Well whoop-tee-do. The top 5 largest 1-day declines in the Dow also occurred under Trump. So that must mean he's a failure.

I'd say the last 2, or somewhere in between. The press, the Chinese, and the dims of course have no reason to try to spin up a recession.

There are many ways to counter this.


The top 5 DOW closes ever are under Trump, so that must mean he is a success.


The DOW isnt the only market in the out there either.

Trump can cause some short term fluctuations in the market with his tariff shenanigans, but at the end of the day Presidents have little impact on the economy as a whole or in the long run. Just a convenient political lever, they all use it.

We had many ups and downs the last few years and it has little to with party except for maybe the tariffs. That response sounds rather partisan unless you can point to some specific action, sure sounds like Trump was in the right place the last 2 years and if it goes south he will cast blame on the democrats.

No matter if its the economy or whatever the left will blame Trump. Blame is the only chance they have in 2020.

For over two years it was the Russian/Trump collusion and when that fell flat it was on to racism with a mix of a fake coming recession.

No, when Obama was President, he blamed Bush.
