  1. I would like to see Trump lose because he's a bad person, not because of money. Besides that he's the one f**** up the shitshow

  2. He may be right….. but you need to ask Frump! Who does he MEAN by "WE"…because he seems to be focusing on his surrounding TROOPS,and his demonic circle of friends! Which are getting alll the perks.

    Yeah! Someone is getting his [ their] full! And it isnt the AMERICAN CITZENS who pay into this winfall he claims is and will CONTINUE to happen!

  3. So, he gave all the money to the rich … who lost all the money on the stock market.
    There is no money to trickle down.

  4. Assuming his supporters would believe “real” economic facts not trump “facts”, then probably they will turn on trump. But, they LOVE him to death!

  5. Oh yes cuz he's not a good deal maker if he was a good deal maker knew how to make money he would pull this country before it gets into a recession he will help this country come back but he's not a good deal maker he is a typical Republican he cares for himself only what it makes him not what it makes for the people of this country or the country it's what it makes him he thinks he's there in the presidency to make money for himself that don't happen when this country music money he's losing money and what's going to happen he's going to be crying more and more nobody should be like the many ways he has done nothing for this country he has not made this country great again he's made no money for this country show where he has made any money for this country and Emil and people will vote for him again anyway but he has made no money for this country there's no money coming into this country except from Saudi Arabia because they bought arms from us but then again to president thinks that money is his cuz he sold those arms to Saudi Arabians so not even wrong he talks about presidents making bad deal he made the worst deal of his life and at what price a price the price of an American citizen news reporter that was killed in Saudi Arabia and how it go

  6. This year Donald Trump can own himself because he did this he started the tariffs and he started the trade War China has held out and then he walks away from imposing what are Earth on time but time is not paying because we are the American people live and we're finding it harder and harder even put food on the table because most of our jobs are only giving us 5 hours a week 5 hours a day 20 hours a week so we have to hold two to three jobs because he's letting companies get away with not giving the hours they need to have and that's wrong

  7. If you told a Trump voter that all their children would die if they voted for Trump again…they would ask if he would still win even if they didn't vote.

  8. Hahahah title should be we the morons are hoping the economy collapses and millions of people lose jobs so that we can say we were right about something on Facebook for once in our lives

  9. I really do not need to watch the full report, knowing that this is the one true intent, and the way in which the suddenly very quiet, alt-right, and it's publicized 'scorched earth policy' will have fruition, as well as to what will fill the vacuum when the Republican party goes belly up.
    Your about to repeat history pre World War 2, and the events in Germany that put Adolf Hitler and the Nazi's in complete power.

  10. Trump started off with a favorable economy, as a direct result of Obama's positive momentum. Trump's inepitude and blantant stupidity compelled him to halt the favorable results. Instead Trump purposely replaced winning with losing, the "Tarrift man" messed-up bigly, he impoverished the farmers. Now he's giving them an inadequate, token "hand-out" to pacify his loyal idiots. They're going to thank him for making their life rough and they'll still vote for that fool!!!

  11. Obama’s economy he’s been riding is about to land!!! Now What ????? 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  12. What country supports those who supports hate. Most Americans are not aware of the truth about trump. It is not about Republican or Democrat, rich or poor Fox news CNN news , NPR or z 100 its about hate Baptist or catholic Buddhist or Muslim ? It's about a man's incapacity of love. When we look at the wall of hate and fear Mexico understands what's going on the world is watching this hate bitter hate that would be uncalled George Bush watched Americans killed in a attack look at us know that we needed to protect ourselves l. Look at what we as Americans have fought the war of independence. We watched countless people loose there lives in Mogadishu Somalia we did not see the struge we fight wars against hate. We as Americans need to just tell the truth about trump and not really discuss each issue but tell all elected officials to stand as God's children and not allow hate to define us as Americans but that we stand with a constitution and bill of rights that define us as Americans I pledge allegiance to a flag of the United states of America one nation under GOD liberty and justice for all regardless of who the are justice for those that spread hate

  13. Was 2088 the Bush downfall? F no, they just blamed Obama and all the media disagreed for about a day. Then 3 years of repeating the lies.

  14. Trump is so clueless and he will never admit that, he is just pours gasoline on the problem and continues to lie to the American people.

  15. Tell me this? How on earth is he able to eye Greenland 🇬🇱 yet unable to sustain America? And he can forget eyeing UK as well.we ain’t for sale!

