The ignorance of economic principles by both politicians and the public is the single most frustrating aspect of observing politics for me. It utterly kills me that people think Trump is responsible for this economic boom. We'd have had one regardless of who was president. The stage has been setting since 2008.

Trump's policies are a disaster for the American economy. Tax cuts at full employment just cause inflation, a bubble in equities, and a bigger deficit. His trade policies are, honestly I can't even bring myself to talk about them. And he'll be out of office when the rent comes due and it will be blamed on the Democrat who's in office. I think the stage is being set for a one term Democratic president whose supposed stewardship of recessing economy will keep the Republicans in power for the proceeding decade. God it's so depressing. Fyi I'm a former Republican.
