Trumpicans: are you still happy that your "Nationalist" leader is doing a good job?

A whopping great correction is threatening to turn into a fully blown bear market. Dow and Nasdaq in free fall, the worst day since Dubya's GFC. And your beloved leader (who, according to Ivana, slept with a copy of Mein Kampf beside the bed) has just embraced a term synonymous with fascist extremism - indeed the word "Nazi" is derived from the German word for "nationalist".

    Yes, I am. We should put the USA first. As Canada should Canada first, Austrailia should put Australia....
    If we do not look out for ourselves no one else will.

  • Yep, he's putting America first, unlike giving it away to illegals like the mob party.

    So he read Mein Kampf. And?

    I read it as a required text for a class called Personality and Leadership in the MBA program at a very prestigious, politically lefty Ivy League university. And there happened to be students in the class who were Asian, African-American, Jewish, and members of other minority groups. Reading it helped us learn what made Hitler an effective leader. It didn't affect our political views or turn us into Nazis. We also read The Autobiography of Malcolm X. That didn't turn us into racists or civil rights activists either.

    He just called himself a nationalist. That's what Hitler, Mussolini and the architects of South Africa's apartheid regime were. And I'm prepared to bet you didn't sleep with the book beside your bed. 
    As for the point you didn't address - Trump fans often point to the market as the reason they support him. Thanks in no small part to his pointless trade war with China, it just crashed.

    Even though the DJIA was back up more than 400 points today. Securities markets rise and fall in response to many factors, including the direction of interest rates as well as bond and currency markets, regardless of who sits in the White House. If enough American voters are dissatisfied with the guy, we have another election coming up in 2020 and a chance to select somebody else then. All of your complaining, hand-wringing, and sturm und drang down under won't get him out of office before then.

    If the Dems get control of the House next month, Trump will be gone before June. Impeachment is inevitable. Nepotism. Obstruction of justice. Receipt of emoluments. Incitement to violence (the pipe bombs were no accident, Trump's inflammatory speeches are the direct cause). Interference with Presidential records.

    If you say so. But even if he is impeached, which is not even guaranteed, the power to convict and remove him from office lies with the Senate, which is likely to remain in GOP control. It actually is quite likely that, health permitting, he remains in the White House until 2021 or 2025.
