3. This preposterous, ridiculous, orange imposter has no idea what he's doing. Tariffs are taxes...

on the American people and he thinks China and other nations he's slapped tariffs on are paning them.

He should be impeached just for this malpractice.

4. He life is based on debt


and thinks everyone of us should do the same.

Except, we never learned to live like that.

So he is helping by killing everything he touches.

All the while our hero, oh, wait.

Nobody is coming to our rescue.

And for one I AM PISSED.

5. That insane tweet attacking the fed shows he is friggin idiot who doesn't know what he's

Talking about.

Itís so obvious the fed needs to raise rates or itís going to get worst for our economy. Our treasuries are no longer an attractive investment to foreign buyers until this clown in the White House is gone. From my basic financial experience and classes I took in economies in college itís so obvious he has no friggin clue.

7. ... A new report from the Economic Policy Institute shows that over the past 40 years,

inflation-adjusted compensation for CEOs has increased by 940 percent, while compensation for the typical worker has increased only 12 percent ...

... the economy has been and continues to be organized primarily for the benefit of those at the top ...

... economic policy turned out to be quite a bit more complicated than Trump thought. Of course, you could say that about almost any policy.

15. The idiot-in-chief could not even pass an Econ 101 class.

I would bet my life's savings on it. He has no fucking clue what he is doing. He thinks this is all a big game where you try to bluff/intimidate all the other players, however this time he's not using his own money (or debt) he is using the US economy and he doesn't care if his gambles don't pay off. After all, it's not coming out of his pocket.

Will someone please impeach this motherfucker already?
