    trump has such a visceral reaction to anything linked to Obama that he recklessly pulled out of the TPP isolating the US giving China an open field to play in. Instead the US consumer and businesses are being taxed in a catastrophicly failed effort to get China to agree to a fraction of the demands TPP would have obliged them to anyway. As these developments mount a consequential disastrous effect on the economy looms which will be well beyond the grasp of the stable genius to manage let alone control.

    Trump has taken credit for the economy Obama handed him, even took credit in Pennsylvania for what Obama accomplished there in his rally and the crowd just sat there stone faced.

    Israel not excepting a representative of the US because she is Muslim is outrageous and because of their Prejudice behaviour we should no longer stand with Israel , if they cannot except all our leaders ! And to have or President Promote Israel to do it is even worse ! When and where can the American people that are sick of this and wants to Stand up in protest together join and stop this ! How long can the people WAIT ! Donald Trump thinks like Putin !

    Still waiting for the republican trickle down effects once again, didn’t happen with Bush Jr. And it’s not happening again with Trump.

    What will it take to impeach him? How much more can the U.S. endure? And IF he is ousted, Pence will take his place…Dumb&Dumber. Help!!!

    Right now, the Chinese are handling the situation rationally and are winning the first round of diplomatic play.

    I remember a long time hearing that there was this document called the Constitution and it said that Congress made tariffs, not the president. Whatever happened to that document? Someone must have heard about it besides me. If only we could find a copy and tell the president he can’t make tariffs willy nilly.
    Actually, the Democrats won’t protest because they want Trump to cause a recession so they can get elected and the Republicans are afraid to make him mad. Everyone has abandoned the Constitution for a higher cause I guess.

    Make up your mind MSNBC, Did Donald Trump legitimately win his presidency or did Russia got him in?

      It’s clear to anyone with a fkn brain that he benefitted from Russian election meddling. Keep your head buried in the sand until you die of suffocation.

    recessions, as we have it today, are nothing more than the result of 99% of profit (growth) going to the top 1% – obviously, no “economic” system can be sustained under those conditions. However, we have also to understand that money is now only backed by hard labor, and nothing else. So, by the very need of the 15 to retain their wealth, recessions assure more labor a lower wages. And the pattern has been clear for a long, long time.

    As Joe Biden said,the moron has inherited everything in his life and squandered it. Same way he inherited a good economy from Obama and he is in the verge of squandering it too.

    The Chinese Communist Party restricted all civilian air traffic in Hong Kong. What do you expect?
    This is the prelude to a conventional war. End all business with China.
    Build industries in South America, and deal with with our southern allies instead.

    Trump doesn’t understand that a terrific plan can be a terrible plan if only one aspect is wrong. His terrific plan to go against China and Europe has but one flaw – if the world economy contracts, everyone loses. He does not understand or he does not care that this one flaw means that his entire “master plan” is crap.

    The human wrecking ball Trump and his merry band of incompetents have deftly maneuvered us into an economic cul-de-sac, leaving the Fed to do Trump’s dirty work at a time when it was already going to be challenged anyway. We are going to pay a very high price for allowing absolutely inept and delusional people to lead our nation down the road they are clearly taking us. This will not end well.

    When the economy goes into recession he will blame it on Obama and illegal migrants. Nothing new to see here, move on!

    If it takes a recession to throw this guy and the GOP out of the WH and the senate, then we in Germany will gladly live through it.

    Correct me if I am wrong but did 45 start all this mess. But now he blaming everybody else for his failure. I keep telling his supporters that he would not take responsibility for notting. He would probably blame McCain if he was still alive.

    In the nineties he went bust, now he is poised to bankrupt America. 😑

    And that stupid twitter pic of him fits the stupid nonsense he types with his tiny fingers.

    Trump can’t afford a recession now. If he loses the next election he will go to jail. China knows this. They know they hold all the cards now.
    Donald Trump will only become more and more desperate for a new trade deal. So if the Chinese just wait a little, then Donald Trump will give them a great new trade deal. A trade deal that is better for the Chinese.

    Trump acts and and speaks exactly like a worshiped Televangelist you see on tv with their devoted followers blindly obeying their every word. SICK!!!!

    You do not have to read Clausewitz or other strategists to know that starting the war without the loyal allies and with no plan at all is plain stupid. That is what old fat orange moron did.

    Why arent “WE the people ” taking to the streets and demanding he step down , and resign immediatey? Why is he being allowed to run for re election? for what? Wake up America. Save yourselves, noone is coming to save you. And shut down his twitter account already.

    A real leader knows how to blame himself once in awhile. Not blame everything else for his mistakes. Trump is a TERRIBLE leader who has NEVER BEEN on record for admitting his mistakes.

    Keep drinking the poisoned koolaid Trumpets. When you choke, we won’t help but will watch you and applaud.

    Trump knows his re election is tied to the economy. You can’t keep stealing people’s 401k earnings and get away with it. I see a boom coming.lol

    Donald Bone Spur is impotent when it comes to business, just check his record. He is a con man that needs his criminal cohorts (his cabinet) to make money for himself and he will leave America broke and bleeding.

    What can’t trump make a coherent speech or have a normal conversation ? Why does a 74 year old man communicate using twitter ? The recession is being caused by Trump’s tariffs.

    Note to The Donald: Markets hate uncertainty. You lobbed a gigantic random variable into the markets with your tariff gambit. You are the clueless one.
