    You'd think competent opposition to the Cheeto-in-Chief would try and focus on this given Trump's fanboys were boasting about his economy. Instead, I've heard nothing about economic problems and VASTLY more about how, "TrUmP iS tRyInG tO cHaNgE tHe ElEcTiOn, ThE dIrTy FaCsIsT!!!"
    Anti-Trump opposition doesn't focus too much on the economy because if they focused too much on the economy that would expose the federal reserve money printing and why the stock market is booming to record highs when the rest of the economy is biting the dust. It's in the best interest of the left to keep the public ignorant on what the federal reserve is and what it does so they can too print money to fund all their programs this way when they get into power.

    The left doesn't focus too much on the economy because if they focused too much on this it would likely raise the issue of why the stock market is booming close to record highs, while the rest of the economy is biting the dust, which would then inevitably lead to discussions of the federal reserve and its 6 trillions of money creation. It's in the best interest of the left to keep everyone in the dark about what the federal reserve is and what it does so they too can unitize its function to print even more trillions and fund all the programs they want to create once they get into power. In short, federal reserve is the best kept secret to both political parities, but especially the left.

    He does tend to focus (if not obsess) over details that aren't necessarily a big deal, like at his Tulsa rally when he spent ten minutes arguing that he didn't have problems walking on the ramp at West Point. Given how much he has hung his re-election on the economy, hyperfocusing on that makes sense.

    I still find it surprising anyone wouldn't know about the economic situation in the US, and considering the shut-downs have taken place around the world, not know how this effects economies in major countries and the fact this has the discussion since the shut-downs happened.

    There are two reasons the left doesn't focus on the economy. One is that Trump can easily blame the pandemic and shut-down, of which the left is definitely complicit since they were the main advocates of shut-down, so it would serve them best not to focus on this so close the election. But the left also doesn't focus too much on the economy because if they focused too much on this it would likely raise the issue of why the stock market is booming close to record highs, while the rest of the economy is biting the dust, which would then inevitably lead to discussions of the federal reserve and its 6 trillions of money creation. It's in the best interest of the left to keep everyone in the dark about what the federal reserve is and what it does so they too can unitize its function to print even more trillions and fund all the programs they want to create once they get into power.

    Yeah I knew. I thought it would be worse. I was actually waiting for it because I knew the stock market would drop and I could get some stocks cheaper that I have been wanting to get.

    This election date thing is just Trump trolling the Democrats again.

    The news about the economy isn't exactly a surprise, and there will be plenty of time to talk about it. The only real significance of it is that we are now officially in a recession, which is the traditional indication that it's time to kick someone out of the White House.

    Of course, Trump wanting to delay the election isn't exactly shocking, either. And given that he has no power to make it happen, it's the sort of news that will go away pretty quickly.

    I mean, he revealed highly classified intelligence to the Russian ambassador after inviting him into the white house, within a few months of taking office.

    If that wasn't enough to alarm the people who support him, literally nothing ever could.

    Trump is rapidly becoming background noise. The country is starting to think about the post-Trump, post-Repub, world. But first, they have to get out the vote.
