During the 2016 campaign, Trump always said he would be a great president for the economy. So far, he has delivered on that promise. America’s GDP is up and unemployment is way down.
In fact, he is doing such a good job on the economy that he is getting better marks than the last five presidents.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Boom: Trump’s handling of economy ‘exceeds’ average of Obama, Bush, Clinton, Bush, Reagan
President Trump’s push to build on the nation’s financial recovery has won solid support from Americans, giving his handling of the economy a higher approval rating the the average of his five predecessors.
Gallup on Thursday said, “He has averaged a 48 percent approval rating for handling the economy thus far in office, which exceeds the combined average 45 percent economic approval for his five immediate predecessors across their entire terms.”
For Trump, who helped push through massive tax cuts and promised that trade wars will help return U.S. jobs, the top issue is the economy followed by his handling of North Korea.
The polling outfit noted that unlike former Presidents Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama, Trump was handed an improving economy.
The great news is that Trump is really just getting started.
