Within moments of Donald Trump’s upset victory in the 2016 election, investors began stampeding into the shares of America’s steelmakers. After all, this was a business he had explicitly pledged to rescue. “Your steel industry—we’re bringing it back, bringing it back, folks!” he had promised a wildly cheering crowd in Pittsburgh the previous April. So when trading opened the morning after election day, the buy orders were stacked high and prices began to rocket. By week’s end the S&P 500 was up 2%, but Steel Dynamics was up 13%, Nucor up 14%, Pittsburgh’s own U.S. Steel up 23%. For a Rust Belt industry in distress, deliverance had apparently come.

Fortune is now off my reading list along with other MSM rubbish.
I hope they fold.
Every silver lining has a dark cloud, doesn’t it, Geoff?
Lowest unemployment, best stock market in years with a commercial construction boom and Trump is bad for business?
What are these people smoking?
If this present economy is bad for business, I’ll take a double helping of whatever the President is passing out.
This bloviating economist blivets are actually insane.
They know little of the growth potential of our country
and its exponential patterns.
Business in the USA is not defined but what Hedge Fund billionaires want.
Your article demonstrates an almost total lack of any real competence on this topic. Stop lying and simply admit what you are really arguing. Trump is bad for the globalist outsource gods your sort have been worshiping for the last 30 years. What some people have called “the cheap labor express to economic hell”
The fact of the matter is the US People are winning and the billionaire hedge fund mangers are losing for a change
It's a Middle-Class Boom
Bad for the people who made multi billions of dollars outsourcing every possible job for the last 30 years is what they are actually whining about.
Cramer: Like or hate Trump, ‘these are the best numbers of our lives’ on jobs

CNBC’s Jim Cramer said Friday no matter your view on President Donald Trump there’s no denying we’re living in the best labor market in more than a generation.
“You can’t contradict that these are the best numbers of our lives. You can’t,” Cramer, 64, said following the government report showing the U.S. economy created a better-than-expected 266,000 nonfarm jobs in November, with the unemployment rate dipping to 3.5%, matching a 50-year low. Economists had expected the jobless rate to hold steady at 3.6% last month.
“People don’t want to say good things” about the economy, said Cramer, echoing comments he made Thursday evening on “Mad Money,” telling investors: “Don’t let the armageddonists and the negativists and the hucksters scare you away from owning stocks.”
Referring to Trump, Cramer said Friday on “Squawk Box,” shortly after the jobs report was released, “It doesn’t matter whether you hate him or like him, these are real numbers.”
“This is the best number I’ve ever seen in my life,” Cramer said, zeroing in on the unemployment rate. “Fifty years ago, that number was a curse. Now it’s a blessing.” He added, “I don’t see inflation. I don’t see recession.”

Wtf is this dude smoking ??
President Trump upset their status quo and they want to go back to the way it was and to hell with American jobs, American security, and American prosperity.
These cretins don't care at all about what is good for the country in the near or long term.
business as usual.
“Fortune” mag rag is a fake. It poses as a financial magazine, but actually promotes a leftist agenda.
So 3 years of Peace and prosperity for all Americans sure does suck. Employment at the highest levels. Wages at the highest levels. Stock market at the highest levels. Military losses at the lowest levels. What a nightmare. One thing we can’t stand is peace and prosperity.
Geoff Colvin is another elite left loser in America.
