Recession fears may be seeping into the national conversation, but President Trump continues to boast about how great the American economy is — “the best in the world, by far,” Mr. Trump tweeted a few days ago.

Time for a reality check on Mr. Trump’s economic accomplishments, using two key measuring sticks: how well the economy is doing, compared with its performance under President Barack Obama’s leadership, and whether it has performed up to Mr. Trump’s promises. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/08/27/opinion/trump-obama-economy.html

Round 1
Pro
Forfeited
Con
Obama failed to fuck things up. He regressed the economy from imploding. Trump has successfully progressed the economy towards its demise.
Round 2
Pro
Forfeited
Con
Trump has progressed the US economy to bankruptcy. Obama failed to.
