Fear not, friends. Recent tweets within the last 24 hours show that the President knows exactly what this country needs and has solutions to all of our problems.
For example, just yesterday morning:
Did you see that? When it comes to the price of oil, Trump demonstrates a remarkably nuanced understanding of supply and demand while simultaneously negotiating via Twitter using that often forgotten lever of power known as “hope.”
Yes, friends. The President “hopes” that oil prices stay low. With that kind of leadership, we should expect nothing less.
Or this tweet, which he also sent yesterday morning:
Trump points out that the complex and interconnected web pf the United States economy is not dependent upon corporate profits, global trade, interest rates, the cost of labor and other inputs, governmental regulations, consumer confidence, the soaring national debt, or his recent trade war with a host of nations.
None of those boring and complicated things are nearly as important to the US economy as how the Democrats in Congress treat him. Even before they take power in the House, the mere threat that Democrats might impose some level of accountability or provide a few checks and balances has sent the market into a tailspin.
Yesterday, at least.
The market has actually given back most of its 2018 gains over the course of the last three months, but still!
If the Democrats say mean things to the President, stocks suffer. If they are nice, the market will rebound.
Economics at its best, my friends.Lastly, the President offered these two gems over the weekend (in between skipping a service honoring Americans who died fighting in World War I because it was raining):
Surprise! The President has thankfully found a the solution for the California wildfires that continue to increase in size and severity:
Threaten and berate.
While many scientists, forest management professionals, and firefighters point to climate change as a key factor in the rise in these wildfires, the President says no.
Climate change is not real. Or is actually good for our country. Or something.
Instead, the public servants who manage our forests must simply need to “Get smart!” and “Remedy now!”
Thanks, Mr. President!
He also seems to think that cutting the budgets of these agencies when they are struggling to control these wildfires in the first place might also do the trick. This is the old, “You can’t do the work with this much money? Try doing it with half that amount!”
It’s out-of-the box thinking like this that makes me think America is indeed in good hands.
