    Highball: Does trump know where jobs come from?

    BY LEAH MCGRATH GOODMAN ON 2/10/17 AT 1:18 PM

    We had Trump Vodka, Trump Airlines and Trump Steaks. Now, get ready for Trump Finance—a mix of shotgun executive orders, proclamations of instant job growth from the presidential bully pulpit and Trump’s signature verbal lynchings, aimed at select corporations via Twitter.

    Following an election that was, in large part, an expression of Americans’ deep unhappiness with the economy, President Donald Trump’s promise to bring back job growth and a booming stock market appear to be somewhat at odds with the policies he’s putting in place during the first 20 days of his presidency.

    In a note out this week, Goldman Sachs chief economist Jan Hatzius highlighted Trump’s travel ban and other measures in the president’s “America First” program as injecting potential “downside risks” into the U.S. economy. In fact, Trump may do real damage by making the economy into a petri dish where he experiments with taxes and import tariffs that “could deal a lasting blow to global trade, if U.S. trading partners retaliate, as we expect,” Hatzius said.

    Why would people be unhappy with the economy, the left has been preaching about how great Obama made it.

    Are you saying that was a lie?

    Obviously all people aren't unhappy with the economy. Some are doing very well, and some are left out. It is the people who are not sharing in the prosperity that are unhappy and voted for trump believing that the guy who stiffs contractors cares about them.

    Yes Trump knows where jobs come from, that is why for the first time since Reagan was President, January (which is the month that registers the greatest job loss due to the end of the Christmas season) had a 250,000 job increase... and they are FULL TIME JOBS not part time jobs like were being created by Obama.

    Ronnie Ray Goon did the phones back in the early 80's. Every person I meet or know in the last 8 years has had their life improve, well, except those of the unwavering reich. Then again I live in a place where people are workers not republicans. We make things happen and produce products that people want which makes for job growth unlike pissing and moaning all day like republicans do.

    Well you peoples "shortcomimgs" is in ya actually think people "want" Jobs....

    I want Amazon and Robotics to take over so we can move on to a Guarenteed Income although Glen Beck recently raised the question that what shall "drive" the Human Spirit at that point....

    Rush Limbaugh also used to frequently mention "work" as something that fullfills the spirit and makes the soul complete even as recently as last week he mentioned the protestors as "this" is who they are....

    They the "protestors" get Foodstamps , Hud Housing , obamaphones etc and they didnt have to send a "memo" why these folks were just in the streets...

    Its a "way" if LIFE for em

    Assuming that you're not bullshitting us again on those numbers (you provided no link and I'm not inclined to do your homework for you), you're going to give Dear Leader full credit for all those jobs, even though he was in office for only 12 days of that month? Do you seriously believe that all those jobs were created as the result of anything he did during those 12 days?

    Good grief.

    Just one salient point to make and that is Saint Ronnie the RAY GOON originated low income phones.So obamaphones is a misnomer.
