    My guess, he's going to be left with no choice but to go to war with iran to distract america as the election gets closer.

    If the economy enters a recession, or worse, it will be because of Trump's disastrous meddling.
    I would never describe those with whom I post as "libtards" or "contards." My understanding of economics is pretty unsophisticated too. But how often is just one contributor the cause of a recession?

    Less government intervention in the economy isn't going to cause recession. Trump isn't meddling. He's reducing government meddling. You can't name one single Trump policy that is injurous to the economy. If there's a recession, it will because of more meddling in the economy. The latest propaganda campaign is designed to cause a recession.

    I don't claim to be an expert either but I recognize meddling when I see it.

    You must not have been paying attention when he congratulates Xi on "consolidating his power" (usurping outright dictatorship) by exclaiming:

    "He's now president for life. President for life. No, he's great," Trump said. "And look, he was able to do that. I think it's great. Maybe we'll have to give that a shot some day."
    tRump would love to be come the dictator of America and hand it down to Javanka; that's how he is "a threat to your EVERY AmeriCAN's FREEDOM!

    "I" plan to vote AGAINST giving him that shot.
    Watching tRumps Presidency has been like watching a bunch of blindfolded dizzy children play pin the tail on the donkey.

    Beyond hilarious that you think Maher speaks for me or liberals in general. He is absolutely right about how much big bag of **** Trump is, though. And he's right on the nose when he calls Trump a "whiny little bitch."

    IOW, you're obviously rattled, too. That's the Fox News Poll you're calling "discredited," so by extension all of Fox "News" is as well.

    Trump isn't meddling.
    Really?

    In January 2018, Trump imposed tariffs on solar panels and washing machines of 30 to 50 percent.[1] In March 2018 he imposed tariffs on steel (25%) and aluminum (10%) from most countries,[2][3] which, according to Morgan Stanley, covered an estimated 4.1 percent of U.S. imports.[4] On June 1, 2018, this was extended to the European Union, Canada, and Mexico.[3] On July 6, 2018, in a separate move aimed at China, the Trump administration set a tariff of 25 percent on 818 categories of goods imported from China worth $50 billion, which led to China accusing the U.S. of instigating a trade war.[5]
    After extensive trade talks with China ended without an agreement on May 10, 2019, President Trump raised the tariffs on another $200 billion in Chinese imports from 10% to 25%. China retaliated three days later, announcing new tariffs on $60 billion of American exports.[14][15] Additional tariffs on another $300 billion in Chinese goods were being considered, pending a USTR hearing and a public comment period in June 2019.[16] In May 2019, the Trump administration increased the direct CCC payments by $14.5 billion, plus another $1.6 billion in related aid, to further offset the impact of the tariffs on American farmers.[17] An additional $16 billion in farm aid was allocated in July 2019.[18]
    U.S. lifting the steel and aluminum tariffs on Canada and Mexico on May 20, 2019, joining Australia and Argentina in being the only nations exempted from the regulations.[19][20] However, on May 30, Trump unilaterally announced his intention to impose a 5 percent tariff on all imports from Mexico beginning on June 10, with tariffs increasing to 10 percent on July 1, and by another 5 percent each month for three months, "until such time as illegal migrants coming through Mexico, and into our Country, STOP," adding illegal immigration as a condition for U.S.-Mexico tariff negotiations. The move was seen as threatening the ratification of the United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement (USMCA), the North American trade deal set to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).[21] The tariffs were averted on June 7.[22]
    A May 2019 analysis conducted by CNBC found Trump's tariffs are equivalent to one of the largest tax increases in the U.S. in decades.[23][24][25][26]
    Between President Trump's 2017 inauguration and 2019, the U.S.'s trade deficit had grown by $119 billion. In March 2019, the U.S. Department of Commerce stated that in 2018 the trade deficit reached $621 billion, the highest it had been since 2008.[183]
    Tariffs imposed then lifted then imposed then lifted then imposed again; retaliatory tariffs against U.S. products; massive bailouts to farmers; long term loss of foreign markets by U.S. producers and massive increase in the trade deficit. As always, failure seems to be a core "organizing principle" for Republicans.
