Will you believe the inevitable? Per your puppet-master, the press is the enemy of the people, so surely they will lie to you, no?

Oh, and from that same article:

Brookings compiled a list of the top 10 states by contribution to 2016-2017 national manufacturing job growth. Only two states listed, California and Illinois, did not vote for Donald Trump.

The chart is in the linked article.
Did you wash your hands after pulling that out of your hind end, Mike?

"U.S. workers' paychecks are worth less than they were a year ago, the labor department reported Friday, as modest wage gains have failed to keep pace with inflation.
Inflation rose 2.9 percent from July 2017 to July 2018, the Labor Department said, while average hourly pay increased 2.7 percent over the same period.
The lack of real wage gains comes despite a strong economy, with sustained growth and an unemployment rate of 3.9 percent -- one of the lowest levels in decades." WP

I thought the Naranja Shartcannon said we were going to be soooo tired of winning. If you're going backwards, it sure don't sound like winning to me.

The Dow just registered its longest stint in correction territory in nearly 60 years

131 sessions. Good news is, it’s kept the idiot in chief from bragging about the Dow for a good while. I notice our resident Trumpkin has been awfully quiet of late...

Donny’s claim that GDP tops the jobless rate for the first time in 'over 100 years' is not even close to correct

Just more lies from Donny. Of course, his idiot followers will believe whatever nonsense he an Fox “News” tell them.
