Perhaps you are unfamiliar with the simple concept of momentum.

Momentum is a logical fallacy. I am familiar with statistical TREND.

“Trump has been riding 8 years of Obama’s upward momentum.”

Seriously? I’ve heard this talking point a dozen times over the last few weeks. Do you understand that even if it was true, you are ADMITTING by using it that Trump is succeeding, and not failing?

Let me restate what you just said. “ “Obama succeeded, and Trump is succeeding.”

OK, fine.

I could show you the numbers now and demonstrate to you that Obama had no upward trend, that the last Obama term was an erratic economic mess, and was actually turning back DOWN when Trump took office….. but there’s no need. You’ve already admitted that Trump is succeeding.

But Trump is working hard to to run the nation back into the last Republican inspired economic ditch.

Well, I guess he’s not doing a very good job at that, then, because you already said he was succeeding.
