What's that plummeting sound coming from Wall Street?

Dems are so partisan that they side with an authoritarian foreign nation like China over their fellow citizens and nation.


Dems are literally fifth columnists among us who are enemies of the nation.
Wrong, Donald Trump is the enemy of our nation.

I call him "Putin's Puppet", because he loves Putin more than he loves American democracy.

He also declared that he was in love with Kim Jong-Un. Add King Salman and Chairman Xi to his list of besties. Sometimes I think he s deliberately trying to ruin America. It must be an act; no one could be as stupid as Donald seems to be.

He often walked out when I was in mid-sentence. I find it very difficult to imagine he will be able to focus long enough to function properly on complicated issues as President"

I did not think much of this at all at the time because I figured the entire nomination was a joke and Ashton Kutcher would star in a breaking news on every channel to say "Punk'd" at any moment.

Now that the nightmare has come true, I look back on that interview. You gotta wonder if he is even able to listen, absorb, analyze, and create his own thoughts. That's a whole lot of focus for someone with severe ADHD. My hubby is like this so I get it, and this is not a cut down to Tr***


On a side note, I used to call Tr*** "President It". Someone was upset with me and I promised that I would not call him names anymore, but that I refused to fill the room with the negative energy of his name, so I came up with Tr***. You and others call him names all the time, as well as calling names to his supporters, and no one gets mad. What gives?!?!?
Personally, I think calling people names can actually come back and reflect the intelligence of the poster because it can look childish. Back in 2016, I was angry toward Hillary Clinton and her ridiculous email scandal so I kept calling her "Villary". Someone rightly called me out on it because it does get annoying after a while.

All of you who think we can continue to purchase more than 4x the goods from China that they do from us, need to watch this video. Older video, same premise. See the forest through the trees.
This is not about which party you prefer, this is all about the money. We will be better off using our tariff money on Chinese imports to subsidize farmers and continue to reclaim our manufacturing base than continuing down the path of the last 3 decades.

Agreed, and I did not mind changing my tune. Just trying to figure out why I am the only one that person was mad at (can't remember who it was)

Some are funny though.

Great day for insider trading.

It's a good bet that Carl Icahn is making a killing off of Trump manipulating the stock market.

I remember that commercial; fanciful and hyperbolic, to say the least - but cleverly crafted. But here's the thing. From the perspective of world-history and the general betterment of the human condition, for ossified empires to fail and to be supplanted by newcomers, is a feature - not a bug. We should welcome it.

Immediately our stock market fell from being up 300 to be down 200, and bonds flew on the idea of a weaker economy here in the US as prices for goods go up.


How did this guy ever get the title of being a deal maker? Did he invent it himself to go along with his "I am really , really smart?"


Maybe no. Americans are going to suffer more and more until we get this jerk out of office. Today is just another example of the lack of leadership, strategy and direction from the guy in Washington.
My consumer spending will be decreasing immediately. Anyone else? Economic contractors will result in a depressed economy.


Thanks Trump.

I give Dumpster Fire Bozo the Clown about 48 hours before he rolls onto his belly and offers to service Jinping, and Wall Street will give him a little pat on the head.
