Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) denied the reality that the United States economy has been relatively stable since President Joe Biden took office over a year ago by claiming that our 401Ks miss Donald Trump. He was very mistaken.
Despite Trump’s warning that the economy would take a nosedive if Biden won the 2020 election, the economy has done the opposite. The unemployment rate remains at 3.6 percent and we are in the middle of a spectacular period of job growth. Even the stock market continues to set records, albeit with a few bumps in recent days, but nothing to really panic about since it’s really just rich people losing money anyway.
But Republicans continue to insist that the economy is in the toilet and that only Trump can save it, which is why Jordan thought he would suggest that in a short tweet about 401Ks.
Your 401k misses President Trump.

This brief claim devastatingly backfired on Jordan.

The Nasdaq Composite is the same as it was the day Biden got elected. The S&P and Dow are both up about 15% since then. Both the S&P and the Dow are higher now than they were the day Biden took office.
No, my 401K doesn’t miss Trump. Because my 401K isn’t as dumb as Jim Jordan.

My 401K is glad that I’m not a pedophile enabler who refused to blow the whistle when all those boys on the wrestling team were being molested.

Actually, I had to break into my 401k to survive because of the pandemic your idol downplayed.
Wanna write me a check for $48,000?

My 401K is smart enough to know that the stock market is higher today than when Trump left office.

I had a 401k… before Trump announced his 25% tariff on Chinese goods… which cost me my job and wiped out my retirement.

Jim Jordan continues to be one of the most useless members of Congress. His district deserves better.
