    This rate cut is an indication of a worldwide economic downturn, not a US upturn.

  2. this is a HORRIBLE idea.

  3. The meltdown is now starting …… hold my beer.

    The US is like a juggler, trying to keep the world’s economies up in the air and stable without dropping any balls… then you elect Trump to tickle the juggler. Knock it off.

  5. Trumpie’s pumping up the economy for the 2020 Elections. The fundamentals are not there for such actions & this is a play on SpankyPant’s part to pump & dump! There will be a huge crash & we will all be holding the bag while Trumpie try’s to enrich himself & leave us holding the bag so to speak.

  6. trump should not put pressure on FED ever, NOW it will big down turn of the US economy and trump.

    • Not. Now the economy will grow further.

    • ARMYRANGER Trump will kick out the Fed that took USA captive in 1913 …… Globalist s on their way out !! America is being taken back by the Americans!!πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

  7. Trump knows this is a bad sign for him. The ” correction ” starting just in time for 2020 election !

    Rate cut? Huh? My spidey senses are tingling.

  9. The slow down is the result of the Trump Trade War.

  10. I guess the “rocket fuel” Trump tax cuts have burned out?!! I remember that Paul Ryan classified it as a “middle-class tax cut.” What a joke!

  11. Stock market is overheating, artificially inflated by tax fuelled corporate buy backs, and it’s peaking.

    Why are they lowering rates if the economy is doing so great ??

  13. 2008 The Great Housing Crash ! ! Bummer, Are we in For Another Depression ? trump is bleeding the American Piggie Bank Dry.

    American money is about to DROP in value. The Trump Recession is coming.

      This is how Republican elites gain wealth. We lose everything, they pick it up for nothing.
      Every. Single. Time.
      Yet mooks keep voting for them.

    • @Dude McDudeson right, even win it back. We will be right back down this road again. With promises the invisible hand of capitalism will make them rich through hard work alone.

  15. The Trump’s greatest economy ever in the American history still needs a rate cut? Super WEIRD! Something don’t match!

      The booming economy is, dare I say it…
      Fake news

    • It’s all lies , they are going to collapse the economy and it’s not Trump , it’s the ones that tell him what to do .

    • @Jeep 4low Would that be Stephen Miller? Trump’s tariffs are having a negative impact, just like those in the know told him BUT Trump thought he knew better.

    • @Jeep 4low no it’s trump and his lead by his gut approach. Just stop it, there is no direct secret master. Do corporations have influence over his gut. Absolutely, but the tariffs are all trump.

    • Find out which mega-corps or international entities take out loans…

  16. Buckling to the power of Trump !

  17. This is a fake great economy … America is loosing the trade war…less investments and recession is comingπŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”vsπŸ™ˆπŸ™ŠπŸ™‰

  18. Keep the Ponzi scheme going just a little longer so the Big Boys can get out, and flee to their islands and bunkers.

    • Then the bombs will drop . They will hide in their bunkers until we’re all dead . Or crank up all these towers they had built so fast . Why do you think they keep spraying us with those spray planes ?

  19. Money has been free for five years too long now, what will happen in the next downturn when you are out of ammo

    Trump’s great economy is like him being rich : golden decorated house and private plane at the surface while being in a mountain of debt.
