Trump supporters seem to think that Trump will win in a landslide in 2020 but I think that could be especially in jeopardy if there is a recession. While Trump and his supporters believe that his trade wars and tariffs will be good for the US economy, most economic experts disagree and predict that recession will arrive in 2019 and 2020, and that this recession could possibly be worse than the last one. Unlike this last one, this one will be primarily self-inflicted. Trump and his supporters will be solely to blame for it. But, we all will have to suffer. As somebody who is still struggling to get my life going after the last recession, the prospect of another one before 2020 is something of nightmares. Yet, that is where we are.

If the recession begins before the end of Trump's first term, do you think he is done? Or, are social/cultural issues more important to Americans, important enough they will vote for Trump again anyways?

I think it is funny how you are already calling something that hasn't happened the "Trump Recession".



Of course if the economy tanks before 2020 Trump will be in trouble election day.
The economy has it's natural ups and downs and by sheer timing we may be heading for another recession soon. We even have some Dems saying what we need is a recession to get Trump out. They are willing to hurt good people because they hate Trump so much.



Why would you blame Trump and his supporters if we do have a recession? We had a choice in 2016 between a gamble and a sure thing of deceit, corruption, scandal and back door dealings and the way I see it with Trump we had a chance.

I couldn't imagine what America would look like today if the far Left had their way with her.

The difference is with Trump the media pounds on everything he does but if Hillary was President they would be reporting, highlighting and hyping the positives while downplaying and ignoring the negatives while we continued down that one way road to ruin.

Um, breaking news, ladies and gentlemen: There is no Trump recession.

None.

People are working again or are about to go back to work again. The economy's the best it's been since Reagan was in office. And, the employment rate is the lowest ever for African-Americans, for Hispanics, and for women. Businesses which left the country under a previous president are coming back to the United States under President Trump.

That hardly sounds like a recession, folks. The left-wingers, meanwhile, continue to be unhinged.

Not yet. Check back in 2019 or 2020. It's coming. The US economy is like an ocean liner. It takes time to change course. Recessions are typically rooted in economic policy years prior to when they arrive.

What are you doing; watching too much Bill Maher lately? Have you thought about switching to 'real news'?

Recessions end. We are heading to something more permanent.

Would those be the same experts that gave Hillary 98% odds to win in '16? That predicted that the economy would collapse as soon as Trump was elected? That screech about "Russian Hacking" with no evidence to support anyone from Trump's campaign being involved?

Lets face it-left-wing "experts" don't exactly have a lot of credibility any longer.

Liberals are praying for a recession. Sad.

Title is misleading as you are predicting something that I don't see coming at this time. I will vote for whoever I feel can make this country better for myself and others - but with the policies the Democrats are pushing - I'll probably still end up voting Republican or 3rd party.

I'm not a fan of Trump. There is no recession yet. There might not be a recession prior to 2020 either. Sure, there may (or may not) be economic indicators of a coming recession, but until there IS an actual recession, we can't say we are in a Trump Recession.

For example, GDP is mostly in line with the mean GDP over the last 9 years. If GDP is a measure of a recession, then whatever we assign to Trump's economy applies to Obama's economy.
