While the stock market saw its 50th record high close under President Trump, David Asman and Melissa Francis took a look back at dire predictions some observers made on Election Night 2016.
David Asman joined FOX Business Network (FBN) as an anchor in September 2007, and co-hosts After the Bell (weekdays 4-5PM/ET) with Melissa Francis.

Prior to joining FNC, Asman served as The Wall Street Journal's editorial features editor. He joined the newspaper in 1983 as an editorial writer, where he edited the Manager's Journal and the Americas columns in addition to writing editorials and over 100 articles from Latin America and elsewhere. In 1994, Asman was named senior editor for the paper's editorial page where his role was combined with administrative responsibilities.
Asman was the recipient of the 1986 Inter American Press Association's (IAPA) Tom Wallace Award for coverage of Latin America in the Americas column and he received the IAPA's 1992 & 1995 Daily Gleaner Award for his articles on free trade and Cuba and Mexico's economies. He was also editor of the book "The Wall Street Journal on Management: Adding Value Through Synergy."
Asman began his journalism career in 1978 as an assistant editor of Prospect Magazine and rose to executive editor within a year. In 1980, he was hired by George Gilder to start an economic journal for the Manhattan Institute. Asman has been a radio commentator for "Perspective on the Economy," and was a consultant to the Ford Foundation on African organizations in the United States.
