Yesterday President Trump was mad about crude oil prices being too high, but throw all of that out the window today. Here’s why…
Yesterday our President had this to say about oil prices:
Oil prices are too high, OPEC is at it again. Not good!

None of that should matter a day later, however, because our economy should be able to handle higher oil prices and subsequent higher gas prices with no problem.
Well, if you didn’t know, we have the greatest economy.
See for yourself:
The Republican Party is starting to show very big numbers. People are starting to see what is being done. Results are speaking loudly. North Korea and our greatest ever economy are leading the way!

That’s a bold statement to make.
Forget about America’s rise after World War II.
Forget about America leading the charge with automobiles and aviation.
Forget about electricity, the light bulb and all of those inventions that changed the lives of so many.
Certainly forget about the time our money was actually gold and silver coins.
Forget about a time when prices were truly stable because our money was a specific weight and purity of gold & sliver.
Forget about any time in U.S. economic history, because the economy has never, ever, been better.
Forget about all those great, high paying manufacturing jobs that no longer exist.
Forget about a government that has to borrow massive amounts of fiat just to operate.
Forget about owing pretty much every single nation on the planet U.S. dollars because of a perpetual trade deficit.
Forget about the drug epidemic and surging suicide rates.
Forget about the rampant homelessness and tent cities all across America.
Forget about Baby Boomers working longer and Millennials unable to find work.
None of that matters, because what Candidate Trump said was a big, fat, ugly bubble on September 26th, 2016:
He’s officially made America great again.
President Trump sounds kind of like this:
Or that he’s brought the troops back home.
Or that he’s ended the wars he said we shouldn’t be in.
Or that he’s made government smaller and less invasive.
I guess we just have to take it one step at a time.
At least the first step was having the greatest economy.
