I agree. I understand the left wants to say that Trump's success is because "Obama got the ball rolling." But this is an example of them moving the goalposts to match the data. When Trump was running there was not a single Democrat who was out there saying, "You know what, even if Trump wins, it doesn't matter what he does, he can cancel all of Obama's policies on day one, by way of Executive Action, and the economy will still be strong." I didn't hear anyone saying, "Well, Trump might be a disaster, but the 8 years of Obama will lead to economic stability that will keep the nation thriving."
Nope, every expert and leftist went on TV and said, "The economy will tank if Trump is elected." Or, "The stock market will crash if Trump is elected." Or, "There is no possible way Trump can bring the type of growth and jobs he claims because those jobs don't exist." Or, "A Trump victory would destabilize the world markets and cause an economic thunderstorm never seen before..."
So, everyone agreed if Trump got into the White House and his fingers on the nukes, the markets would tank, the world's economy would be destabilized, we would be at war, and his tax plan would collapse the middle class.
Well three years later, things are thriving...so what's the excuse?
meanwhile, you're using old data instead of current. you're no different than the Obamabots.
That's the saddest thing, Obama and Trump are 99.8% the exact same President and their slaves are so desperate to fight over which was.01% less terrible.
One inherited an epic recession and the other inherited the longest economic expansion of our lifetime, thats the main difference between the two.
Of course I am fucking using old data, my point was to show the predictions (old data) have not matched the results. Hillary and the Democrats assured us that a Trump victory would mean the collapse of both the domestic and world economies. I posted several examples of such dire warnings because you asked for a source, as though I just made it all up.
Of course all the predictions were wrong. That's my point.
None of the economic catastrophies predicted by Democrats came true. Meanwhile, there has been steady job growth, unemployment % has continued to fall, there is no recession, consumer confidence has been decent and we are not in any global conflicts. Oddly, the left is now attacking Trump for refusing to engage nations in war LOL
Except that now manufacturing jobs have been disappearing for months, the DJIA has been flat for nearly two years, the GDP growth is bad, real wage gains are not high enough, the deficit is exploding, tax dollars are bailing out farmers, and the fed just had to reduce rates because of a risk of recession caused by Trumps trade war.
I asked for a source for what?
Every time you talk about the left it just makes it clear you can't defend Trump on his own merit. The left is a train wreck just like he is. Your team constantly told Americans how the sky would fall if Obama's policies were implemented. Same shit, Trump is in many ways quite left. His trade policy most closely aligns with Bernie's.
Funny thing the nasdaq is up 30% this year and the Dow up 19% YTD.
manufacturing jobs are lagging and most likely business won’t invest until trade war is settled but the economy is doing well.
BF & CM just set huge retail records.
gdp growth is solid 2%.
could it be better if USMCA and China deals were signed ... of course. and when they get signed I’m sure 3% plus will be in reach again
for some reason you want to shit on the USA economy by cherry picking certain segments. But overall it’s healthy.
unlike your mental capacity
Manufacturing growth was a hallmark of Trump's campaign, pointing out that it is in decline is relevant, not cherry-picking. Especially given jcblass pumping his chest with old manufacturing data to try to claim it was doing great.
2%GDP growth is not "solid, its what we all considered a really slow recovery under the last President.
The DOW is only up a lot YTD because it plunged in December. It was 26.6k in January 2018 and its 27.7k now.
The same story on the Nasdaq, it plunged last December. In 2018 it was 8100 and its only at 8500 now.
And as previously pointed out, the fed just had to reduce rates and the deficit is growing...
The USMCA is just a slightly tweaked NAFTA, hardly some magic bullet. Environmental and labor regulations are hardly a boom for the economy, nor are auto tariffs.
I'm not shitting on the US economy, just pointing out that the Trumpets on here are really dishonest about it. Sorry, when the fed is reducing rates to prevent a recession, GDP sucks, the market sucks, manufacturing jobs are declining, and the deficit sucks, then pretending the economy is doing great (by cherry-picking the way you did) is silly.
