This week will mark two years since President Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election against Hillary Clinton.
While liberals are still whining about his victory, the Trump administration has been putting in some serious work in order to back up their claim that they would “Make America Great Again.”
Here we have compiled a list of Trump’s accomplishments over the past two years.
After the mainstream media continually reported that Trump was behind in the polls, he miraculously won the 2016 presidential election.
Since winning the election, Trump has made great strides as President.
All you have to do is look at the results.
In terms of America’s current economy, the United States stock market has been booming since Trump took office.
On Wednesday, January 17th, 2018 the Dow broke 26,000 points for the very first time in United States history. Because of this, the DOW broke records for the quickest 500, 1,000, 2,000, 3,000, 4,000, 5,000, 6,000 and 7,000 point increases among major milestones in the DOW’s history. These increases all took place during Trump’s presidency.
The DOW reached all-time highs 103 times. In his entire first term, Obama never saw a single all-time high in the DOW.
In 2017 (Trump’s first year in office) the stock market had the most all-time closing highs, which was 71. The DOW also saw the biggest increase in its’ history (4,956 points).
Before 2017, the DOW never saw a year with an increase of over 3,500 points. 4,900 was unspeakable. Before 2017, the most all-time highs in a single year was in 1995 when the number reached 69.
The Gateway Pundit reports:
Since President Trump was elected President the DOW tied the record for the most consecutive all-time closing highs in a row. In January of 1987 President Reagan saw the DOW increase to new all-time highs a record 12 days in a row. In February of 2017, President Trump matched Reagan’s record.
The DOW today stands at nearly 40% up from where it was in November of 2016, the day of the election!
Americans of all walks of life are seeing their 401k’s explode because of President Trump.
Now let’s talk about GDP and debt since Trump took office.
Forbes‘ Rex Sinquefield wrote a piece in October of 2016, in the weeks leading up to the presidential election, which read:
The Obama recovery of the last seven years remains the worst in postwar American history. Average gross domestic product (GDP) growth since the bottom of the recession in 2009 was barely above 2.1% per year. The average since 1949 is well above 4% per year during the previous 10 expansions.
This result is not just bad, it is catastrophic. The average American should not be wondering if his or her income is a bit above or below 2007 levels. Just by historical averages, the average American should be 20% better off than in 2007. And this slow growth is settling in as a permanent new-abnormal.
I believe the root cause of abysmal growth is the huge tax increases imposed by Obama and the Democrats in Congress since 2008. The most harmful were the increase in the capital gains tax from 15 to 20 percent, the increase in top bracket income from 35 to 39.6 percent, and the new tax of 3.8 percent on investment income in the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The massive increase in regulatory burden through the ACA and Dodd-Frank bills are also crushing, but unfortunately are harder to measure.
In the second quarter of 2018, Trump successfully reached a 4.2% GDP. In the 3rd quarter he managed a 3.5% GDP. Then, in the 4th, a GDP of around 3%.
Obama never came close to these percentages.
Obama didn’t do our country any favors in terms of debt, and Democrats truly have no argument in his favor when presented with the facts. When Obama left office, our country’s debt had doubled to $20 trillion. The Gateway Pundit reports that he “incurred as much debt as all previous Presidents combined.” The article continues to explain that “President Trump has added about $1.7 to the national debt and spending must come down. But because of the increase in GDP, the Debt to GDP ratio under President Trump is declining. President Obama increased the US debt to GDP ratio by 40% from around 60% in 2009 to over 100% in 2016.”
In terms of jobs, wages, and the current employment situation, Trump has been making big moves. It was reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that in the month of October, 250,000 new jobs had been created. During Donald Trump’s first two years since being elected, our country has created more than 4.3 million new jobs. This is huge, especially taking into account the fact that during Obama’s first two years in office, our country lost more than 4.2 million jobs.
There are more people employed in our country today than ever have been before. Unemployment rates are at a 50 year low, coming in a 3.7% in October of 2018.
The Gateway Pundit explains, “The President’s tax plan passed in late December 2017 is greatly benefiting Americans and American companies. Employees will see increases in their income tax refunds next year due to the lower Federal taxes. Millions of Americans received bonuses due to the tax cuts and major companies announced plans to move capital and operations to the US due to these cuts. On top of income tax refund increases, Americans also are benefiting from the highest wage increases in a decade.”
Trump has also been working hard on creating foreign policy that will protect Americans.
He made a promise to defeat ISIS, even though Obama claimed that the terrorist group would be around “for a generation.”
Thanks to Trump, there are less than 1,000 ISIS fighters remaining.
The Gateway Pundit writes:
President Trump met with the Pope, leaders of 50 Muslim countries and Israeli and European leaders in his first trip abroad. He demanded that the Muslim leaders remove radicals from their countries.
The President refused sending Pakistan security assistance in the millions due to the Pakistani’s harboring terrorists. He stopped an Obama last minute $221 million transfer to Palestine and cut aid to Palestinians in half. He showed that the US is unwilling to work with Muslim entities that support radical Islam.
On President Trump’s successful trip to Asia he bundled an estimated $300 billion in deals for the US. He met with Asian leaders and was the first US President and foreign leader to dine in China’s Forbidden City since the founding of modern China.
The President’s meeting in Singapore with the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un shocked the world. At the end of the summit they signed an agreement and North Korea is now dismantling their nuclear test sites and facilities.
289 accomplishments were listed by the Washington Examiner from President Trump’s first 20 months alone.
Now it’s time to build the wall!
