A realistic vision?!??

Trump is a 19th century thinker in a 21st century world. He thinks the coal and steel industries are the most important industries in America. China's Mr. Xi Jinping is running circles around Donald Trump. Unlike Trump, Mr. Xi understands that the future will be dominated by deep-learning algorithms, artificial intelligence, quantum computers, nanotechnology, synthetic biology, genetic engineering, photo-voltaics, advanced robotics, and so on.

And America is stuck with Donald Trump, the most anti-science President in the history of our Republic. Yikes!
All total gibberish to an anti-science, climate change denier, flat earther Trump Deplorable.

Trump has made good decisions, with the GOP leaders, that has put the country on a successful path. He has a realistic vision for the country, and he knows there are some people who want to stop him from succeeding. Democrats don't want him to succeed, either. The Democrat Media want him to fail.

But, despite all of the Trump haters, he is doing a pretty good job with the economy, border security, and is doing much for America's veterans.

Trump is the leader of the free world, and he's doing a far better job than Obama, and that always means the left is going to hate him for succeeding, and do all they can to downplay his success.
You are clearly expressing your opinions. The trouble is, there are no facts to support those opinions.

So China uses no coal? No oil? No Nuclear?
I believe people still use buggy whips sometimes. Whether they use those things now doesn't speak to the issue of the future. It's not like China is buying coal from us--they have huge deposits of their own. And they are cancelling previously ordered coal power plants.

I think you may actually be giving President Trump a wee bit too much credit there. His zero-sum mercantilism is really more 18th century than 19th century.

Just my opinion...

Cheers.

You're right, of course. It was toward the end of the 18th century that David Hume and Adam Smith together annihilated the intellectual foundations of the philosophy of mercantilism, showing how ridiculous it truly was. But it took awhile for those ideas to percolate through the society at large. I wanted to say 19th century in a nod to the overwhelming importance of steel in the major industrial countries toward that end of THAT century. Trump really does seem fixated on the coal and steel industries. It's just plain weird, with the technological revolutions going on all around us.

Boy, you can say that again!
The point is, and has been proven, is that some of those appointees are working against the man who appointed them, than for him.

Unlike Obama appointees, who were in lock-step with him, some of those appointed by Trump have not been good for his Administration or the country.

So, you don't think the Trump economy is doing well? Most thinking people would disagree with you.

Oh, you probably think that Obama is responsible for the great economy -- Right? So, when Obama asked how Trump was going to wave a magic wand and bring manufacturing jobs back, and then under Trump they have come back, Obama did that, even though Obama said it couldn't be done.

This exposes the Federal Reserve as partisan, which many of us thought already. I think Trump knows they are partisan too.

Should the Federal Reserve hold back on trying to avoid a recession? Bill Dudley, a former Federal Reserve member from New York, thinks that’s exactly what the Fed should do. In his recent column for Bloomberg, Dudley proposed the Federal Reserve not lower interest rates to help an economy at the tail end of a long economic expansion and stifled by four years of Fed rate hikes as well as “the trade war” with China.

Capitalism is an inherently unstable economic system, it crashes cyclically and the wealth always comes out more concentrated than before. We all know we're overdue. America is partisan, so yeah, every aspect of this society is. Like this post.