  16. What does he see, that no one else sees, sems like things are falling apart. All he is concerned about is winning eveything.Especially reelection. This country is headed for a recession, under his watch.

  17. He doesn't have any experience in being a real president, And he shiows it in all his speeches.Rambling about senseless, information. Nothing is really improving.

  18. Standard operating procedure. Hand the wheel of a booming Democratic economy to a Republican and watch them run up the deficit with huge tax breaks for billionaires and break the economy with tirades against our trading partners abroad.

    What next? Hand the wheel back to a Democrat (who wasn't a lazy student who had his grade bought by a rich daddy like Bush or Trump) and let them fix the economy while the GOP anti-democracy Senate led by McConnell stops every reform put in place to prevent more collapse in the future, then – bored with a White House that has no scandals and effectively does the job of governing – elect another GOPer who can make colorful TV with his lies and ignorant but colorful simplified take on history – cheering him while he makes one of them "edumacated" East-coast "Librul" look foolish by…you know…stating boring things like facts and actual historical events in the face of ignorant sound-bites. When someone prefers to vote for the suffering of other people they do not like OVER the well-being of his or her own family, you get someone like Trump in government. I hope the farmers and coal miners are enjoying all of their "winning".

  19. That rally in Pittsburgh, an employer forced his employees to attend or he would withhold their paychecks.

  20. Could buying beauty pageants so he can burst in on naked teen girls, be Trump's downfall? Could defrauding millions of dollars from people with a fake "university", be Trump's downfall? Could having secret meetings with infamous dictators, be Trump's downfall? Could alienating every ally the USA has, be Trump's downfall? Could bragging about sexually assaulting women, be Trump's downfall? Could a steady diet of lies, breakfast, lunch and dinner, be Trump's downfall? Could profiteering off the Presidency, be Trump's downfall?

  21. Recession? Any President can have a recession. Correct it and move on for positive results. Doesn't make him a bad President. TRUMP 2020! Democrat in White House will be a recession plus higher taxes. Wake Up People!

  22. Trump's tariffs proves he doesn't know anything about Economics and "free trade." His ignorance is scary. Thousands of psychiatrists already declared Donald Trump, "most dangerous man in the world." https://www.spiegel.de/international/world/donald-trump-is-the-most-dangerous-man-in-the-world-a-1075060.html

  23. Say trump STEP DOWN WHY DONT YA. YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THE HEL YOU DOING. GO BACK TO WHERE YOU CAME FROM. HONESTLY WE COULD DO BETTER WITHOUT YA. You couldnt handle your own business you had all these bankrupcies
    SO HOW IN THE WORLD COULD YOU HANDLE THE COUNTRY. MOVE SON GET OUT THE WAY!!!!

  24. Well I guess that in this society, Americans society money is the be all and end all, there is no denying that sickening statement… If attacking the credibility and the race of an elected women of Congress doesn't disqualify or at least demand civil apologies from different branches of our government, but the threat of a recession can cause major anxiety to ones campaign, I say, "shame on Americans" WTF are we doing and why?

  25. Another recession in this country will be the direct result of trump and his pathetic excuse for a racist presidency….

  26. I be SO GLAD HE DO THE BUSH ON YOU 😂😡😂👀💥 GOOD JUMP OUT THR WINDOWS AGAIN ACTS…I SEE U HOMELESS*YEA WOW THAT'S AWESOME*NOGOOD RATSOUP EATING BUMS…
    HE CANT SPELL* ECONOMY..FOOL YOU** ALL R A DISGRACE****,🥀🌬️🐷🐗🐍🐀🐕

  27. The recession will be the bankruptcy trump won't make any money off' Trumpty Dumpty will fall off the wall and all the white angry men, won't be able to put Trumpty together again.

  28. Recognizing economic indicators, historic trends and the fact of wealth and income inequality in America is not the same as wishing for an economic downturn. It is recognizing reality, something Trump supporters absolutely can not do without admitting they worship a demagogue instead of thinking independently. If you "believe" in one person and anyone and anything that contradicts their narrative is ignored or must be a lie, you are worshiping a demagogue. Over 12,000 documented lies and untruths shared by POTUS Bloatus to date…

  29. They are absolutely right that trump has done long-term damage to our agriculture industry and economy in general!!!

  30. This is a distraction. And did we forget that dozens were murdered and nothing has happened.
    Anyway, this clown wanted to take credit for the economy so he’ll have to own this.
    Hopefully the democrats don’t bite and put the focus where it belongs

  31. Trump's in a win / win situation, be re-elected or move home to Russia where I'm sure he has a place to sleep with Putin.

