Trump Tweets “Hope EVERYONE is Happy” for Wednesday’s Open Thread

For it’s just Wednesday the President has tweeted 3 times, two of those tweets happened shortly after midnight. He also re-tweeted 11 times, it’s possible some of his late Tuesday retweets following his campaign rally were issued after midnight, but as those are not time stamped by the retweeter it’s hard to say.

But he still has mostly acting Cabinet Members in key positions throughout his administration. But yeah, yay, Judges.

The New York Times reported on Monday that “The federal budget deficit surpassed $1 trillion in 2019, the Treasury Department reported on Monday, as tax cuts and spending increases continued to force heavy government borrowing amid a record-long economic expansion.”

The article goes on to say that the deficit growth from 2018-2019 was 17 percent according to Treasury Data. That was a slower deficit growth than in 2018 when the deficit grew at 28 percent.

According to the article last year’s growth would have been larger had it not been for “a series of interest-rate cuts undertaken in 2019 by the Federal Reserve, which helped to push the cost of new government debt down.”

Spending the article explains has grew by 7.5 percent for 2019 the fastest rate since 2009.

More from the article:

The Treasury Department data released on Monday shows how far Mr. Trump has fallen short of each of those promises. Tax revenues remain hundreds of billions of dollars below where the Congressional Budget Office predicted they would be before the tax-cut package was signed, while spending is accelerating at roughly the same pace as those 2017 projections.

In the three years Mr. Trump has been president, federal revenues have increased by an average of 2.6 percent per year. Spending has increased by 5.7 percent per year, and the deficit has grown by 20.8 percent per year.

Under Mr. Obama, receipts grew significantly faster, at an average of 3.9 percent per year. Spending grew at less than half the average annual rate than it has under Mr. Trump. The deficit has grown nearly four times as fast, on average, under Mr. Trump than it did under Mr. Obama. Mr. Trump has already added more to the national debt than Mr. Obama did in his entire second term — $2.6 trillion, compared with Mr. Obama’s $2.1 trillion.

So yeah, the economy is great, but government spending is still out of control. #Winning.

The clip used in the tweet President Trump referenced appears to be a clip from last nights Democratic Presidential Debate.

First, I have to say, there are times it’s glaring obvious that our current Impeached but still in Office President, has zero idea how our government works, this tweet is one of those times.

He is of course reacting to the presser held by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) in which she announced the House Democrats that would be responsible for presenting Articles of Impeachment to the Senate for the Senate trial.

“All of this work,” was done in the House, and on December 18th, 2019, the House voted to Impeach the President. The Senate however, is responsible for determining if the now Impeached President is removed from Office. Which means more work is required.

This post might be updated within reason.

This is an Open Thread.

I neglected to remember that the China trade deal Phase One was being signed today.
