President Donald J. Trump is celebrating arguably the best first three years for any President in US history since Washington. In spite of the fact that no President since Lincoln has faced the massive attacks coming from his adversaries that this President has faced.
Below is a list of President Trump’s many major accomplishments his first three years in office.
After President Trump was elected the stock market skyrocketed. The markets are a gauge of the economy and include expectations of the future. On November 8th, 2016, the DOW stood at 18,332. Since that date the DOW has soared to historic heights.
Not only has the DOW skyrocketed since Donald Trump was elected President, the market’s rise is record breaking. Since the 2016 election, the DOW has closed at new record all-time highs more than 100 times! The markets have now reached 131 new all time closing highs since the 2016 election and 114 since President Trump’s inauguration.
President Trump’s first year in office (2017) saw the most all-time stock market closing highs (71). The most all-time highs in a year prior to 2017 was 69 in 1995.
President Trump’s third year in office (2019) saw the largest increase in DOW history (5,211 points). Prior to 2017, no year in the DOW’s more than 100-year history ever saw the DOW increase by more than 3,500 points, let alone 5,000.
Since President Trump was elected President the DOW tied the record for the most all-time closing highs in a row. In January of 1987 President Reagan saw the DOW increase to new all-time highs a record 12 days in a row. In February of 2017, President Trump matched Reagan’s record.
The DOW reached its fastest 500 point increase between major milestones under President Trump. In January of 2018 the DOW surpassed 26,000 and six days later the DOW surpassed 26,500. Since President Trump’s election win the DOW has seen the fastest 1,000; 2,000; 3,000; 4,000; 5,000; 6,000; 7,000, 8,000 and 9,000 point increases in DOW history. No similar records occurred during the Obama years.
Also, President Trump didn’t ride an Obama wave, the DOW under Obama went down in 2015 and stayed relatively flat until the 2016 election. As of the close of business on Friday, January 17, 2020, the DOW stands at 29,348. It’s currently up 60% since the 2016 election.
All the major indices are way up under President Trump and many records have been set. The markets’ rise since President Trump’s election are historic.
GDP and Debt
According Rex Sinquefield at Forbes in October of 2016 –
The Obama recovery of the last seven years remains the worst in postwar American history. Average gross domestic product (GDP) growth since the bottom of the recession in 2009 was barely above 2.1% per year. The average since 1949 is well above 4% per year during the previous 10 expansions.
This result is not just bad, it is catastrophic. The average American should not be wondering if his or her income is a bit above or below 2007 levels. Just by historical averages, the average American should be 20% better off than in 2007. And this slow growth is settling in as a permanent new-abnormal.
I believe the root cause of abysmal growth is the huge tax increases imposed by Obama and the Democrats in Congress since 2008. The most harmful were the increase in the capital gains tax from 15 to 20 percent, the increase in top bracket income from 35 to 39.6 percent, and the new tax of 3.8 percent on investment income in the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The massive increase in regulatory burden through the ACA and Dodd-Frank bills are also crushing, but unfortunately are harder to measure.
President Obama never reached an annual GDP Growth rate of more than 3.0%. No President over the past century had not ever been held to GDP growth rates of less than 3.0% until Obama. But President Trump averaged a better than 3% GDP in 2018.
More impressively, when comparing the amount of US Debt from the government’s daily report of debt to the amount of GDP from the current GDP release, as of June 2019 the amount of debt to GDP is decreasing under President Trump (a very good thing).
The ratio of debt to GDP is decreasing drastically – from 105.3% when Obama was President to 103.2% at the end of the 2nd Quarter of 2019! (Note that Obama increased the Debt to GDP ratio by 30% over his first two years and more than 40% during his two terms in office. Also, under Obama the Fed kept rates at 0% for his first seven years! If President Trump had the same luxury the Debt to GDP would be much less because US debt would be $1 trillion less. More than one trillion of the increase in debt under President Trump is due to the Fed’s increases in rates.)
Job numbers through the end of December 2019 show an increase of 7 million jobs since President Trump won the 2016 election and American now has an unemployment rate of 3.5 percent. The current unemployment rate of 3.5% is the lowest it’s been in 50 years!
After the same period under Obama, (2) million jobs were lost and unemployment skyrocketed to 9%!
For the first time the US is recording more job openings than unemployed to fill them.
Only in America could a President achieve the lowest ever black and Hispanic unemployment, have black business startups skyrocket 400%, see wages go up for black workers, advocate for prison reform, pardon wrongfully convicted people of color, and still be called a racist

