Donald Trump keeps saying the economy is doing great and points to the stock market. Yet, regular people are not doing great to say the very least. The problem is that the corporations have sucked all the money they can find out of their businesses to feed ever hungrier stockholders. The stock market was at 8,000 around 20 years ago, and it has virtually tripled since then. That is why people’s wages have remained stagnant for two decades. What POTUS said in his tweets is galling.
The commander-in-chief was eager to get his tweets out this morning. He claimed his “great” economy would have pushed his poll numbers to 65% if it were not for the Mueller report:
‘Without the ILLEGAL Witch Hunt, my poll numbers, especially because of our historically “great” economy, would be at 65%. Too bad! The greatest Hoax in American History.’
The president went on to tweet about his “complete demolition and rebuilding” of a “brand new wall.” He neglected to mention that it costs Americans one billion dollars per mile, and he shifted money from a sorely-needed airport luggage security system to his useless wall:
Much of the Wall being built at the Southern Border is a complete demolition and rebuilding of old and worthless barriers with a brand new Wall and footings. Problem is, the Haters say that is not a new Wall, but rather a renovation. Wrong, and we must build where most needed….
Then, Trump noted that he was bringing the wall up to his “very high standard.” Of course, his former right-hand woman at the Trump Organization, Barbara Res, just said that he was cheap and bought the cheapest products for his buildings:
‘Also, tremendous work is being done on pure renovation – fixing existing Walls that are in bad condition and ineffective, and bringing them to a very high standard!’
