Citation? I'm curious as to how a citizenship question can be racistSpeaking of which, I know we've talked before about Trump's racism - and now we have internal emails confirming the point of the citizenship census question was to lower the count of ethnic minorities and consolidate power in predominantly white districts. I think the word for that is "racist".
The author is wilfully obtuse and dissecting the data in a way that suits his argument and you're eating it up.Edit: Bonus Round - B-b-b-b-but the economy!
The DOW has performed 35% worse under Trump than it did under Obama, continuing the trend of the economy doing better under democratic leadership (3.8% growth vs 2.9% growth).
During Obama's first year the DOW hit its lowest point since ~1997, down nearly 50% from just two years prior. The market had nowhere to go but up. Also worth mentioning that under Trump the DOW has gone 40% higher than Obama's all-time high.
It's also cute that the article starts counting at inauguration, not at election, as if market and consumer confidence don't matter. Push the timeline back just two months and you see that under president-elect and then president Obama the S&P actually dropped by June of his third year, while under Trump it has increased by over 30% over the same period.
Similar story with Nasdaq - under Obama it peaked at its previous record high, around 5k. Under Trump it has hit over 8k.
That whole short little article is retarded, it was written just to bash Trump over tariffs.
