For the last time, Trump hasnít made the economy any better

Kayleigh McEnany, who used to be a Trump propagandist on CNN before becoming one on the Pravda-esque Trump TV, thinks the fact that we've added more than 1 million jobs since Trump took office shows that he has ďclearly steered the economy back in the right direction.Ē

What she forgot to mention, though, is that this is slightly worse than things were at the end of President Barack Obama's term. That's right: The economy added an average of 181,000 jobs a month in Obama's last six months in office compared to an average of 179,000 a month in President Trump's first six months. That's a statistically insignificant difference ó and a negative one at that ó which shows that Trump hasn't made a diffference on the economy. And why would he have? He hasn't cut taxes or increased infrastructure spending or done anything else that would meaningfully boost GDP. (Going golfing and tweeting #MAGA a lot don't count.)...


Despite the headline I'm sure it won't be the last time. Sad how some celebrate less just because it's a republican in the WH.

Fair play!

Washington Post is the source that is Pravda. They blatantly colluded with the Hillary Clinton campaign, even ASKING HER PERMISSION to run a story during the campaign. And is blatantly an anti-Trump propaganda wing of the DNC, airing every half-baked rumor and blatant lie in their attempt to destroy Trump at the bidding of their DNC masters.

Maybe we can agree they're not Hannity. Reguardless of how you feel about the WP or anybody else that dares to be critical of rump, what did they get wrong? Trump's "real news" about his first 6 months ignores Obama's why?

Fair play!

Over and over, the Washington Post and New York Times have alleged things about Trump that have proven to be false.

CNN just a few weeks ago was forced in disgrace to fire three employees over blatantly false allegations about Scaramucci.

As I said, e-mails have revealed the WP and other papers have suppressed stories and polls that favored Trump or would have damaged Hillary Clinton in the 2016 campaign.
Recent media studies have shown that the major (liberal) news networks have given over 90% negative coverage to the Trump administration. Unparalleled bias. What else is there to say?

  • from Do Racists have lower IQ's...

    Liberals who bemoan discrimination, intolerance, restraint of Constitutional freedoms, and promotion of hatred toward various abberant minorities, have absolutely no problem with discriminating against, being intolerant of, restricting Constitutional freedoms of, and directing hate-filled scapegoat rhetoric against conservatives.

    EXACTLY what they accuse Republicans/conservatives of doing, is EXACTLY what liberals/Democrats do themselves, to those who oppose their beliefs.

WASHINGTON POST TAKES ANTI-TRUMP BIAS TO A NEW LEVEL

 Quote:
he mainstream press loves to tell readers that it can be trusted because it employs professional journalists backed by layers of editors. Oh, and they're all unbiased.

So how to explain a recent Washington Post headline, which manages both to misrepresent its own poll and expose the ridiculous extent to which its reporters and editors will go to bash President-elect Donald Trump?

The story is about a Washington Post/ABC News poll that asks, among other things, whether Trump should sell his business to avoid any possible conflicts of interest while president.

Trump has taken steps to avoid these conflicts, although not to the satisfaction of some in the media ó many of whom probably wouldn't be satisfied no matter what Trump did.

What did the poll find? It found that most (52%) think the steps Trump has taken are enough to "separate Trump's business interests from his obligations as president." On the other hand, only 42% said that Trump should sell his business.

It would seem that the news here is that most people think Trump has done enough to avoid conflicts of interest involving his company. The Post's poll is in keeping with others that found little public support for the notion that Trump should sell his business to be president.

So what's the Washington Post's headline about its own poll?

"More than 4 in 10 say Trump should sell his businesses ó but even more say he shouldn't, poll finds"

Say what? That incredibly awkward and lengthy headline seems designed to put the most negative spin possible on the results.

"More than 4 in 10"! That sounds bad. How many readers stopped there, before trying to understand what exactly the rest of the headline, which comes after the dash, meant?

What's more, the length of the headline means that only the first part is likely to get picked up by those who want to direct traffic to the story, or in search results, as you can see nearby.

