President Trump, confronting perhaps the most ominous economic signs of his time in office, has unleashed what is by now a familiar response: lashing out at what he believes is a conspiracy of forces arrayed against him.

He has insisted that his own handpicked Federal Reserve chair, Jerome H. Powell, is intentionally acting against him. He has said other countries, including allies, are working to hurt American economic interests. And he has accused the news media of trying to create a recession.

“The Fake News Media is doing everything they can to crash the economy because they think that will be bad for me and my re-election,” Mr. Trump tweeted last week. “The problem they have is that the economy is way too strong and we will soon be winning big on Trade, and everyone knows that, including China!”

Mr. Trump has repeated the claims in private discussions with aides and allies, insisting that his critics are trying to take away what he sees as his calling card for re-election. Mr. Trump has been agitated in discussions of the economy, and by the news media’s reporting of warnings of a possible recession. He has said forces that do not want him to win have been overstating the damage his trade war has caused, according to people who have spoken with him. And several aides agree with him that the news media is overplaying the economic fears, adding to his feeling of being justified, people close to the president said.

...The president’s broadsides follow a long pattern of conspiratorial thinking. He has claimed, without evidence, that undocumented immigrants cast millions of ballots, costing him the popular vote in the 2016 election. During the campaign, he predicted that the system might prove to be “rigged” if he did not win. He conjured up a “deep state” conspiracy within the government to thwart his election and, more recently, his agenda. And he has said reporters are trying to harm him with pictures of empty seats at his rallies.....

Trying very hard but epeically failing.

WTF are those "ominous economic signs" that portend calamity?

The Trump Recovery continues unabated, the markets are overreacting, as the always do.

This is just another manufactured negativity campaign against Trump, last week it was racism, who knows what it will be next week. To date, none of it has worked, and yes....a lot of people are conspiring to get Trump removed.

"In Economic Warning Signals, Trump Sees Signs of a Conspiracy"

Mr. Trump sees signs of conspiracies at an intersection, he just doesn't know which way to turn.

Trump dismisses recession fears: 'Our consumers are rich ...

12 hours ago ·   Our consumers are rich . I gave a tremendous tax cut and they're loaded up with money." A strong economy is key to Trump's re-election prospects.   Consumer  

===========================================================

US credit card debt is very high. People want to "think" they are rich and "prove it" by buying things on credit.

Who didn't see this coming? If we end up in another recession, trump, after screaming for the last 3 years that he alone fixed the economy, (that wasn't broken in the first place), will undoubted blame everyone but himself. Trump is mentally ill, he cannot and will not ever accept responsibility for anything that goes wrong. 

This article, or to a greater degree, is nothing more than trump setting up his excuses before something bad happens. He did the same thing with the trump u lawsuit, (saying the Judge Curial is biased because of his Mexican heritage), and with the election in 2016 where he said that the election was rigged, so if he lost he had an excuse. 

Trump's number 1 priority in life is to protect his ego at all costs, even if that means lying to the entire country. The truly sad part is that there are people dumb enough to actually believe him.

See what coming?

What are the signs of a recession?

What caused it.

Truth be told, this talk of recession is yet another left wing lie and hoax.

Why is it that well to do liberals are calling and hoping for a recession before the 2020 election? You really don't see the everyday loony left doing it. Why is that? Because the well off loons don't care. They will probably not lose homes, jobs, etc if a recession were to hit.On the other hand, however, many mainstream libs, along with all Americans, stand a chance to lose everything.

This just shows that this is nothing more than a call for a recession in the name of politics, and how the loon left can get another loon lefty in the White House. Who cares about everyday Americans, right, libs?
