All the more reason for the Dems to pack the courts once they retake power.

It's a disaster to democrats. Economy booming.



Corporate economy is doing okay. S&P growth under Trump has been good but Obama still has him beat. Income inequality is rising. A third of middle class adultscan't afford a $400 emergency. Trump's tariffs are the equivalent to one of the largest tax increases in decades, and is about to hit consumers. American Farmers aren't doing so hot, either, even with their massive welfare bailouts. Even Donald Trump himself thinks the economy does better when Democrats are in office.

Quote:

Unemployment low. At all time low for women and minorities.



This is true. However, unemployment fell every single year during Obama's eight years. (P.S., Republican presidents don't exactly have the best record when it comes to unemployment numbers.) Also under Obama, median household income, weekly earnings, job openings, home prices, and corporate profits all increased. Unfortunately so did welfare recipients, but illegal immigrant apprehensions at the border, as well as the illegal immigrant population in the U.S. both decreased.

Quote:

Respect regained amongst nations that was lost during the Obama farce.



Literally the exact opposite has happened. Respect for the U.S. was not lost under Obama. That is a right-wing fantasy with zero basis in fact.

Quote:

This is a disaster for democrats that need a return to the poverty, hopelessness, unemployment, divisiveness of the previous 8 years so they can pretend they can fix the problems they cause.



Poverty was generally trending downward during Obama's presidency, and as we saw above, unemployment went down every single year. "Hopelessness" and "divisiveness" are self-imposed states of being, so if that's how you felt while Obama was in office, you have no one to blame but yourself. Maybe you should take some personal responsibility for your own feelings instead of blaming others.

Maybe if they turned off Fox News and started living in the real world, they'd stop believing the lies.

Mnuchin Refuses House Subpoena to Release Trump’s Tax Returns

“In reliance on the advice of the Department of Justice, we have determined that the committee’s request lacks a legitimate legislative purpose, and … the department is therefore not authorized to disclose the requested returns and return information,” Mnuchin said in the letter to committee Chairman Richard Neal.

They won't leak, either. They're locked
in a file cabinet in a locked room and
only two people have the keys. It's
that way for all presidents.

"Mnuchin accused Democrats of “weaponizing” the IRS to get Trump’s tax returns for political gain."

Duh, ya think?

This is hilarious because they're tacitly admitting that there is something seriously damaging to Trump in his tax returns. If they were straight-up normal above-the-board tax returns, there would be zero political gain to the Democrats if they were released, and in fact would probably hurt Democrats if the returns were released and there was nothing wrong with them.

The fact that they're trying to keep them under lock and key is pretty damning and indicative of Trump having something to hide.

EDIT: On the other hand, it's also possible that Trump's tax returns are fine and he's hiding them as a hail mary play before the next election. He'll release them at the last minute, everyone will see there's nothing wrong, and Trump is banking on that to give him a slight boost in popularity to win re-election. Trump is pretty stupid, though, so I really don't think this is what he's planning.

I was thinking about this also.

Yes, you would have to both give Trump credit for clever planning instead of being rash and kneejerky, AND also that he's some sort of admirable businessman which normal moral people admire.

Yeah, no. All presidents returns, past and present,
are kept locked in the same room and have
been for decades. For obvious reasons.
