  1. LMAO. Trump wants to cave!!!!!

    The yield curve doesn’t lie.

    • @TruthSeeker08 Ok. We will. Thank you!

    • @TruthSeeker08 USA is thriving stronger than ever and ppl still blaming him. Incredible.

    • Then why was there not one mention about the economy is the last clown debate the other night?  Yea, that’s right.  You idiots just keep making it up.  Oh, and when are we going to see all the unrefutable proof of corruption from Nadless and Schiff for brains?  I can say with absolute certainty that the left has gone completely insane.  All because of severe hatred.

  2. The art of the great Deals. Suckers!

  3. But everyone knows tariffs are good and trade wars are easy to win.

  4. China waited for 3000 years, they can easily out-wait Trump.

  5. China will wait out this crazy guy. Who wouldn’t? There will be no deal till this dumb president has gone. It’s now that China will say “Screw you Mr Trump, you hanging in the wind”.

    • Yea how can they deal and trust someone so unstable

    • @stoeger 2 it’s to pwn the liberals

    • i’m glad China won’t be making any more of those
      MAGAT. dunce hats any more!!

    • Haruhi Suzumiya : You’re right about the Rust Belt. What was that last comment, to stoeger 2 about? I didn’t follow?

    • 高东锋 : The politics in all Democracies is about money. People ALWAYS vote with their wallets. They may get it wrong. But, they always go with the person that they, “think,” will keep the money coming in. Now they KNOW that guy is NOT Trump. All he needs now, is an opponent who can convince the people that they’re better with money than Trump. That won’t be hard

  6. You’re running out of time AMERICA!!!

    • Alex Jay
      So easy to manipulate stats or wait it’s called alt-facts. This market is for the 1% buying back their own stocks, get with the program it’s called a, (forget it never mind waste of my time.)

    • @cherrocco berry plz enlighten me. I’m in finance so this ‘buyback’ concept you speak of intrigues me…..

    • @cherrocco berry…. so this 1% stock repurchasing ultimately brought the markets to the current predicament …??? Please continue… you have me flabbergasted

  7. Would you say that the trump team is ” Russian” for an escape hatch?

  8. If we want all this to end, it will require ACTION on our part.
    We all need to Get out and vote in 2020

  9. With all of this instability and on again off again tariffs it must be hard to do business. How do you plan ahead? Layoff personnel now ahead of a recession? Overstock now because it might not be available later. For the first time in my life I feel sorry for business owners and, of course, their employees.

  10. Trade war is easy to win. Are you tired of winning yet?

    • David such sarcasm—funny!

    • jim harmon The only ppl talking about Socialism are Trump cultists

      Notice it wasn’t a talking point until Trump needed a new Boogeyman

      Now all the cultists obediently screech about Socialism

      Watch; as soon as there is a Dem candidate, no matter who it is, Republicans will immediately start screeching that whoever the candidate is, they are the Most Liberal Socialist EVER

      And idiots like Dork Lard will go to his basement “command center” and obediently start posting it

    • David “Best President”?!?


      I bet you also believe that President Obama was born in Kenya too, cause there’s no Trump lie too stupid for a Trump cultist to swallow

      You can go back to waiting for the check from Mexico to pay for the wall now – oh, wait, that was a lie too

      You know, a mind is a terrible thing to waste, but you can’t waste what you don’t have

    • @Ralph Boyd If that even half way happens, This country is screwed. Capitalism built this country!

  11. Trump screwed up, as always.

  12. The Good News? Karma is working. Some vile Trump voters are on the frontline of pain and will suffer the most economically!!

  13. Donald Trump is not competent. I find it scary that we will be in a recession because of someone’s ego.

    • Trump has NOTHING or will to do with recession. Banksters backed by rich democrats and republican NEOCONS do.
      Neocons hate Trump, democrats HATE trump. Why?

    • Are you insane? We are not in recession or anywhere near one_of course a recession will someday occur_big deal recessions are a normal economic occurrence. What you should be afraid of is your ignorance of economic cycles & what causes them.

    • Jennifer Doofus don’t fret over imaginary problems, worry about your biggest problem_yourself.

    • @David Stolze lowest unemployment in history for black folk, asians & latinos. Record number of Americans working. Historic low unemployment for women. Record highs in stock market. Largest and strongest economy in the world. Strongest military in the history of the world. Seems competent to me.

  14. Republicans always run the economy into the ditch.

      @Salty Methods Obama returned Iranian money stolen from the Iranians by a previous US administration.
      He didn’t *GIVE* Iran anything that wasn’t the property of Iran in the first place.

    • Are you kidding me. Look around economy is better than ever. LEFTYS are not just stupid. Their blind

    • Nehemiah Scudder | September 14, 2019 at 9:58 AM | Reply

      @James Edgil An economy with an inverted yield curve is far from healthy. An economy that can be precipitated into massive one-day stock exchange losses on the basis of a Presidential tweet is far from healthy. An economy that has to spend billions in taxpayer-funded subsidies to farmers is far from healthy.

      Now resort to the usual excuse of “Fake News” and see how impressed your orange Fuhrer will be.

    • Salty Methods it was so Valerie Jarret would eat out Michelle !

    • Are you kidding me? The last five or so Major recessions including 1929 were under Democrat Presidents

  15. The ‘leaders’ are afraid that the low-life, fat con will “lose his temper”…good Lord.

    • Daniel Parks Everybody knows he’s a raging, grandiose, Narcissist. He called himself the King of the Jews, second coming of Christ or whatever. There is obviously something wrong with him. Trying to bully people into perpetuating his lies, ie Sharpie Gate! Sorry, Revisionist History is unacceptable. He is off his rocker

    • Blake still in the game | September 13, 2019 at 10:38 PM | Reply

      LMAO 😂 😂

    • arxsyn
      Way Off 😂😂😂 like 10yrs. Wonder why he prefers a crooked Doctor tht allows him to write his own .😂..his own😂 lol I’m done!

      This is madness

  16. Please get this guy out of office. It’s obvious he isn’t even listening to his advisors

  17. I could see China and Russia rigging the election again to make Trump president because they know he is incompetent and that would be good for them .

  18. If you vote for Trump again in 2020 China will loose the trade war because they’ll be too busy laughing.

  19. P.S. before any of you vote, I suggest you all picture Trump naked, with that super-tiny weener….

  20. What did they expect when you put a 6 time bankrupt in charge of your finance, worse businessman on the planet its like giving a murderer a gun
