    Trump’s, so-called “Economic Boom” is for lower wage jobs … without healthcare insurance coverage, retirement pensions or basic employment benefit bonuses.

    • @Zachary Damascus what’s disgraceful is the immediate move to force people and take from them… in the name of helping people. Your not helping anybody except your own satisfaction in the false idea you helped somebody. The way to help people is by giving them as many opportunities as possible equally, not based on class or race. Controlling businesses is how you get them to do business in another country instead, hurting everybody you now pretend to want to help. The government has only one responsibility and that is the protection of rights. The idea you can have the government take from others to fit your perverse idea of helping is the true disgrace.

      @damien neimad I do not understand how you can say that the way to help people is to give them as many opportunities as possible equally, yet be fine with a system where if a poor person ends up with cancer or a broken bone, their lives could be ruined.

      Anyway, I don’t have time for further discussion. Have a nice night.

    • @Zachary Damascus cancer ruins lives… no matter how much money you give or throw at it. That’s just common sense.

      Have a nice day.

    • @MJB For Trump YOU are truly DELUSIONAL wacko—why don’t you go back with the trolling lemmings—-you know——- small rodents who overpopulate and throw themselves off of cliffs —–OF foxy lying real fake news

    • @MJB For Trump YOU are a real piece of work—-you wouldn’t know the truth if it hit you upside the head—why not go back to foxy news the real FAKE news with the other lemmings—you know small rodents who throw themselves off of cliffs when they over populate—-!!!

  7. Thanks Obama!! 👍

  8. Thanks for setting the record straight especially for those trumpers

      The Trumpers won’t listen! They drank the kool-aid the day Obama was elected the first time! Bigots!

  9. I cannot tell a lie – George Washington
    I cannot tell the truth – Donald Trump
    We cannot tell the difference – Trump cult

  10. Trump claims credit for the growing economy , he never states what specifically he has done to claim this acumen. The exploding of the national debt is not an accomplishment , one day it will bankrupt the country if not reduced. Just like maxing out your credit cards will bankrupt you. Of course by then trump won’t take the blame for those trillion dollar tax cuts. Why his supporters fail to understand what is going on around them is simply astonishing . Do y’all realize that every eligible student could attend college for free, for the cost of servicing the national debt every yr. The benefit to encouraging and educating the best and brightest students is immeasurable .

    Trump’s swindled away his families money, Now him and his Administrations is swindling away the American people’s money, Every single day their in office, Until we get all those free loaders out ! 🤬

  12. Trump clearly wouldn’t have a clue how to build the economy, increase jobs, improve infrastructure etc. etc. Not the faintest clue or the slightest interest obviously. 😢🇺🇸

      Just can’t handle the truth can you? I guess you still think the dems PROVED Trump colluded with Putin to snatch the election from Hillary.

      I bet you think the phone call was an ‘EXISTENTIAL THREAT TO OUR VERY DEMOCRACY’………..LOLOLOLOLOLOL

      I even bet that you think that a President or anyone should lose his job due to the testimony of an anonymous leaker.

      I have facts. You got Nancy. Aint’ she a peach? Nuttier than a squirrel turd.

    • So true….and no one knows that better than Trump.

    • @beth Schuler Well, you have my pity.

    • Ain’t THAT the FFFING TRUTH!!!!!

      @JAMES Schott He knows how to massage Adam Schiff’s colon and laugh about it. LOLOLOLOL

  13. Economy booming yet stores are closing down

    • Instead of ending the bank bailouts ….. The Trump-GOP finanancial agenda has increased the risk limit for banks. So, the economy looks like it is doing well but the division in wealth is growing exponentially. Also, if the banks fail, the cost automatically goes to the public debt.
      … “Under the banner of providing relief to small banks, the new bill exempts certain institutions from having to comply with “stress tests,” audits to prove they have the capital and resilience to withstand a financial downturn without putting the financial system at risk.”

      Google: Trump to sign partial Dodd-Frank repeal: A financial win or the start of a new crisis? (wjla)

      5) Trump is also bankrupting small farms who didn’t get the farmers bail-out by destroying their markets with tariffs.

  14. From Trump university to Trump Charities. It’s all one big LIE to scam people out of their money.

      I suspect around 45% of the population of the USA are not well educated, basically dishonest, and lack good judgement. Combine that with a corrupt, dysfunctional political system and what you see is what you get.

    Imposter, con man, fake President…

  17. Obama couldn’t get impeached in eight years. Trump did it in three years. Finally something Trump did better than Obama 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍

  18. It’s easy to tell when the orange felon is lying. His lips are moving.

  19. How can you talk about “average jobs” when the total number of jobs added is in the millions?
    Dishonest media.
