I guess I should have qualified my earlier comment and suggested he ask our gainfully employed children or grandchildren how their 401k is doing...

 

I tend to overlook the "freeloaders" that live off the system.  They are likely to ask what a 401k is.  It does appear our public education system is failing our children and our country.

Asking your children and grandchildren about their 401K will get you the following answer:

 

"WHAT'S A 401K?"

 

Assigning the growth of the economy, the GDP, or one's 401K to any one president's actions is nothing but a superstition.

 

I could just as easily have pointed out quarters that have exceeded the performance of the "TRUMP THE CHUMP" economy during the Obama years (why, folks do you think, @jimc91 made a comparison with 12 quarters ago rather than some other amount of quarters???)

 

If this administration understood how the American economy works then:

 

THE TAXPAYER WOULDN'T BE PAYING 12 BILLION DOLLARS TO SOYBEAN FARMERS TO KEEP THEM AFLOAT AFTER TRUMP THE CHUMP DESTROYED "THEIR" ECONOMY.

 

If this administration understood how the American economy works then:

 

THE DEFICIT WOULDN'T BE GROWING IN ORDER TO RECTIFY ALL OF TRUMP THE CHUMP'S MISTAKES.

 

All economist agree that Presidents no more control the stock market and the economy any more than they can control the weather on a daily basis.

 

Those that think TRUMP THE CHUMP is responsible for this booming economy hold the same belief as our primitive ancestors:

 

WHEN CHIEFTAINS PLEASE THE GODS; WE GET BOUNTIFUL HARVEST.

 

Trouble is with TRUMP THE CHUMP and his minions, the gods being pleased are false gods, and the bountiful harvest is only realized by the few.

 

ASK THE SOYBEAN FARMERS.

Here's how TRUMP THE CHUMP pulls the wool over your eyes.

 

The following is a typical way TRUMP THE CHUMP has operated our economy:

 

STEP 1- Impose tariff on Chinese Products.

STEP 2- Chinese target soybeans for retaliation.

STEP 3- Our farmers damaged irrepairably by our tariffs imposed on Chinese products.

STEP 4- TRUMP THE CHUMP promises 12 billion dollars of OUR TAX MONEY to offset damage.

STEP 5- TRUMP THE CHUMP claims, after the 12 billion dollar promise to offset an action he caused, to "HAVE THE BACKS" of all farmers.

 

If one would notice, he operates his personal life this way. He operates his international diplomacy this way. AND on and on and on.

 

TRUMP THE CHUMP is the worst kind of MORON....... A DANGEROUS ONE!!!!!!

 

 


Well I am happy to report that people that subscribe to this type of thought are no longer in charge...

 

Ask your children and grandchildren how their 401k looks this quarter compared to 12 quarters ago.  I am thankful we have people in charge that actually understand how the American economy works and what fuels it.

 

The meeting this past week that President Trump had with the leader of the EU proved his negotiation strategy is in fact working.  This also proves the above posters rant is nothing more that pure emotionally driven hog wash...

 

Try to relax @nctarheel and enjoy the ride.  It's the economy...

Trump, EU agree to work on lowering tariffs, averting a potential trade war

  • President Donald Trump on Wednesday announced that he had secured concessions from Europe, averting a potential trade war.
  • The Dow Jones Industrial Average popped Wednesday afternoon, rising more than half a percent on the news.
  • The Europeans agreed to lower industrial tariffs and import more U.S. soybeans.

U.S. stocks rallied Wednesday, erasing earlier losses, after President Trump and European officials met in Washington for trade talks.

 

The Dow Jones Industrial Average jumped 172.16 points, or 0.68%, to 25,414.10. The S&P 500 gained 25.67 points to close at 2,846.07. The Nasdaq Composite was up 91.47 points at 7,932.24.

 

Trump welcomed Jean-Claude Juncker and Cecilia Malmstrom at the White House on Wednesday afternoon to discuss tariffs between the U.S. and European Union. In an unexpected announcement after the meeting, Trump announced that the U.S. and EU agreed to work toward zero tariffs and zero subsidies on non-auto industrial goods and avoid any new tariffs while talks are ongoing. Trump had threatened to slap tariffs on European car imports.

 

The EU also agreed to buy more U.S. soybeans, while the U.S. will work toward resolving tariffs recently imposed on European steel and aluminum.

 

“The catalyst to unleashing a higher multiple could be the removal of the trade war fears, but today is just the first step,” said Chris Zaccarelli, chief investment officer for Independent Advisor Alliance.

 

“Going forward, negotiations with Mexico and Canada will be very important, and the 800 pound gorilla in the room is China, which also serves as the Trump administration’s most difficult challenge.”

 

Earlier Wednesday, Trump said he “hopes to work out a fair and reciprocal trade deal between the U.S. and Europe." Junker told reporters as he sat down with Trump that Europe and the United States were allies and “needed to work together.”

 

Also ahead of the meeting, Larry Kudlow, a top economic adviser to President Trump, was upbeat that both sides could come to a decision that avoids a trade war.

 

“They have a positive attitude going into this. Our team has a positive attitude,” Kudlow said on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” Wednesday morning. He also called the meeting “absolutely crucial.”

 

Trump has threated up to a 25% tariff on European cars and parts and the EU said it would retaliate by slapping tariffs on $20 billion worth of U.S. goods.

 

Wednesday is a busy day for corporate earnings reports. Results have already been released by companies including Boeing, General Motors, Coca-Cola and UPS. Facebook will report its latest quarterly results after the closing bell.

No it is really surrendering again by Dictator Trump. Polls out today show Dictator Trump now under water in states that gave him his electoral win.He would loose the electoral college if the election was held today. There has been strong opposition from all sectors of our businesses against the Tariffs on auto as there are about 40% average foreign parts in every car made in the US so car prices would go way up, and there would be a lot of US job losses. Trump backs down and as the statement tells us nothing new will happen, but tariffs in place will stay for now. Dictator Trump will back down on them to as we are seeing the price increases are starting to hit, and businesses in the US are being hurt and some laying off people. In the end we will be back to where we were before with what I think will be some improvements that were being worked on before Dictator Trump messed it all up. Our enablers understand nothing about this subject but just post what they are told to be their leaders. The enablers are the most dangerous group of people in the US and all thinking people should oppose Dictator Trump and them. Do not bet on the soy beans purchase. If China stops buying from us and the price tanks further yes they buy for cheap price and no other place to buy as the other places are selling to China. 


https://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2018/07/25/president_trump_makes_trade_announcement_with_ec_...


Here  you see why the enablers are the most dangerous group in the USA. They take an article and try and use it to support Dictator Trump sundering to the EU due to the fact he is starting to loose support from his enablers. The experts have defined the enablers for us, and there are various degrees of enablers. The lower end will be the last to go.


Yep, us enablers understand that negotiations are not "sundering".

 

Maybe that is why we are not among the 47%.


The enablers do not say anything that makes sense, but it make them feel good and fills their 20 hour day posting as required by their leaders. They do not even understand bye bye. Once again we see why the enablers are the most dangerous group in the USA as they take us to dictatorship under Trump. It just recreates Germany with Hitler.

All Der Trumper did was agree to not ESCALUATE his current Trade War with the EU at this time. He's still fixin' to really smack down China, and if you think $12Billion will save our bean and pork producers, you don't follow the ag news.

 

He's just been distracted trying to start a war with Iran - soon as he's gfot that going, he'll be back to punishing our allies and kissing up to Vlad the PupPetPOTUS Master.


Understanding how negotiations work is intelligent.

 

Vlad the PupPetPOTUS Master is childish.
