    It's funny I just read a report with actual statistics saying that wages are rising at a faster pace then inflation because of record breaking highs of unemployment. You liberals are dumb as rocks. There will be no recession.

                        Leftist desperation on display. The Russia collusion delusion failed, Trump is a racist white Nazi has been over played, so now it's time for the desperate, leftist propaganda media to push a false narrative about Trump's superb economy. Trump 2020. Get use to it.

                                This country spends more than it takes in. With that said, it doesn't take a rocket science to know that a recession is bound to happen.

                                    The fact is these people are fear-mongering the only factor that has any indication that we are going into a recession has not been accurate since the 60s and is now non in void, but with a pure hatred that they have for the president, they will fear Mongrel the people into thinking we are going into a recession, that will ultimately stop the public from spending. Which will give them their wish resulting in a recession. I could give a damn about this president but the fact that they would stoop this low for a 1.24% chance of a recession and push it as hard as they are right now because the fact that it will cause a recession if you scare the people enough, is sad it's very very sad! Here's the facts that they just nonchalantly skip over every growth in the economy has grown over expectations every quarter. GDP higher-than-expected job growth higher than expected! Please people F the president! look at the facts. Do not fall for this game or really will cause a recession.

                                                    Actually when there is an inverted yield curve it cost more to borrow short term than long term, which is the case... think he said it wrong

                                                          0:31 Mr King, the normal yield curve is for short-term interest rates to be lower and long-term interest rates to be higher. An inverted yield curve is when short-term interest rates are higher than long-term interest rates. Your explanation was *_inverted._* Please make a *_note_* of it. 😎

                                                              You have dems on TV wanting a recession so it'll hurt Trump, an obviously biased Fed who has raised rates repeatedly, and now it's the lock- step narrative we're definitely headed for disaster, and it is unavoidable with Trump as President. Only a democrat could save us, right? Lol...okaay.
