Why is everyone trying to talk down the economy.

So are you saying you think the numbers in the article/graphs are wrong?

I'm not talking down the economy, I'm basically saying this:

1. The economy was good and improving before trump took office.

2. The current state of the economy is due to a large number of factors, and any contribution personally made by any president is fairly minimal.

3. Any argument that we should ignore or excuse a politicians moral, ethical, or legal failings because the economy is "doing good", is a poor argument.
