    Actually Trump has been systematically undoing all of obsmas economic policies and the economy is responding accordingly.

    The economy was growing. That's one odd recession.

    You can only have stagnant growth for so long before you slide into recession and that's the road we were on as Obama's last quarter GDP of 1.2% proves.

    If he does get re-elected in 2020 its going to get really ugly for him when the economy starts to tank if it hasnt allready by that time. We are in one of the longest economic expansions since WW2 so its bound to happen sooner or later

    That doesn't prove anything. GDP growth always fluctuates.

    It is forcast to happen about the time Trump took office but instead the economy has taken off like a rocket so it's actually a new growth period not a continuation of the old one and the end will be much later.

    The US still has significant leverage: The Chinese do not want an outbreak of war in the Korean Penisula, because of fear of the rush of immigrants in China's border. All the US has to do is ratchet up the tensions significantly for the Chinese to get the message. And it might take more than words, it might indeed require a missile or two.

    Ever since 2013, I was prepared for war with North Korea. And that preparation has gone unchanged. The North Korean regime is the greatest threat to peace in Asia.

    "taken off like a rocket"

    How so?

    I always hear claims of how much better the economy is in just two short years since Obama left office. Like we were in a 3rd world state and now we are living in paradise

    Or tested any nukes. Good God you can't even be honest about what was said.

    I see you are still running from my question about your own claim that mocking is different from attacking. Shocker. :)

    Got proof of that? What am I saying, of course you dont.

    They are still trying to work on getting a nuke on a missle. Of course they still need to test.

    Same answer.

    Sorry, the arguing over stupid semantics is a meaningless and boring. Maybe someone else will play with you.

    Exactly right. Trump tried diplomacy and if NK doesn't respond we have ever right to use military power and both NK and China know that. Trump put them in a box.