An Increase in Annual Income of $5,000 per Family
According to economist Stephen Moore –
The average family in the United States today has seen an increase in their annual income of $5,000 under President Donald J. Trump.
Middle-class incomes, after adjusting for inflation, have surged by $5,003 since Donald Trump became president in January 2017.
Median incomes of Americans are at an all-time high under President Trump.
President Trump vowed to destroy ISIS. Despite President Obama saying that ISIS will be around for a generation, these murderers and terrorists in the Middle East were decimated in a very short period of time. Both Syria and Iraq declared victory over ISIS and due to President Trump’s resolve. Terrorist leaders of ISIS and Iran have been killed. The world is a safer place.
President Trump met with the Pope, leaders of 50 Muslim countries and Israeli and European leaders on his first trip abroad. He demanded that the Muslim leaders remove radicals from their countries.
The President refused sending Pakistan security assistance in the millions due to the Pakistani’s harboring terrorists. He stopped an Obama last minute $221 million transfer to Palestine and cut aid to Palestinians in half. He showed that the US is unwilling to work with Muslim entities that support radical Islam.
On President Trump’s successful trip to Asia in 2017 he bundled an estimated $300 billion in deals for the US. He met with Asian leaders and was the first US President and foreign leader to dine in China’s Forbidden City since the founding of modern China.
The President met with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore in 2018. It was the first meeting between a US President and a North Korean leader since the Korean War. Then this past summer President Trump was the first American President to enter North Korea.
The President is showing who is the greatest leader of the greatest country in the world. In spite of this, every time the President was working for Americans abroad, the Democrats were working to destroy him:
Every time President Trump is strengthening our country on the international stage, Democrats are trying to bring him down.
There is only one word to describe their actions. ⇨ Sabotage. pic.twitter.com/N0uLR7Wgzv

* Dismantling Obama’s climate change initiatives.
* Travel bans for individuals from a select number of countries embroiled in terrorist atrocities.
* Enforcing regulatory reform.
* Protecting Law enforcement.
* Mandating for every new regulation to eliminate two.
* Defeating ISIS.
* Rebuilding the military.
* Building a border wall.
* Cutting funding for sanctuary cities.
* Approving Keystone and Dakota pipelines.
* Reducing regulations on manufacturers.
* Placing a hiring freeze on federal employees.
* Exiting the US from the TPP.
The list of POTUS 45’s successes goes on and on (See WhiteHouse.gov) –
The President has gotten the US out of terrible US job killing trade deals. He replaced these deals with agreements that help the US and the American worker. He lowered taxes and removed barriers to oil and coal resulting in America becoming the world’s number one oil producer. He got the US out of terrible deals related to climate change and Iran. The list goes on and on….
Undoubtedly there is more to do.
The wall is not yet in place and the Democrats are not helping. Their only accomplishment over these past three years is to impeach the President based on hearsay and no crimes being committed after conducting an inquisition in the basement of the US Capital.
The FBI and DOJ are headed by Obama leftovers who are involved in corrupt and criminal activities. A bogus investigation was created by these scoundrels and as a result public opinion of the FBI and DOJ is at all time lows. The Mueller investigation will go down as the most corrupt investigation in US history.
After the Mueller gang scandal collapsed, the Democrats immediately started impeachment talk using an alleged whistleblower from the CIA who was spying on the President in the White House. Another day, another Deep State Democrat scandal.
No president has been under attack like President Trump since perhaps Lincoln during the Civil War in the 1860’s. Both men were unjustly attacked by the Democrats of their era. The media is corrupt and the Fed has done all it can to stymie economic growth.
Thanks Jim. Would be great to just run our Country! https://t.co/8GcmgQaVYK

President Trump charges forward in spite of liberal and Deep State harassment. His results have been down right miraculous.
Overall President Trump’s first three years in office were outstanding. He is attacked from all sides on a daily basis from evil people.
