    I saw this and I think it really deserves to be posted on a thread of its own for a dose or reality:

    I mean what did Trump actually do other than reduce taxes for the rich to the point that now 60 supersize corporations pay ZERO TAXES, including Amazon, IBM, GE, and Netflix by ballooning Federal Debt to bankruptcy levels?

    My son was out of work during the shitstain obama years. He was out of work for two years. Under Trump's leadership he found a job in two weeks making $10,000 a year more than he was.

    My step grandson found a better job and quit his old one. And he's a doper!

    Thank God for Trump is a daily phrase in this house.

    I just found out that Trump drastically reduced HB1 visas and is revoking those already granted.

    Again. Thank God for Trump.

    Your chart demonstrates that Obama took a bad thing and made it worse. Things got better after fracking, which Obama opposed.
    Trump has continued the trend of improvement.

    On the surface of it not only has Trump CONTINUED the reduction in unemployment to record low numbers, he has done so by creating better paying jobs and during the much more difficult time after most people have already gone back to work meaning these are NEW jobs!

    Something is better under Trump-maybe it is the quality of the jobs. Maybe its because he does not say "those jobs aren't coming back". For an inspirational speaker, Obama did not do much inspiring in this area.

    After the recession/financial crisis ended the rates fall drastically for 6 years and continues on into the Trump administration that what the chart shows and it cannot be denied.

    Obama did a stimulus package that cut taxes, extend unemployment benefits, and pump money into public works. He turned things around.

    bailed out two automotive giants and made them build better vehicle which were more fuel efficient and competitive with foreign competition.

    Affordable care dealt with rising health care cost and got a handle on it because health care cost was the number one cause for bankrupcy

    Regulated the banks to prevent the same thing from happening again with the financial crisises

    raised fuel efficiency standards

    Trump just inherited it

    In any case, Trump is toast. His polling numbers suck. Americans are ready for a mature adult who wants to be president for all Americans, not just the white supremacists.
    More brutal 2020 poll numbers for Trump

    What`s true is this. Trump killed a landscaping and nursery business that`s been around for 47 years.
