    This is not a complicated idea. By taking credit for the success of the US economy, does that mean he will shoulder the blame should it tank?

    The Smart money seems to think that the tax largesse has put money in workers hands and inflated stock prices as companies buy back stock.

    The problem with rising wages seems higher inflation which will prompt the Fed to push up rates which will quickly reduce the benefits of increased wages....

    Any thoughts? At every turn this is like the Producers, where Trump seems on a mission to lose, but at the last minute his feet get pulled from the fire....

    Presidents get credit for the economy when it is good and blame when it is bad whether their policies had anything to do with it.

    What else can Trump talk about? Virtually every policy he supports is unpopular among the public at large.

    At present, Trump doesn't have to talk about anything, our justice is doing all the talking right now, anything else is only a distraction.
