It appears that President Trump is using a move straight out of President Reagan’s playbook.
The Western Journal writes, A week before the 1980 presidential election, then-President Jimmy Carter and then-candidate Ronald Reagan held their only debate.
At the time, Carter trailed by a few percentage points, but most pundits were calling the race “too close to call.” During the debate, Reagan famously asked voters: “Are you better off today than you were four years ago?”
Reagan won the election by a landslide the following week.
Now, It appears that President Donald Trump is asking voters the same question. Using his social media platform, Truth Social, he posted two charts of comparison.
In the first graph, President Joe Biden’s leadership of the tech-heavy Nasdaq index was compared with President Trump’s leadership.
In the second chart, the gains and losses were shown numerically. In addition, Dow Jones Industrial Average and S&P 500 data are included.
According to Facts First, who generated the statistics, since Biden took office, the Nasdaq has lost 17.65 percent of its value. During the same time while Trump was president, the Nasdaq had gained 44.17 percent. The Nasdaq index soared over 130 percent by the time Trump left office.
Under Biden, the Dow has lost 4.33 percent. The stock was up 35.53 percent at this point under Trump.
Under Biden, the S&P 500 index has fallen by 2.78 percent. As of this point in Trump’s presidency, it had gained 29.42 percent.
This only proves the words of another historic presidential debate where a prediction was made.
Trump said, “The stock market will boom if I win.” He added, “If Biden’s elected, the stock market will crash.”. And Trump was exactly right.
