Ironic how he said we might prefer to meddle in another country's election than end up with a Nicolas Maduro. The Russians meddled in ours specifically to give us an American version of Maduro (except friendly to them).

Ross Parkel I'm sorry, but that isn't right. I wasn't a Trump fan, I loved Obama, so I would have loved more than anything for you to be correct. But, the growth we have seen is thanks to his administration. The tax cuts, the cuts to regulation, and Wallstreet's trust in him, are all lending a hand to the "booming" economy. I don't know how long it will last, and it sure as hell isn't good for the environment, BUT, it's good for America's wallet. If he keeps it up, and if he gets started on the wall, he might have a shot at winning in 2020 despite the whole Russia thing. Be prepared for that. If you want to read about it, Google it. CNBC did a special on it last year as well: https://www.cnbc.com/2018/09/07/how-trump-has-set-economic-growth-on-fire.html

Shannon OC No the economy is flourishing mostly due to policies that the Obama Administration implemented before Obama left office. It took about 2-3 years to see the effects. Trump has just gotten a lot of nice windfall from it.

when he called the government employees an elite part of the population that must have been tongue in boot, because this episode is all about the state's incompetence.
