As the Politifact link mentions, companies that Trump has helmed/controlled have declared bankruptcy.

Donald Trump 'a man' has never declared bankruptcy. Donald Trump has never declared personal bankruptcy, which isn't the same thing as companies he helmed/controlled having declared beankruptcy.
Of course it hasnít been personal bankruptcy. Thatís why it should be even more concerning to you and every American.

He isnít going to bankrupt himself, WE are the ones on the hook this time around.

Just stopped huh?

The tariffs had nothing to do with it? As soon as they saw Dems win a few seats the economy just got scared and packed up?

Couldnít have anything to do with tax cuts AND increased spending? Nah... a few young junior women have the power to scare off the whole US economy.

You should not be cutting interest rates and running massive deficits in a good economy.

Ain’t nothing conservative about that.

Things seem to be slowing down lately.

Yeah, unemployment has been below 4% for seventeen months and is currently 3.7%.

Wages have been outpacing inflation for all income groups with the lowest earners seeing the greatest increases.....


but apart from that!!!

It's not that simple to assess solely on either the job market or the wage rates.

Still the same ol' guy. leaving a wake of failure behind him. I'll give him this. He never looks back. He also never learns. His legacy will be the naval ship they name after him. The USS Bone Spur.
