The State of the Union is a Mess


Trump said on Meet the Press recently that “the State of the Union is a mess.”  While some are concerned about China’s economy slowing and having a steep selloff in their global markets, Trump dismisses it.  Trump has adamantly discussed at every rally how China manipulates their currency to have an advantage over trade and markets.  He said “they’ve done it before, they’ll do it again.”

He also dismissed the labor numbers put out on Friday by the US Labor Market. Trump is spot on when he says that does not include people who have given up looking for work and want a job.  And it doesn’t include people who are working part time who want full time jobs with benefits.  But the labor department dismisses Trumps concerns stating that he is including retirees and people who don’t want to work.

Trump is more qualified to assess the economy than our government is because he is right in the thick of it.  He has millions of dollars invested all over the world from his business and he has thousands of employees.  He has participated directly in US and other markets for decades.  He knows when the economy is up and when the economy is down.  He knows when to buy, he knows when to sell.  Trump has had to layoff employees himself due to the failed economy over the last several years.  Labor is the most expensive liability a business has.  When the economy tanks, that is the first option.

And unlike other wealthy people like Warren Buffet who are going to leave their wealth to philanthropic causes when they die, Trump said he is old fashioned and is leaving it all to his family to keep his business going. A business that will continue to employ people.

But mess or no mess, Trump is the one to right our ship and keep looking forward.

  1. I would by far, trust Donald Trump to know the state of the Union, better than any other candidate running. That is why he will be the only president in years, to actually create jobs, reduce the deficit & end a lot of waste & fraud this country has to deal with. It will take a business mind & an honorable human being to actually get something done. His love for this country is infectious & that is what is going to propel him into the Oval Office!!!! Along with all of us that like a straight shooter! Business as usual, cannot continue, when we are clearly headed off a cliff! Thank you Mr. Trump & God bless you & your family! We love you!

  2. Trump for President! Go Trump. He is awesome.
    I wouldn’t watch the President speak tonight if I was paid. Thank goodness for Dance Moms and The Real House of Beverly Hills that I can watch when he is speaking. All he is going to say is to just PRETEND he did so much for America. He can sum that up in one word…NOTHING! Then he is going to say he is going to let in more illegals, refugees and Muslims. What I wish he would say is that he is stepping down as President and bought a one way ticket OUT of the United States. Let Trump take over Presidency!

  3. Anyone who believes the OBAMA ADMINISTRATION’S Department of Labor’s numbers is a fool. It has been used by Presidents from both sides for political gain. Likewise for the Inflation Numbers, global temperature numbers, national debt numbers and I could go on and on about how these administrative departments fudge the numbers. How about a little truth?

    Correcting administrative corruption is a major issue I pray that will be up there on President Trump’s “To Do” list. Fire the offenders and replace them with people who will get the job done without lying about the problems. This is just as important, if not more so, as appointing the right people to ambassadorships and trade deal negotiations.

    Ps. If the government can find the money to import and relocate 100,000 or more refugees, why can’t our government find a little money to give our Senior Citizens a Cost Of Living Raise?

    • Mr. Tony:

      I have been reading your comments for some time now, with no complaints, but this last one under your “Ps.” is the first time I have seen anyone touch the subject our Senior Citizens. I have not heard anyone talk of Social Security, what is Trump’s views on Social Security? Do you know of any? Our Seniors have worked hard and a long time to be treated like they are being treated, they need their money now, and the government needs to keep their fingers out of that pot!!! Please let me know your thoughts on this… Thanks…

      • Great question Vickie.
        Our future President, #Donald Trump has spoken-out on Social Security. Let me cover a few points.

        Donald Trump will not personally collect from it and he wants to save the program.
        “As Republicans, if you think you are going to change very substantially for the worse Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security in any substantial way, and at the same time you think you are going to win elections, it just really is not going to happen,”
        Donald Trump is one of the few politicians who doesn’t see Social Security as an “Entitlement.” He views it as a contract between the people and the government.
        “Allow every American to dedicate some portion of their payroll taxes to a personal Social Security account that they could own and invest in stocks and bonds.”

        For a full overview, see here: 7 full quotes by Donald Trump

        I’ll give up my Social Security; leave it to each person. (Sep 2015)
        Cannot change Medicare or Soc.Sec. and still win elections. (Mar 2013)
        Social Security isn’t an “entitlement”; it’s honoring a deal. (Dec 2011)
        Disability Racket: $25B in fraudulent disability filings. (Dec 2011)
        Pay off debt; put $3T interest savings into Trust Fund. (Jul 2000)
        Let people invest their own retirement funds. (Jul 2000)
        No government investment of retirement funds. (Jul 2000)

        On a personal note, I would be investing in AAA corporate bonds and Treasury notes. We face deflation, not inflation. Gold and other precious metals are great hedges against inflation but not deflation. In a total economic collapse, you can’t eat gold. Brass and lead may be your best bet. I just tossed that in there for fun. Not to be taken as personal investment advice.
