Trump has repeatedly used the stock market as a barometer for how the U.S. economy is doing.
What he won’t say is that the stock market did better under President Obama than it has under his watch.
From the inauguration to the end of Year 3, the S&P 500 stock market, the broadest barometer of U.S. companies, jumped 42% under President Trump. Under President Obama, it was up 56.2% over the same time period.
The figures were released after 2019’s final day of trading by Axios.
As you can see, the data shows companies even did better under George Bush Sr. compared to President Trump. And he just about edged Bill Clinton.
Don’t expect the President to tweet anything about that though.
