In my humble opinion, the American people (and the world) can happily co- exist with all sorts of influences including high interest rates, inflation and war.
Our business climate, and the rest of the world cannot stand the day-to-day volatility of the current tweeter.

It is stability the world seeks as does our economy. The leader of the free world is unstable in his approach, which makes it impossible for investors and governments to forecast and prepare. He is unstable, and a TV president.

1st tweet is a miss. Xi is by no means a great leader. He's a dark and sinister force on our planet.

2nd tweet is a hit......though Xi, as a dictator, would never meet with these people.


Donald J. Trump
@realDonaldTrump
I know President Xi of China very well. He is a great leader who very much has the respect of his people. He is also a good man in a "tough business." I have ZERO doubt that if President Xi wants to quickly and humanely solve the Hong Kong problem, he can do it. Personal meeting?"

"If President Xi would meet directly and personally with the protesters, there would be a happy and enlightened ending to the Hong Kong problem. I have no doubt!"

Ummmm.....actually, "happy ending" refers to something else.....Please reference Bill Clinton in this area. Is Xi bringing condoms? Maybe that should have been in the "chicken sex" thread.

Prez has exactly zero to do with interest rates. Current prez thinks he should but that's a separate topic.

So when the economy is doing good, Trump takes the credit.

When it's doing bad, it's a conspiracy.

Poor child.

In three years, there has not been one agreement on trade, and the only agreement pending is with Mexico and Canada which is a virtual paperback version of the NAFTA agreement. Yet to be ratified-possible September.

Eh, more than zero. They get to name the trigger man (Fed Chair).

Ironically enough, Trump fired the most dovish fed chair, Janet Yellen, who would have likely kept rates lower than his hand picked replacement. But just because Obama hired her, she had to go

And I'm not opposed to buying Greenland, for the right price. What's it's blue book value?
If that doesn't work, can we lease Finland?

Not sure you'd want Finland. I happen to know of at least one deplorable that lives there...might even be a basket of them....

Little leaven leavens the whole lot.

No I am not saying you but I guarantee when it does bounce back someone on CNN or MSNBC will attribute it to some policy Obama passed.
But we both know it's the hard-working people of United States, not the last two presidents that are responsible for our economic fortunes. Though bad policy can exasperate the problem. Over regulation during Obama. Horribly low interest rates lobbied for by Trump.

I like this idea! It should be pretty cheap if you calculate by the acre, and it's proximitt to China has YUGE strategic value.

Trade with SK would be instant, as well as development and jobs. It wouldnt be dificult to get things turned around in NK, once you got through to the people who have believed the decades of propaganda against the west, ofcourse.
