The Numbers Are In – Trump Kept His Promise!

By

Oh, how they speculated over just how abysmally Donald Trump would perform as president of the United States.

The great liberal expectation was that Trump would have no choice but to slink away in shame after vowing to “Make America Great Again.”

But as the numbers continue to roll in, we find that Trump’s actually kept his promise, and in record time!

Playing off liberal pessimism, economists forecast a year of stagnation, if not decline, for America.

So, it’s with tremendous surprise, and a lot of revising the numbers, that we come to find that Trump’s first year in office has brought nearly unprecedented growth.

This was most clearly seen in the stock markets closing at record highs last week.

As the Wall Street Journal pointed out:

Stock prices are driven by expectations of future success. Justin Lahart notes in the Journal that in 2017 companies have not just been expecting future growth—they’ve been making investments to capitalize on it.

To what do we owe this unexpected uptick?

Experts are attributing it to Trump’s business-friendly policies, which are encouraging American companies to again take risks and push the economy forward.

Companies are eager to join the club of risk-takers and innovators once they get signals from Washington that it’s willing to tolerate freer markets.

Trump made a lot of promises during his campaign, and folks voted for him for a variety of reasons.

But no promise was more anticipated than again making America a global business leader, and Trump has delivered on that promise, and then some.
