Monday Starts an Excellent Week for President Donald Trump

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – Tomorrow night, February 4th, 2020,  President Donald Trump delivers his third State of the Union Address.
 
“He’ll quite rightly be able to declare the nation is strong — with solid economic growth and jobs for all who want them and a Dow more than 50 percent higher than when he won the White House. Not to mention a new North American trade agreement just as candidate Trump promised, China desperate to end the trade war and America’s NATO allies paying much more of their fair share for collective defense.”

Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – U.S. Secretary of Defense Ashton B. Carter visited 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) Soldiers at Fort Campbell. January 13th, 2016.

Carter wanted to speak to 101st Airborne Division Soldiers directly prior to their upcoming deployment in support of Operation Inherent Resolve, in which they will work to train, advise and assist the Iraqi army to defeat the ISIL.

“Frankly, I know the 101st has taken Mosul before, and you could do it again,” Carter said while speaking to more than 200 Screaming Eagle Soldiers set to deploy in the coming weeks. “We could deploy multiple brigades on the ground and arrive in force, but then it would likely become our fight and our fight alone.”

The economic data were mixed. Retail sales rose a modest 0.1% in January. Industrial production slipped 0.1%, but figures for November and December were revised higher. The New York Fed’s Empire State Manufacturing Index and the mid-February reading on consumer sentiment surprised to the upside. «Read the rest of this article»
