Ten months of MAGA

If you pay attention to the talking heads of the major media networks of course you would have missed all the accomplishments and achievements of our President Donald J. Trump.

Off the top of my head... the SHORT list:

Stock market BULL: US Stock Markets are at record highs and millions of Americans are benefitting in their retirement savings accounts.

Reduction of the Debt: As of July, the US Debt has decreased under President Trump since his inauguration by (-$103) Billion.  (Previous President increased the US debt in his first 6 months more than $974 Billion or nearly $1 Trillion, from 2008 – 2016 federal debt rose 116 %.)

Employment and 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.) Employers added 261 thousand jobs in October alone. All accomplished even with a freeze on hiring of new federal employees.

Unemployment: Also according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics the unemployment rate since President Trump’s inauguration decreased from 4.8% to 4.4% (January through June 2017). In October and the unemployment rate edged down to 4.1 %. Jobless claims hit 28 year low, and Black unemployment now at a 17 year low in May at 7.5% per Bureau of Labor Statistics.

US inflation rate decreased to an eight month low in June to 1.6%. Latest annual inflation rate is 2.2% through September 2017, as reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics on October 13, 2017. In the prior administration highest inflation rate was around 10%.

US Manufacturing Index soared to a 33 year high in President Trump’s first six months which was the best number since 1983 under President Reagan. Trump eased burdensome regulations that 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). Trump directed his Dep’t of Commerce to streamline federal permitting processes for domestic manufacturing. The Trade Gap narrowed by 5.9% to 43.6 billion, exports increased by 1.2%, imports decreased by 2% in June.

The push-back of leaks & lies as entrenched POWER refuses to ‘go silently into that good night’. The ‘negative press covefef’ is all designed to detract and distract from Making America Great Again.
