On the campaign trail and in the White House, President Trump has promised to make business-friendly policies a priority through tax cuts and new government investments.

So when Trump deals a potentially good hand, Wall Street doubles down.

Since the election, some of those bets have paid off. Stocks surged weeks after the election and Trump’s inauguration in what investors have dubbed the “Trump rally.” The Dow Jones industrial average broke 20,000 points for the first time in January while the Standard & Poor’s 500-stock index and the Nasdaq composite index reported record highs.

In his first 100 days in office, Trump worked to make his business policies a reality. He rolled back Obama-era regulations and announced a preliminary plan to slash taxes, both of which have played favorably in the stock market.

However, a number of setbacks, such as Republicans failing to repeal and replace Obamacare, Trump proposing an executive order to suspend admitting refugees and ban immigrants from several Muslim-majority countries, and the rising tensions between the United States and North Korea, have set investors on edge.

The market’s steady climb in the early days of the Trump era as well as since he took office is clear in the S&P 500, which consists of 500 diverse companies listed on the New York Stock Exchange or on the Nasdaq and is considered to be a better barometer of the market than the Dow, which averages 30 companies.

Who’s winning and losing on the S&P

Who’s winning and losing on the Dow

On the losing side, Exxon Mobil and Chevron are dealing with lower oil and gas prices as the United States produces more petroleum products than any other country in the world.

But not all companies have suffered losses. Some, including Coca-Cola and Intel, have remained relatively on par since Trump’s victory.

Tweeter in chief

It’s no surprise Trump is an avid Twitter user. He’s feuded with a respected civil rights activist, shared his disdain for the media and used the platform to announce major policy decisions.

But when it comes to mentioning companies, what he says — better yet, tweets — can help or hurt them.

On Jan. 5, for example, Trump tweeted he’d threaten Toyota Motor with increased fines if it built a new plant in Mexico to manufacture the Corolla sedan and sell it to American consumers.

Despite Trump incorrectly saying the company was building a factory in Baja, Mexico, to manufacture Corollas — it was actually building a factory in Guanajuato, Mexico — trade experts told The Post it’s unlikely the White House has the power to punish companies with a border tax.

Regardless, the tweet caused Toyota’s stock to drop as Tokyo markets opened the following day.

Other companies have seen their stock values affected by Trump’s comments online, including Lockheed Martin, Ford and Nordstrom.

Nordstrom (JWN) Retail

“My daughter Ivanka has been treated so unfairly by @Nordstrom. She is a great person -- always pushing me to do the right thing! Terrible!”

Feb. 8, 2017
Stock value from Nov. 8, 2016 to April 28.

“Thank you to General Motors and Walmart for starting the big jobs push back into the U.S.!” Jan. 17, 2017

 
Toyota Motor (TM) Automobiles

“Toyota Motor said will build a new plant in Baja, Mexico, to build Corolla cars for U.S. NO WAY! Build plant in U.S. or pay big border tax.”

Jan. 5, 2017
 
Lockheed Martin (LMT) Defense

“The F-35 program and cost is out of control. Billions of dollars can and will be saved on military (and other) purchases after January 20th.” Dec. 12, 2016

“Based on the tremendous cost and cost overruns of the Lockheed Martin F-35, I have asked Boeing to price-out a comparable F-18 Super Hornet!” Dec. 22, 2016

 
Boeing (BA) Aerospace

“Boeing is building a brand new 747 Air Force One for future presidents, but costs are out of control, more than $4 billion. Cancel order!” Dec. 6, 2017

“Ford said last week that it will expand in Michigan and U.S. instead of building a BILLION dollar plant in Mexico. Thank you Ford & Fiat C!” Jan. 9, 2017

“Big announcement by Ford today. Major investment to be made in three Michigan plants. Car companies coming back to U.S. JOBS! JOBS! JOBS!” March 28, 2017
