A TALE OF TWO ECONOMIES …
The comparison of the Donald Trump and Barack Obama economies can best be describes like a Tale of Two Cities, “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair.” Guess which one was which? Just look at the color codes numbers below that compare November of 2016 under Obama and November of 2017 under President Donald Trump. Even partisan Democrats can compare these numbers. Ever wonder why the liberal, bias media does not want to tout Trump’s accomplishments and continuously report on a Russian collusion story that does not exist? Because Americans are back to work, including Blacks and Hispanics. Under Obama in Nov. 2016. Black unemployment was at 8.1% and for Hispanics 5.7%. However, under Trump in Nov. 2017, Black unemployment is down to 7.3% and Hispanics at 4.1%. In Nov. 2017, manufacturing unemployment rate fell to a record low under Trump. The manufacturing sector added 31,000 jobs, while its unemployment rate fell to a record-low 2.6%. Under Obama, he claimed the manufacturing jobs were gone for good and many were lost on his watch.
For Barack Obama, he was the Food Stamp president. Donald Trump is the economic recovery president. Add the Stock market president too. The DOW is currently at 24,329.16. Remember when the foolish LEFT said on election night that the Stock market was going to crash because of a Trump election? How did that work out?

ADP Services Reports Private payrolls increased by 190,000 in November, 2017 … Manufacturing Had its Best Month of the Year with 40,000 New jobs
DONALD TRUMP IS MAKING JOBS GREAT AGAIN IN AMERICA …
Manufacturing had its best month of the year with 40,000 new jobs!!! Trump is doing what Obama said was impossible. He is bring back manufacturing jobs. Maybe the liberal MSM would like to report this. It is amazing what has gone on in the economy and the stock market since Trump has wo the presidency. Too bad the media and Democrats couldn’t provide credit where credit is due.
Surge in manufacturing jobs causes private payrolls to rise more than expected in November
- Private payrolls increased by 190,000 in November, ahead of analyst expectations of 185,000 but less than the 235,000 in October.
- Manufacturing had its best month of the year with 40,000 new jobs. Service-oriented industries grew by 155,000.
- Moody’s economist Mark Zandi says the jobs market is “red-hot” and there’s a danger it could “overheat” in 2018.
The manufacturing industry posted its best month of job gains all year, leading a better-than-expected rise in private payrolls during November.
Companies added 190,000 in the month as the economy seemed to return to normal following the violent hurricane season, according to the monthly report from ADP and Moody’s Analytics. The total was just above the 185,000 expected from economists surveyed by Reuters and below the 235,000 growth in October.
The manufacturing sector added 40,000 positions alone.
LINDSEY, SHUT UP AND SKI …
In a loaded and politically bias interview with CNN’s Alpine Edge, US Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn was asked how she felt competing in an Olympics for the United States whose president is Donald Trump? Vonn responded by saying, “Well I hope to represent the people of the United States, not the president.” Really, so you will be representing the people, not the president? Last time I checked Donald J. Trump was a person of the United States. It is sad that these athletes would let politics get in the way of athletics as all this has accomplished is having people, yes the American people, hate you. Lindsey, you do realize that 62,984,825 people of the United States voted for President Trump, right? It is a sad commentary that these athletes cannot shut up and just do what they are skilled at, instead of alienating half of America.
On a person note, I have skied since I was in the second grade. I grew up in a part of the country where we had half days on Wednesday and Friday so we could lean to ski. I have long followed Alpine skiing and snowboarding forever, long before it was cool to. And have known individuals who trained for the Olympic ski team and made it. And some who passed away in the pursuit of it. I have long cheered for Lindsey Vonn because of her amazing talent. However, for the first time I will find myself not cheering for Lindsey not to win Olympic gold. Not because she isn’t a Trump fan, but because she is so ignorant and bias in her beliefs, that she is acting like the very individual she thinks that Donald Trump is. It is sad that athletes think they have to mouth off and tell us about their political beliefs. WE DON’T CARE!!! Sports and the Olympics is an escape from politics. Thanks for ruining that Lindsey.
A number of US athletes have spoken out against Donald Trump during his presidency — and skier Lindsey Vonn has become the latest to have her say.
Targeting Olympic gold at February’s Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, Vonn is in St. Moritz, Switzerland, where she spoke passionately about what it means to compete for the US ski team.
“Well I hope to represent the people of the United States, not the president,” Vonn told CNN’s Alpine Edge.
And Vonn revealed she wouldn’t accept an invitation to the White House if she were to win gold at Pyeongchang.
“Absolutely not,” said Vonn. “No. But I have to win to be invited. No actually I think every US team member is invited so no I won’t go.
WHO HONESTLY DOESN’T THINK JERUSALEM SHOULDN’T BE THE CAPITAL?
From ABC News, President Donald Trump is to declare Jerusalem the capital of Israel. The president is expected to officially announce the policy changes in remarks at the White House at 1pm on Wednesday. Trump once again is fulfilling a campaign promise. One that other presidents made before him and failed to follow thru with.
In a momentous shift of United States foreign policy in the Middle East, President Donald Trump is set to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel on Wednesday and initiate the process of relocating the U.S. embassy to the city from Tel Aviv, according to senior administration officials.
The president is expected to officially announce the policy changes in remarks at the White House at 1pm on Wednesday.
A U.S. official and a source close to the White House told ABC News that official recognition of Jerusalem as the capital is expected to be intentionally broad and not meant to preclude the possibility that the Palestinians could claim part of the historic city as a capital of a future Palestinian state. The president does not want to “prejudice” the outcome of any future peace negotiations for a two-state solution, one source familiar with the plan told ABC News.
YES VIRGINIA, THERE IS A SANTA CLAUS, CHRISTMAS COMES EARLY AND GOOD RIDDANCE …
As reported at The Politico, CNN will not be attending this year’s White House Christmas party. I am sure Presidential Donald Trump is going to lose sleep over this. Maybe CNN will have more time now instead of attending the party to edit their news to make sure it is not fake. In response to CNN’s non-attendance, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders tweeted Tuesday night, “Christmas comes early! Finally, good news from @CNN.” They are only hurting themselves and further proving they are not a news organization by taking things so personally. CNN is becoming less and less relevant every day.
Adding fuel to its growing feud with President Donald Trump, CNN told POLITICO it will be boycotting the White House Christmas party for the media this year.
“CNN will not be attending this year’s White House Christmas party,” a CNN spokesperson said. “In light of the President’s continued attacks on freedom of the press and CNN, we do not feel it is appropriate to celebrate with him as his invited guests. We will send a White House reporting team to the event and report on it if news warrants.”
The annual event, scheduled for Friday at 2 p.m., is typically seen as a time when reporters and their bosses can mingle freely with administration members, but Trump’s posture toward the press has been uniquely aggressive.
Since Trump began his run for office, CNN has been one of his favorite targets. He has often criticized the network as “fake news” and alleged that the network makes up stories.
In response to this news, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders tweeted Tuesday night, “Christmas comes early! Finally, good news from @CNN.”
