Anyone else here pat their employees on the back for stuff they might get done?

If you had large scale negotiation exposure you would realise Trump doesn't know what he is doing. When is that China deal getting done by the way?
Well, I guess that settles it. An anti-Trump type on the internet said so. No idea when it is getting done, just know the talks are in session. Do you believe they are not or won't get done? Seems like we're making progress to me.

The Venn diagram of "anti-trump types" and "literate adults" is a single circle.

I'll take that is a compliment. What ever you do never pull your head out of the sand. I find your posts highly entertaining.

How desperate are you..? The trade deal isn't yet in place. We're still working from old framework. Let's check in after Trump gets his trade deal. Even you have to be smarter than this. Right? (wishful thinking maybe)
Ah, so we're still waiting on the winning to begin.

Sorta like that NK denuclearization deal.
And the improved Iran denuclearization deal.
And the TTP replacement deal.
And the new climate deal.
And the new trade deal with Germany (*snicker*)
And the middle class tax cut deal.

Wake me when the frost thaws, this is going to be a long winter.

I think you're missing the point. This thread is about economic news as due to Trump's policies. Criminal activity related to Trump deserves its own thread, which already exists. These are desperate attempts by the anti-Trump brigade to tarnish the stellar jobs report.
Correction, this is a new thread about economic news and Trump.

A new one was started because your previous one was such a clusterfuck of incompetence, flailing and market meltdown you abandoned it, laid low, and waited until some scrap of good news came up so you could pop up and pray everyone had amnesia.

That being said, I'm happy to see that Trump has turned his attention and aura of fuck-ups and disaster elsewhere (shutdown) and the market is able to stabilize and mount some measure of recovery.

Due to The Motherfucker, my 401k still closed in the red for the year, and we're still down 10% off the recent highs.

I pine for days when his MF'ers tweets were just about lying about cheating on his wife and gushing over racist conspiracy theories.

I believe people who think Trump has strong business acumen formed that opinion based on a character he played on The Apprentice. Up until that point he was a failure. Nothing more than a D list celebrity who frequented Howard Stern to keep his name in the news. He parlayed The Apprentice schtick into a brand he has relentlessly peddled ever sense. A pied piper to the minimally exceptional.

There has been great progress on everything you have there. He's done the right thing in those situations.

The producer of the Apprentice was Mark Burnett. The producer of the Trump presidency is Vladimir Putin.

China never before imported rice from us. Never. You're having a tough time this morning already.
"Negotiations on opening China’s rice market to the US started more than a decade ago. China’s demands for rice surged after it joined the World Trade Organisation in 2001."

https://www.scmp.com/news/china/dip...na-gives-final-approval-imports-rice-us-after

"U.S. rice futures had little reaction to the announcement, declining by 7 cents to $10.06 per cwt."

Gee, and here I really thought Trump had something to do with it.
