Trump’s Success? Blame the “Recovery”

This is among those friend-of-friend stories that nobody believes. In cases like this, I actually know the people involved, so i could inform you the simple truth is.

It comes down to my friend telling me recently in regards to a conversation she’d with her husband. He was part of a lunchtime discussion at work in regards to the rise in popularity of Mr . trump when his colleague said: “I don’t understand why individuals are following Trump. America does really well. The economy has recovered. We have lots of jobs. Why would anyone be unhappy?”

In a certain slice of America, that perception is reality… though in reality, it’s really a false perception.

Which is the story I want to inform you of today — the story of an America that’s decidedly not doing well. Never. It’s the story of disconnected but indisputable facts, and how, when you position them to the bigger jigsaw puzzle, the resulting picture can be a danger signal for the future in the future.

It is not an email many Americans wish to hear. I don’t want to listen to it. But truth is what they’re, which are the sad and troubling information about our America today…

Between two-thirds and three-quarters of american citizens, according to income, would battle to come up with $1,000 in the crisis, in accordance with a fresh poll from your Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.

A Fed study in April discovered that 47% of american citizens would battle to develop $400.

Stop and think for a moment about the shock price of time. Half the country -half of what’s supposedly the richest country on earth! — cannot scrounge up $400. How is that even remotely the meaning of “rich”?
