The Stock Market Has Gone Up More Than 5 Trillion Dollars Since Donald Trump Was Elected – Michael Snyder THE ECONOMIC COLLAPSE BLOG
Posted: 08 Nov 2017 Michael Snyder THE ECONOMIC COLLAPSE BLOG
One year ago we witnessed the greatest miracle in political history, and since that time we have also witnessed one of the greatest miracles in financial history. On November 8th, 2016 the Dow closed at 18,332.74. On Wednesday, it closed at 23,563.36. U.S. stocks have increased in value by about 5.4 trillion dollars since Donald Trump was elected, and I don’t think that we have seen anything quite like this ever before. So does Donald Trump deserve the credit for this unprecedented stock market run? Many experts are at least giving him part of the credit…
Without a doubt, a Trump victory was a good thing for the financial markets, but politicians need to be careful not to take too much credit for soaring stock prices.
I want to be very clear about what I am going to say next.

On November 8th, 2016 we witnessed the greatest miracle in the history of American politics. Leading up to election day, virtually all of the experts were boldly assuring us that Hillary Clinton would be the next president of the United States. Personally, I was quite alarmed about what a Hillary Clinton presidency would mean, because Clinton’s vindictiveness is legendary and my anti-Clinton articles had been seen by millions of people. When Trump shocked the world by winning the election, it was like an entirely new day had just dawned in America. If Donald Trump could become president of the United States, literally anything was possible.
President Trump has been visiting Asia this week, but on Wednesday he took a few moments to thank those that voted for him last November…
It has been 12 months, but it is still hard to grasp what happened on that historic night. Nobody in the mainstream media seemed to believe that Trump had a chance, and his shock victory took almost the entire nation by surprise. The following is an extended excerpt from an article that I published on the day after Trump’s victory entitled “Do You Believe In Miracles?”…
After it was all over, I kind of stumbled around my home lost in my thoughts. I was happy, confused, hopeful, stunned and pensive all at the same time. Like so many others, what I thought I knew about politics turned out to be wrong. But in other ways, the election of Donald Trump has confirmed so much of what I know to be right about America.
Millions of us that had worked so hard to get Trump elected were absolutely jubilant, but of course there were millions of others that were bitterly disappointed. If you want to take a walk down memory lane, watch this YouTube video that shows a whole host of liberal talking heads melting down in the aftermath of Trump’s win. They also knew that something had just fundamentally changed in America, and they were not happy about it at all.
As for me, I am proud to stand with President Trump, and pro-Trump voters all over the nation are getting involved in my campaign for Congress.
