President of NYSE Says Donald Trump Responsible for Market Gains
Trigger warning: NSYE President doesn't insult Donald Trump. Woe betide all ye snowflakes who enter and melt here!
Unquestionably, the President's agenda is a big reason.
Business confidence has improved, consumer confidence has improved since the election. The Dow Jones was all the way down near 17,000 on the night of the election, if you remember, the futures really diving, and now it's up, what is it, 15 percent."
This, of course, is not the first vast improvement for which President Trump has been awarded responsibility (see Border Crossings Reach RECORD Lows and Neiman Marcus Quietly Re-lists Ivanka Trump Products). I'm still cagey about saying, "TRUMP IS GOLDEN FOR THE ECONOMY, OMG IT'S LIKE THE SECOND COMING OF PORK RINDS!" where "PORK RINDS" can be replaced with the meaty delicacy of your choice. Vegans need not apply. Put down the soy, nobody cares.
But we are seeing an upward trend with Trump when it comes to more dollar signs. Donald Trump is a mixed bag, and still not my favorite guy this side of the solar system. But we need to call out the good with the bad. Immigration is already down and the wall still isn't built. The economy has a long way to go, as Thomas Farley says here, but it's trending up. These be good signs, people of America. Let's take the good with the bad.
As for any errant leftists who came here to rant and rave, please feel free to gnash your teeth into spontaneous dental hydro-plosion (name that sitcom). We'll listen to market experts.
The left can listen to comedians. Who aren't funny.
