That there IS a Trump economy is a myth. There's a CAPITALIST economy that went through a recession in 2008, but has seen dropping unemployment rates for the past 97 months--years before Trump was elected, let alone actually took office.

The economy is doing well in spite of Chapter 11 Rump, and was built on the back of the massive stimulus packages and near 0% interest rates of the Obama Presidency, both of which “conservatives” fought against tooth and nail.

That's nothing! Obama cost the U.S. over 11 trillion, millions of jobs, and our national security. We'll be paying for the Obama mistake for generations. Go Trump!

From BBC

"During his presidential campaign in 2016, Donald Trump said that Mrs Clinton's use of a private server to send official emails while in her post as secretary of state in 2009 was a scandal "bigger than Watergate".
He repeatedly criticised her conduct, calling her actions "illegal" and a threat to the security of the US.
At the time of his campaign, Mr Trump frequently encouraged crowds at rallies to chant "lock her up" and vowed to imprison Mrs Clinton over the saga.
He also called on Russia to help locate some 30,000 emails that Mrs Clinton had not turned over to investigators after she, or her lawyers, determined it was unnecessary as they were personal messages."

One wonders what pest control company will get the job of fumigating the White House after the trump gang is thrown out? LOL!

Typical response from the Righ wingmuts. Blame Obama, blame Hillary, hate liberals, blacks, Democrats, gays, the media, immigrants and everyone else while making excuses for what is the worst, most polarizing, and embarrassing presidency in history. Obama’s presidency FAR surpassed this pathetic attempt for nationalist ideals and protectionism. Trump only inspires the worst in the worst people. That’s anything but great.

Utter bulldooky.

African-Americans produce wealth equal to that of many countries. All the black people I know around here WORK.

How much are all the opioid-addicted whites costing the country? How much does the environmental damage caused by corporations cost us?

How much will it cost us when law enforcement has to deal with you when you flip out with your AK and start shooting up a black church?

Ponder THAT, bitxh.

You cannot substantiate anything you've said, white-right misfit traitor boy.

Obama in fact did quite well cleaning up the Dubya mess.

Hell Melania's weekend trips are costing us an arm and a leg. She like her husband deserves to be ushered into a prison cell.

The psychological impact on the American public alone of being relieved of the tyrannical and destructive impact of Obama showed an immediate response of actual hope and change. Just as the economy took an immediate downturn when Obama's Socialist policies were elected, once the failures of that historical failure sunk into the American perception, the promise of being relieved of that eight year malaise and intentional destruction was immediately apparent in November of 2016. There has never been a more damaging and murderous imposition on America, than the stupid Socialist concepts Democrats have been pushing for fifty years and tried to cement with Obama. The turnaround is undeniable.

In fact, white-right traitor boy, Demosocialist policies worked very well in this country from FDR to Carter. The country has declined drastically since the criminal Reagan began giving away the store to billionaires and corporations.

Obama's policies were good to the extent he could do anything with the treasonous obstructionist GOP Congress in place.

DUBYA crashed the economy, you lying snake.

Your pathetic ilk is on the way out, boy. You're now a historical footnote. Democrats are sweeping the country, and the Reign of Error ushed in by the criminal-against-humanity Reagan will be ending soon.

Now shut up so we can concentrate on watching Trumpolini lose his mind...

the fraud and manipulation of FAANG during the O years is what is in play now.

The only reason it was a success is no one had jobs for so many years.

Once the renewed failure of Democrat control of the House is seen, Americans will shove your Socialism straight up your bum.

Bush didn't do anything to the economy. The failures and conniving relationships of Democrats with international terrorists did so on 9/11/01. Idiot Democrats like to put that out of their minds. Americans eventually wake to reality... Democrat close ties with Farrakhan and anti-Israel proponents wanting to bring death to America shows us who you really are. Go fund Antifa, thug.

It was the Democrats' socialist policies that caused the 2008 Great Recession. It was them who pressured banks to lend mortgage money to people who did could never repay the loans. And when they did not in large numbers, we had an economic calamity. There were plenty of warnings trouble was coming but liberal Democrat House and Senate committee chairmen Frank and Dodd accused the Republicans of wanting to deny poor people nice houses and sabotaged all efforts to prevent the calamity.

You white-right traitors can only lie...

Obama's Administration was the cleanest since Jimmy Carter.

The JOBS disappeared into Chinese sweatshops because of Reaganomics, you rutting fool.

You delusional fascists are the greatest threat to our freedom in this country. But don't worry, MANY of us liberals and progressives are very well armed.

Democrats and Socialist Hollywood started outsourcing and passed laws guaranteeing its immunity. Hell, Democrats were the ONLY ones opposed to RICO laws. Ask yourself why once RICO was enacted, Democrats moved their thefts of the American people overseas.

What we're really having here is the return of interest.

For nearly a decade, the cost of capital was almost zero. It was necessary to maintain ANY economic growth. When the tax cuts were initiated, growth accelerated to levels not seen since before the Recession. The Fed, fearing inflation, started jacking rates. But since September, EVERY real economic indicator has been signaling that they should stop. Europe is near a recession. China is slowing. We probably will, also. Housing valuations are falling because of rising rates. Car sales are down across the board.

I hope that Xi and Trump realize that some sort of acommedation needs to be reached. We can't support the world alone any more. I think they both know it, and are kind of playing chicken. Like the Cuban crisis, who will blink first. Neither party wants the "nuclear option", the 25% tariffs.

The Fed will raise a 1/4 point in December, because it pretty much HAS to now. But when you get some good China news, things will stabilize.
