy will BE TRUMP. All that will be left of Obama is his portrait hanging in the "America's Presidents" exhibit at the National Portrait Gallery.

Sorry, that's not going to fly. When the stock market's going up, it's an example of steady winning with Trump's leadership; but when it's pointed out that the market is doing worse under Trump than it did under Obama, the answer is that it's not a true indicator of the health of the economy? Um,... no. You can't change the rules in the middle of the game. If you actually believed that the stock market is not a true indicator of the health of the economy, you wouldn't have cited it as an example of steady winning.
