US Media Ignores ‘The Trump Bull Market’


The DJIA finished at another record high Tuesday.

  • Another batch of upbeat earnings reports
  • Top-weighted technology and financials sectors outperform
  • Crude Oil plunges following 6-session rally, weighs on energy stocks
  • Rate-hike concerns tempered a bit following disappointing June Personal Income & June Construction Spending figures

President Donald Trump tweeted Tuesday that the “mainstream media seldom mentions” that the stock market “could hit all-time high” today.

Stock Market could hit all-time high (again) 22,000 today. Was 18,000 only 6 months ago on Election Day. Mainstream media seldom mentions!

Recent coverage of Trump’s Administration has focused on his recent staff shakeups, his Tweet about transgender people in the military and the Senate healthcare vote last week.

Although many news outlets reported on the market’s performance, none of them mentioned President Trump.
