So it's far better and more moral to keep Trump, who has a couple dozen women saying he sexually harassed them. And to you that Trump had to pay off a porn star in hopes of keeping their affair secret is all out FAKE NEWS. RIGHT?

Interesting, though, how the economy usually performs better when a Democrat is president.

Good point. Trump talks like we are supposed to be against illegal immigrants because they rape, murder and steal. So which ones get in the news for getting arrested? Hundreds at work trying to contribute to society by working. I would much prefer the government go after those rapists, murderers and thieves Trump is so worried about.

But anger about gay rights is largely yesterday's news largely subsided and on the back burner. Much more important to the right is trying to ban abortion. They will eventually be in the news for targeting the self managed abortion movement or in other words, avoiding expense of abortion clinics or responding to the lack of them by using drugs at home to induce abortion.

It ZOOMED with the tax cuts and getting rid of a LOT of useless regulations that took the "handcuffs" off businesses.
What handcuffs taken off? Brick and mortar stores are going out of business, due to online commerce led by Amazon. I bought a couple of shoes 60% off at PaylessShoes before it closed.

I believe that by the election, unemployment will be skyrocketing, people will be losing their homes, and we'll see one or two big bank failures. It could be even worse if China decides to completely unload U.S. debt, a very real possibility. Most people on this board who are working will likely either be laid off or know somebody who is laid off by next year at this time.

Thing is, none of this had to happen. This is 100% on Donald Trump. Now we all are going to have to suffer.

Democrats need to start shifting the conversation to this because I believe that the collapsing economy will be their winning issue in 2020. The U.S. needs to join the rest of the world in embracing the 21st century rather than trying to bring back the middle of the 20th century, destroying itself in the process.
Ohh please.... not this same old song and dance. The economy is not growing or declining just because who’s President for the most part. If Obama grew our economy, then tell us what exact policies did he put into place to grow our economy.

I don't know .... I seem to recall a lot of "those jobs are not coming back" talk when BO was around.

But I guess it beats talking about healthcare. I don't see why there would be any need for Democrats to discuss healthcare. The ACA act remains with us as Trump failed to get it repealed. So everyone's healthcare should be just fine.

Exactly what policies did Obama/Biden put into place to grow the economy?

Nothing! That’s why Trump was elected.

Democrats cant improve the economy that’s why they’re not mentioning it. They’re platform is driven only by hate for Americans. Because with these dumbass policies they’re proposing (i.e healthcare and education for undocumented Democrats/illegal aliens) they must really hate Americans.

Whatever, they were, my town had a lot healthier economy while Obama was president from downtown to the strip malls. Also Asco Aerospace moved into a large vacant manufacturing plant. Passenger airline service after being dropped for years was reinstated. This time to Dallas. Then Trump became president and JCPenney and other stores started closing. No more new industry moved in. City sales tax revenue went down. Population growth is slowing. Blame it on Amazon and other online merchants, instead of Trump, if you want. But yes, Democrats better start talking about the economy. Trump isn't doing it much good here.
