People I talk to are supportive of his tax cuts while some caution about the limits on deduction which can affect some people. His push to work on reforming immigration is a big topic. The democrats really lost public support because of their open borders support.

Trump's DACA comments even have the support of many legal immigrants who believes Trump is doing the right thing with getting congress to act on it and on the H-1B issues.

Trump is taking care of business and the only thing MSM can do is spread fake news about negative polls they collect from lazy moms sitting at home.



Not sure where you are finding that particular group, but they must wear white sheets and burn crosses.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders just introduced a video of Trump talking about tax cuts and how some are getting $1,000 bonuses too.

Apparently, he doesn't want to take questions.

Then she announced that Trump wants to make sure that information is accurate before it goes out to the public.

Said it with a straight face too.

There's also a positive correlation between the number of people drowning in pools and the number of Nicholas Cage films made in a year.

There's a positive correlation between the divorce rate in Maine and the U.S. per capita consumption of margarine.

There's a positive correlation between U.S. Crude Oil imports from Norway and driver fatalities from train collisions.

In other words, what matters is causation, not correlation. In reality, a company's stock price will often go up on reports of mass layoffs, which are negative economic impacts.

She is either making at least 250k a year or she's an idiot.

It doesn't make her stupid or wrong either. She seems smarter than many-she at least figured out that Obama did nothing to help the middle class.

Stock market was going great guns until the crash about a decade ago.

We were still under the economy set by the Obama administration last year. I mean, from this point forward, I guess you could call it a Trump success, but last year was still Obama.

Same as Obama's first year was Bush Jr.

That's just how it works.

None of that in isolation is that bad, but this is who we want to present to the world as representing us. That's simply revolting. He's a walking, talking, tweeting, small handed, cheeto colored disgrace. Mildly entertaining when he only affected himself, disturbing as our leader.
I disagree re: Hillary being worse, but I do agree that she has her own baggage that would have been cause for at least some degree of concern.

The rest of your post I agree with completely.

the *economy* is something totally different than the stock market. Encouraging those firms to hire people and pay them higher wages, that's something totally different and far more challenging.
But, it's not something most conservative retirees care about, so...
