Bad in what way exactly?

Also let's not get confused, Republicans can suck with Democrats simply being worse.

Job losses in retail and manufacturing. Retail jobs are the jobs rural people have been relying on.

Lots of those retail jobs are low paying crap jobs where they split a full time job into multiple part time jobs. Without knowing more, retail job loss is actually a sign that the economy is healthier.

Most of the job gains under Obama were people trading good jobs for total crap jobs, and most of them were part time. So somehow people losing GOOD full time jobs and replacing with with crap paying part time jobs under the Democrats is GOOD ... but when people leave those jobs and go back to good jobs under Republicans it's BAD? Why are full time higher paying jobs bad?


But a recently updated study by Harvard and Princeton economists shows that 94 percent of "net job growth" -- the number of jobs created minus the number of jobs lost -- from 2005-2015 was in "alternative work."

Nearly 95% of all new jobs during Obama era were part-time, or contract

A recent study suggests alternative and temporary positions have been the driving force behind job growth of the last decade.

Any job is better than no job. In Idaho a low paying job will keep you off welfare. That's why Idahoans voted Trump. Jobs.

NAFTA and all these globalists trade policies have gutted the middle class. This is something that Trump has address and no one on the left wants to acknowledge except Bernie. However, Bernie has no solutions, just mostly whining and the rich are evil rhetoric.

Trump Killed the TPP
Trump killed the Paris Agreement (is a massive redistribution of wealth scheme and the deindustrialization of America while shipping those same industries to third worlds)
Trump wants 15% corp tax so America can gain an economic advantage over the other countries.
And is negotiating other Trade policies

Trump is addressing the root problem of the gutting of the middle class. Sure some Republicans have been bad in the past because they have embraced this Internationalism ideology that is big on the left, but Trump is trying to rectify the problem and is changing the ideology of the right.

That Trump and his administration aren't globalists is laughable.


Please elaborate, I'm curious to know why you think Trump is a globalist.

The problem under Republicans is because they attempt to balance the budget and leverage high interest rates which is good long term for the economy, but bad short term.

The Democrats instead are more Machiavellian. They utilize extremely low interest rates and massive deficit spending. It's like getting a new 100k credit card in the mail. You will be baller status in the first few months, but it will come back to haunt you. The Dems are good at manipulating the markets, but this is a reckless strategy.

Trump on the other hand, recognize the Dems methods. That is why he wants massive infrastructure spending, low interest rates, but get this, he wants to double down on it, by reducing taxes and eliminating excessive regulations. If they does all three the economy will shoot through the roof.

The Dems benefit from low interest rates and deficit spending, but they offset it by more regulations and taxes, which washes the gains. If Trump leverage from both sides, he could be the greatest president ever at least economically wise.

You think he can change the hearts of the Wall Street globalists with meetings and tax cuts.? Sorry, but that is really gullible.

I don't see wallstreet as the main cause of the problem. They are just trying to make as much money as they can under the system we have. They are essentially a byproduct of the central banking system and the rules that they apply. Reform the Central Banking System and you can get your agendas to work, but that is a tall task for anyone including presidents.

Wallstreet so far has been doing good under Trump because they speculate his policies would be great for the American economy, so they injected 3 trillion into the stock market by expecting great profits in return. It benefits everyone, even the middle class with 401k investments growing. It's not a crime to make a profit.

Your issue is probably similar to mine, which involves the Central Bankers, Feds, IMF, World Bankers, they are on top of the totem pole. However, I don't expect Trump to be able to take them on, because they are more powerful then him or any country. He can only help the US economy. He is not powerful enough and does not have the backing of the people to take on a tall task of reforming the Banking System which is intertwine all around the world. The masses are just not ready and awake enough for it to happen. They are being diverted to other problems instead of looking at the source of the problem.

401k are only for people with good income or good jobs. That does not help the rural economy that voted for him.

Bankers are Wall Street too. All Wall Street have more money than anytime in history. But they have lots more coming to support their globalist agenda. Yuge tax cuts and purging sick and poor from one sixth of economy.

The market is not ready for correction under Trump because if his economic policies, it would be bad to sell now. Otherwise you would be left behind. Now if Trump doesn't get his economic policies through, the Dems obstruct, and the feds start jacking up rates like madmen, than there will be a huge correction.

Trump can prevent the correction, by utilizing deficit spending (In Progress), lower taxes (In Progress), eliminating excessive regulation (Checked), keep interest rates low (only problem area i foresee, feds hiking rates to slow down inflation). The correction can be prevented by Trump economics. If economic goes through, you would be a fool to sell off your stocks because you would be left behind when the stock market shoots off into the sky and thus lose billions betting against Trump.

All the doom and gloom people will be wrong. A correction under a Democrat would be more likely because of their globalists economic tendencies, but I don't see it happening under Trump, unless the feds intervene and jack the crap out of interest rates which would then stall the economy. This is the only problem area I can foresee.

Trust me, I think like wallstreet and they think like me. They are not going to bet against Trump, it would be a stupid economic move.

True, maybe the Republican establishment can help obstruct. They seem to be stalling his economics for some stupid reason.
