How can that be when ALL the Dems voted against this? Every Dem voted against Trump's economy.

Can you point out anything specifically that isn't accurate?

The stock market has basically stalled for 7 months. so either the stock market isn't linked with Trump's policiesat all and that means he has done nothing for us -- or if it linked -- why has it stalled.

If Trump's biggest moves to date -- corporate tax cuts and trade war -- are so absolutely AMAZING....and the economy has turnaround -- why haven't we seen any spike in anything other than the GDP.

The 4.1% was juiced by exporters shipping their products early to get ahead of retaliatory tariffs.

There is no indication that production is up, new factories built, more shifts added, ... zip.

Difficult to see how this will be sustainable.
