    Ever heard of momentum?

    Ever heard about how it takes YEARS for some policies to affect anything in the economy. Trump did not pass any economic policies that would have affected economy within first 2 years.



    I can't speak for "leftists" but I personally will agree that it would not be Trump's to own. If recession however will be a direct impact of tariff wars (according to economists), then Trump will have played some role in it. Still, it won't be anywhere close to 100% his fault or the fault of tariffs I am sure.
    Yes, many economists use the supertanker analogy when describing how economies work. You can't stop a supertanker on a dime...it just keeps on rolling until momentum is lost.

    If he is reelected and the economy is still rolling after 7 years in office, then yes.

    The economy has been kept artificially inflated with low interest rates and quantitative easing. Postponing the inevitable correction will only lead to a bigger crash. Maybe the biggest ever. So don't open any champagne just yet.

    For the first time in US history, a decade will pass without the country falling into a recession
    Wasn't Obama president for most of that?

    Pretty much everyone who was paying taxes got a tax cut. The notable exception would be rich people in blue states, who the left are whining about. Poor babies, they got their SALT capped at 10K. Most people couldn't scrape up 10K in SALT deductions.

    I wonder if the more you suppress a recession, the worse it is when it arrives.
    I agree.

    So, you're saying that history judges Bill Clinton as a horrible president because he was impeached?

    U.S. farm bankruptcies surge 24% on strain from Trump trade war


    So much winning, right?
    The economy is going great, or haven't you read? All economies have winners and losers. There is never an economy that has 100% winners.
