Is that all you got, a schoolyard taunt, and about 'Hillary' too? Laughable, fact-free BS.
FYI, this bull market is just an extension of Obama's turning things around from the disastrous final few years of the Cheney-Bush clusterf---. C-B took a pfg WJC economy up a little, then sideways, then into a near-total meltdown (worldwide even). Who knows if much would change had HRC had beat the EC (+3million actual votes).
The DJIA (no BS about some other index, they all pretty well average out) went up to ~14000 before the 'Great (Bush) Recession' of 2008, which took it down under ~7,000
(more than halved, -50%) as Obama came in, 2009.
When BHO left in 2017 the DJIA stood around 21,000, up almost 200% in ~8 years, nearly doubled.
See the factual DJIA market chart graph below which spans 1999-today, quite plain to see.
So today it's around 28,868, up about 38% from the changeover 3 years ago. Which may merely mostly reflect a certain amount of artificial pumping, as hinted at previously.
