    The economy was already on an upswing when Trump took office & the wealthy knew he would take care of them, so it's only logical that the market would rise too.
    I think the people at the Brookings Institution which is a 100 year old bipartisan research group would disagree with you about Trump's supposed economic success.

    You are just not being honest with yourself. Taking money from one group of people and giving to others makes both lazy. No good will ever come from such ideas.

    Might want to check your numbers... there is an estimate to hit 4.1% for this quarter, but so far GDP growth rates are lower under Trump than Obamas second term.

    The thing is as long as Trump is tough on Muslim and Mexican immigration, as long as he doesn't support things like affirmative action, as long as he pretends to be pro life, he will have the support of a certain segment of the population, including many who frequent ARP. The economy, which is usually a big issue in an election is actually not as big a deal to many Trump supporters. Lets see if his trade war effects the economy. Trump was not wrong when he said he could shoot someone on fifth avenue and his supporters would still vote for him.

    Few more years... Trump is slowly losing some of his base...... who knows how things will be in 2020.... This trade thing... more scandals..... COLLUSION...

    More young voters... more young hispanic and black voters....

    He keeps hitting at Ocare... Lot of Trump voters on Ocare and I think that they may have figured out that there is no grand replacement plan for it..... just nothing...... lol

    He will always maintain some support..... but for a lot of Trump voters I would say they are getting tired of all the bullsh*t.. all the empty promises...... Tired of having been told how great something is going to be only to find out days later that he was just flat out lying to get the crowd at a rally going......

    If you call what BHO had done with the economy good...
    Your expectations are pretty small!

    The BEST BHO ever did... was 2% growth in GDP...
    And BHO even said that was the new normal...

    Then Trump comes along...
    And we may well best 4% GDP growth...

    Numbers do not lie...
    And Brookings is political...
    Sorry... yet again, a lefties dog just will not hunt...

    MeThinks someone has been listening to (and worse, believing)
    MSM (fake) news!

    Somehow you don't respond to post 29 that shows your GDP growth expectations are so far just fantasy?

    So basically you just admitted that Obama economy was fine, but you didn't want it to be... sounds rather un-American of you.

    No...

    DavidA tried... as he always does... to spin the facts...
    DavidA thinks that is cool...

    The numbers do not lie DavidA...

    Trump's GDP numbers are much better than BHO's...

    Face it... your leftie hero was a looser!

    1. Obama isn't my hero

    2. I provided a link showing GDP numbers under Trump are pretty much identical to Obama's second term... where is your proof? Remember, documentable proof or it's fake news!

    I get it, you guys don't like Obama, so you want literally everything he did to be a failure. But life isn't black and white. There are good and bad aspects of both Obama and Trump. And one thing that was good under Obama was the broad economic recovery. There are a lot of numbers to back this up, of which I have provided many on ARP. Post 29 is just one such link.

    I'm not sure whether Obama really did a good or bad job with the economy but i do know we were going down the crapper when he took office.
    Then Trump comes along...
    And we may well best 4% GDP growth...

    That's right, but some people have a problem getting their numbers right & understanding them too.

    And Brookings is political...
    Sorry... yet again, a lefties dog just will not hunt...
    I'm sure Brookings seems political to you because they debunked the false claims of your el duce Trump with numbers that don't lie.
    My dog is only hunting for the truth.
