Trump is definitely not the greatest debater. Good thing that's not his job, and he is crushing it at his actual job. You know, giving Americans the best quality of life in 20 years and highest wage growth in US history.


If you say so. The rest of us will continue living in actual, objective reality. The one where an incompetent reality TV star won the presidency because of a generation who gets their news from Facebook.

Lol.

I just quoted you facts.

Quality of life is the highest it has been since 9/11. Highest average wage growth in US history happened under Trump.

Fact Check This: Quality Of Life Is Up Sharply Under Trump

In the 17 years IBD has been compiling this index, it's averaged 56.2. Under President Obama, it averaged just 53.7. Even if you only include Obama's second term, it was well below the 17-year average.

Under Trump? The Quality of Life Index has averaged 59.3. That's a 10% increase over the average during the Obama years.

To be sure, there's a partisan element to this. Republicans tend to rate their quality of life higher than Democrats when there's a Republican in the White House, and vice versa. But look at independents: Their quality of life averaged 52 under Obama. It's averaging 58.8 under Trump — a 13% bump.

If all you have is that one metric, I'm calling BS. If you want to prove what you say, show exactly what policies Trump has instituted, how they affected things like wage growth and quality of life, and why they had that effect.

If you can't do that, all you are doing is taking Donald Trump at his word. And Donald Trump has a habit of saying things he wants to be true, then believing they are true because he thinks he's too smart to be wrong.

In that sense, he's not that different from his supporters.

Wage growth, unemployment, stock market, etc. Pretty much every economic measure is doing better. Trades are booming.

Yes, liberal cities like SF, Portland, and LA are covered in sh*t and homeless camps.... but you run those cities, not us.

If you think Presidential policy runs the economy you are clueless. Consumer confidence does.

The last time we had hourly pay workers see a rise this steep it was coming out of a recession, and Trump is doing it on what Obama told us was a strong economy.

Hourly pay earned by the typical employee rose sharply in February, pushing the increase in wages over the past year to a 10-year high of 3.4%.

www.marketwatch.com...

The problem with the 2009 hourly wage growth is that it was due to people losing better paying salary jobs. Average wage growth went DOWN in 2009.


2008 41,334.97
2009 40,711.61


When you include everyone, including straight salary workers and not just hourly wage we have the highest wage growth in US history.



2015 48,098.63
2016 48,642.15
2017 50,321.89

Those are my metrics. What metrics are you using?


The middle class is booming under Trump, on every metric.

It is all a false economy until the debt starts declining.

I really hope either Bernie or Tulsi get the nomination. It'd be fun to watch them debate Trump while his brain turns to goo trying to formulate an intelligent response.



So, I see you've never heard Sanders attempt to speak. It's like encountering a cantankerous old coot that's not just irate, but senile enough to make the speech uncomfortable to listen to.

I agree, but that takes Congress to do.

It takes Congress and the president which neither for a very long time has even attempted.

This country will collapse sooner or later and I think they all know it and are taking what they can now.

Congress can do it without the President. The President can not do it without Congress.

Best case is both working together, but neither party will do anything.

When that happens I will move to the Philippines.
