It defies logic. It ignores facts. To be unable to admit that Trump is a deeply flawed president, is quite simply to ignore reality.

Oh, I admit he’s deeply flawed. However, that does not mean that he is not the right person for where we (the US) is, at this point in time.

Dennis Prager was a no-Trumper until he won the nomination. And then, because Prager has the view (with which I agree) that we (the US) would not have survived another Obama-like presidency and still retain our national integrity.

Let me be more clear. The only thing that has been propping up our economy since the meltdown was the resilience of the US large corporations. The high tax rates have acted to snuff out economic growth in small and medium sized businesses. The financial sector has been in shambles since the meltdown due to Dodd-Frank, and has only bounced back since the election, in expectation of the cessation of regulation-gone-wild.

If the next President continued down the same path, the financial sector would have been ceased to compete with foreign competitors. Our best run businesses traditionally, the energy sector, would have been snuffed out by excessive and irrational green regulation. Capital would have continued to fly out of the country, corporations would have continued inversions over seas. The health sector would have lost its leadership as a poorly architected “universal health” scheme removed the incentive to innovate.

But, the tech sector would have continued to create new and exciting toys for the progressive millenials to play with. And thus, they would be able to continue to fiddle as Rome burned.

And it is not about the partisan politics, cause Trump is not a Pub, he is a con. He hijacked the pub party and is taking it for a ride.

Entirely possible. However, it’s also possible that the policies he will promote are exactly what we need. If that’s so, and his policies re-invigorate the economy, then I really don’t care if he gets filthy rich or not. Fair trade.

When they say Trump is faltering, they are saying he is messing with the money. And he is. He is definitely messing with America’s money for his own personal gain.

Opinions vary. Yahoo Finance, no friend of Republicans, rates his economy a B+ so far. But, more importantly, the stock market was basically in a sideways rut from February of 2015 until election day, after which it took off. The stock market is essentially an international vote of confidence in the US economy, and we bounced nearly 20% in seven months. That’s all the economically literate people in the world screaming “SHIT, THE US JUST MIGHT BE A GOOD INVESTMENT AGAIN.”
