If there’s one thing the current occupant of the White House response to is poll numbers. Fox News polls have always been favorable towards him and this must be quite a shock. You couple that with the fact that the stock market fell almost 900 points today, the stories about Mitch McConnell and Russia, the downright falling apart of our foreign policy across the world and you can see a president that’s now in a corner. usually he responds to this by making some Grand gesture which he never follows through with. My prediction is that he’s going to say that he is going to be the one to finally get some sort of law on the books to end gun violence but in the end he will say the Democrats did not agree to some odd thing that he had asked for and pulls away from the agreement.
This is been a week where you have seen him show signs of wear and tear. After not wanting to criticize the Chinese government for its atrocities on the people of Hong Kong today he said that they need to be humane to the people of Hong Kong. he picked the new fed chairman, and picked him, and today he attacked it mercilessly for not lowering interest rates. Does this man understand that interest rates are at an all-time low for an economy of this magnitude and that if it goes south the economy can only be boosted by interest rate adjustments down but if it’s at zero where do we go ? Give more money away from our Treasury?
There’s 550 days before the election so much can happen I just hope that he continues on his path of self-destruction because that’s the only way we’re going to get him out of the White House.