  32. mr Trump, Please help us. Our economy is headed towards a recession. We know you have the knowledge, skills, and power to improve our economy. Our stock market lost 800 points in one day! Thank you, A voter.

  33. Trump IS the reason the U.S. economy and the World economy is crashing and is guaranteed to burn down!

    What's even more amusing about that old predictable end-game-gambits,of our richest sociopaths,was that Trump had in one of his most megalomaniac delusions-dictated extreme arrogance moments the audacity to black-mail U.S. Congress, the Electoral College and the entire American public by threatening that if he, the great White mass American shooters- Fuhrer does not get re-elected, he will crash the economy!

    That's outright open black mail, that the House Dems should not allow! Because, other than robbing the U.S.A into bankruptcy, (quasi by distracting, deciding and pathological lying about what REALLY goes on not only with U.S. Economy etc), there is nearly NO way that Trump would escape and survive the impeachment and criminal prosecutions that follows once he is out of office. So the American Hitler immitation is clinging to power by clinging to Americans' purses and wallets while saying: " VOTE as I say, you peasants, or else.."

    Trump, is such a classical Mafioso Don. And America and Lady Liberty are his most lucrative loots yet. So start kissing the Don's Ring you intellectually most DISTRACTED Dems.

    What a dumb greedy opportunistic religious fanatic sociopaths run nation you sometime are, is pure comedic and a writer's purest irony in itself.

    Godless Best,

  34. "Winning, winning, winning!" -Charlie Sheen and Trump must have the same handler. RE: the economics of why this isn't working, "Killing the Host" by economist Michael Hudson should be required reading for every voter before the primary election. Neoliberalism is failing worldwide and an uninformed electorate that is ignorant of how our economic system works is largely to blame. We cannot continue to vote for politicians that take corporate and Wall St. money and pretend they will represent what is good for the people.

  35. The big gas bag is out of gas! Every time the liberals save our buts in come the Pubelickers to screw it up again.

  36. The great economy recovery Obama built has finally been destroyed by trump policies.
    Here comes the pain…… The moron trump destroys everything he touches. It's always the republicans that rob America of a good economy, that the Democrats build… No more GOP…

  37. I know that economic pain will hurt many especially those least able to sustain its impact, but if it will root out this idol worship of Trump, then he deserves whatever he has brought on himself. I say let the chips fall where they may. And, one can only hope those who brought him to the WH will have a change of heart.

    I strongly suspect, though, he will deflect responsibility to his usual and favored scapegoats, and his base will further ratchet up their attacks and mistreatment of those targets. Haters hate; they are incapable largely of self-reflection and course-correction.
    And Imagine what happens when, I believe when, he is re-elected. There will be nothing and no one to tame his bitter need to mistreat those he has labeled as unworthy — women, the rest of the world, and anyone or anything he neither likes nor understands including global warming and environmental issues.
    God help us!

  38. Because his blatant racism, his obvious lack of qualifications, his love of tyranny and autocrats, his inaction on gun crime and mass shootings, his terrible choices for federal and judiciary appointments, weren't good enough reasons for him being no where near the Oval office.
    The economy is way down the list for me. What good is it anyway when only the wealthy feel its benefit? It's certainly not helping the 40 million in poverty. The 30 million uninsured. Those financially crippled by obscene student debts.

  39. This is why Nancy Pelosi wanted to wait to impeach. She knew Trump would dig himself a bigger deeper hole. Nancy was right and I understood she knew Trump could not and will not do better.

  40. America deserves the lying foolish leaders they elect into office.

    RECESSION AMERICA, RECESSION.

    WE ARE GOING TO FEEL IT FULL THROTTLE BY THIS TIME SUMMER OF 2020.

  41. The world champ of bankruptcy will put America into a bankrupt nation for his legacy ! Wake up Trdumbptards !

  42. Could a slippery economy be Trump's downfall ////. LOL lol Ah YEAH! Add to that pathological liar, that is a"mental illness" !! OK!? How much further down this road do you want to Go?

