A logical person would look at the day he was elected until today. But yes please look at the all time high ( I assume that is what you picked) to today. M
A logical person would see that the Dow was on fire before Trump took office and it continued for a year and now is basically at the same level it was a year ago.
Is that terrible? No.

(all numbers rounded/approximate)
Day he was elected - 18,000
Day he took over - 21,000
So you are right - it was on fire from when he was elected.
The year before he was elected - 18,000 (18k to 18k - flat)
The year before that - 17,000 (6% increase)
No fire until he was elected.
