@MarcoMNYC The personality issue seems to be less important than the votes of the millions of unemployed. I'm not ideological about this - I upset a fair few people in 2017 (and beyond) saying Trump would be re-elected if there wasn't a recession .
@MarcoMNYC No US president has won a second term in the past 100 years when there's been a recession in the run-up to the election - why do you think it is different this time?
I have again and again over past 6 months argued that this is not a normal recession. Rather the shock is more similar to a natural disaster. Early on I compared it to 'Hurricane Katrina' in 2005. If we look at US initial jobless claims this is exactly what we now see.
I have covered 7 Presidents. I have never seen a POTUS use the Rose Garden or any White House platform to launch a political attack against his opponent for reelection, a campaign rally barely disguised as a faux news conference. All during a pandemic and a recession
Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.
The Fake News LameStream Media is doing everything possible the “create” a U.S. recession, even though the numbers & facts are working totally in the opposite direction. They would be willing to hurt many people, but that doesn’t matter to them. Our Economy is sooo strong, sorry!
