I did not vote for him last election - likely will not next election, though  he has not been as bad as he could be.   And, of course, it could have been worse - it could have been Hillary.


But the point being, I can understand the dislike of him.   But can folk express, in words, why?     For example - his treatment of women - can I say it is uniquely different than Kennedy or Johnson?  Different in degree or in transparency perhaps, but all three cheated.


So, what is uniquely different?  If it could be put into words.

The GDP hasn't grown at an annual rate of 3% or greater under Trump.  SORRY FACTS.

Those are quarterly growth rates, wale.  In fact, per the article you copy-pasted from and linked, that 2014 (under Obama) GDP growth rate was well above 4%.

If one looks back at the quarterly GDP growth rates over the course of Obama's presidency, one can easily see many quarters where GDP growth is 3% or greater.

‐ Obama is the only U.S. chief executive in history not to preside over even a single year with 3 percent GDP growth, as the Institute for Policy Innovation’s Tom Giovanetti observes:

‘From 1790 to 2000, U.S. real GDP growth averaged 3.79 percent,’ entrepreneur Louis Woodhill explained at RealClearMarkets. He expects final figures to show that ‘2015 will have been the tenth year in a row that real GDP growth came in at under 3.0 percent.’

True enough for all past presidents.  At this point during the Trump presidency, there has not yet been a single year with a 3 percent GDP growth.  We'll just have to wait and see if that statement, that Obama is the only such president, remains true.

love how the leftists say that Trump is ignorant, stupid, arrogant, crazy... etc.... 


and yet he beat the crap out of how many presidential candidates??  


so, who is kinda stupid??  yeah.. it would be the leftists... 



and more winning from Trump:  

MORE LIKE THIS, PLEASE: Nixing Regulations Saved Taxpayers $1.3 Billion This Year.

That $1.3 billion number is actually double the goal that Trump had set for these savings, according to the Washington Times. Casey Mulligan, chief economist at Trump’s Council of Economic Advisers, told the newspaper that the reason the figure wound up being double the administration’s goal was because Barack Obama’s administration had actually far underestimated just how much its regulations were costing Americans.

“President Trump is not getting rid of all regulations by any means,” Mulligan said. “But some of the most problematic ones, he’s getting rid of them.”

The savings are nice, but the ripple effects of increased competition and innovation are the major benefit. So keep cutting that red tape




the leftists don't give a shit about helping the American people... don't give a shit about Americans saving money... nope. 

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.....except for the election of Donald Trump.

Simple!

Obama policies ran counter to economic growth as he focused on putting more people on the public dime. he spent MORE effort discouraging investment and free enterprise and thought that governemt regulation/ control of the economy would spur growth and it didn't.

trump has removed burdensome and punitive regultaions, freed up investment capital and has the confdence of the business community to create an environment conducive to investment.

No candidate won the majority of the popular vote last presidential election.    Hillary won the plurality of the popular vote, Trump the majority of the electoral vote.


Frankly, she could have won the majority of the electoral votes - if she had not shot herself in the foot.

On the contrary, it is you who writes nonsense.  The electoral college was designed to subvert democracy which the founding fathers feared. Subsequently it was used to keep the niggers down where the racists wanted them to be.

So you live in a nation that is not democratic.

And still nothing claimed about what, if anything, makes Trump unique as a president.


I would suggest that his flaws are more transparent.    Not that the others did not have flaws - but just not as transparent.    Part of that is Trump - part of it may be due to the technological age we live it.

Ok so nothing unique about Trump's behaviour (his personality perhaps, which I think is more in your face type of thing).


The election itself may have been more unique.    No one won the majority of the popular vote (and I doubt anyone in their right mind will disagree with that).  But that has happened before.   What might have been unique is that Hillary won the plurality of popular vote, but lost the election, with Trump having won the majority of the electoral vote.   That is I think unique - and it does grate on several folk - but again, not an issue with Trump really.

Putting America and Americans first.  Re-doing NAFTA  - and the leftists and leftist media said it could not be done.... 



Canada compromises on trade with US, Mexico

CBS News:

The United States and Canada announced late Sunday they'd reached a deal for Canada to stay in the North American trade pact with the United States and Mexico. The announcement was made an hour before a White House-imposed deadline of midnight on Sept 30.

In a joint statement, U.S.Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland said the accord would be renamed the USMCA (United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement).

They asserted that USMCA would result in freer markets and fairer trade.

"USMCA will give our workers, farmers, ranchers, and businesses a high-standard trade agreement that will result in freer markets, fairer trade and robust economic growth in our region," the joint statement said. "It will strengthen the middle class, and create good, well-paying jobs and new opportunities for the nearly half billion people who call North America home."

The agreement gives U.S. farmers greater access to the Canadian dairy market. But it keeps a North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) dispute-resolution process that the U.S. wanted to jettison and offers Canada protection if President Trump goes ahead with plans to impose tariffs on cars, trucks and auto parts imported into the U.S.


The president took to Twitter early Monday to sing the deal's praises:



Donald J. Trump
@realDonaldTrump
Congratulations to Mexico and Canada!5:56 AM - Oct 1, 2018
Twitter Ads info and privacy
In another tweet, Mr. Trump said the new agreement "greatly opens markets to our Farmers and Manufacturers, reduce[s] Trade Barriers to the U.S. and will bring all three Great Nations closer together in competition with the rest of the world."



Donald J. Trump
@realDonaldTrump
....deficiencies and mistakes in NAFTA, greatly opens markets to our Farmers and Manufacturers, reduces Trade Barriers to the U.S. and will bring all three Great Nations together in competition with the rest of the world. The USMCA is a historic transaction!5:53 AM - Oct 1, 2018
Twitter Ads info and privacy
Senior administration officials speaking with CBS News called the pact a "big win" for the U.S.Canadian and Mexican officials praised it.....

It looks like a much fairer deal for the US than the old NAFTA deal.  It should also reassure the markets in all three countries.   Texas did much better in the old deal than many of the states in teh Midwest.  While Texas will continue to do the same deals with Mexico it has in the past those Midwestern states will probably benefit more than they did under the old agreement.


Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.....except for the election of Donald Trump.

You keep comparing quarterly figures with annual figures, which makes no mathematic or statistical sense and is intellectually dishonest.


So far in Trump's presidency, the GDP growth rate figures are little changed, whether comparing annual to annual figures or quarterly to quarterly figures.
