ANALYSIS/OPINION:

One year into the administration, the stock market is booming, jobless claims are the lowest since the Nixon era, consumer confidence is soaring and the raging question being debated by talking heads is who is mostly responsible for this historic resurgence: President Obama or President Trump?

To me, the answer is crystal clear: President Trump. And here’s why: In 2011, during the midst of the Great Recession when the Obama administration was making every decision that went against the best interests of America, Donald Trump wrote a book titled, “Time to Get Tough: Making America #1 Again” in which he excoriated Mr. Obama’s lame economic policies while outlining all the measures he would take to fix the country and “make America great again.”

On June 15, 2015, the day Mr. Trump announced his candidacy at Trump Tower, odds-makers listed him as a 200 to 1 underdog to win the presidency and after boldly declaring that he’d be “the greatest jobs president that God ever created,” he was mercilessly mocked by the media for even dare trying.

What I believe was the greatest example of non-reporting by the media was that his aforementioned 2011 book was the blueprint for his campaign platform. Anyone who read it knows that Mr. Trump is solely responsible for the booming economy because he’s implementing the blueprint of this book to the letter.

So anyone who dares to say that Mr. Obama is responsible for the roaring economy that coincidentally got jump-started the day after Election Day, must read Mr. Trump’s book.
