Trump's successes have raised the Bloomberg comfort index to 66. This is the highest rating since 2000.
Democrats have demanded Trump’s unreleased tax returns, claimed he is mentally ill, proposed his ouster via the 25th Amendment, and invoked Stormy Daniels, the emoluments clause, “Racism!,” Russiagate, “Baltimore!,” and now the Ukraine-o-Rama impeachment saga. The donkeys always try to trample Trump.
Despite all of this, President Trump rounds third with an enviable big-league record. His economic, domestic, and foreign-policy hits merit the Hall of Fame:
Since Election Day 2016, the S&P 500 is up 56 percent. The Dow has climbed 60 percent and closed Friday at a new record: 29,348. The NASDAQ has soared 81 percent.
Unemployment is at 3.5 percent, the lowest since 1969. Adult-female unemployment is 3.2 percent, approximating levels seen under President Eisenhower. Joblessness for blacks, Hispanics, and Americans of Asian descent are at or near record lows. A total of 260,181,000 Americans are employed — the most since 1776.
