    You don't agree with what statement? Obama left the market and the economy in good shape.

    However, no one is still trading on events from the past. Today's stock price is taking into account not only yesterday's events but tomorrows. Looking at daily fluctuations and being like 'ha. Trump is bad for the market!' is just uninformed.

    Trump is good for the market when he's gutting regulations and letting corporations do whatever the hell they want to workers and the environment. Doesn't mean it's good for the country.

    Trump is bad for the market when he makes off the cuff remarks about things he has no information about but since he is President of the USA the markets react to his words, whether there's meaning behind them or not.

    Even Trump knows he's wrong on DACA, no matter how much his base demands the racism. He has no intention of fixing it but let's remember his MO is pretty simple: he just has to declare something for it to be true. So in his mind he gets credit for the tweet.

    Hate crimes rose the day after Trump was elected, FBI data show

    By Aaron Williams March 23 at 6:00 AM

    Reported hate crimes with racial or ethnic bias jumped the day after President Trump won the 2016 election, from 10 to 27, according to an analysis of FBI hate crime statistics by The Washington Post. There were more reported hate crimes on Nov. 9 than any other day in 2016, and the daily number of such incidents exceeded the level on Election Day for the next 10 days.

    FBI data collected since the early 1990s show that reports of hate crimes typically spike during election years, according to a study by the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University at San Bernardino. There was a 21 percent increase in reported hate crimes the day after Barack Obama won his first election in 2008, though hate crime reports remained relatively flat for the rest of the year.

    It’s unclear why election years bring an increase in reported hate crimes, particularly in the days following the election of our last two presidents. It could be that people frustrated or energized by the election results take out those emotions on people who are different than them. Or, given that hate crimes are notoriously underreported, the election could embolden victims to report the crimes against them.



    New York City police have one of the largest hate crime units in the country, but incident reports from the department offer few clues about what drives the election-year trend. On Nov. 1, 2016, police filed a report about a 63-year-old African American woman in the Queens borough of New York who found anti-black statements written on her door as she was coming home. And on Nov. 18 of that year, a report was filed alleging two African American men approached a white woman and man in Manhattan and yelled anti-white statements, before striking the 61-year-old man with a skateboard. It’s unclear whether these incidents were influenced by the election.

    I mean, why wouldn't he?

    The political action committee founded by John R. Bolton, President Trump’s incoming national security adviser, was one of the earliest customers of Cambridge Analytica, which it hired specifically to develop psychological profiles of voters with data harvested from tens of millions of Facebook profiles, according to former Cambridge employees and company documents.

    Mr. Bolton’s political committee, known as The John Bolton Super PAC, first hired Cambridge in August 2014, months after the political data firm was founded and while it was still harvesting the Facebook data.

    In the two years that followed, Mr. Bolton’s super PAC spent nearly $1.2 million primarily for “survey research,” which is a term that campaigns use for polling, according to campaign finance records.

    Tax cut for business and deregulation usually good for markets, at least short term

    Trade wars and tariffs usually bad for markets.

    As much as we like to look at day to day fluctuations, you’re right they are generally meaningless.

    That has very little to no impact on long term market results.

    I think it’s fair to say that this is now Trumps economy. It’s been over a year now, and he has done many things (good or bad) that have affected the economy. Unemployment is down, wages are slowly growing, housing is going well, and the stock market is overall up. These are all good things. Hopefully, they last.

    He made sure to say nobody has actually read the bill. For once, he's being honest.

    He was always going to sign it. That tweet was just a little temper tantrum.

    Tupelo fell hard for Donald Trump. The blue-collar enclave in northeastern Mississippi — birthplace of Elvis Presley and the American Family Association — was once home to a vibrant business in upholstered furniture. But as Chinese imports flooded in, the local economy buckled.

    There are fewer jobs in Tupelo today than there were at the millennium. Middle-income families are making almost 20 percent less, after inflation, than they did then. Mr. Trump’s offer to build a wall against Chinese imports was just what Tupeloans wanted to hear.

    Republicans could not lose in this deep red enclave in the buckle of the Bible Belt. Still, in the 2016 election, Mr. Trump carried Lee County, where Tupelo sits, by a 38-percentage-point margin over Hillary Clinton — nine percentage points more than Mitt Romney’s lead over Barack Obama four years before.

    And yet it’s not working out great for the working men and women of Tupelo. Indeed, President Trump’s first big trade barrier — tariffs against steel and aluminum imports — is, again, threatening to undermine their livelihood.

    For every job in Tupelo producing steel or aluminum, there are 200 jobs in industries that consume them that could be put at risk as tariffs push up the prices of these metals, according to research from Jacob Whiton and Mark Muro of the Brookings Institution.

    This is true across the country. The lesson the White House has yet to figure out is that the tariffs meant to protect the businesses that make these metals will end up hamstringing the industries that rely on them.
    Steel- and aluminum-producing industries employ some 95 workers in the Tupelo commuting zone — an area centered on Tupelo that comprises Lee and a clutch of five smaller counties, according to Mr. Whiton and Mr. Muro’s analysis.

    By contrast, 20,294 people in the area — almost one in four — work in industries that consume either metal. There are the workers assembling lawn mowers at the MTD factory and the workers at Jesco, a steel fabrication plant that serves the construction industry. There are the workers slapping together Corollas at the Toyota plant in Blue Springs a few miles northwest, and their colleagues close by at Toyota’s auto parts manufacturing plant.

    Just as I predicted. Evidently Trump was watching Fox News this morning who were killing the spending bill as the full funding for the Wall wasn’t in it which made Trump mad, then the tweet. WH officials had to talk him down to convince him this is the best deal he will see.
