The Donald was at it again in Wisconsin this weekend, reiterating his patented boast that the US economy is booming like never before.
We’re now the No. 1 economy anywhere in the world and it’s not even close,” he said on Saturday night at a rally in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
“At the end of six years, you’re going to be left with the strongest country you’ve ever had,” he said.
We beg to differ, profoundly. The debt- and bubble-freighted US economy is actually running out of gas after a long, artificial cycle of tepid expansion; and so far the Donald’s Trade Wars and fiscal borrowing binge have only piled more debilitating baggage on America’s deeply impaired economy.
