So let's see -- Trump threatens to crash the economy with his trade policies, and expects the Fed to bail him out by lowering interest rates with unknown consequences? Is that about right?

Meanwhile, China just slapped more tariffs on US goods. Thank goodness winning trade wars is as easy as, say, not bankrupting casinos.

The Alzhiemers has clearly taken over - he is showing everyone how unstable he is.

Is there anyone left on his own team to attack and belittle?

Get the nuclear football away from him - let Pence finish out the term.

He is unfit for office....

We wouldn’t be in this mess if the last 3 previous Presidents would have stepped in to stop China from getting out of hand.

So liberals are quite content with the status quo concerning the business practices of China.

"My only question is, who is our bigger enemy, Jay Powell or Chairman Xi?"

My only question is, how the hell did Trump end up as president?

Mr President, our bigger enemy is your 2016 and 2020 Shadow Campaign Chairman and business partner, Vladimir Putin...

But we know you are so compromised by him that you can never admit it...

Trump is starting to remind me of the snarky Martian boss in that movie Mars Attacks. It's like he wants to vaporize anyone or anything he doesn't like.

There's nothing federal about the Federal Reserve.

What do you mean? Your boy picked Powell and said this about him;

“If we are to sustain all this progress, our economy requires sound monetary policy and prudent oversight,” Trump said as Powell looked on. “We need strong and steady leadership at the U.S. Federal Reserve ... He will provide exactly that.”

Another flip-flop? Donnie "Simone Biles" Trump....

Obama got us out of the Lehman shock mess, and now Trump threatens to get us into another recession, and he wants the Fed to bail him out? No way, Donnie. You better learn to clean up your own messes.

Oh, and by the way, calling people names and throwing tantrums don't even work for little kids, so don't go doing it yourself.

President Donald Trump reacted furiously on Friday after Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell linked the trade war with China to risks to the U.S. economy

Ummm..... everybody knows the trade war with China is a risk to the US economy

What's there to disagree in that statement?
