And yet the economic numbers are still very good.

And Democrats here are basically begging for a recession so Trump will lose in 2020. This is not "me me, screw anyone else" mentality this is "burn down everything, screw everyone, including me, because I have a terminal case of TDS"

I don't know who "King Cheetos" is, but by ever measure working class Americans are doing better under Trump.

In fact, the lowest wage earners are seeing some of the highest wage growth.

But hey, lets not let the facts get in the way of your ridiculous smears.

Au contraire

More and more Americans are losing health insurance each day. Any American reliant on the stock market is hurting.

Housing is down or stable at best. Car sales are down. Durable goods sales are down...or, at best, stable.

But make no mistake about it. This is an intentionally created crisis - created by Orange Man. Things were continuing to get better and better and if Trump did nothing except let others run the ship we'd be in much better shape.

Chaos doesn't work as a management style.

The media has been blasting non-stop even before Trump took office that the economy is going to take a downturn due to Trump. All this propaganda of course is going to have some people "worried the economy is getting worse and not better".

A hard rain is going to fall in certain places. Not everywhere......hopefully, unless the dominos fall (if Trump policies result in the dollar ending its reign, etc.)......

Don't you wonder what it would have done if it didn't have all this instability caused by his chaotic approach to negotiations. I do.

In May of 2017 the New NAFTA was ready to be signed...It was all agreed to. At the last minute Pence called for a change in the schedule for re-evaluation and refused to sign.

For a year and a bit Trump huffed and puffed and claimed to be protecting the USA. Eventually an agreement with Mexico and then Canada....basically the same agreement from May of 2017 WITHOUT the change in the schedule. During that year -- the stock market reacted to trade rants from Trump --- up and down...wonder if it would have just gone up if he had signed it, stopped hurling insults at allies.


THe Dow has gone up 35% so you have done well -January 21 2017 - to today- congrats.

Wisconsin leads the nation in family farm bankruptcies.

https://www.tmj4.com/news/local-news...m-bankruptcies


"According to 24/7 Wall St., bankruptcies have soared this year: "In the first seven months of 2019, nearly 43,000 workers lost their jobs when the companies they worked for filed for bankruptcy. That’s higher than the full-year total for any year since 2009."

https://www.usatoday.com/story/money...ates/39943957/

Texas isn't the only state bracing for bankruptcies.
