The Trump Economy Needs To Be Attacked By Democrats

First of all there is no great Trump economy. There is only the momentum of the Obama economy, which the Republicans fought tooth and nail to hinder, and which Trump inherited and has been busy running into the ground with his infantile trade war games. Yes, Democrats, hit on Trump for bungling Obama’s rescue of Republican economic incompetence, incompetence, which Trump is reviving big-time.

We all know that since taking up space in front of the White House TV, Trump has had only one significant accomplishment, besides packing the Supreme Court with defilers of women. Money badly needed for the national good of human and physical infrastructure, money that would generate jobs and really juice the economy has been frittered away on huge tax breaks for corporations to buy back stock and on the supper rich to stuff in their offshore bank accounts — doing nothing remotely good.

And since this borrowed give away to the well off created a huge deficit, we hear not a peep from traditional Republican deficit hawks. Maybe its because this new mindless Republican base that the GOP spent 30 years dog whistling into existence has turned into a Trump cult following. Therefore the Republican Wall Street Shills are powerless to act, beyond handing their benefactors a onetime windfall of cash at taxpayer’s expense.

Bottom line is that blowing up the myth of Trump’s marvelous economy needs to be a top Democratic campaign issue. Yes, to expose Trump’s perceived strength, his economy, as a devastating weakness is the way to torpedo the fool of state.
