Trump hasn't had much to do with it since it was already going down when he got into office. Can we blame trump for the low paying jobs and all the people on food stamps too? Or does that not fit the narrative?

Right before trump took office he claimed real unemployment was not under 5 percent but 40 percent. If we take him at his word American employment has not this bad since 1929.

Which trump do we listen to?

Smart economic policy that saw food stamp participation reach all time highs and stay close to it 8 years after the crash? Or the policy that bailed out his buddies and brought us low paying jobs?

Well, I suppose we should all be thankful that his ignorance and hate-driven insane ideas have yet to be implemented because he's also a complete moron who is incapable of getting anything done.

So, bravo for Trump on his utter lack of competence?

Typical repub talking points that are both silly and only work for the ill informed. But since Donny campaigned on making MAGA I am sure these will be problems that will quickly go away right?

No I'm not "saying" that, the facts are proving that.
Bookmark what and why? Trying to sound clever while making a vapid post doesn't really work well.

Because Trump is not responsible. Low unemployment is part of the business cycle. Short term interest rates are already inching up. If inflation picks up because of wage push, interest rates will rise further. Once the treasury yield curve flattens out, hold onto your hats.

Because the factors that created this did not occur under him.

I don't believe anything issued by the media. For the first time in 8 years I have started seeing Help Wanted signs in store fronts. Please note that the Dept of Labor is a government agency need I say more on that subject but also note the chart left off in January 2017 when Trump took office on the 20th. That being said anyone that is basing Trumps performance during 10 days in January is a nut case.
