-The tariffs have really
bitten into China. They haven’t bitten
into us at all. Except for the reporters that
wanna make it look that way, but they don’t understand
what’s happening. -They hand you a budget, and it’s gonna blow the deficit
through the roof, you’re gonna hold
the line, correct? -I’m gonna hold the line.
-Let me also ask you about the debt, sir,
because it’s gone from a shade under $20 trillion,
from when you took office. Now, it’s a shade
over $22 trillion and heading in
the wrong direction. What are your plans
to reverse it? -Well, it’s all about growth. Don’t believe those phony
numbers when you hear 4point9% and 5% unemployment. The number’s probably 28%. I even heard recently 42%. Unemployment
is at a 16-year low. I accept the number. They’re paying
for these tariffs. We’re not. It’s tough for Apple
to pay tariffs. You have interest rates. I borrow money like I’m building
the Old Post Office. You pay like nothing. They give you free money. Now, that’s bad.
That’s not good. Obama doesn’t allow our Fed
to raise interest rates because, when those interest rates go,
you watch what’s gonna happen. It’s gonna be very unattractive. He’ll be out,
playing golf someplace. Well, I personally think
the Fed should drop rates. I think they really
slowed us down. There’s no inflation. This is gonna be the big problem because they’ve
so weakened the dollar. But, despite what you hear
in Washington, inflation is rampant. Everyone says,
“Oh, that’s great. We have a strong dollar”. We’re getting killed worldwide. -Okay.
-We have a very powerful dollar, so, that’s the good news. We have a stock market
that is so bloated. Be careful of a bubble. Stock market has gone up
massively since the election. When I was elected, a lotta
the really smart people went out and bought a lotta stock
and they’ve been rewarded.

  1. Recession. Now we know that Little Donny Fail-Fail has run President Obama's good economy into the ground.

    Everything that Traitor Trump touches fails.

  2. The whole world is laughing at Little Donny Fail-Fail.
    The whole world is laughing at his mentally defective MAGAtrash fans, too.

  3. Traitor Trump (R – Criminal) is the most corrupt, hateful, despicable, vile and dishonest "president" the United States has ever had.

    It's darn good that he's dumb and incompetent, too, or America would be in REAL trouble.

  4. Coal miners now feel really dumb,
    for supporting an orange tinted crumb,
    who lied for their votes,
    and promised some oats,
    and got them to beat on his drum.

  5. Too bad a Trump vs Obama golf game couldn`t be arranged, & Trump / Obama can only use one ball per man. Who wouldn`t watch it ?

  6. The Donald hasn't got a clue! He's a bankruptcy expert! Goes broke every chance he gets!🤣🤣🤣👍🇺🇸

  7. It’s like a group of friends getting savaged by mosquitos on holiday saying ‘We’ve really bitten into those mosquitos they’ve not bitten into us at all….’ it really is that contrary

  8. Trumpinsky is allowed to speak lol.. Amazing the lie bumps allow that while drinking Putin at the same time!!!! No wonder lil Kim writes so often!!!

  9. The Republican middle REALLY don't care about Trump's policies . The Republican middle REALLY come to watch a SHOW, man…a COMEDY SHOW ..in his rallies.

    They don't give a FIG about what he says and does.Even if it's detrimental to their own STATS at home. They are willing to sell out their mothers and children for the all glorious dollar, then hide behind religion. Been that way since the 70's.
    They even bring an 8 year old kid to his Obnoxious rallies. …

    Mebbe he can get another TV show for himself and end up competing with the likes of Jimmy Kimmel, Trevor Noah, Bill Mahr or Colbert or Chelsea.

  10. Difference between Donald Trump's deficit and the previous administration's deficit is Trump is a businessman who knows what he is doing in economic endeavors — not a gadfly who lives for his next appearance on a late-night show.

  11. If the economy was "good" I would have a job as an administrative assistant at the very least with my bachelors degree and military service. I can't even find a job waiting tables.

  12. WaPo editing a bunch of spit-takes to justify its own narrative. OOh, Thats fresh! CLICKBAITING at its lowest level.

  13. Literally everything he's ever said has had the opposite effect. Tariffs on China will only hurt the U.S. economy. China has almost every major country paying them they're at the center, the U.S. is just another supplier they can do without, they don't need them.

  14. WTF DID I JUST WATCH!?! LOL like seriously wtf how has he not been deemed mentally incompetent for the presidency yet!?!?!?

  15. He was right about obozos economic policies, it's obvious by how well the economy became under Trump, not obozo.

  16. He’s so clueless … never was capable of creating viable solutions for complex international and domestic issues … we (Americans) have an opportunity to recover from the damage done by the current president .. VOTE in 2020

  17. Unbelievable that EVERY single word spoken by potus is utter nonsense or a flat out LIE.
    An ABSOLUTE IMBECILE that governs by impulse.
    IMPEACHMENT 2020
    SUPERMAX 2021

  18. you have to hand it to the Washington Post. When they criticize president Trump they have a point. their criticism looks genuine.
