Seriously, the stupidity in this thread from GOP'ers and Cons is stunning. I knew they were simpletons but didn't think they would be so dumb. You guys really need to think twice before typing and exposing your lack of logic, tolerance and common sense.

One President (especially a not so smart one) is neither responsible for the economy going up OR for it to go down. It takes a lot more variables than that. Are we getting closer? Sure. It only seems logical that we are closer to the next recession considering we haven't had one in a long time. But that has nothing to do with Trump. Nor does it have anything to do with Trump when the economy is doing well.

And no Democrat or Independent is cheering for the USA's economy to go South. They have always put the country before the party. Republicans used to be that way ... when Abe was around.

Extreme Terminal TDS!

We can lose 5000 points on the DOW and still be better than when Obama left office.

Very true. Most dRATs are on the government dole and love big government "free stuff" and could care less about 401Ks.

i largely agree with this. we're kind of overdue for a recession.

Helping people buy houses they couldn't afford. Clinton and George W. Bush were both responsible.

It's always a great market for options traders. Up, down, sideways, they make money.

nancy needs the Senate to go Demonic to crash the economy again so it looks like you got no shot to stop Trump.

Yeah, they do. Just like Republicans were rooting for (and trying to cause) further economic calamity theoughout the Obama Administration. It's human nature.

If the economy tanks tomorrow, Tinyhands will get the blame. I'm not saying he'd actually be the cause... though his idiotic policies and deranged man-child behavior may push things over the tipping point.

I'm just saying that he's our Glorious Orange President. As far as public opinion is concerned, the buck stops with him, no matter how he tries ro deny it.

That's why he keeps vomiting out this panic-tweets about the Fed. It's his orange *** on the line

If the economy goes south trump will just find some one to blame,probably Democrats or Obama or the Clintons, it should be obvious by now this bum takes no responsibility for any negatives he purpetrates on the American people.

this is a stupid question. and while you thought you were thinking, i would argue your question might just prove the absence of thought...
