Disagree....Unemployment is 4.6%, GDP in Q3 3.2%..Gas prices are cheap. Stock Market ripping. Remember, HRC got 2.6 MILLION more votes, so the masses voting against the status quo doesn't really hold water.
Today's tweet sounds like it came from Nancy Pelosi:
"We want Boeing to make a lot of money but not that much
money," added Trump, who takes office on Jan. 20.

More people out of the workforce that in history, home ownership down, and more people on welfare than in history. You know all the stats and how bad they are.

As for the specific airplane that he spoke about, that was for him and his own use so he should be applauded for speaking up. He was trying to save the American people money

Again, a comment that does not Gybe with a capitalist society. Over the weekend it was 35% import tariffs, that's 3.5X the Nixon import tariff, that along with wage and price controls, helped send the misery index over 20%....
Steve , today's economic conditions are quite good. Inflation is dead for the time being...unemployment is 4.6%, and U-6 is at 9.5%, a low number in the past decade. GDP is growing at 3.2% . Workforce participation, and job quality are big issues, no doubt...But home ownership is a result of the housing bubble where too many families that had no business owning a home at double its intrinsic value, got foreclosed on...

Wages continue to fall. There is no shortage of labor.

Are you or any other Republicans interested in raising the minimum wage to $15/hr.? I didn't think so.

Of course, the media "never did tell us under Obama where we were and where we are" because they shy away from any negative publicity regarding their favorite leader.


Except for Fox, the left wing major media inadvertently gave Trump what he wanted - free publicity, but what they didn't figure on was that all their negative publicity actually helped promote Trump's message to the masses that were sick and tired of the status quo.

The left wing media was, and still is out of touch with what most of the states (30) wanted for a President.

While elements of the economy are doing well, there are plenty of folks out there that are either sucking on the government's teat, sitting on their asses, or hopefully looking for work.

Quote:
The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that 94,103,000 Americans were neither employed nor made any specific effort to find work in the prior four weeks.

The number of people out of the workforce ó whether for retirement, sickness, schooling or otherwise ó in December represented a slight decline of 277,000 compared to Novemberís non-participation level when 94,380,000 people were out of the workforce.

The labor force participation rate improved by 0.1 percent over Novemberís rate, however still remained at a low 62.6 percent, continuing the trend of low participation levels not seen since the seventies.

The civilian labor force also grew last month from 157,367,000 in November to 157,833,000 last month, or an increase of 466,300.

I'm not sure the word "masses" applies... HRC got the same number of votes as Obama in 2012, which was 2.6 Million more than DJT. DJT threaded the EC needle. Again, sheep and goats over humans.
