That's not what I said. The stock market moves all the time based off what people say. The stock market dropped 10% earlier this year based off a statement the fed chairman made about raising interest rates.

What I said was that big money doesn't "smarten up" to a news catalyst 24 hours after it comes out. I can guarantee you they read the fine print that came out of the G20 summit, and they took their positions accordingly. You saw this in futures contracts late Sunday, and in the stock market Monday.

^ That came out Monday. Read the "What Drove the Market" section.

Barry was a good schmoozy speaker but he was the most corrupt president of my lifetime.
Or a way of saying that he was the most corrupt president in your lifetime because he was the most black. It's related to how Obama came in only 2nd or 3rd place in some rural counties in Oklahoma in his 2012 Democrat primary.

Or if you're above racism, maybe you think the fact that nobody was indicted during the Obama administration is a sure sign of vast corruption. A lot of people were getting by with crime.

How, exactly, did Trump win anything here?

His explicit promise to flyover country chuds was "DUUURRRR AMERICA IS TEH GREATEST" and said the trade deficit would be decreased.

Well guess what? The trade deficit has only GROWN (retailers have been importing a lot of stuff in anticipation of tariffs) since Trump took office. Now that they have put a halt to the *THREAT* of the increased tariffs, the original tariffs will stay in place. There was no victory here, as there never is when Trump claims it. He isn't a deal maker. His new "NAFTA" agreement didn't change much, and we won't see the benefits because some of the major changes have to do with automotive production, and given that the major car companies are moving production out, the changes to NAFTA won't have much of an effect.
A big problem for U. S. workers is that one of the only major changes have to do with car production. GM and other U. S. car makers will find it less attractive to move more manufacturing to Mexico. The other manufacturers, such as Carrier, will still find doing that attractive. Labor costs will still be much lower.

You're such a good little socialist turd. You can't make a logical retort so you resort to the RACE card. DBMF

And yet, you all engage in denial, in such an aggressive manner, when someone accuses you of being racist towards President Obama (which many conservatives were, I can prove it with pictures). Says more about you, lo and behold. My future father-in-law called him a "n-word". To my face. I think it speaks to this primal instinct, of mediocre older white men, that they couldn't handle a non-white person be elected president. Like it was an affront to their sense of superiority or something. You probably fit in that mold.

But you still haven't listed how President Obama was corrupt. So, by all means, go ahead and show us your investigative findings, Sherlock. Because you apparently know more than everyone else.

What a nice bigoted comment.

But are you a "mediocre older white man"?
Given I wasn't offended by President Obama's election, no.

In fact, I actually voted for a old Republican white guy in the primaries in 2008 (Ron Paul). In hindsight, that was really dumb. In 2012, proudly voted for President Obama.

Damn, this thread is idiotic. Which is exactly why I have the OP on ignore. All he does is spam this site with the stupidest of fake news from the right. Then of course another idiot drags me into it with guess what? Yep, an idiotic post.

BTW, if you haven't figured it out yet, Trump doesn't know shit about international trade and the original article in this thread is garbage. Fake news. The real fake news. Not the fake news Trump has tried to acredit to those places he doesn't like.

Trump has done some things that I like, like the tax cuts. He's trying to do some things that I like, like increase border security. But he's also doing some idiotic things, like these tariffs and starting unnecessary trade wars. The #MAGAdiots can't admit that there is a Good Trump and a Bad Trump.
