Trump did not build a prosperous economy. He inherited one.

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump’s campaign speeches can careen into many topics, but his primary appeal continues to be that he built “the greatest economy that we've had in our history” before the COVID-19 pandemic and he can do it again. The latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll shows he has an edge with voters on that issue and the Trump economy is likely to be a big topic this week at the Republican convention.

But the real story of the Trump economy, and the president’s role in building it, is not so simple. If you compare key economic indicators from Barack Obama’s second term in office to the first three years of Trump’s time (that is, before the pandemic hit), the data show a continuation of trends, not a dramatic shift. It suggests Trump didn’t build something new; rather he inherited a pretty good situation.


In the commentary about President Donald Trump’s economy Monday (“Baltimore businesswoman: I had high hopes for the Trump economy. It’s even better,” Sept. 2), the author seems clueless that the positive trends in jobs and economic growth all began in the first year of the presidency of Barack Obama when he turned around the disastrous legacy of fiscal irresponsibility and greed of the Bush administration.

The trends have been positive ever since, and all Mr. Trump has done is ride the wave of economic prosperity he inherited. Meanwhile, he has set in motion all of the elements of greed and self interest that have led to recessions in the past. He is destroying the economy with vengeful tariffs, slowed down solar clean energy with solar panel tariffs, eliminated science from the EPA, blocked the Clean Water Act, blocked the Clean Air Act and canceled emissions controls on power plants while promoting dirty coal over clean energy. He has conspired to lower the standards for higher fuel economy and lower emissions cars all while denying these causes of climate change. All of this while driving the public debt another trillion dollars higher.

NBC news and the Baltimore Sun are anti Trump sources. Your post is invalid.

On top of that, he not only cheered on the Fed to pump TRILLIONS of inflationary dollars into an economy that was not in recession, and even BEGGED THEM TO PUMP IN MORE AND TO DROP INTEREST RATES EVEN MORE, feeding inflationary pressures even more. Keynes himself was rolling over in his fucking grave.

Then, after sitting at only a 2.3% GDP, he called it "the Greatest Economy Ever". It was par for the orange course: A shameless, blatant lie to please the rubes.

Of course the rubes, ignorant about all of that, and economics/markets in general, just parrot what he tells them. The Dunning-Kruger Effect, in all its mindless glory.

CNBC is anti-Trump. Your source is invalid.

Boy, that escalated quickly. It's amazing how fast you the right wing media distorts everything.

You're quoting the FOX News report of the NYT OPINION PIECE, written by a far right columnist, who suggested that Biden should announce he's not running. The word "demand" only appears in the FOX News headline which lied about what it said.

FOX always starts with a germ of a fact, and then wraps it all up in lies and right wing hyperbole so that, in the end, the reporting bears no resemblance to the truth.
Cultist he said New York times

wages rose for the first time in decades under trump

Bullshit. Wages were already rising under Obama. The percentage increases were slightly higher in the first three years of the Trump administration, because the unemployment rate was 4.7% when Trump took office. The rate needs to be below 5% before wages show any appreciable increase.


Cultist he said New York times

The opinion piece was in the New York Times, and misquoted in the FOX New Report of the piece. FOX News report of the article said that Biden MUST announce, which is not what the NYTimes said at all. All of the posters here, are quoting and linking to the FOX News Report, not the opinion piece in the NYT.


The NYT has pulled the opinion piece completely, right after FOX News posted their article. I can't find it anywhere on the net today, but I saw it yesterday (paywall wouldn't let me link it), and the FOX News piece got it wrong. The title of the opinion piece was "Biden should announce". It was a suggestion, not a demand.

No, this is just the FOX News effect. FOX News keeps publishing these "sky is falling" lies about the economy, and promoting the idea that Biden is senile, along with ramping up the anti-gay rhetoric and hate. The American people turned on the Demcrats after Obama was elected too.

But the midterms are NOT going to go like you think they are. Democrats are mobilizing voters to get out and ensure that Roe v Wade is codified in the House and Senate. Women are responding in droves.


Gas prices are dropping every day.

