Truck sales saw record orders under the tax credits offered for business/equipment investments, sales have now dropped FROM THOSE RECORD LEVELS.
I'm not going to shed tears for shipping being down due to less Chinese crap coming into the ports.

I can drive by the BNSF inter-modal facility in Memphis and they are constantly unloading cargo trailers. My cousin who drives a big rig says that every carrier is looking for drivers. They will even pay for your driving school. All you have to do is have a clean record (criminal and driving) and pass a drug test.
Not a Trump fan, but my first reaction was something like this^. I suspect that if truck sales are down, there are multiple causes. Some of them might be good.

I don't care for Trump, and I am certain the economy has some vulnerabilities (as it always has and will), but there is no denying that commerce is strong right now. With so much wrong with this POTUS, this is really a stupid thread and a fail of a topic. Why even bother?
