    If folks lay off the Democrat Fake News, they'll quickly realize that it isn't all Gloom & Doom. There's lots of great things going on. Trump and America are doing fine. :thup:


    The numbers: The trade deficit in goods narrowed 10.3% to $68 billion, according to the government’s advanced report released Thursday. This was the first narrowing of the deficit in seven months and came in well below the $73.4 billion estimate of economists polled by MarketWatch...

    U.S. trade deficit in goods drops in March for first time in seven months

    There is a whopping big amount of good news to be had, but the MSM will barely cover it, if at all, if it confirms the President's agenda in any way. And that is hateful and harmful to us all.

    Chances are there will be a similar decrease in consumer spending, which is not good news for our economy.

    We also had record high petroleum exports.

    We will have to wait till those numbers come out to find out.

    We also had record high petroleum exports, so that was part of the turn around also. Not sure how that affects the economy as a whole
