Default Obama's Bump Was Better

There may be a Trump bump, but Clinton's & Obama's were waaaaay better. Trump will NEVER come close to either of them:

Stock Market Performance by President | MacroTrends

Over two terms - the best was Bill Clinton - up 225% over 96 months, followed by - Barack Obama 148% over 96 months, followed by Ronald Reagan 147%, Eisenhower 123%, Franklin Roosevelt 120%. Roosevelt is the only one to have more than 2 terms; over the 145 months of his presidency the market was up 198%.
At this point we are in month 11 of the Trump presidency. Here is where the ranking is at month 11 - Franklin Roosevelt 87%, Obama 30%, Trump 23%, Ford 23%, Truman 21%.
As we can see, past performance is no guarantee of future results. Both good and bad presidents have had good and bad stock markets; there is little correlation with good presidents having good stock markets, nor is stock market performance highly correlated with well-respected presidencies or even re-election. Richard Nixon had a stagnant or down market almost all of his presidency yet got re-elected in an overwhelming landslide. The market was down for all of George W. Bush's first term yet he got re-elected. Gerald Ford is probably the best example of a president who presided over a pretty decent market but didn't get rewarded for it. George H.W. Bush saw the market go up 45% from his first election to the time of his re-election bid, didn't win.

Also, lest we forget Bill Clinton got impeached by the House of Representatives in month 71 of his presidency,when the market was up 228% from month 1.
Just keepin' real for the tinfoil hatters in their alternative-fact universe.

Last I heard she identified security guards near the event and was following up, credit card was shut off.
Apparently they couldn't get a good look to identify so chances of an arrest happening slim to none. Until they try to use her credit card...

Try another post.
Foreign relations? Are you serious? Have you not noticed how he's alienating ties with all our allies? The UK has held hearings about banning him from visiting for God's sake. Unheard of.

As for the stock market, he's riding the wave of Obama's administration and is cutting corporate taxes by 14%. The stock market would respond the same if a monkey were in office and pledged that cut.

LOL! Good one!

So far, everything is turning to gold. Booming economy, with markets breaking records nearly on a weekly basis. Consumer confidence and spending is up. All looking good. Prosperity we have not seen since Barack Obama was elected. That man killed American prosperity. America is back now!
