There are few left out there in pundit world even trying to argue with the fact that Donald Trump is #Winning his way through his first year as President.
Even the Huffington Post, the liberal rag to end all liberal rags, admitted this week that they had no other way of describing the Trump presidency than as a success. This incredible realization occurring so far to the left of American culture is surely a milestone in modern presidential politics, not to mention a giant feather in the cap for a White House that has been battling The Resistance from prior to day one on the job.
Much of Trump’s success is certainly due to the President’s uncanny business background, and the weight that the Trump name carries into the negotiation room with it. The Donald has never had that politically appropriate layer of barnyard excrement to buffer his enthusiasm, and this straight-to-the-point barb of business wit scares the living hell out of the Deep State RINO’s stampeding around Capitol Hill.
To add fuel to the already blistering fire of successes that President Donald Trump can claim a hand in, we are now staring down one of the all-time Christmas shopping seasons in the financial record.
“Holiday shopping got off to a booming start in November, signaling sustained strength in the economy.
“Retail sales rose 0.8 percent on a monthly basis in November, more than twice the 0.3 percent gain expected by economists, according to data released Thursday by the Commerce Department.
“Data for October was revised sharply upward to 0.5 percent from the previously reported 0.2 percent rise.”
While those modest numbers may seem a bit mundane, when compared to last year, this is an increase of nearly 6% – a worthy number indeed.
This doesn’t even take into account the fact that a great deal of holiday shopping has yet to be accomplished. Newlyweds will be scrambling at the last minute to find that perfect something for their current perfect someone, and the bi-weekly paycheck millennials will certainly make an impact starting after the mid-month salary cycle ends.
Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. You can write to him c/o The White House.
