Weak response!

China dropped the price of their currency to an almost a historic low. It’s called “currency manipulation.” Are you listening Federal Reserve?
This is a major violation which will greatly weaken China over time!

Just when you think he can‘t be an even bigger buffoon. There you go.

Toledo is in Ohio so he was at least in the ballpark. And Dayton is a confusing place anyway. You've got the Oregon section of the city, and Miami university is only an hour away in Oxford.

Maybe he knows something we don’t. I’m glad that I am not in Toledo. I’d be hiding under my bed.

That happens. Newton and Einstein were also famous for mixing up places.

You are equating Newton and Einstein to Trump? In the scientists case they probably had better things to think about, I don’t know if Trump ever thinks.

Probably not, but it's interesting that some people believe such "facts" presented on the Internet

I didn't mean that one. The Toledo video was really awkward.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Following the yuan devaluation US stock market had its worst day of 2019!
Dow closed down 767 points after being down nearly 1,000 points; in the last week fell ca. 1,500.
EDIT; NASDAQ had its biggest daily fall of Trump's reign. When will he drop this stupid tariff bushiness?

To add insult to injury the Chinese announced a ban on buying US agricultural products; Trump was claiming his big success with the Chinese was their promise to buy these.

Trump reaping what he sowed!

He may be reaping, but US farmers are not selling.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Now Mr. Trump is accusing the Chinese of being a Currency Manipulator.

Why? Because they didn’t intervene in the market to prevent the RMB from falling to less than $7.

China has manipulated their currency for decades, but its only when they stop manipulating do they get accused of manipulating.

The world is upside down.

Hong Kong's Hang Seng Index (HSI), Japan's Nikkei, mainland China's Shanghai Composite Index (SHCOMP) and Taiwan's Taiex all fell more than 2% in early trading this morning.

Trump is playing with the big boys now; will he win or get taken to the cleaners?

Difficult world for a small time NY property developer. I say small time because he is now 715th-richest on the Forbes' latest World's Billionaires list! He is not even on the list of New York’s 10 biggest property owners.
