    Never called you blindly ignorant, I said you had a closed mind

    Speculation
    Speculation
    Entire article is based around a poll that asks people what they speculate
    Estimates and speculation
    All being bailed out, it'll fix itself once the trade war is over
    I don't have a washpo subscription but this is an opinion article
    I don't have a financial times subscription
    Speculation
    Speculation

    These are all articles that talk about what COULD happen and what people THINK might happen. The only article I read that had any substance to it was the one that talked about the soybean industry, but even then that's a single instance that will fix itself in a year or so. I can just as easily google "trump good economy" and post a hundred articles touting a booming economy under Trump

    it is almost universally considered bad if the majority of the educated world considers what you're doing completely insane. economics is literally professional speculation.

    trump is not some big brain genius
    he's easily offended and unstable, he is not fit to govern. Sir Kim was correct: the white house will never look competent

    Okay, but I'd rather look at statistics and actual numbers (which show economic growth in multiple dimensions) than take the word of economists who are about as right as meteorologists

    It looks pretty competent to me. When this administration has accomplished more in the Korean peninsula than any other it's hard to deny he's definitely doing something right

    It was pretty much implied in your post, but even then calling someone close-minded for pointing out how much of a brainless shyster your precious Oompa Loompa chieftain is still seems like borderline ad hom if nothing else.

    In NK's favor?

    Yeah, something I'm sure everyone can agree about.

    Sure trump sucks and may not be the best suited for president but he has helped the economy no doubt. Military families and those connected to the United States such as my family personally benefit from some of his trade deals and such. So I thin in some aspects yes, he’s doing more than any other president has economically. Though in others he sucks.

    How exactly? Historically successful meetings with NK are in the favor of the whole world, not just NK itself

    He parallels Mitt Romney in many ways, except Donald manages to somehow be 1000x worse by every metric.

    Y'see, Donald is what I call a vulture capitalist, which is just an affectionate way of saying he likes to pick apart the middle-class and leave their gangling remains to his equally sick-and-twisted billionaire compatriots.

    He's robbing the people who voted for him completely blind and getting away with it because they vest so much trust in him. A decent chunk of his supporters are retirees and/or soon-to-be retirees who maintain their support for him despite his recent pushes to hack-and-slash Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security.

    Y'know, if I'm being totally honest he's kinda like a televangelist preaching the Prosperity Gospel: make the rich richer, shed your savings, and you will be prosperous in abject, disease-ridden poverty.

    i still stand by my assertion that donald trump was placed into power by the elite to sow division and distraction among the populace so they don’t question capitalism.

    I am astonished we have people who defend the coal industry because "There are cities that depend on it" or that "Solar power is too expensive"

    I mean... If governments gave more of their pie to make solar power more dependable and affordable, both those points wouldn't.. Well, exist. On top, I personally don't think we as a planet don't need any source of power other than solar and geothermal/hydrothermal. Why burn coal when you have a literal 6.6SI Tons of lava under us, or a 1.400.000km wide nuclear reactor in the sky we can so easily tap into?

    Imagine debating how good someone is for a country while the world is breaking down.

    the world is experiencing a decline because capitalism has not only approached, but passed its expiration date. everything will be downhill from here on out unless we as a species start to evolve a little bit.
