If the U.S. economy continues to surge under President Trump, I may need to change the name of my website. In December 2009 I started “The Economic Collapse”, and it was quite an appropriate title at the time. In fact, the 10 years immediately preceding the Trump presidency was one of the worst stretches for the U.S. economy in our entire history. But now things are changing. Manufacturers are coming back to America, unemployment is falling, and the stock market has been soaring.
During his State of the Union address, President Trump called this “our new American moment”, and at this time it is hard for anyone to disagree with him. Things are definitely better for ordinary Americans than they were under previous administrations, and even some of Trump’s most hardcore critics are starting to come around.
The Democrats were hoping to use Trump’s speech to launch a new wave of attacks against him, but that massively backfired. The State of the Union address may have been Trump’s best performance to date, and even a CBS News poll found that his speech got an astounding 75 percent approval rating.
