Trump has brought us much greater peace and prosperity than any other president in decades

No matter what you think of Trump the person, he has so far led us to much greater peace and prosperity than we had before him.

* No new wars. In fact, Trump has been extricating our military from unwise incursions, in Syria, for example
* Record stock market highs
* Tax cuts for the large majority of US citizens
* Dramatic increase in US manufacturing jobs
* The economy has achieved the longest positive job-growth streak ever
* Black unemployment at record low
* Overall unemployment lowest in nearly 50 years
* Repealed Obamacare mandate for the self-employed to pay private insurers whatever they demand
* Greatly improved relations between US and N. Korea, and N. and S. Korea too
* Confronted China and other countries about unfair trade deals which were sucking jobs out of the US
* ISIS-held territory wiped out
* Signed executive order requiring universities to protect free speech on campus or lose federal funding
* Signed order requiring hospitals to publish price lists

None of these are even debatable. They are objective facts.

Trump is following the best possible plan. 1st) cut taxes and let the economy roar 2) push to end wars 3) cut unnecessary waste.

Trump has a lot of work to do on part 3. Maybe stop trying to commit treason and let the man work?

Instead of calling him racist, remind him to decrease govt spending. OR just sit there and scream racist while trying to negate the democratic process all in the name of team game politics.

https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/04/09/nolte-trump-job-approval-jumps-to-53-seven-points-higher-than-obama/

President Trump’s job approval ratings currently sits at a robust 53 percent, a full seven points higher than Barack Obama at this same point his presidency.
Robust how?

His approval rating has been reported by all the other media at 37%, a 3% slide since the Mueller report.

Try a robust search engine.

https://www.newsweek.com/trump-approval-rating-lowest-2019-following-mueller-report-release-1402137

Also you might see that the investigation netted a profit and cost nothing to perform. You don’t mind the 20 million spent on investigating Clinton do you? That was 4 years and nothing came of it at all.

53% wow.

Also, if the economy is "booming" why is the 2018 deficit is barely less than deficits when the recession was at it's worst ?

Why is it that when you look at all the graphs it just looks like a continuation of all the 6 year trends that Obama established ?

Also, if the economy is "booming" why is the 2018 deficit is barely less than deficits when the recession was at it's worst ?

I get it that republicans don't worry about deficits when republicans are President, but this is by far the most unprecedented aspect of our current economy.

I wonder why the scariest objective fact of them all doesn't bother you at all ?

These all are valid points...deficit will not matter until it matters a lot and we are in a depression.

Debt is slavery for entities that don't control the printing presses of the world's reserve currency. We hit ~100% of GDP under Obama, not Trump.

Yes. What was happening with our econoy in late 2008 through mid 2010 ?

Yeah yeah, I know. TYpical liberal blame the economy coming in, by citing obvious facts.

Running a trillion dollar deficit in 2009 or 2010 is a world of difference to running a trillion dollar deficit in 2018.

SO we agree on something

Run the deficit up up up, and then put a socialist in there right before the whole thing breaks, and saqy "see, I told you socialism doesn't work."

OF course in this case socilism means things like publicly funded health care and education.

There was no talk of deficits when Obama introduced Socialized Private Mandatory Health Insurance, or Shovel-ready programs that weren't shovel ready.

The Media began to talk of Deficits literally the day Trump won the Presidency,

Total BS. THere was plenty of talk about deficits. The ddults were in charge back then. Obama would have done more in the way of stimulus but for concern about deficits.

To me the economics discussion back then felt nonpartisan compared to now. We were in the midst of what people thought might be great depression 2.0. It was discussed plenty, becasue of the deficit hawks.

The amazing thing is those deficit hawks were nowhere to be found when Trump wanted to blow up the deficit with tax gifts to the wealthy and corporations. And yes, of course many democrats point out the hypocrisy, and that this is the cost of our current economy.

To say the media talks about it a lot is a joke. It's not talked about nearly to the extent it should be.

Yet before Trump won, in May of 2016, when it was "Inevitable" that Hillary would win, he wrote that Deficits were unimportant and Public Spending should not only continue but expand:

And there's plenty more examples here:

Krugman and the Demo Talking heads are 110% Deficit Doves when the Dems are in Power. But scream bloody murder when Republicans plot a tax cut, citing Deficits.

Funny, I didn't think it was democrats.

I thought it was just smart people that understood the difference between deficit spending when in recession/depression (when it's actually 100% unfuckingavoidable becasue govt spending is already set and revenues are dropping hard), versus tax cut induced deficit spending when the economy is supposedly strong for reasons other than the tax cuts.

If you read my post, I don't understand how you missed Krugman in mid 2016, when Hillary was considered by almost every talking head to be the inevitable occupant of the White House, preparing the ground for her Presidency by insisting the Deficits continue.

He made repeated remarks in 2016 to this effect.

Only as 2017 began, days before Trump entered the White House, did he start opining about Budget Deficits and why we can't afford a tax cut.

Yes, we could have used more deficit spending under Obama to get the economy back up and people working again. I feel the same applies today. I don't think the economy is particularly strong, and the median household's net wealth is far below where it stood in 2007. I'm all for infrastructure spending on the credit card. The bond market seems to be clamoring for more federal spending with long term rates dropping so much recently.

No one is. He won't be the nominee. Not tin foil hat stuff, but I think as part of this shut down the DNC is doing governor job interviews for POTUS. One of these aggressive governors is going to take Biden's spot once his medical records come out. DNC knows there is no way that dude (Biden) can beat Trump. Even if we enter a depression. They won't admit it, but Hillary falling down getting into the van was a factor in losing voters in the states she need to win. Fly over country people don't like weakness. Sure it's a stereotype, but it's mostly true.

The Dem primary field was an embarrassment of humanity. I've voted for Democrats at local and national levels. Whatever month they decide to hold the convention, it won't be Biden making the grand speech.... because he actually can't speak coherently. Haven't done enough research, but right now I think Cuomo and Pritzker are jockeying for position. I still don't think Bloomberg is out given his half billion dollar dump, much of it to his own businesses.

I'll probably be wrong, so everyone make sure to call me out when that happens.

Seems that way. But one strategy may be that Biden selects a female VP, with the idea that soon after the election is won, Biden steps down and we have the first woman, maybe even first woman of color, President. Thus, Biden is the nominee but the Dems campaign with heavy emphasis on his VP.

I think you'll be right.

I'd only add the shennanigans are just beginning. Huge push for no-standards mail-in ballots, and possibly a virtual convention using Coronavirus excuses. The former for November, the latter to have insiders pick the Nominee. Natch, the Media will cover and extol both of those tactics without a hint of criticism, which will be characterized as "insane" and "irresponsible".
