RE: Trump's military parade on the 4th.
Trump has no grasp of our country's history (without a teleprompter apparently) nor its historical values-virtues.

Read the text of Ronald Reagan's farewell speech when he was leaving the WH about what "makes America great."

Boy has the Republican party changed since the days of the "Great Communicator" who brought down the Berlin Wall and "won" the Cold War.

That was clear from the moment he rolled out his stupid dogwhistle of a slogan.

Yes, unfortunately there are many Americans-citizens who believe Trump is or will "MAGA."

What’s sad is that he and his circle think the TelePrompter going out is a legit excuse.

Outside his family - Junior, Ivanka, Kushner et al - I doubt his "circle" believes that.

They're just afraid to call him on it.

Evil dictator’s can be that scary. If they call him out they’ll be sent to the Iranian front.

More than half serious.

Interesting comparison of the stock market numbers:

Under Trump the has gone from 20000 to 26500, an increase of 6500 - not bad.

Under Obama it went from 7000 to 20000 - an increase of 13000.

Amazing what Fed Reserve bond purchases and near
zero interest rates will do

What they HAD to do in face of the Bush depression and crash.

You also forgot to point out that the stimulus had a big effect, which at the time the right decried as AWFUL because it ran up our deficit and debt. Now it's ok for Trump to increase it though.

This guy, claims jobs jobs jobs and turns around and pressures the fed to lower interest rates. That doesn't square.

It squared. Continuing growth requires low rates to fuel it. No reason to raise rates or even maintain current rate without the spectre of inflation .

We have low interest rates, as the "fueled economy" indicates. 2.25 is historically low.

No reason to LOWER, and raising in a hot economy has little or no impact, giving the fed it's needed room to work with when things slow down.

But you knew that. Maybe this "continuing growth" we're having could be applied to the federal debt that the right used to pretend to concern themselves with in the old days?! 03-idea

So you're blaming Trumps lack of job growth in relation to Obama on 2.25% interest rates? 03-lmfao

RE: Trump's military parade on the 4th.
Getting back to topic of thread -

Trump is an absolute loon. People in his government (outside his family "advisors") and "party" know it, not to mention foreign governments.

He is apparently even turning on FOX News.

Problem is there will still be millions of Americans who vote for him in 2020.

He is making George W. Bush look like one of the best chief executives we have had.

Unless Democrats can "get their act together" (which doesn't look likely right now), Trump will be re-elected.

Agree with you ess, hyperbole on my part.

But give Trump time, especially if he gets four more years.

I have (absolutely) no idea how "W" can live with himself.

He must be devoid of a conscience.

Don't disagree with you at all (in fact agree 100%) - but the issue now is, what will our current "Commander in Chief" do?

The answer seems obvious (to me).

Whatever is easy.

Whatever (he believes) will score the most short term political points.

You may be right - but I don't think he's that smart.

He believes whatever he says is "right" - even when shown to be lying (blame it on the "Fake News" or "losers" that disagree).

After all - he's Donald J. Trump, "The Donald" (and all that personal history that goes with it), duly elected (except for popular vote) President of the US.

Never been convicted, never will be in his mind. Nor his family of "advisors."

I forget who said it, but the quote was "We usually get the leaders we deserve."

There are still millions of MAGA Trumpsters who will vote for him next year.

Even if he gets us into a war - or perhaps because of.

Just like his "war" against immigrants.