The story itself, at least, is more fair. "The poll finds 52% of those surveyed say Trump's decision to hand over control of his businesses to his adult sons and another executive 'is enough' to separate his business interests from his obligations as president."

But even here, the writer puts a negative spin on the results, saying "a somewhat smaller share, 42%, say Trump should sell his business outright." A 10-point spread is not "somewhat smaller." And this spread is even bigger if you count those who had opinion on the matter, since it means that 58% either say he shouldn't sell his business or don't care one way or another.

What's more, the Post doesn't point out to readers that 66% of Democrats surveyed say Trump should sell his business. In contrast, just 81% of Republicans and 56% of independents said Trump shouldn't.

In other words, Democrats are far out of the mainstream on this question, which is just another way of saying that Democrats deeply loathe and distrust Trump. But you'd never know that reading the Post story, since you have to dig down into the poll itself to discover the partisan breakdown.

The Daily Caller, a conservative news site, wrote the proper headline for this story: "Majority Of Voters Support Trump's Business Decision, Poll Finds."

Simple, direct, and as it turns out, unbiased.

If readers can't count on a major newspaper to fairly represent the results of its own Trump poll, why should they trust them to report anything else about Trump in an unbiased way?

Is there anything in the article you allege to be not true WB? Trump even acknowledged Obama's economic numbers back than. He called it a bubble back than, lol. The truth is the economic figures are good but not as good as Obama's.

Fair play!

Trump acknowledged that Obama had 2% or less growth in all of his 8 years?
Acknowledged that Obama accumulated 10 trillion in new debt in 8 years, more than any president, more than all previous presidents COMBINED?
"WB making shit up" is apparently WB citing the absolute facts:
The economy is up to 3.4% annual growth in just Trump's first 8 months, higher than ANY of Obama's entire 8 years.
The stock market is up 25% since Trump was elected.
Unemployment and disability are down, the rises in disability and food stamps during Obama's 8 years completely reversed because there are now jobs for these people.
Unemployment is the lowest since 2001.
Manufacturing has risen to the highest since 2004.
Illegal border crossings are down 78% since Trump took office.

What exactly is "made up"?

Complete List of President Trumpís Major Accomplishments in His First Six Months


 Quote:


STOCK MARKET

In President Trumpís first six months since the election and since his inauguration the US Stock Markets are at record highs and millions of Americans are benefitting in their retirement savings accounts.

* The DOW daily closing stock market average has risen 18% since the election on November 8th. (On November 9th the DOW closed at 18,332 Ė yesterday on July 19th the DOW closed at 21,641 for another all time stock market closing high).

* Since the election the DOW has set a new all time closing high one out of every four days the market is open!
* Since the Inauguration on January 20th the DOW is up 9%. (It was at 19,827 at January 20th.)
* The DOW took just 66 days to climb from 19,000 to above 21,000, the fastest 2,000 point run ever. The DOW closed above 19,000 for the first time on November 22nd and closed above 21,000 on March 1st.
* The DOW closed above 20,000 on January 25th and the March 1st rally matched the fastest-ever 1,000 point increase in the DOW at 24 days.
* On February 28th President Trump matched President Reaganís 1987 record for most continuous closing high trading days when the DOW reached a new high for its 12th day in a row!
* The S&P 500 and the NASDAQ have both set new all-time highs during this period.
* The US Stock Market gained $4 trillion in wealth since Trump was elected!
* The S&P 500 also broke $20 Trillion for the first time in its history.


NATIONAL DEBT

As of today, the US Debt has decreased under President Trump since his inauguration by (-$103) Billion. (President Obama increased the US debt in his first 6 months more than $974 Billion or nearly $1 Trillion.) The difference between Presidents Trump and Obama is more than $1 Trillion.


JOBS

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics President Trump added a projected 1,027,000 jobs in his first six months (January through June 2017.) President Obama on the other hand lost more than 3,826,000 million jobs in his first six months.


