Stock Market Still in the Trump Doldrums

I don’t have any good reason to post this. It’s just to annoy Trump fans by showing yet again that the current economy is nothing more than a straightforward extension of the Obama economy. Trump hasn’t wrecked Obama’s legacy yet, but that’s about the most he can say for himself.
