Is the US economy thriving because of or despite Trump?
The positive effect began on 11-06-2016.
Probably neither. The first budget of his administration is only a month old (& really it was just a continuing resolution). Any executive orders haven’t really had time to show much effect either way.
Having said that, the economy has been humming along for about 6-7 years. It might be due for a slowing. Analysts are saying the markets are very soft & could have bursting of the bubble soon. Taking credit for any new record the DOW sets, what will Trump say if it starts going down?
Easy! It is either Obama’s fault or the Dems fault.
For those answering "both", my apologies, it was hard to write that into the binary answer choices. I am also curious to what extent you soh-ers believe any president affects the economy.
I don’t believe presidents have much effect on the economy and if they do it’s not immediate.
