Foreign purchases of U.S. homes had their biggest drop ever, bringing relief to waves of American house hunters who have struggled to compete in affluent neighborhoods with wealthy buyers from abroad.

Purchases by international buyers totaled $121 billion in the fiscal year ended in March, down from $153 billion the previous year, according to a survey by the National Association of Realtors released Thursday. That 21% decline was the largest on record, the NAR said.

Trump is really kicking ass there. I feel like liberal policies sell America down the river. While Republicans make America stronger.

TBH, the mainstream Republicans are no friends of working people either. The Democrats abandoned the working people in favor of tranny bathrooms.

It's only Trump who has stepped outside of both parties.

There is NO friend or foe of the sheeple from the elites. Trump, as well as Obama, Bush, Clinton are all executors of US global strategy representing the interest of the elietes. The goal is about control, both domestic and foreign. Clinton, Bush, Obama is about blowing bubbles and let the world borrow to over produce and Trump is to tighten it up. If not Trump, somebody else would achieve the same goal maybe using different means. Trump understands where the vote is and how people feel after the Clinton, Bush and Obama years, so he used it to achieve what needs to be done with the voters thinking he actually represents them or risking himself out for them. The end result is that US would take a lot less damage than the rest of the world economically. (Farmers are proudly taking the hit for Trump while they think Trump is taking the hit for the country). If that goal is NOT achieved, war. Trump is executing the last phase of the script.

It's like what Lewis black said: 'What is worse than a Democrat or a Republican?"
'It's when these assholes work together!"

So true. Neither of the parties have ever thought of giving a huge tax cut that almost all goes to benefit the wealthy before. Defiantly out of the box. Oh wait, I forgot. That's been done multiple times and has been the republican platform for 40 years

Never mind.

Members of the audience are not allowed to see the script. They just have to see how the show unfolds. Political theater.

That's because the wealthy are the ones PAYING the majority of the taxes in the country.

Should we give additional tax breaks to the people paying ZERO taxes now?

Duh...

If you are too poor to pay taxes, you should get a 100% tax cut.

The wealthy own almost all the assets. The wealthy derive enormous benefits from government. Duh.

We should p ay down the debt during a booming economy, not borrow more. Simple enough. Duh.

What happened to Ryan and Mcconnel crying debt and the deficit are the biggest problems facing the country. Duh.

Sure, how are you going to get the bottom 50% who use all the infrastructure and pay ZERO taxes now to support it, to pay their fair share, so the government doesn't have to.... duh...

You were making sense for the first few sentences.

If what goal is not achieved ?

And war with whom .

He gave a tax cut so that people would get back more of THEIR OWN MONEY. Once again, IT'S THEIR MONEY.

Zero? They don't pay sales tax, property tax (including renters), state taxes, tax on airline tickets, cable, telephone, gas, tarrifs/excise/customs on any imported goods they buy, the corporate income tax with goods they buy, fees, tolls, etc., etc., etc.

So riddle me this, What is the biggest item causing federal debt? Military. Whoops, that's not freeloaders infrastructure is it? More than double medicare and medicaid put together. The biggest use of the military? Protecting US corporate interests around the world.

It's clearly time to repeal LIBBY! CUNT! CRIMES! AGAINST! FREEDOM! that would prevent hero capitalists from arriving at any USA! airport with bags of cash to trade in real estate.

MONEY! LAUNDERING! is an imaginary LIBBY! CUNT! "crime" designed to suppress honest trade, because LIBBY! CUNTS! hate FREEDOM!

There is no place in the bible or the CONSTITUTION! that says a fugitive PRC Army officer isn't entitled to buy any number of properties, cities or states if those purchases are of interest to his investment objectives.

Imagine how much more valuable Stockton would be if an enterprising PRC Army officer and his enterprising friends could flip it six times and, meanwhile. stuff the city council with PATRIOT!s who would inflict head shots to local undesirables that are inconvenient to their investment objectives?

WIN!-WIN!

If it wasn't for the US Military, we could laugh our asses off while German, French, and Italian soldiers were deployed worldwide and second-guessed at every turn.

"Oh, those Europeans, such imperialists, deploying to yet another Middle Eastern Country."
"Sgt. Bruno Cipiano was a racist for accidentally shooting that Houthi. Bad Italians! Very Racist! Blood on their hands!"

(/sarcastic)

Also, it would give us a huge comparative advantage, Europe not the US would have all the military spending they couldn't use to compete economically with us.