Joe Manchin has agreed to support the 2022 Deficit Reduction Act contains many of the things from the Build Back Better plan, that Manchin previously refused to vote for, including climate change initiatives.


Democrats saw what happened at the mid-terms, after Obama was elected. That's when Republicans started their assault on democracy, and free and fair elections. And the Senate stopped passing ANYTHING at all other than budgets and judging confirmations.

Voters have seen what has happened with Roe, the failure to ban semi-automatic weapons like the AR15, the SC wish list to overturn gay marriage, ban birth control and reinstate sodomy laws. Last week, 200 Republicans members of the House voted against legalizing birth control. The Senate voted down codifying Roe v Wade, and Schumer hasn't found enough Republican Senators who will voted for the gay marriage bill, to bring it to the floor.

These are not radical left wing bills. These are bills supported by more than 70% of all Americans, including a majority of Republican voters in the case of Roe, and gay marriage.

1) 9.1 percent inflation
2) Recession
3) skyrocketing interest rates.
these are facts.

Pouring more unearned money into the economy with inflation already 9.1 percent is insane.

But thanks to Xiden and the Dembots inflation...all that has been eaten up.

I have no idea who you refer to as "cult news". I know that there was an opinion piece on the NYT website yesterday, written by Brett Stephens and entitled "Biden should announce he's not running". Stephens is the Times pet right wing commentator. He's very much fringe right wing. I saw the piece but it was behind a paywall, this late in the month. So I tried to call it up on my phone which I seldom use for linking online, so I link to it, and it was gone.

FOX jumped all over this and said the Times said he MUST announce, and a lot of other bullshit besides. This was not a Times Editorial Board endorsement, this was one editorial writer's opinion, and it pisses me off that FOX portrayed it as statement by the times, because that's not true.

When I tried to search for it just to copy the link, to show that the Times in fact, had not "demanded" that Biden announce, an opinion piece in the Times had suggested he announce, it was completely gone, and none of the reports about this opinion piece included a link to the actual NYT piece.

The poster at Free Republic should be commended for a job well done researching and putting this together. Remember these accomplishments took place as Trump fought his own establishment party members, the lying liberal media, tyrant Obama judges, Democrats, the intelligence community, two impeachments, and the Russia hoax.

Just picking one of these at random:

  • •Instead of 2-for-1, we eliminated 8 old regulations for every 1 new regulation adopted.

In December, with great fanfare, the president announced that he had done even better than planned, eliminating 22 regulations for every one enacted in fiscal 2017.
But when experts started studying the list of 67 “deregulatory” actions, they found that the figures were pretty dubious.
As documented by Bloomberg News, the listed actions include ones initiated by previous presidents, double counting and relatively inconsequential steps. One action listed as deregulatory, having to do with immigration, imposed new burdens on businesses participating in an expanded visa program. At least 22 of the 67 claimed actions were started under President Barack Obama, Bloomberg News found.

Cary Coglianese, a professor at the University of Pennsylvania, faulted the list for including many deregulatory actions that were relatively minor, compared with the more substantial regulatory actions. “It is not too much of an exaggeration to say that administration officials are removing 22 ‘Peter Rabbit’ books from the regulators’ shelves for every one ‘War and Peace’ they add,” he wrote.

[snip]

Here’s the rub: Virtually all of these steps are not considered “economically significant,” meaning it would have an annual impact of $100 million or more. That’s an important caveat, Crews said.

The poster at Free Republic should be commended for a job well done researching and putting this together. Remember these accomplishments took place as Trump fought his own establishment party members, the lying liberal media, tyrant Obama judges, Democrats, the intelligence community, two impeachments, and the Russia hoax.

Scroll down to post 6 for the complete list of phenomenal accomplishments putting America first.

As of January 2021

I copied this list. Not to show any democRats as they are just to damn stupid to take any of it in. It just amazes me how much he got done with these lying, conniving, shit hole, democrats trying to derail his presidency at every turn. His first term showed him there is no low to how low these democRats will go. Just think how much he will accomplish his second term when he will dish out twice as much than he put up with his first term.
