*Government debt hits a record $66 trillion, 80% of global GDP. 1-2019*

Where's the greatness of this smoke-n-mirror president? 
He's a deceitful Putin stooge because of his prior debt and ruble allegiance, and willing to gamble with America's security. Wake up, kids, cheeseburger daddy's using your credit cards to pump and dump the US economy. Assholes.
Five months ago the economy was doing great....but now reality has settled in..... I just opened my year end statement from Fidelity.....down 3% for the YEAR!.
Based on what I have seen for Trump and his childish decision making, his inability to understand basic concepts, I believe that we are entering another hard economic downturn, hopefully not as worse at the huge downturn when Bush was in office in 2006.......but no doubt about it, it's coming and it's going to be painful.

With over 48 million people living below the poverty line, is Trump' economy a success? The number is living below the poverty line about 43 million in 2016. Try telling a child who is starving that the economy is doing well. Kids living below the poverty line are the foot soldiers for Grand Theft Auto in real life. Well done Trump

Trump's economy is a here and now economy. Unfortunately, for America, the here and now of Donald Trump serves ONLY Donald Trump and what he has accomplished through his here and now economy is to saddle generations of Americans (that's YOU) with the soaring and debilitating public debt that is guaranteed to lead to slowing growth of jobs and incomes at home for many, many, many years to come. Trump is presently salting the ground of America's economic future to satisfy his ego and his family's present and future fortunes. He will be dead and gone from this world, his family will have made billions off his presidency while America will be catapulted into a ressession the likes of which no president, black, white, male or female will be able to dig the country out of.

Yes there was a upward trend in the economy towards Obama’s era, but it took Trump to boost it higher because of 2 important things that Obama lacked:

1) Deregulation - Whether good or bad, basically gave more clearances to allow companies to go on.
2) Confidence - Business men like the business man mentality which Trump gave them.

The only thing Trump needs to be concerned about is inflation & the interest rates; most of the wealth isn’t true wealth but the perception based on borrowed credit. This is his biggest economic enemy.
