It is very clear some folk here more interested in propaganda and trying to make trump look good than actual news or useful data.

first one on the OP's list turned out to be very misleading as to what is really happening, i am assuming the entire list is just cherry picked cities and cherry picked dates to try to make trumpers feel better about this slowmotion disaster of an admin.
I wish I could rep you but I have to spread it around. Beautifully done. You just proved one of the posters wrong on here that spreads misinformation around as is if it were candy.

I’m still waiting for Trump to live up to his promise to coal miners about getting their high paying jobs back.
So you claim Trump enacted no legislation that helped job growth but then claim that job growth is because of Obama so then let me ask you what did Obama do to get the job growth now?

If you were paying attention, ever since Trump came into office, he has been talking about removing regulations, lowering corporate taxes and the business world is reacting by sending stocks and optimism higher than it has ever been. That is what is fueling the economy and job growth since his election.

If you’ll remember, all of the media and the hateful Left was forecasting doom and gloom when Trump won the election. They were predicting this would collapse and that would collapse. To hear them, you’d think the world was coming to an end when Hillary lost and Trump won. Of course since none of their ridiculous doomsday predictions came true, they are now claiming economic growth in the past year is due to Obama. Trump gets no credit, only all the blame. LOL.

Trump takes all the credit and distributes the blame.

The economy and jobs were rising when Obama left office and continues to do so. I give no credit or blame to either president.

The economy was pretty much flat around last years elections. Even economists were saying how the economy was bound for a natural decline after a bull run but because of what Trump is promising to do, i.e. bringing jobs back, backing out of TPP and other bad trade deals, putting America first, lowering corporate tax rates, reducing regulations, etc. the market responded by going higher than ever before.

Obama got lucky when he took office at the time of the 2008 recession. Anyone with even the slightest knowledge of history knows that the economy is naturally cyclical, i.e. it goes up and down. It never stays down forever and never stays up forever. The economy would’ve rebounded after 2008 even if Mickey Mouse was president.

You need to go back and study that in more detail. Good luck!

You forget all the Wall Street bailouts started under President Bush and continued and added to under President Obama. Some might say Mickey Mouse leaving Wall Street Crash ..... might have lead to something else?

Since BOTH Administrations played a role in choosing to give Bailouts ..... both take credit and blame. We just know it did not go into a DEEP Depression. Though it certainly was a Big slump or deeper recession for many. It was a BUBBLE WALL STREET STARTED with Banks over-zealous in loans In a over-inflated housing bubble.

It was NOT A GAME. We could have had a FULL UNRAVELING of the economy. A Mickey Mouse joke is just stupid ---- in the REALITY OF THE DANGER WE GOT THROUGH. IMO

Those states are aren't anything to celebrate. Though some nice people live in them, they are mostly rural and lacking in education and marketable skills. Applauding jobs there is humorous. Also humorous is the extent that fans and worshippers clutch at straws in desperation at trying to make their hero look effective.

With the energy prices increasing looks like Oklahoma and Kansas have much to gain also. Lots and Lots of energy comes from Oklahoma and Kansas.

Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma, North Dakota sure voted for their best interests when they rushed to the ballots last November to vote in President Trump in a huge, huge, huge landslide in those states.
Excellent. Thanks for posting.

I spent the entire summer in those states and things are going very well. Beautiful scenery and nice friendly down to earth people. I was thoroughly impressed.

The energy sector is a big reason. They embrace it instead of demonizing it like the left does.

They are also big on wind power. Actually a lot more so than many liberal states.
