unemployment and growth rates are partly from measures taken by Obama administration, effects of which were seen in trump years plus partly due to US economy having the largest bull run since existence. https://www.theguardian.com/business/2018/aug/22/wall-street-record-longest-rally-history-bull-marketunemployment is down, growth rates are up. What more do you want.
See, this whole thing about trade war remains to be seen. Trump managed to strong arm Mexico & Canada into a new FTA. They will be using the same tactics with others. China imports only 150 bn, US imports over 600bn from them. Who do you think is going to be hurting more
So its the 'threat' of trade war without needing to have one that is the idea. because trade wars are bad and nobody needs them. Who blinks first in this game of chicken.
Same with sanctions. You want to trade with the US then do it on their terms or stay out.
Check his ratings
Unlike other polling companies those guys actually predicted he would win back in Nov '16.
Total approve into the 50's now thanks to USMCA. It needs to stay there until Nov and he's good at the midterms.
also check his ratings from start of the year to now. Despite many many scandals, theres' just a difference of +/-5 points. I think chinese are just waiting for midterms results before making another move. Its just a waiting game and effects will be hard once market inevitably crashes. There are already a lot of experts saying a correction is coming but all are ignoring them just like they did in 2008