UNEMPLOYMENT

Also according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics the unemployment rate since President Trumpís inauguration decreased from 4.8% to 4.4% (January through June 2017). The unemployment rate in January 2017 was 4.8% and by June it was down to 4.4%. Unemployment under President Obama on the other hand moved in the opposite direction. In his first six months as President the US unemployment rate increased each month from 7.8% in January 2009 to 9.5% by June of 2009.


INFLATION

As noted earlier this week, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics the US inflation rate decreased to an eight month low in June to 1.6%. This is in part due to President Trumpís energy policies that are helping average Americans with cheaper gas and electricity.


HOUSING SALES

Housing sales are red-hot in the US right now. In 2011, houses for sale were on the market an average 84 days. This year, itís just 45 days.

According to the US Census Bureau, there were nearly twice as many US housing sales in the past couple of months as there were under President Obama in 2009 during the same time period. (The annualized housing sales rate for May 2017 is reported at 610,000 where in 2009 this amount was only 376,000.)


DECREASE IN REGULATIONS

One of the first things that President Trump did in office was to reduce the number or burdensome regulations put in place during the Obama era. In January President Trump signed his 2 for 1 executive order mandating that for every new regulation, two regulations needed to be revoked. Even far left Politico notes that significant new federal regulations since Trumpís inauguration have slowed to an almost total halt.

Regulations cost Americans and American companies money to implement and maintain. Reducing or halting regulations allows companies to spend their money on more prudent money making areas.


OTHER ACCOMPLISHMENTS

The US Manufacturing Index soared to a 33 year high in President Trumpís first six months which was the best number since 1983 under President Reagan.

The Federal Reserve has increased interest rates three times since President Trump was elected into office in November. The Fed increased interest rates only once in Obamaís 8 Years prior to the increase after President Trumps winning the election in November.

Illegal immigration is down almost 70% under President Trump.

NATO announced Allied spending is up $10 Billion because of President Trump.

After being nominated by President Trump, Constitutionalist Judge Neil Gorsuch was confirmed and sworn in as Supreme Court Justice in early April.

The President has signed around 150 executive orders, memoranda and proclamations as of July 19th, including:

* Dismantling Obamaís climate change initiatives.
* Travel bans for individuals from a select number of countries embroiled in terrorist atrocities.
* Enforcing regulatory reform.
* Protecting Law enforcement.
* Mandating for every new regulation to eliminate two.
* Defeating ISIS.
* Rebuilding the military.
* Building a border wall.
* Cutting funding for sanctuary cities.
* Approving pipelines.
* Reducing regulations on manufacturers.
* Placing a hiring freeze on federal employees.
* Exiting the US from the TPP.

President Trump and his beautiful family visited leaders around the world. In his first foreign trip as President he went to Saudi Arabia and gave one of the most historic speeches in US history. The President implored the Muslim leaders of 50 countries to get rid of terrorists in their countries and ďdrive them outď. No world leader had ever done this!

As a result, the President sided with the leaders of these countries including Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Jordan against terrorism, ISIS and Iran.

In addition to all this, the President has met with many foreign leaders from across the globe on numerous trips and he invited others to his place in Florida, Mar-a-Lago, including Xi from China, Abe from Japan, etc.

The President also pointed out numerous times that the MSM (Main Stream Media) reports only on a made up Russia conspiracy story and ignores these accomplishments. These actions are making the majority of Americans aware of the tremendous bias and falsehoods emanating from the media in the US and abroad. This too is another major Trump accomplishment.

And letís not forget that the President unloaded on CNN with arguably the greatest tweet by any man ever in early July Ė





IN SUMMARY

President Trump is doing all he can for the American people and as a result the economy is on fire with the stock market reaching new all time highs once every four days! In nearly every economic category the US economy is improving under President Trump. In addition, President Trump has implemented numerous executive actions that he promised he would do when running for office. The US is in much better shape in only six months. Americans have hope again due to the real changes this President instituted from the economy to immigration.

There is still much to do but President Trump is showing that he is doing all he can to Make America Great Again.
