You’re not likely to hear this from some liberal media outlets, but to say the U.S. economy is roaring under President Donald Trump might be an understatement.

But don’t take it from me. Take it from the American public.

Gallup polling conducted between July 1 and 12 showed that 53 percent of voters said they’d rate current economic conditions in the country as “excellent” or “good,” compared with 46 percent who responded with “only fair” or “poor.”

Sixteen percent, meanwhile, chose the “excellent” option.

This represents a 3 percentage-point uptick from Gallup’s June polling, when 13 percent of voters thought the economy was doing “excellent.”

By comparison, during former President Barack Obama’s tenure, the percentage of respondents who picked “excellent” exceeded 1 percent just one time, in April 2016, when 2 percent chose that option.

In this sense, Trump has smashed Obama’s best economic polling by 800 percent.

It’s not just Gallup.

The results of a Fox News poll released Wednesday show that 51 percent of voters believe “the economy is in positive shape (excellent or good).”

In the years since Fox started asking this question, that’s the highest number to respond positively since 2001.

“The last time this many felt that way was almost two decades ago (59 percent, January 2001),” Fox reported.

For context, that was roughly eight months before 9/11 and a number of years before the economic recession of the late 2000s.

Fifty-two percent of respondents in this most recent Fox poll, meanwhile, approve of the way Trump is handling the economy, compared with 41 percent who disapprove.

“That’s just one-point off his high of 53 percent last summer, and up from 48-46 percent in May,” Fox reported.

While 46 percent of overall respondents approve of Trump’s job performance, 87 percent of Republicans believe he’s doing a good job.

Back to Gallup.

The organization’s most recent polling revealed that 67 percent of voters believe it’s a good time to find a quality job.

For comparison, just 31 percent believe it’s a bad time to look for a good job.

Democrats might not want to admit it, but Trump’s economy is on a roll.

President Donald Trump confirmed Friday that he threw convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein out of his Mar-a-Lago golf club in Palm Beach, Florida, years ago.

“I was not a fan of Jeffrey Epstein,” Trump told reporters from the South Lawn of the White House, according to CNN.

“Jeffrey Epstein was not somebody that I respected. I threw him out,” Trump added. “In fact I think the great James Patterson, who’s a member of Mar-a-Lago, made a statement yesterday, that many years ago I threw him out. I’m not a fan of Jeffrey Epstein.”

Trump may have been referring to a statement Tuesday from Patterson, author of a book about Epstein called “Filthy Rich: The Billionaire’s Sex Scandal — The Shocking True Story of Jeffrey Epstein.”

“It’s horrifying … these are girls, allegedly hundreds of girls,” Patterson told Fox News‘ “The Daily Briefing” during a discussion about the newly filed sex-trafficking charges against Epstein.

“There were some complaints about Epstein at Mar-a-Lago,” he said. “I spoke to the head of the spa there. I said, ‘Did you ever meet Epstein?’ She said, ‘Oh yes. … He was inappropriate with some of the younger women there.’”

“She said she went to Trump and he threw him out of the club,” Patterson added.

Trump confirmed much of this on Friday.

“I didn’t want anything to do with him. That was many, many years ago. It shows you one thing — that I have good taste,” he said.

Trump also encouraged journalists to look into who traveled to Epstein’s infamous private island, where he’s been accused of throwing parties and engaging in sexual relations with underage girls, as Mediaite noted.

“Now, other people, they went all over with him, they went to his island and all over the place,” Trump said.

“He was very well known in palm — his island, whatever his island was, wherever it is, I was never there. Find out the people that went to the island,” he added.

While the establishment media has attempted to tie Trump to Epstein, the president has made it clear he was not a fan of the wealthy businessman, who pleaded guilty in 2008 to solicitation of prostitution from a minor.

“I knew him like everybody in Palm Beach knew him,” Trump told reporters at the White House on Wednesday. “I had a falling out a long time ago, I’d say maybe 15 years.”

“I was not a fan of his, that I can tell you.”
