    TrueD'oh! is too busy making fun of Trump to worry about jobs in Canada, eh.

    Bloomberg is such an honest outlet.

    Chinese exports have been decreasing for a while. It should actually be a good thing for them. If they would keep their currency stable and develop their own markets, lower exports would be no problem. It actually would mean the Chinese people are keeping more of their wealth for themselves.

    It is inevitable when your economy grows, labor rates go up, which makes exports less attractive. But the ChiComs don't want the people to have wealth it makes them too powerful. The game is to keep the people employed. Then they will be busy and making enough to survive but not enough to take a breath and think about how life could be better.

    Only Canadians would have elected that frat boy to be their leader. He must have promised free maple glazed cake donuts.

    I think it was like the Bill Clinton vote - enough female voters wanted to make whoopy with him, to get him past all his ethical issues

    Maybe time for a new FBI director, say around Nov 4, 2020 --

    Trump put Wray in the job cause he didn’t impede the IG report and it placated the top folks at the FBI. Now that Trump has evidence to justify action, he will do so.

    His word choice is also telling "I don’t know what report current Director of the FBI Christopher Wray ...."

    Sounds like there may be a Wray/McCabe show on CNN in the near future.

    Could be read as a distinction between Wray and Comey. Both made comments about the IG report.

    I get the institutional loyalty and pride thing, but loyalty to country and Constitution must come first. Always. In fact, it is your sworn duty. And so if you are so myopic that you cannot see there is rot atop of the FBI/DOJ (and IC) that has to be removed, then you too have to go. It's that simple.

    Yeah, my comment was sort of a joke. You know, if Trump fires him, he will be the darling of CNN and the left.

    I think we have reached the stage where only a corrupt person would not give Trump some acknowledgement
    He is breaking the back of the Chinese Global Trade Hegemony
    And he played a big role in curbing some of the big contra-USA dreams of the EU too.
    He has the globalists and the socialists in retreat
    And he did it all without firing a single shot
    It's quite a remarkable story.
    Give a full 8 years to any politician from either party and not a single one of them would have come close to getting done what he has already accomplished in the arena of world trade in just 3 years
    And he is not done yet

    It's past time for some of you haters to start giving him some credit.

    Today Trump said --
    “Britain and the United States will now be free to strike a massive new Trade Deal after BREXIT. This deal has the potential to be far bigger and more lucrative than any deal that could be made with the EU”

    The dot com boom busted in March 2000. So this economic stress number doesn't mean anything.

    Telling that China and others are still making deals with Trump. They obviously feel he will not be removed and likely will win reelection.

    Horn6721 Half of seeming clever is keeping your mouth shut.

    Great Point HiC
    I did not think of it that way.
    And Trump did not have to tell anyone he would " have more flexibility" after he I reelected
