    Unreconstructed pretty solidly nailed it, but who's paying attention to such mundane things as real facts and comparisons? MAGA? What a laugh.

    The market has tanked this week and is flat for the entire year. The yield curve just inverted. Forecasters are revising GDP predictions for 2018 downward and beginning to talk about a recession by the first half of 2020. Real wage growth is stagnant and inflation is kicking in. There's no evidence the tax cuts generated any meaningful stimulus for the middle class. The deficit is up sharply. We're in a completely avoidable trade war that is raising prices and impacting American businesses. OPEC just announced it is reducing output, which will increase fuel prices and cause ripple effects through the economy. The job growth for Trump's first 23 months has been slower than Obama's last 23 months.

    But by all means, please ignore the data and point the finger at the Dems.

    You might want to go see what your 401(k) or IRA has done since October, 2018. Let me know how rocked you are.

    Dear Leader's economy is built on the shoulders of the Obama economy. Your acting like on November 7, 2016 we were sleeping on the street and standing in soup lines waiting for a bowl of tepid chicken broth.

    I really hope Obama's economy can survive Trump's slash and burn mentality.

    It is as if Trump is doing everything he can to destroy our great nation.
