    They'll never acknowledge it. They just move on with their agenda of trying to destroy Trump.

    If the point of the thread is to show that the US economy is improving under Trump while other major economies are sinking, that is a proven fact.
    The Fed either deliberately or accidentally almost sank the US economy by raising interest rates to fast while unwinding their balance sheet. So the US economy can be sunk by the Fed, I'm not doing a touchdown dance yet.

    If Trump can sink the world economy, then Trump is a very powerful man. If Trump can sink the world economy, then it should make the Demon-crat's shake in their penny loafers, because they are next to be sunk or they are currently sinking because of Trump.

    So which is it ? Is Trump this very powerful man or is he the buffoon idiot that the demorats like labeling him as ? I wish the Demon-crat's would make up their minds already. LOL.

    Interest rates needed to be raised. No need to keep them low so Trump economy looks on fire when its not in reality. That is due to a recession is coming.

    It could be a recession coming, or a soft landing.....I'm hoping for the soft landing. A recession is two quarters of negative growth. No one currently sees that coming, unless the Fed keeps raising interest rates too fast.

    Ed, if you ARE 82, I'm surprised you name call-should not be in your generational nature. If you are sinking, please tell us. Personally, I am better off with Trump, than any other president including Reagan.
