Trump Creating Jobs. Mainstream media reports indicating President Donald J. Trump would not win the White House in 2016 are the same liberal-establishment media constantly reminding citizen about his low job approval ratings. But indicators that matters the most to Americans — the ones regarding their jobs and financial stability — reveal that President Trump’s presidency scoring is impressive.

Consumer Confidence is the highest it has been in 17 years, however most wouldn’t know it from a sampling of recent headlines from liberal media. Month after month the Trump administration results clobber the narrative reporting from the leftist media:

  • Consumer confidence is lowest since Trump election– Jun. 16, 2017–CNN
  • Consumer Confidence Cooling as Trump Agenda Stalls– May 30, 2017 U.S. News 
  • Consumer sentiment falls again in July as Trump euphoria wears off– July 2017–Market Watch 
  • Several CEOs are voicing the same complaint about one of Trump’s biggest brags– August 2017–Business Insider 
  • US Consumer Confidence Confounds Experts–Newburgh Gazette Jul 25, 2017
  • Weaker Prospects for Incomes Weigh on US Consumer Sentiment–July 28, 2017–Bloomberg

The truth is that the Dow Jones Industrial Average continues reaching all time highs, and the unemployment rate is now at 16-year low. The Trump Administration continues to defy the liberal narratives by creating jobs and boosting the economy.

“Prosperity is coming back to our shores because we’re putting American workers and families first. The American dream has always been about doing what we love and doing it for the people we love. Whether serving in the armed forces, manufacturing goods, or starting a small business, our citizens pursue their aspirations and approve the lives of millions in countless, countless ways.”–President Trump

Broadly defined, a healthy economy is typically one that has a stable and strong rate of economic growth and low unemployment, according to Ballotpedia, the online encyclopedia of American politics and elections.  The table below displays and compares some of those most important economic indicators for the fifty states and the District of Columbia.

Note: Gross state product (GSP) on its own is not necessarily an indicator of economic health; GSP may also be influenced by state population size. Many factors must be looked at together to assess state economic health.

Various economic indicators by state
