  1. He sounds drunk But he doesn’t drink, so it must be dementia setting in

    These economists aren’t telling the whole story. The economy is broken.

  3. The homeless population has skyrocketed in my town since 2017. The rich getting richer while the poor get poorer. #TrumpsAmerica

      @Carlos Carlos You are just like your Master. When you have nothing to debate, you start name calling.

      @Patricia roe Unfortunately, the cartel put a hole in the great Wall we are all paying for, and drove a truck thru it already. What a complete waste of money! The destruction of the land is horrendous!

    • @Carlos Carlos Nope, those folks are in homes with a number of people living there. I know of buildings, old Victorians in the Mission in San Francisco ,that are set up like barracks. Those folks occupy a small percentage of the housing. The reasons for homeless are many, but the undocumented ain’t one of them…

    • Mark Fenster … Does anyone know how many homeless people there are in each state?

    • All good points from both sides of the argument. But all I know for certain is that the problem didn’t exist until after the 2016 election. When I say ‘Skyrocketed’, I’m not exaggerating. It’s completely out of control and sure doesn’t look like a ‘Great Again America’ to me.

  4. There is a $23 trillions crack in the economy.

    Cracks? More like gaping sinkholes. If the head of any department/agency was appointed by Trump, forget about getting honest numbers from them. Remember, this is the same administration that in 2017 banned the use of phrases like “climate change”, “reduce greenhouse gases”, etc. Putin must have explained to him what a Potempkin economy is.

  6. The Stock Market is NOT representative of the US economy, it hasn’t been since a disproportionately small number of Americans started owning a majority of the available wealth in this country back in the late 70’s/early 80’s.

    And, until a disproportionately large number of Americans start to realize that fact, Trump is going to continue getting away with having credibility on the issue.

    • @MosesPlays if you think that lying about a video causing an attack when you know it was a planned act of terror, for political purposes, or lying about issuing a stand down order to rescue teams at Benghazzi, again, for political purposes is okay, don’t you really want to ask yourself who is drinking the kool aid?

    • @MosesPlays suggested read for you “48 hours at Benghazzi”, written by a survivor of the attack, and one of the men who defied stand down orders and put his life on the line to try to rescue Ambassador Stevens. I’m sure you never even heard about the book on MSNPC or CNN. Now you know

    • @Randy Smith The US became the world’s largest energy producer in 2014. It’s also the worlds largest energy consumer.

    • @Andrew Newman it did not become the world’s largest energy producer in 2014 that is absolutely not true. We are the largest consumer, however, we are a net exporter. Try to get your facts straight

    The truth is that the economy is sitting on a huge bubble and this bubble is student and car loans. The bubble is going to burst and the bottom is going to drop out in 2020. In other words, the American economy is heading for a major depression.

    • Tax-bitchass biyatch | November 28, 2019 at 5:26 PM | Reply

      Ahahahah Michelle Haskins…what are the numbers for the next powerball you nut job

    • I’d add housing to that!!!

    • And, in ‘une homage’ to Reagan administration deregulations, Trump **removed** retsrictions placed on banks and big businesses that were applied during Obama to prevent another recession.

    • Nah, a recession perhaps, but a good chunk of student loan debt is to the government and if it doesn’t get paid, so what, congress can change the laws many ways to make paying it back more affordable. Republicans may it harder for people who owe that debt; odd how they are the same ones who gave 1.5 trillion in tax cuts to the rich. #VOTEBLUE

  8. This economy is great for the upper class.

    • @MrShanester117 Reagan: The first president to ever borrow foreign money and this country has been doing it since then.

    • DRSmetal You’re just parroting the CNN/MSNBC talking point. More people are working AND making more. Get over yourself.

    • Rod Allen nope you’re just delusional and brainwashed that can’t even admit the truth even if it’s blowing up in front of your biotic fascist face.
      You just keep practicing that deflection you learned from Trump University. Typical brainwashed Cultist Trumpkinturd Snowflake blubber.

  9. WATS WRONG IS CORPORATE PROFITS OVER WORKERS LIVES AND WAGES

    • Mama always said ‘wealth inequality is like a box of chocolates, 87% of it is mine, the other 99% of y’all can fight over what’s left.’

    • you got that right ,wages have not kept up inflation for the last 40 years.

    • So start your own business and stop whining

    • @Brenda Heeligan It’s been happening for hundreds of years. We have never really been more than peasants and the sweat for the rich to get richer. Time to change that but it will take time and effort of the average folks to even start to turn it towards the right path.

    • @fred sims That is definitely true. Trump economics: Amazon paid no taxes on a $10 billion dollars profit. And the Federal minimum wage hasn’t risen in 10 years.

