This absolutely incredible, especially when you consider all of the experts who claimed that Trump would crash the stock market. Of course, “ex” means former, and “spert” (spurt) is a little drip, so that explains that. But in just 2 1/2 years, President Trump has increased the stock market more than any president has in EIGHT years. How incredible is that? And since 44% of workers have access to a 401k, that means huge increases in their retirement savings (which languished under Barack Obama). Just this past week we set new records in the S&P and the Dow Jones average. Winning has never been this easy.