  43. The lack of migrant farm workers isn't helping the economy any either:
    1) this decreases farmers' incomes
    2) this increases consumers' costs for produce

    And if Trump wants to say "Look at all those jobs that are now available!", uh, I'm not sure there'll be a long line waiting to fill them; that's hard work for low pay and often out in the hot sun, and I've done it so I speak from experience: not desirable.

  44. This economy is total B$!!! MASSIVE FINANCIAL DISPARITY, LESS THEN 5% OF THE POPULATION OWN OVER 95% OF IT'S ASSETS!!!!!!!!

  45. America’s economy is broke bankrupt thanks to this buffoon in the White House with a fourth grade education.

  46. The expansion may be long on the tooth but its only 15 months to voting day and the bubble can be kept going. Fed cannot print enough money to keep it going but it can postphone it for a little and he can take defense money and spend locally so the impact may not be much..

  47. This man would lie to his mother, Jesus and God almighty too there face. It's amazing the more he talks the more he lies, that's the sign of a con artist sociopath or worse psychopath.

  48. It is inevitable that this country will go into a recession. The republicans and Trump have damaged the government and economy too much to stop it. It will take a democratic congress and president to pick up the pieces, again.

  49. The last two Democratic presidents lowered, I repeat, lowered the deficit that was handed to them by previous administrations. Yet all we ever hear on Fox and Friends is how Democrats will spend the economy into ruin.

  50. Trump voters don't care about anything connected to reality, so no, another deep recession won't matter to them. They will blame it on immigrants, Democrats, and lack of an Evangelical theocracy regardless of the 1st Amendment.

  51. Not just that. Is everything else he has done to the people, constituents, children, the Country and the Constitution.

  52. You know, I think that the Republicans scared USA citizens when we were witnessing, day after day, that you, the republican senators, never even tried to rein Trump in when he did terrible things (i.e., the Guatemalan children, the tax cut, the trade wars, his meetings with Putin and KJU in private, his invitation to Russia to hack the voting system, and other acts.)
    Instead of stopping him, you senators were enabling him to do terrible things and get away with it.
    To include your imposition of giving Kavanaugh a chair in the federal court, when there was still doubt about his demeanor toward women or whether he had lied.
    What about all the other judges that McConnell has placed in the "for life" positions in the USA courts without voting.
    Also, because McConnell gave entrance to the Russians by accepting the $200 million for Kentucky. He should return that money and cancel the deal he made with Russia; otherwise, it is going to be very difficult to have peace between Russia and USA.
    Because McConnell wants Russia to meddle with the voting process, and he refuses to pass the bill requesting to avoid Russia to this invasion of our privacy.
    Because McConnell, Graham, Jordan, Cruz, and all of you, Republican senators, Trump's enablers were so content to grab, steal, plan and among other things, comit treason. Which has made me, literally, cried for days at seeing how those poor children are being mentally, physycally, and sexually abused, to the point that some of them have died. The only thing they were asking for was asylum, per the Constitution mandates. But the President didn't want that, so he turns his back at them.
    You are aiding and abetting a man who has criminal tendencies. Besides, what about Barr? He should be disbarred and fired from the WH, instead of protecting and defending Trump? And, is he being paid with tax money? If so, why? If he is working for Trump. He is his personal attorney.
    The USA Country has given you so much, and this is how you pay your country.
    The constituents need people in positions of power that they can trust, are responsible, respectful, and love their country. No con men, overbearing, abusive, and then some.
    We need Senators who don't want to destroy their constituents health care, Medicare, SocSec, and other benefits. Protect these benefits. We deserve them.
    McConnell already threatened to destroy the health care right after election. (What makes him think that he is still going to be senator?)
    Now, Trump wants to cancel the laws and responsibilities that the Fish and Wildlife Department were given to protect endangared species and take care of the climate for the vital habitat of these species. And, to boot, he wants to issue an executive order to get his way.
    Does he have to destroy one more thing among everything he has already destroyed?
    This department takes care of the flora and fauna in danger of extinction, but Trump doesn't care. For him, money is his god.
    Have you, Senators, at least, tried to talk him out of this irresponsible, asinine act?
    For all this, we are not willing to accept a man, who pretends to be a president, only to fill up his pockets with money, while he destroys the rule of law, the Constitution, our livelihood, and our spirit.
    We deserve much much better!
