Trump vehemently criticizes anyone who disagrees with him or questions his actions and their motives. He is far too ignorant to realize that words have power to create good and evil. Today, Christmas Eve, the Dow Industrials and the S&P plunged lower than at any other time in history on this day. It’s related to Trump’s ill-advised attacks on the Fed which slightly raised its prime rate. Trump has been discussing how to remove Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell.
The Dow plummeted 653 points, falling below 22,000, and the S&P lost 20 percent of its value. Trump, the supposed author of “The Art of the Deal” is an idiot and has bankrupted his own businesses multiple times, including formerly ‘foolproof’ casinos, and is now attempting to do the same to our economy. His tariffs, “tax reform,” and his attacks against corporate and business leaders are endangering a recovering economy.
Trump knows nothing, has accomplished nothing, and has been exposed as the world’s biggest con-man.
Of course, Trump attempted to misdirect the facts and cover-up another of his many mistakes.
“The only problem our economy has is the Fed. They don’t have a feel for the Market, they don’t understand necessary Trade Wars or Strong Dollars or even Democrat Shutdowns over Borders. The Fed is like a powerful golfer who can’t score because he has no touch – he can’t putt!” Trump tweeted.
Trump was advised not to implement tariffs. His tax reform will add trillions to the national debt. Recent actions including removing our military from Syria, firing Jim Mattis, and shutting down the government have made the stock market nervous, and that is the worst reaction it can have.
Trump is officially President “Dumbass” today.
