Below is a list of President Donald J. Trump’s many accomplishments.
The President’s first term is arguably the best for any President in US history since Washington. And this is despite the fact that no President since Lincoln has faced the massive attacks from his adversaries that this President has faced.
After President Trump was elected the stock market skyrocketed. The markets are a gauge of the economy and include expectations of the future. On November 8th, 2016, the DOW stood at 18,332. Since that date the DOW has soared to historic heights.
Not only has the DOW skyrocketed since Donald Trump was elected President, the market’s rise was record breaking. Since the 2016 election, the DOW has closed at new record all-time highs more than 100 times! The markets have now reached 131 new all time closing highs since the 2016 election and 114 since President Trump’s inauguration.
President Trump’s first year in office (2017) saw the most all-time stock market closing highs (71). The most all-time highs in a year prior to 2017 was 69 in 1995.
President Trump’s third year in office (2019) saw the largest increase in the DOW in history (5,211 points). Prior to 2017, no year in the DOW’s more than 100-year history ever saw the DOW increase by more than 3,500 points, let alone 5,000.
Since President Trump was elected President the DOW tied the record for the most all-time closing highs in a row. In January of 1987 President Reagan saw the DOW increase to new all-time highs a record 12 days in a row. In February of 2017, President Trump matched Reagan’s record.
The DOW reached its fastest 500 point increase between major milestones under President Trump. In January of 2018 the DOW surpassed 26,000 and six days later the DOW surpassed 26,500. Since President Trump’s election win the DOW has seen the fastest 1,000; 2,000; 3,000; 4,000; 5,000; 6,000; 7,000, 8,000 and 9,000 point increases in DOW history. No similar records occurred during the Obama years.
Also, President Trump didn’t ride an Obama wave, the DOW under Obama went down in 2015 and stayed relatively flat until the 2016 election. The DOW is currently up 50% since the 2016 election.
