As Donald Trump’s bragging about the economy reached a crescendo last fall, former Obama White House communications director Jen Psaki provided a helpful reality check for the American people. “A buffoon could have kept the recovery going,” Psaki explained, “and in fact one has so far.” That Trump had inherited an Obama boom, an expansion which kept rolling into 2019, was indisputable. As the trend lines for gross domestic product, job creation, the unemployment rate, the major stock market indices, consumer confidence, median household income, and more confirmed, the American economy was on a very healthy path when Barack Obama handed over the controls to Trump on January 20, 2017.

But now, the buffoon in the Oval Office is apparently running out of luck. As predicted by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) and most observers, the small bump from the GOP’s “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act” of December 2017 was short-lived. As also forecast, the hemorrhage of red ink caused by Trump’s windfall for the wealthy will not be: In 2020 the annual budget deficit will hit $1 trillion, double the Obama-era low in 2015. Under Trump, trillion-dollar deficits will continue for the foreseeable future. Worse still, CBO and other analysts are warning that Trump’s dangerously misguided trade war with China is hitting American consumers and the U.S. economy hard. Calendar-year growth is now pegged at 2.3%; in 2020 CBO is cautioning, GDP growth will only be 1.8%. With Germany and the U.K. already entering recession territory, economists are sounding the alarm that the United States could be next.

For the 45th president of the United States, the real culprit for these worrying economic developments can be found in his own mirror. But Trump’s ego, and the entire rationale for his 2020 re-election campaign, both depend on denying that inescapable truth. So Donald Trump is doing what he does: blaming someone else for his own obvious failures. His Federal Reserve chairman, the media, and, of course, Democrats, he insists, are guilty of trying to sabotage an American economy he wrongly calls the “best ever.” As he put it on August 15:

Man, you clueless brain-dead leftard suckers will believe or say anything! Funny that there wasn't any mention ever of an "Obama boom" at any time while that floppy-eared useless bastard was actually in office! In fact, it was the day Trump stepped into the WH that the economy and DOW Jones shot up like a sky rocket! :auiqs.jpg: :auiqs.jpg: :auiqs.jpg: :auiqs.jpg: :auiqs.jpg:

So Obama was slowed and blocked by the GOP House?

Wow!

They say Trumpsters view Trump as a King but you also view Obama as the only person that had anything to do with the economy...

It take more than one person to run this country economy and if you do not know this then learn it!

Take that stroll. Obama said that "those manufacturing jobs are not coming back".
Trump is bringing them back, as many as he can, does that clarify things for you?


Interesting. Do you have any data to back that up? Obama vs Trump

The left's TDS and butthurt has reached epic proportions, yet another Trump record. :eusa_dance:
It’s not a good thing when half the country can’t stand our leader. Don’t know why you seem to be bragging about that.

Meh, we can't stand them right back. We will never compromise with the left, assume we will fight those traitors tooth and nail on everything from here on out.

The Fake News Media is doing everything they can to crash the economy because they think that will be bad for me and my re-election. The problem they have is that the economy is way too strong and we will soon be winning big on Trade, and everyone knows that, including China!

Four days later on August 19, a frustrated Trump thundered:

Our Economy is very strong, despite the horrendous lack of vision by Jay Powell and the Fed, but the Democrats are trying to “will” the Economy to be bad for purposes of the 2020 Election. Very Selfish!

It would be very selfish, indeed, had House Speaker Nancy Pelosi reacted by declaring:

“We worked very hard to keep our fingerprints off of these proposals [because] their storyline is that there must be some villain out there who’s keeping this administration from succeeding.

The single most important thing we want to achieve is for [him] to be a one-term president.”

But Nancy Pelosi didn’t say those things about President Trump. No, then-Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said them about President Obama.

And it was McConnell, along with his allies in the GOP-controlled House and the right-wing media, who engaged in unprecedented obstructionism and ceaseless subterfuge to torpedo the Obama Recovery.

After GOP sabotaged Obama, Trump looks to scapegoat Democrats for slowing economy

Lets take a stroll down memory lane, shall we....

Some original content from the OP would be nice... otherwise it's just plagiarism...

I’m not worried about the wings... neither side will ever budge and will continue to spew propaganda to demonize the other side no matter what... it’s all just noise in my opinion. I’m talking about the majority that lives in the middle. Both liberals and conservatives that can listen with open minds. When that group gets pushed to the wings in hyper partisan gameplay then we are in a bad place. That’s one of the biggest reasons why Trump needs to go

But you guys are the traitors. If you want to start challenging peoples love of this country, you guys stand in direct opposition to what America is supposed to stand for. And your leader is controlled by our number 1 enemy.

What was disconcerting was the audience reaction. Many people frowned.

One woman shouted at me: “I want a recession so we can get rid of Trump.”

I said to her as nicely as possible that even if you don’t like the president, you don’t want to root against America.

Do you really want millions of people to lose their jobs? Do you really want people to earn less money?
That doesn’t sound very patriotic or compassionate.

The woman crossed her arms and scoffed.

Now I get it that San Fran is the epicenter of Anti-Trump Derangement Syndrome and so maybe I shouldn’t have been surprised.

But now we see Democratic leaders and the “unbiased” media openly rooting for a recession.

The drumbeat for an economic contraction has been nonstop for the last two weeks.

Maryland Rep. John Delaney, a Democratic presidential candidate, recently chastised his own party for cheerleading for a financial collapse.

Democrats rooting for recession
