    That one seems to be a before they started "negotiating" picture, the small talk period while gathering, even the Japanese haven't arrived yet.

    Of course she wasn't happy after the negotiations started because she didn't get what she wanted.

    As an aside, I find it comical that your wife likes Trump because she thinks he's "strong", often times those who pound their chest hardest and lash out the most aggressively are actually the weakest.
    I’m not an economist and I am always extremely skeptical of the governent no matter who is in office. Couldn’t tell you about the economy other than it seems better which is really important.

    I guess my deal is that the economy is better, Trump seems to be a man of action and is implementing more of what he said he would than anyone I can t remember (wether you agree with those things is a separate issue) and there is a chance that the entire world could be safer. To me there is so much to celebrate right now. Trump is a meanie head and acts like a buffoon most of the time, I agree. Most of the time he is an embarrassment anytime he speaks or tweets.

    Why do you say the economy is better?

    I'm genuinely curious, not necessarily looking to argue, but as far as the stock market at large the past 1.5 or so years seems to mostly be a continuation of what was happening since about 2012.

    Are you seeing something personally on a more micro level?

    Yep, and the left would lose even more credibility. Oh, and another election.

    I don't pay too much attention to the stock market unless it is over a measurable amount of time.

    Unemployment is down, which is a huge indicator. The free market tells us what the economy is doing more than other things IMO. Consumer confidence is up by a decent margin. Money is generally moving much better.

    Again, I am not an economist but much of the economy has to do with consumer confidence. We have a bad habit of ruining things for ourselves by all of the doom and gloom.

    “He is very talented,” Trump said of Kim at a news conference. “Anybody that takes over a situation like he did, at 26 years of age, and is able to run it and run it tough — I don't say it was nice or I don't say anything about it — he ran it. Very few people at that age — you can take one out of 10,000, probably, couldn't do it.”
