DOW GOES BOOM: Stock index soars past latest milestone after Trump’s address

The Dow Jones Industrial Average crossed the 21000 milestone at the opening bell Wednesday morning in what was one of the fastest 1,000-point advances in the blue-chip index’s history.

Optimism on Wall Street came from President Donald Trump’s first address to a joint session of Congress on Tuesday night in which he outlined the ways in which he hoped to “make America great again.” His policy priorities included repealing the Affordable Care Act – a cornerstone of President Barack Obama’s administration, revamping the U.S. tax code, improving trade policies, and requesting Congress approve $1 trillion for infrastructure spending.

The president’s speech offered few explicit details about how he plans to move these policy priorities across the finish line, but that didn’t seem to bother U.S. investors much who sent the Dow nearly 200 points higher at the start of trade.

    But there is Schumer who said that he did not agree with any one point of Trump’s speech. I bet that his stock portfolio did!

  • CBUJAN says:

    Their has to be more Americans coming to the side of President Trump with the stock market soaring to new heights and believing he is going to make America great again. His speech was just amazing.

  • justinwachin says:

    Under President Trump we may see a new era of prosperity. His speech was full of ideas which are doable and which will help fulfill his goal of making America great again. Many of his initiatives would have been lauded by Democrats of generations past. Hopefully they will join hands with us to enact President Trump’s agenda and to make America great again.

      Don’t bet any rent or food money on the Dems joining us.

        I’m afraid you are right. They are missing out on a great opportunity. Oh well…

          It’s not about them missing out on anything. It’s about them doing the job they were elected to do. That being what’s good for the country. As I’ve said before, they only know you at election time. The rest of the time, they care only about themselves.

    In my estimation if Trump is good for business it will be good for the people also. Now if the obstructionist(Repubs and Dems) he can get things done. The senators and congressmen of both parties are not what who they have said they are and if you pay attention you will see every one of them trying to stop Trump. How can they run on their records of failure and get reelected? People seem to have no choice.
    I saw something about an investigation into Trump because he owns this and that. He is a billionaire doesn’t that come with owning things? They had better hope nobody investigates them.

    1. Retired says:

      You nailed it correctly, investigate all of congress and have them all Drug tested like the Military , but then they are above the law Just ask the Clintons.

        Democrats answer is simple: Do as I say! Not as I do!
        As American Citizens, the Dems feel we have only 2 important functions. Pay Taxes and Vote Democrat. We have no other use to them, and we DAMN SURE don’t have a right to an opinion of their actions!!!!!
