America is winning this #CyberMonday, thanks to President Trump
So much winning.
That’s what President Donald Trump promised America and nearly eleven months to the day, he has delivered like Santa with a sleigh full of goodies.
As millions of Americans scavenger for online deals this Cyber Monday, the economy continues to boom under President Trump, and America is poised to break records again.
Black Friday sales already smashed records. On Friday, Americans spent a record $5 billion online in just 24 hours, a whopping 17 percent increase over last year. That doesn’t even include the nearly $3 billion Americans spent online on Thanksgiving.
Cyber Monday is expected to surpass that.
In fact, this year’s Cyber Monday sales are expected to be the highest in history, and it stands to reason — when Americans are confident about where the economy is headed, they are more likely to spend money.
Under President Trump, consumer confidence has hit a 17-year high.
At the same time, unemployment has hit a 16-year low under Trump which means that Americans are gainfully employed and have paychecks to spend.
Big business is feeling pretty good, too. The markets have hit more than 50 record highs since Trump’s inauguration. The S&P 500 is up 21.1 percent since the 2016 election, the Dow Jones Industrial Average has gained 28.5 percent, and the Nasdaq Composite has increased more than 30 percent. The New York Stock Exchange soared past 21,000, 22,000 then 23,000 and shows no signs of slowing down.
President Trump has actively pushed for manufacturing jobs to return to the U.S., whether they are companies that bear the “Made in the USA” label or car companies such as Toyota who plan to open new factories in states like North Carolina.
Trump’s successes are even impacting holiday travel.
A record number of Americans reportedly traveled over the long holiday weekend. Air travel was estimated to be the highest since 2005, when President George W. Bush held office. Nearly 50 million cars were expected to hit the roads as well, representing an increase of 3.2 percent over last year.
All of these economic successes are taking place on top of an already banner year for Trump’s campaign promises.
Say what you will about President Trump, but one fact cannot be ignored: the economy is booming and this holiday season, he continues to make America great again.
