Yes! A reasonable series of things to support. this is exactly the kind of lure that gets me on the hook thinking we can talk about something meaningful!
I also support low unemployment. I also recognize that trump has little or nothing to do with it, but it's a good thing to have low unemployment. I don't think it would be worse without trump nor is it better for him - it has only continued a pretty steady trend until the pandemic (I'll only dip there quickly but do totally believe based on many other countries and possibilities we didn't need to be hit as hard in unemployment if we'd managed a better response)
Regarding 401k and the stock market, we can chock that up to a difference in opinion, but I find a rocky unstable overinflated stock market dangerous, one big driver seems to be keeping interest rates low, but that's not helping the value of the dollar, and wage growth trails inflation. It's also worth noting that monthly job growth was better under Obama, poverty rates fell faster, looking at really any charts or statistics, it's clear trumps the 9th inning finishing pitcher with a 10 run leads who's managed to at least not tank the game. And when this all came with a tax cut for the super wealthy costing the country almost 2 trillion, all the while cutting valuable services, and only offering short term cuts to yout and I, I'm having a hard time getting behind that. Trickle down doesn't work, it hasn't and isn't and giving more of our tax money to corporations and endebting our country seems really stupid and EXACTLY the opposite of what a prudent business would do in times when the economy is supposed to be good.
The trade with china mexico and others is a GREAT point. lets actually talk about that!!!
us being on an even playing field is absolutely worth supporting, if there was any real actionable policy - but its instead just been a happy talking point for trump which he's really strongly failed to deliver on meaningfully - right? all he did was raise tariffs in unpredictable ways that hurt many businesses and resulted in retaliatory tarrifs also damaging and requiring bailouts of farmers etc. Growth in the US is one of the slowest in developed countries. the "new NAFTA" did almost nothing differently. None of the efforts have been direct and focused on real issues like IP, human rights, or Hong Kong's sovereignty
I could go on but it's a waste to get you to see the real side of things.
