Data from the Officers Down Memorial Page, which tracks law enforcement officer fatalities in real time, illustrates the point. During the Reagan years, for instance, an average of 101 police officers were intentionally killed each year. Under George H.W. Bush that number fell to 90. It fell further, to 81 deaths per year, under Bill Clinton, and to 72 deaths per year under George W. Bush.
Under Obama, the average number of police intentionally killed each year has fallen to its lowest level yet — an average of 62 deaths annually through 2015. If you include the 2016 police officer shootings year-to-date and project it out to a full year, that average of 62 deaths doesn't change.
Everyone watched the same speech, yet the liberal media are all spinning the same line, as if they are following instructions - trying to say that Trump painted a dark picture of the country, etc.
This country IS heading down a dark path. Trump sees it and he says it like it is. No sugar-coating.
U.S. stocks closed at record highs after trading within a narrow range Wednesday, buoyed by a surge in tech stocks after a flurry of corporate earnings beat lowered expectations.
WASHINGTON—Sales of previously owned homes rose to their strongest pace in nearly a decade in June, buoyed by low mortgage rates and an improving economy. The pace of existing home sales increased 1.1% last month from May to a seasonally adjusted rate of 5.57 million, the National Association of Realtors said Thursday. That puts them at their highest level since February 2007.
Seven years after the financial crisis, the US economy has rebounded: output has surpassed it's pre-crisis peak by 10%;, robust private sector employment gains have sharply reduced unemployment, fiscal sustainability has been largely restored and corporate profits are high.
During its election-year review of the president's campaign promises, Politifact labelled the infrastructure bank a "broken promise". Though that's not Obama's fault. It's Congress's fault. Only Congress can approve the creation of such an entity, much less authorize $21 billion in spending. And besides one fit of generosity in 2009, they've been reticent to do so since.