    What did people expect, Your living just above poverty level, But you voted in a President,That’s for the rich do,The math ! ☹

    • @ma,ma gee’s gospel True👍

    • what. i expected somebody who lives in a solid gold tower and who gold-plates his own hair to be super-concerned about my financial situation and really want to help me.
      theres no disconnect there, is there?
      i’m not a moron, am i?
      happy thanksgiving, everybody!!!

      @Flashy Paws YOU WERE GREATLY DECEIVED, AND A LITTLE SPECIAL !
      P.S I THINK YOU’RE JUST BEING SARCASTIC, I HOPE ! AND HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO YOU ALSO ! 🤔🙏🏼👍🏻

    • Democrats are not any better. That’s the problem. Both parties are for the rich.

    • ma,ma gee's gospel | November 28, 2019 at 7:02 PM | Reply

      @Misuchi Miss NOT TRUE, BUT BELIEVE WHAT YOU WANT ! 🤔🙏🏼👍🏻

  11. Anyone remember what happened in 2008? But thanks to Trump, when the bubble bursts this time it’s going to be horrendous. Buckle up folks it’s going to be a very rough ride.

  12. Trump supporter: “I hear the economy is great, even if I have trouble paying the bills.” Interviewer: “Who told you the economy is great?” Answer: “Trump.”

    • MVVpro
      Liberal: “I hear the economy will crash and WWIII is going to start.”
      Interviewer: “Where did you hear that?”
      Liberal: “CNN/MSNBC (Ministry of Propaganda)

    • Interviewer: What can you tell us about Rod Allen?
      YouTube admin: His channel doesn’t have any content. Zero. None.
      Interviewer: That’s weird, isn’t it?
      YouTube admin: Not really. It’s quite common among trolls.

    • @Rod Allen trump cant even explain you why the economy is great.

    • @Rod Allen what was the GDP growth last quarter? 1% just 1%.

  13. Blink Once on Sunday! | November 28, 2019 at 2:26 AM | Reply

    The economy is great for rich people. Employment rates are misleading when wages are staying low.

    • Plus most companies have been cutting back on paying part of employees health care and cutting bonuses because they know trump will be out soon and the new president will reverse all the damages trump is doing

  14. At least Reagen was a movies star…. when he Screwed us with his BS trickle dwn economics, But Some FAT OLD Pervert who looks at his own daughter & Fantasizes about her, screwed us with the Same BS…. Americas standards are Rock Bottom these days

    • Star? He was a B grade actor with such winners as The Voice of the Turtle, Bedtime for Bonzo, The Winning Team and Cattle Queen of Montana. Then General Electric bought him for their TV show, and spent a lot of time travelling to GE plants spewing the corporate proganada. He was bought and paid for by the MIC, and they did really well with him as their asset.

  15. Everyone I know is struggling financially

  16. Trumps gotta big drug problem, slurred speech, delusional behaviour, totally unfit to be president.

    • IT IS VERY TRUE IN THE WHITE HOUSE- THEY SAY HE HAS COMPLETELY LOST IT-
      YELLS AT PEOPLE; ALSO HEARD HE HAS BROKEN HISTORIC ITEMS ON PURPOSE DURING A RANT.
      HOPEFULLY HE WILL HAVE ANOTHER “VISIT” TO THE HOSPITAL FOR ANOTHER CHECK-UP. HE’S HAVING BREAK DOWNS .
      LET US HOPE THE NEXT ONE WILL KEEP HIM REMOVED FOR GOOD.

    • Let’s hope so….by the way happy thanks giving.

  17. The inevitable “Trump Bankrupcy” is coming…

    … And it will make “The Great Depression” look like a “bad joke” once it arrives.

    • GOP administrations: crash the economy.

      Democrat administrations: get the economy back from recession and to stability and something closer to (or even actually achieving) economic growth.

      Rinse, repeat.

    “The economy” isn’t real. It’s just how rich people measure their leverage over your money

  19. He is running the country like all of his properties that went bankrupt!

    • If you look back at Trumpty Dumpty’s bankruptcies he almost always walked away with millions in executive compensations.
      Because most of his companies, outside of his Real Estate holdings, were setup as single entity companies.
      Where he held the titles of President and CEO, but as separate not combined job.
      So when the company went bankrupt he would collect two golden parachutes instead of one.
      Which screwed the investors out of millions.

    • claire bigelow | November 28, 2019 at 5:40 PM | Reply

      he;s gone bankrupt 6 times……let that sink in

    • I think “running” is a generous description.

  20. Curious language to use: “… hasn’t filtered down yet.” Yet?? As if.
