    I want to post this, before some Trumpette tries to quote the con-man in the White House, saying everything is coming up roses. :rolleyes::rolleyes:

    GDP Report: Trump is taking credit for the 'biggest and best' GDP in American history. Here are the facts - CNN

    To be clear, this is NOT growth. It is not even close to recovery.
    It is a partial bounce back toward normal economics, as expected with short-sighted openings of businesses, which have already resulted in our new autumn Covid surge.

    Please remember the facts when you
    VOTE ON TUESDAY.
    (or before)
    Thank you.

    GDP is the economy. GDP grows, the economy gets better.

    Obviously. But GDP is still nowhere near back to where it was pre-covid. So the statement as it stands is a straight lie.

    Every country has experienced a radical drop in GDP during the control measures in the spring and every country has experienced a partial bounce-back when the controls were reduced in the summer. Durrh. Trying to take credit for that is an appeal that can only work with the very stupidest people in the country.

    Trump and his entourage lie all the time and continue lying even when their lies are pointed out to them two seconds earlier.

    Vote for truth, justice and the American way as soon as you can but at least next Tueday.

    That’s either total projection or you are completely deceived by the onslaught of continuous Democrat lies.

    I feel the same about you. To me Trump exemplifies the opposite of the teachings of Christ by embracing deadly sins, by disparaging the 'least' and so forth.

    That wasn't an option.
    It was basically total, disastrous train wreck full of chaos, or a train wreck without the name calling and disease.

    If Trump acted like a Christian he would be accused of implementing a theocracy.

    Its weird the left wants him to act like a Christian.
    Well if your better than a month ago, its growth.

    Maybe not for all time, but its still growth all the same.

    Terrible excuse for his dishonesty, materialism, and hedonism, InChrist.

    Well on paper I don’t think anyone from any political “side” would object to acts that are Christ like.
    Charity, compassion, humility, feeding the poor, healing the sick and helping the homeless etc.

    I wish some so called Christians acted more Christ like if I’m honest.

    Are you saying he is dishonest because the media keeps saying he’s dishonest over and over again or do you know specific situations?

    Very weird. But if he did act line a Christian do you think the left would hate him any less??? I have never seen such unprecedented, irrational hate than what the left and media constantly express toward Trump.

    From what I’ve been reading many who may be considered the less fortunate in Black and Hispanic communities are very appreciative of the way the Trump administration policies have helped with better educational and business development opportunities in their communities.
