Saudis working with China to ditch the petrodollar. “Brazil, China strike trade deal agreement to ditch US dollar”. Not only is our currency devalued…it is being actively warred against and increasingly abandoned.
This is not a small thing.
Looks like some folks are getting their wish that America take its place among the indistinguishable “average” nations. Whittle it all down to a pedestrian nub.
The last thing Trump was, was "in control." Regardless, you supported them so it is entirely disingenuous to suggest that those bad economic conditions be assigned to him and him alone. If you had an ounce of integrity, you would admit you thought what he did was the right thing and that the economic conditions that resulted don't "count" against him, because, well, he did the right thing. And, even if you don't, it is doubly disingenuous to suggest that Biden simply sitting in the Oval Office when it was over is the sole reason for the (rather tepid) recovery that ensued when the lockdowns ended and economic activity returned to "normal."
Frankly, that's a lot of disingenuity for one person, but you pull it off like a pro.
Trump called for a national quarantine on March 17, By the week of April 2nd some 6.6 million workers applied for unemployment.
On April 17th Trump claimed he had total control over governors to declare openings. For the purpose of creating conflict and confusion, some in the Fake News Media are saying that it is the Governors decision to open up the states, not that of the President of the United States & the Federal Government. Let it be fully understood that this is incorrect. ....It is the decision of the President, and for many good reasons. With that being said, the Administration and I are working closely with the Governors, and this will continue. A decision by me, in conjunction with the Governors and input from others, will be made shortly!
Travel restrictions, lack of tests, contradicting claims: These are some of the major actions by the US president.
You try to pin the blame for the lockdowns on democrats...and get your panties in a bunch when the facts show what Trump actually did.
Your words: the huge drop that resulted from leftist authoritarians forcing large swaths of the country into extended lockdowns.
