Despite any evidence that President Trump colluded with Russia to win the election, Democrats have continued to embrace the narrative.
President Trump sent out a post on his Twitter feed discussing this issue and what the Left has habitually ignored since he took office. He stated, “Since the first day I took office, all you hear is the phony Democrat excuse for losing the election, Russia, Russia, Russia. Despite this I have the economy booming and have possibly done more than any 10-month President. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”
According to Fox News, the liberal media and the Left were likely crushed when it was revealed that Special Counsel Robert Mueller had issued indictments for crimes committed by Paul Manafort before, and not related to in any way, President Trump’s campaign for the presidency.
An investigation that has gone on for more than six months now has failed to yield any evidence that President Trump colluded with Russia to win the election. Yet the Left continues obsessing with the narrative, running with the idea that President Trump’s former advisor George Papadopoulos’ admission of lying to the FBI about his contact with a Russian national, is somehow proof of their claims.
But this admission of lying to the FBI shows no evidence of collusion. Communicating with someone from Russia in itself is not collusion. Nor would it even be considered collusion unless that individual was compensated by President Trump’s team to help him win the election, which didn’t happen.
President Trump’s tweet points to the idea that the Left is absolutely refusing to admit that his presidency is doing wonders for America’s once stagnate economy. Rather than give President Trump credit, they simply refuse to talk about it, preferring instead to discuss his supposed corruption. When they do discuss the economy, it’s somehow attributed to former-President Barack Obama’s efforts and nothing that President Trump has done.
According to Townhall, the economy under President Trump has been growing successfully, and it has very little to do with Mr. Obama. For starters, the stock market has been thriving. As of October, the Dow Jones has risen 25 percent since President Trump won the election. That 25 percent gain is the largest the DOW has ever had.
There has been 63 record stock market closing highs, 46 happening after President Trump’s inauguration — a shocking number when compared to the closing highs under President Obama, which was zero.
In fact, $5 trillion has been added to the US economy since President Trump entered the White House.
The GDP, which is used to determine the health of the economy, especially small businesses, has had 3.1 percent growth with President Trump. Under President Obama, it was a weak 1.3 percent, coincidentally the same GDP growth during the Great Depression.
Jobs have increased by 1.33 million instead of the 4.59 million lost during the beginning of President Obama’s first term. A stunning difference is that many of the jobs created under President Obama were part-time positions, while many of the jobs created under President Trump are full-time positions. In fact, September saw an additional 935,000 full-time jobs, on the top four of biggest increases in US history.
Perhaps most impressive is that these gains were largely obtained without adding too much to the US debt. As of October, President Trump only added $400 billion, or two percent, to the national debt. During the same amount of time in President Obama’s first term, he added $1.3 trillion, or 12 percent.
The economy has exploded under President Trump, yet Democrats keep thumping the Trump-Russia collusion false-narrative. Are Democrats simply trying to detract from President Trump’s successes?
Perhaps the reason the Left is clinging so much to the Russia collusion narrative is that they want to report on anything other than the successes President Trump has been bringing in. While they call for impeachment and justice for an alleged crime with no evidence, President Trump has been working hard to boost the economy and create jobs.
If President Trump could accomplish this much in the first ten months of his presidency, imagine what he’ll do for the US economy in an entire term, or even a second term for that matter.
