  1. Donny Dumbo Economy: Anything near Trump sooner than later turns into Unavoidable, and Inescapable crap💩!

      Yeah… Just ask his sons Eric & Don Jr. They are stunt doubles for Beavis and Butthead 🤣

    • @Showcase Success Lol 🤣🤣

    • @Showcase Success the real life ppl the characters were based on

      Dittzx A European economist said today that Donald is the one responsible for the globally tanking economy. Donald and only Donald. Why is not this destructive, narcissistic lunatic removed from office? He is destroying the entire world in all aspects. We hate him here in Europe. Get him out and all greedy, anti America republicans with him. The world needs a stable, trustworthy and democratic America.
      Sent from Sweden

    • @karin backstrom Thanx and agreed.

  2. It’s almost as if Trump doesn’t know what he’s talking about, and can’t be trusted on any topic.

  3. What’s PLAN BEE if you don’t VOTE” – FROM CANADA —is it TRUE that Trump went BANKRUPT 6 TIMES????? AND YOU ALLOWED HIM IN OFFICE ?????? You should update your laws.

  4. Tanking The Economy by Donny Dumbo Trump isn’t unexpected in particular when such a leader deceive, and divided us into his daily ranted narcissism. His racial economical aims are the opposite of a successful and more united society working together toward better future. Of course the only Economics 101 Donny Dumbo knows are from Trump University. Btw Economists are always the last to abandon the sinking ship. 🤔Hmmm

    • Dittzx : Today is the day we get to say, “I told you so,” to Trump Trolls. It may not, “feel,” good, because this is going to hurt a lot of people. But, it will only be one of MANY such days . . .

    • @Ash Roskell Actually I’m surprised it took 2, 1/2 yrs for this economy to showed Trump ineptitude, or perhaps bc Obama’s economy was stronger when he left in 2016. The weakness of a divided society inevitable will eroded itself and Trump is fulfilling exactly Putin dreams of divide & Conquer.

    • Dittzx : Obama left a lot of safety rails in place, and shored them up, the best he could, when he saw who was going to follow him. The fact that he yielded so much control to bankers and investors, is why the economy has managed to run itself for so long; that, and its shear, brute, strength. It’s also why so few of the criminals in the financial institutions were indicted, and were given bonuses, instead. And, it’s one of the things that made me so mad at him, at the time. But, Trump is Trump, and he just HAD TO impose himself on the economy, because he thinks that’s what presidents are meant to do, and his ego, of course. Each and every measure he’s taken has resulted in a negative impact, and it was only a question of time, before he broke it. But, he can still artificially stimulate it, for some time yet? The question really is, when they start fighting over the steering wheel, who gets to drive the bus? If it’s Donny, we’re going over a cliff. But, I’ll be GLAD. Given that it’s the only thing sustaining Trump. Maybe a painful Trumpectomy is the only cure? ✌️👍

    • @Ash Roskell Maybe a painful Trumpectomy is the only cure? Lmao 😀🤣

    Trump is manipulating the stock market. He thinks it’s a board game. He has to cheat to win.

    • @karin backstrom you sould never watch onesided news you would never know 4000+ people protesting outside the bbc news will tell ypu what you want to hear

      @Happy Hiker You are not a a very intelligent person, are you? I judge from what I see and hear the lunatic Donald says and tweets and it is beyond all belief of ignorance, incompetence and stupidity. He lies, brags about himself and insults people that he does not like. He calls them the most vulgar names and his behavior in international meetings make people laugh at his uneducated, hillbilly behavior. Donald is a disaster and that is the opinion of most people around the world. You just have to accept that. He has disgraced the American presidency.Donald is deeply mentally ill, no normal human being acts, talks and behaves like he does. He belongs in a psychiatric clinic where he cannot hurt America and the rest of the world.

      Happy Hiker libs don’t have to cheat there are more of us then republicans. Y’all are the ones that go out y’all way to limit the most amount of people from voting. As well as gerrymandering.

    It comes as no surprise that none of his words are factual. Sadly there is still a huge fanatic religious cult like base that worships him regardless of what he says or what disastrous policies he enacts. A wanna-be playboy fake millionairre without experience or knowledge of civics, impulsive and reckless, who is assisted into office by our adversary and places loyalists into positions of authority in the branches of government designed to check and balance and hold him accountable, what could possibly go wrong?

      So far America has not been in war with other countries, although there is an internal war. Like we cannot do without wars. It would be interesting, besides his speech, to hear past policymakers criticize his economic policies.

    Good word for Trump–reckless. He causes reckless chaos daily than runs away and never takes responsibility for his failures.

    That’s right… What Don the Con touches eventually turns to Orange mold … just ask his sons Eric and Don Jr… they are stunt doubles for Beavis and Butthead

      You mean Uday and Qusay?

    • He is so transparent – accusing China of currency manipulation. Of course HE has been doing exactly what he accuses others of doing. This is what is called economic warfare, and any warfare usualy ends up in tears for someone. If I were a betting man I would say that the inscrutable Chinese people are a successful nation and always have been – Trump on the other hand is a Dummkopf who never succeded in anything unless tainted in some way through illegality, collusion and obstruction.

      SO – I would place ALL of my money in the Chinese.

      In business you cannot compel consumers to buy certain products; they buy what they see as competitive and desireable products, such as German automobiles, Japanese electronics etc. Of course America also has its amazingly successful products such as Apple etc, but even these comapnies are obstructed by attempts such as Trump’s to control the markets.

      🦆 Donald Duck 😊

    • LOL, thank you for the laugh. I agree, with you and the poster saying “Donald Duck” So we have the Donald Duck and Beavis and Butthead running this wacky WH!

  9. You mean the man that filed bankruptcy like 10 times isn’t good for the economy!? You don’t say…

    • Only six of his failures went to bankruptcy. The others were bailed out by his daddy. Many tanked anyway. He is a complete failure, always has been. He’s only propped up by a false façade he created by duping banks, the media, investors and the public. Anyone who still can’t see this after 3 years, you are a hopeless lost soul.

    To be fair, Trump and his advisors will be too busy moving their own money abroad to worry about the US economy.

  14. When i think about Trump i always think of a clown or a drunk.

  15. the guy who went bankrupt a bunch of times himself then bankrupted our nation when he was entrusted with the most important job which he wasn’t qualified for? no way! whodathunk!

    Donald Trump comes from one of the simplest businesses in the world: real estate. He thinks it is a zero sum game all, which is why he was bad at real estate. Trump surrounds himself with people who cannot think beyond the level of junior high school pranks, like Bolton and Mnuchin. That is why America is going down. And you know what? HALF of the Americans he is doing great!!!

    Trump brags about the stock market because this is where his circle of friends make their money. I don’t know why anyone in America voted for a man who ruined small businesses by not paying his bills because they did not have the resources to fight back. Did they really think Trump cares anything about ordinary Americans? Come on now…

    • Again all of that happened in blue states and people in blue states are unAmerican to his base and not to be trusted to people in red states who voted for him. Somehow he will blame it on Democrats or Chuck Schummer or Nancy Pelosi or Obama or the Clintons.

      trump still doesn’t pay his bills he owes a few states money for his rallies.

    They teach this in the Military – there are four kinds of leaders. Best is someone who is competent and energetic – He knows what to do and gets the job done. Next best is someone competent but not energetic; with competent people helping him, he’ll still get the job done. Next best is the incompetent but lazy guy; at least he’s too slow to be hurting anyone. Worst of all is the one who is incompetent and energetic. He doesn’t have a clue what he’s doing, believes that he actually does, and is energetically making any bad situation worse. Trump is the World’s biggest example of that last category.
