Re: President Trump

Black and white are just one angle on an array they are shooting to divvy people up. Muslims and them. People in the bathroom and them. Illegals and them. Sick people and them. Poor people and them. Press and them. We and them.

Those numbers are lies remember?

Top 1% own most stocks and the prediction is a downturn.

Less women and children from gang ridden countries are crossing the border, presumably staying in their own gang ridden countries perhaps to die. Not sure if that's a win or not.

It's absolutely a win to these people.

And when making a list like that, certainly don't forget "introduced a bill everyone hates to cause tens of millions to lose health insurance".

What did Trump do to create jobs in February? Bear in mind he took office just 11 days before the month started, and spent almost all of his first few weeks on everything BUT jobs. I doubt signing Muslim bans that didn't hold and ranting about Meryl Streep and crowd sizes on Twitter caused high-paying gigs to be created.

Tens of Millions? Come on man!

Those who "lose" their insurance aren't even using it in the first place because they can't afford it. They basically have an insurance card that is worth less than a Zimbabwe dollar.

He created optimism.

Business is booming, so more people are being hired because of this.

The pipeline

People are getting back into the job market after feeling hopeless under Obama.

More companies are staying in the US. More companies are coming back to the US.

How do you like all this winning?

Seems soon. As people pointed out Trump hasn't done anything that should create a stock market boom. Likewise the US has been in sustained growth for a few years and nearing capacity. AFAIK if we make it 4 more years without a downturn it'll be beyond a record. All these point to something happening soon. Maybe it doesn't happen. Maybe there really is some slack in the economy that Trump can find.

And subconsciously maybe that’s part of it. I’m not saying that. But I’m saying that if it is getting that abstract and that coded, we are doing away with the racial problem one way or the other. Obviously sitting around saying we want to cut taxes and we want this, is a lot more abstract than even the busing thing and a hell of a lot more abstract than ****** ******. So anyway you look at it, race is coming on the back burner. -Lee Atwater

Nope, wrong. According to the same jobs reports you now use to laud Trump, Obama created millions of jobs during his presidency.

Re: President Trump

lol He created optimism. Like some guy was sitting at home playing XBox until he heard Trump was President and then he pulled up his pants, tied his shoes, and decided to get a job. The magic fairy dust causation theory.

I don't like incompetent liars. Or scam artists. Or conspiracy theory fans. Remember that Trump thought Obama wasn't born in Hawaii? This is the guy you're bragging about? lol.

After voting for the first time at the age of 55, for Donald Trump, Martha Brawley is worried that the main issue that brought her to the polls, health insurance coverage, is going to become worse.

Brawley, a resident of Monroe, North Carolina, said she fears the new Republican health insurance bill will significantly raise her premiums.

"I'm 55. This is the first time in my life I voted, and I voted for Trump hoping that he would change the insurance so I could get good health care," she told ABC News. "I might as well have not voted."

She first spoke to The New York Times about her concern that she would receive thousands of dollars less in assistance, as tax credits, to help her buy health care coverage under the proposed American Health Care Act (AHCA), dubbed "Trumpcare."

Re: President Trump

Mondigimon, are you posting these things to be cited at a later time so three years from now you can quote your incorrect assessments as facts? I just don't understand. It's like you're rewriting the history books not yet written.

Curious, what should be done to create a stock market boom?

The only thing a President can do, pass legislature. But in reality Presidents, don't have much control over the economy.

It's most likely to happen within the next for years and if it doesn't then Trump will be reelected. That's how it goes.
