Thanks for your comments, but Obama's job performance was even better after
the end of the recession (topping out at 250,000 in 2014), and 187,000
average monthly jobs in 2016his was better than Trump's 171,000.
Yes, it's too early but Trump's first year, riding on Obama's successes,
does not bode well.
Of course, we must remind ourselves that presidents, all by themselves,
rarely cause any one thing to happen. Trump pressing his little button is a

A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they
shall never sit in.
“Enlightenment is man’s emergence from his self-imposed immaturity.
Immaturity is the inability to use one’s understanding without guidance
from another. This immaturity is self- imposed when its cause lies not in
lack of understanding, but in lack of resolve and courage to use it without
guidance from another. Sapere Aude! ‘Have courage to use your own
understand-ing!—that is the motto of enlightenment.
