The rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated. Hello, some people think that Obama was a better president than Trump is turning out to be...will be.. Though it is early in his presidency we can compare them none the less at this point. Economy: 2008 collapse: Yeah, Obama got a bad economy. But he had 8 years and over 8 trillion dollars to fix it! He failed. Not only did he fail, he delayed what should have been a vibrant economy had he simply did what JFK or even Reagan did. But fiscal conservatives are becoming a dying breed. Trump has done some things right and some things wrong. His stimulus spending is not going to balance the budget or pay down the debt. Why he funded PP is beyond me, he should have vetoed the bill. But he really wanted a military increase and that was the trade he made. Said he would never sign another bill like that and warned Congress he would veto the next one. Good for him, we will see. DeRegulation: Trump has reversed and cut many Obama era regulations that kept the economy stagnant. Under Obama, corporations could not compete here in America, they were too busy paying high taxes to support the mammoth welfare state Obama approved. Welfare: Under Trump food stamp recipients have dropped dramatically with some states requiring work to collect and due to the better economy. I predict it will continue to drop and may see some type of Clinton type welfare reform passed. Jobs: Jobs in minority communities are up and Job increases rose sharply nation wide under Trump. in fairness, in the last years of Obama, jobs in certain sectors rose too, but minority jobs stayed stagnant. Wages, which on avg. actually dropped under Obama are rising under Trump's tax plan. GDP: Obama is the only President in history to not have a single year of 3% or higher annual GDP. His average was 1.48%. The annual GDP for his last year was 1.5%. The GDP for 2017, Trump's first year was 2.3%. Many are predicting 3% or more for 2018. Corporate return: Obama famously said Corporations that moved out of America would never return. He was wrong. Trumps corporate tax cuts to levels closer to the World norm have seen companies return and pledge to build more factories in America. Foreign companies are also investing and bringing more jobs to America. So even as some brick and mortar companies are closing doors due the inability to compete with the Amazons and on line shopping boom, the job growth in other areas is looking promising. Foreign Policy: Obama was weak in foreign policy. He constantly went on apology tours. He pulled US troops out of Iraq prematurely thus allowing ISIS to fill a power void. That is what happens when a President gets a Nobel Peace Prize for doing absolutely nothing. He starts to believe he can actually change the World with words alone. He released 1.5 billion dollars to Iran, the biggest sponsor of terror in the ME and the World. He signed a terrible Nuclear deal that we cannot verify. There are no spontaneous inspections allowed. He was weak in the face of NorKor who tested ever bigger A bombs and refined their ICBM missile tech to carry those bombs. His immigration policy violated our immigration laws and he unilaterally enacted DACA. something beyond his power as president. Trump dealt a severe blow to ISIS. He warned Syria about gas and bombed them when they used gas against their people. Remember Obama's red line comment? Trump has made huge improvements in the NorKor talks with Kim Jong-Un stating he has ceased his missile and nuclear testing. Trump is due to talk to him soon in person. To state this was not due to trump is just ridiculous. Why now, why did it not happen under Obama's presidency, under Clinton, under Bush? Trump has gotten no credit because the MSM and left in America refuse to acknowledge anything positive he does. Japan's Prime Minister has also credited Trump with NorKor's turn around. Trump has even gotten China to assist with NorKor. Although China is the last one to want to see one united Korea. Pretty impressive. Again, still early. But so far, Trump is having some pretty great success stories even if the MSM are not reporting them or downplaying them. Obstructionist tactics: No president has had to put up with such negative opposition as Trump. The MSM has reported 90% negative. President Carter said Trump has been wrongfully attacked and he never saw anything like it. Think there is no bias? If even a small amount of the things said about Trump were said about Obama the press would be shouting every ism in the book. Not a single democrat voted for the Tax cuts. Many democrat representatives have signed a petition to impeach Trump. Really? For what? Do they know how hard it is to impeach a President to the point of removal from office? Probably not. My own theory is they want him gone because as the corruption of the Obama admin and DNC comes slowly out they are really afraid they may go to prison. And to be honest, there are plenty politicians and administration officials, both democrat and republican, that belong in jail. Sure, the Republicans also push back when a Democrat is in power. But it has never been anything like it is now under Trump. The things being said are loony tunes. Thanks for hearing me. Got an opinion, great! Post away. Yet in October, after the third-quarter figures showed annualized growth of 3%, he wrote me to ask truculently: "Any retraction coming from your article in the spring about Trump 'dreaming if he thinks he can get 3% growth'?" Column If Trump thinks he can get more than 3% economic growth, he's dreaming May 19, 2017 | 2:20 PM Over the course of a subsequent email exchange, he added: "Every left wing economist was wrong on growth for 2017." And, "Yes, it is hazardous to read too much into 6 months of data, but wow is this economy sizzling." And, "I'm just surprised that as a 'business' reporter for the LA times you missed the biggest financial story of the last eight years: the Trump moon bounce in the financial markets and the real economy - which is sizzling hot right now after a decade of malaise. But don't feel bad, most in the media and all the liberal economists who you cited missed the call as well." I asked Moore after Friday's fourth-quarter figure was published if he had any further..
