Shocking: NBC's Chuck Todd Actually Gives Trump A Standing Ovation

Democrats claim to like statistics and numbers. They claim to be data driven (even though we ALL know that's generally not the case). But even NBC's Chuck Todd can't deny it: the economy is booming under President Donald Trump. Unemployment is at a record low. We haven't seen numbers like this since the late 1960s.

As much as it probably killed him to admit on live TV, Todd gave credit to Trump, saying "the economy is doing great."

For awhile, Democrats tried to deny the unemployment numbers. Even some of the 2020 Democrats attempted to make the case that Americans were worse off under a Trump presidency than President Barack Obama's administration. They've seen the numbers. And guess what? They're now changing their tune. They're now spinning the data to try and say the unemployment rate has to do with the Obama administration's policies. 

What's interesting to look at though, is President Trump's approval ratings verses President Barack Obama's approval ratings.

When Obama took office in January 2009 his approval rating was 67 percent. In April 2015 – at roughly the same time Trump is currently at during his presidency – Obama's approval rating dropped to 45 percent.

President Trump's approval rating has actually gone up. When he took office in January 2017 his approval rating was 49 percent. It now sits 56 percent. 

What does this show? Americans have faith in the Trump economy. They're seeing more money in their paychecks thanks to Trump's tax cuts. They're feeling good about the direction things are headed. More people are employed and more money is in people's pockets instead of in the government's bank account. 

If people had that kind of confidence in the so-called Obama policies that are supposedly sparking the economy, why was consumer confidence down? Why were people afraid of spending their money? 

Democrats, it's time to give credit where credit is due.
