Vox takes a hard-look at US growth outlook and concludes that Trump’s budget assumptions are for the fairies.
The thing is Trump is trapped by his own rhetoric. In the campaign trail, he promised 4% growth, which this article shows is totally speculative. But poor, white, less educated, unemployed, under-privileged people voted for Trump.
Trump is struggling on many fronts concurrently but what’s clear is that the prognosis for America is looking increasingly worrying. Trump can’t deal with the evidence because it challenges his credibility. Let’s hope that Trump does not look to Fascist leaders for inspiration. Look at Mussolini’s Italy and Hitler’s Germany.
For the moment, the checks and balances are still working. Perhaps the risk of impeachment will keep Trump in check?
