    He's shown time and time again that he has no idea whatsoever of economics and market forces.
    But he has a talent for saying things that his redneck base lap up as wise words.

    US First lady Melania Trump says she could be "the most bullied person" in the world, judging by "what people are saying about me."

    Wait, it gets worse...

    She also says her 'Be Best' campaign to combat online and social media bullying is in part based on what people say about her.

    and neither did Obama, and most other POTUS

    my conviction is that POTUS are not running the show, they are entertaining the gallery while the adults take care of the rest behind closed doors

    What, that she's an Eastern European former hooker who got her hooks into a rich old wanker who got her her green card?

    yes, he is a blowhard idiot, but at the end, it doesn't change a thing

    and creates entertaining value for the press and the Democrats snowflakes

    So nice, everyone wants Ivanka Trump to be the new United Nations Ambassador. She would be incredible, but I can already hear the chants of Nepotism! We have great people that want the job.

    looks like the GOP will hold the senate and lose the house. hopefully, trump will work with the dems in the house to get some things done like infrastructure development and legalizing drugs.

    here's a list of trump's accomplishments, so far: https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/w...romise-keeping

    here are a few i've selected:

    https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/w...romise-keeping

    But the White House believes that despite a lack of media coverage of his accomplishments, supporters know about them and will head to the voting polls to help the GOP maintain control of the House and keep the president on what CNN dubbed a “winning streak.”


    In the Washington Post Friday, columnist Marc Thiessen agreed and said that Trump has proven to be successful at keeping his campaign promises. He wrote, “The fact is, in his first two years, Trump has compiled a remarkable record of presidential promise-keeping.”



    • For the first time in more than a decade, growth is projected to exceed 3 percent over the calendar year.
    • More Americans are employed now than ever before in our history.

    Small business optimism has hit historic highs.


    • 95 percent of U.S. manufacturers are optimistic about the future, the highest ever.





    • Confidence in the economy is near a two-decade high, with 51 percent rating the economy as good or excellent.


    • Over $450 billion dollars has already poured back into the U.S., including more than $300 billion in the first quarter of 2018.


    • Achieved massive deregulation at a rapid pace, completing 22 deregulatory actions to every one regulatory action during his first year in office.


    • More than 6 million of American workers have received wage increases, bonuses, and increased benefits thanks to tax cuts.


    • Established a National Council for the American Worker to develop a national strategy for training and retraining America’s workers for high-demand industries.


    • $6 billion in new funding to fight the opioid epidemic.


    • Secured $1.6 billion for border wall construction in the March 2018 omnibus bill.
    • Construction of a 14-mile section of border wall began near San Diego.


    Negotiating and renegotiating better trade deals, achieving free, fair, and reciprocal trade for the United States.

    Did a non-native user of English write this? Maybe it's OK, but it reads weird to me.

    lol?, snaff.

    why is it all you can usually offer on td is one or two sentences that usually have incorrect syntax and grammar and superficial commentary?

    anyways, if the dems take the house, the calculus will change, obviously.

    trump is practical and will reach across the isle to get some things done that right wingers in the house don't want to do, IMO.

    we shall see.

    the republicans might even be able to hold the house by a seat or two with trump campaigning hard, holding big rallies where there are tight races.

    Why are you quoting an article with completely subjective opinions? Where's the proof?

    If everything is so rosy economically speaking, could you explain the stock market crash?

    topper: you're so used to the mainstream media only posting negative news about trump (studies say it's over 90 percent negative) that when you see a list of positives, you say "HOW CAN THAT BE?".

    seriously, topper, choose one (any one).

    which one do you think is false?

    Is that why Ford is having record layoffs? Could you point out an article that confirms this?

    Who is the 51 %?

    How has this benefitted Americans? Did it benefit the everyday Joe or big business?

    Shall I keep asking?
