No president miraculously turns around a bad situation in less than a month, and no president makes things great in 2-3 months. First off, the new president is dealing with the buget from the president before him. It took Obama 2-3 years to start seeing improvements. The Obama created economy was handed to trump and people who didn't want to give Obama credit for various reasons were quick to give trump credit for a miraculous turnaround he had nothing to do with.

In trumps last 2 years the economy was going down and we suffered from a manufacturing recession. This and the economic problems caused by COVID is what trump gave to Biden. Among other things.

‘A real mess’: Trump is leaving behind crises and undermining Biden before he takes office

When President-elect Joe Biden is sworn into office on Jan. 20, the list of crises he will face includes a massive cyber intrusion, a still-raging global pandemic, a slowing economic recovery and a lingering reckoning over the nation’s racial tensions.

President Trump is not making his job any easier and, in several ways, appears to be actively making it harder — going to extraordinary lengths to disrupt and undermine the traditional transition from one administration to another despite the nation’s many crises.

Trump has sought to play down or even deny the still-expanding cybersecurity breach that many experts blame on Russia, even as its impact has spread to a growing number of federal agencies. The delayed and turbulent transition process could complicate the Biden administration’s ability to address the challenge and shore up the nation’s cyberdefenses.


Remember those cyberattacks the trump faithful blamed on Biden? Remember when the cult members declared during their meeting how Putin ran Biden because he was "weak"? We haven't had a cyber attack for a while.

Trump left multiple messes for Biden to clean up

There are some who worship the ground Donald Trump walks on and support everything he has done, regardless of how ghastly. President Joe Biden, at the time of his inauguration, inherited a total mess.

When Trump took office on January 20, 2017, the national debt was $19.9 trillion, and when he left four years later, it was $27 trillion — and at the highest percentage of GDP since the end of World War II. And, Biden inherited the worst disease outbreak in over a century.


The Border Mess That Trump Left Behind

Reversing the previous administration's cruelties isn't the same as an unconditional welcome.

Economic Mess Left Behind For Joe Biden

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The extraordinary economic mess Donald Trump is leaving behind for President-elect Joe Biden continues to grow as another 742,000 workers filed for unemployment last week. More than 6.3 million Americans remain without work as outgoing President Trump has effectively given up on containing the pandemic which has now claimed the lives of over 250,000 Americans. Yet Trump, his administration, and his Senate allies would rather deny reality and refuse aid to families in need. They are choosing to undermine national security and public health by withholding critical transition resources from the incoming Biden administration, and choosing to push economic recovery further off by holding up urgently needed relief for struggling workers, states, small businesses — the kind of real relief the U.S. House passed months ago.

Former President Trump has canceled a January 6 press conference he was scheduled to hold at his Mar-a-Lago home, he announced in a statement Tuesday.​

Soon we can talk about real money
The wealthy are pretty good at paying the least amount of taxes possible. You do know that the best way to get them to pay more is with a flat tax, right? Eliminate all deductions and you can get rid of the IRS.

Welcome to backwards land.

A flat tax is a way to LOWER the taxes on the rich and raise them on everyone else

I thought the complaint was that the wealthy pay a lower percentage than everyone else because they have access to deductions that everyone else does not. A flat tax eliminates that and puts everyone on the same plane.

Heck, the government shouldn't be confiscating more than 10% anyway.
