You could try praising him for what he has accomplished. What President in recent memory has delivered on their campaign promises? People sure do get close minded when confronted with truth they don't want to hear. Could you imagine that if the Democrats quit trying to assassinate his character every chance they got and started to actually do the job they were elected to do?
Since you are so interested in facts, please enlighten me as to what specifically has been accomplished. As an independent voter, this kind of information is highly relevant. Especially when other conservatives are saying this:https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions ... e73c4cbb65
The article is a complete hack job. Why would you impeach a President that has not committed a crime?
Here ya go. Let the Mighty orange one explain it to you.https://www.whitehouse.gov/trump-admini ... lishments/https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/wash ... se-keeping
Manufacturing job growth and manufacturer confidence is a good thing, and is demonstrably true. The US becoming a net natural gas exporter is also great, but the groundwork for that has been laid for several years. Increased NATO spending is good. Unfortunately a lot of the other claims on the White House link are either outdated, misstated, or at worst total pablum to snow over the uneducated. Since I get paid to watch markets, I'll correct some facts:Almost 4 million jobs created since election.
More Americans are now employed than ever recorded before in our history.
WH job creation claims are way overblown - to date this presidency is generating jobs at a higher rate than only Bush 41. And 'more employed than ever before in our history?' - so it *should* be, because the population in 2018 was 327 million, the highest in our history. A very childish assertion, at best.Economic growth last quarter hit 4.2 percent.
Well, no, that was 2Q 2018. Annualized growth for 2018 was 2.9%, under the promised 3% (or 5-6 as 45 claimed at tax cut time). Estimates for 1Q 2019 range from 0.3 to 1.2%.https://www.cnbc.com/2019/03/01/atlanta ... arter.htmlMedian household income has hit highest level ever recorded.
Total misstatement, since this figure has been reported as the highest to date several times since 1995. And more importantly, this WH has done nothing to arrest the separation of GDP growth from real wage growth, which is persistently hovering around 1%, as it has been for awhile. Meanwhile housing, and healthcare continue to accelerate their increases.https://www.bls.gov/news.release/pdf/realer.pdf
In fact, real wages remain significantly below their early-1970s peak.
The WH makes numerous claims about unemployment being incredible, but that seems inconsistent with 45's numerous statements from 2014-2016 that unemployment is a fudged government statistic - the BLS has not changed their criteria, so why take credit now?
In any case, while official unemployment has looked similar to the improvements since 2016, it is worrying now that the labor participation rate has flatlined for the last 12 months.https://tradingeconomics.com/united-sta ... yment-rateSigned the biggest package of tax cuts and reforms in history. After tax cuts, over $300 billion poured back in to the U.S. in the first quarter alone.
A completely befuddling boast. We are in a completely new era now where the deficit is expanding in the pattern normally seen if there was a recession. By September of this year, we will be seeing deficit expansion to the incredible level of $1 trillion/annum.http://fortune.com/2019/01/05/us-econom ... overnment/http://www.crfb.org/blogs/deficit-has-n ... was-strong
The WH likes to claim we're seeing the 'greatest economy ever', when by traditional measures that means GDP growth. Obviously the greatest period in recent memory for US GDP growth was in the 1950-1985 period.
And it's probably better for not too many people to visit that WH accomplishment site in general - it is amateurish and unprofessional for a government entity to have multiple sentences with words in ALL CAPS. If I wrote like that, our CEO would toss me out the nearest window.
If you need someone to blame / throw a rock in the air / you'll hit someone guilty
