    ok, but he won using the system we American's arrogantly boast to the world is the best system on the planet. A system that was put in place so that slave states would have more voting power. Trump just used the system the way it was designed. Is there currently any movement to change that system?

    There is no real effort to change it. The real truth is it was a fluke that rump got the job.

    Another "I don't know how economics work" fool. Taxes are not cut!!! The gdp was on it's way for the last 8 years. Unemployment was going down also for the last 8 years.

    Well considering the economy was on the way up under Obama and it was only because Trump had people convinced the country was in a recession and unemployment was HUGE and they were living in a war zone I suppose they could have also been thought to believe they were worse off then they were. Now add to that this new guy really didn't do anything that spurred any change so the economy was going to go up naturally in the short term anyway. The new guy did give tax cuts but likely these newly implemented tax cuts will have a negative effect on the economy as will the tariffs on steel and aluminum we'll see if they buy a second dose come Nov 2018.
    So far it doesn't look good. Much of that snake oil salesman co-workers are retiring and their "suckers" are wising up to the new snake oil salesman because they were backed by Trump (see recent special elections).

    More lies. Unemployment went down because Obama changed how it was counted and the economy under Obama was stagnant and Obama wanted it that way

    Do you ever ask yourself why sooo many Americans don't believe that propaganda?

    Nah .....

    You probably think everyone thinks like you don't you?
