Two plus years ago I started a post, apparently still up, saying Trump's policies achieved goals that liberals claim to want, despite his reputation as a nasty-right wing bully. I have a decidedly mixed record as a RE investor and economic forecaster, but got the Trump call right.
Because of his policies, the poor and minorities have benefited in some surprising ways. Blacks and Hispanics achieved the lowest unemployment rates in history under Trump up until COVID, thanks to GDP growth rates outpacing Obama's. The recent 33% quarterly growth rate, annualized, again surprised all the forecasters (who have constantly been surprised by their lower forecasts).
Generally speaking, the left wants to keep the economy shut down due to COVID. Easy to say when you can work from home and afford tutors and private schools. Lower income workers are mostly unable to do this and Trump wants to help them by opening up faster. Poorer students in K-12 are more hurt by the shutdown--advantage Trump. Foreign policy? Trump is getting Arab countries to line up with Israel against Iran--a decades-long goal of both parties. He got our NATO allies to do more for their own defense in place of the US military. Trump wants law and order vs. the riots that have devastated mostly minority neighborhoods and jobs. He wants charter schools for the poor who are forced to attend failing, teacher union-dominated inner-city schools. All this is why I predict the Black vote will double or triple for Trump, and the Hispanic vote may well double. We'll know in 48 hours.
Old saying about us economists: Often wrong, but never in doubt.
Another: He who lives by crystal ball must learn to eat crushed glass.
