Trump’s State Of The Union Address Based On Big Lies About U.S. Economy, Which Will Be The Centerpiece Of His Demagogic 2020 Campaign!; His Fable Of A Blue Collar Boom Is A Complete Hallucination; Notice That He Never Gives Exact Numbers!

Despite Trump’s Claims, Average Weekly Earnings Are Completely Stagnant; His 47% Comparative Increase In Blue Collar Assets Exaggerates An Absolute Increase Of Less Than 1%; Trump’s Killer Austerity Includes Making Medicaid Into Block Grants, Robbing Americans Of An Entitlement And Opening Door To More Cuts; He Cuts Food Stamps For Millions Who Still Need Them, With 700, 000 To Get The Axe This Spring;

Trump’s Wall Street Bubble Is Moribund: New York Fed Injecting $50 Billion/Day Into Repo Market, With Total Approaching $7 Trillion!
