What exactly do you think he did?  He was elected with a good economy that was growing.  He's made some poor fiscal decisions that are going to cause problems in the next down cycle.  You should try thinking.  

 

WHAT WORLD have YOU been living in?  Donald Trump has BROUGHT JOBS back to America... JOBS that Obama said were gone forever... HE has made us energy independent, caused WAGES to rise for the first time in 10 YEARS, Lowered Taxes, Defeated ISIS in Iraq and Syria, is BUILDING the WALL, is working to CONTROL illegal immigration, AND, has restored our Judiciary as one that will FIGHT for the Constitution and NOT try to subvert it... the 9th circuit is on the verge of becoming a Conservative body for the first time in 40 years !!

 

Democrats on the other hand,  ARE... the party of:

 

HATE,

LIES,

DIVISION,

POVERTY

SQUALOR, and

CORRUPTION

 

JUST ASK the Democrats who live in Democrat controlled CESSPOOLS like:  Baltimore, Newark St. Louis, East St Louis, Chicago, and <Insert the name of a large U>S. city here> !!

 

There REALLY isn't anything more to say !!

You need to get you meds checked.  I know the right wing fake news tell's these lies everyday, but let's do some reality to the situation.  He inherited an economy on the uptick.  He has not contributed to that.  As a matter of fact he can only now take credit for anything good or bad.  He hasn't brought any jobs back to the US dingbat.  None.  Manufacturing is gone.  A combination of robotics and cheap foreign labor is to blame.  He has not defeated ISIS.  Fact check, there is no wall going up.  He lies about that.  You really should watch the real news.  Trump wants to be a dictator.  The last think he is doing is protecting the constitution.  You're a lost cause.  It's too bad.  You're probably not that bad of a person.  You're just not terribly bright.  You are unaware because you voluntarily keep yourself safe and sound from facts and immersed in the propaganda and lies from the worst President in History.  You live in a fantasy world and have no idea what's actually happening.  It's sad.

Breitbart - Questionable Source - Right Bias

QUESTIONABLE SOURCE

A questionable source exhibits one or more of the following: extreme bias, consistent promotion of propaganda/conspiracies, poor or no sourcing to credible information, a complete lack of transparency and/or is fake news. Fake News is the deliberate attempt to publish hoaxes and/or disinformation for the purpose of profit or influence (Learn More). Sources listed in the Questionable Category may be very untrustworthy and should be fact checked on a per article basis. Please note sources on this list are not considered fake news unless specifically written in the reasoning section for that source. See all Questionable sources.

 
  • Overall, we rate Breitbart Questionable based on extreme right wing bias and publication of numerous false claims.

Detailed Report

Reasoning: Extreme Right, Propaganda, Conspiracy, Failed Fact Checks
Country: USA
World Press Freedom Rank: USA 48/180

History

Breitbart News is a conservative news and opinion website founded in 2007 by Andrew Breitbart (1969–2012). He was a conservative commentator and entrepreneur “a former liberal from Los Angeles who became a conservative” wrote Jonah Engel Bromwich of the NY Times. Breitbart News under his leadership generated news coverage that was praised by the right for its populist, anti-establishment voice, on the left however, he was also accused of being a provocateur and misleading. Andrew Breitbart also co-founded the Huffington Post.

After Andrew Breitbart died in 2012, former investment banker for Goldman Sachs, Stephen Bannon became the executive chairman of Breitbart. Under Bannon the website became more nationalist and a vocal outlet of the alt-right movement. According to Sarah Posner from Mother Jones, during her interview with Bannon, he described Breitbart News as “a platform to the alt-right.” Bannon, who was chief executive of the Trump campaign, and then White House chief strategist for seven months before returning to Breitbart News, had stepped down from his position at Breitbart in 2018.

Larry Solov is the co-founder and CEO of Breitbart News and Alex Marlow serves as editor-in-chief.

Funded by / Ownership

After the death of Andrew Breitbart in 2012, Larry Solov became CEO and president of Breitbart News. In 2017, according to Politico, Larry Solov revealed the owner of Breitbart as “himself, founder Andrew Breitbart’s widow, Susie Breitbart, and the Republican mega donor family, the Mercers.” Further, Solov also made a statement that he wants “to disclose as little as possible about financial and ownership structure.”

Analysis / Bias

Breitbart consist of various sections called Big Government, Big Journalism, Big Hollywood, National Security, Tech, Sports, and Wired.

Breitbart uses sensational emotionally loaded language in their headlines such as “Obama Loses 2 Million+ Followers During Twitter Fake Account Purge.” They utilize sources such as tabloid entertainment magazine Variety, and credible sources such as Bloomberg. as well as factually mixed sources such as the Daily Mail. Under the Big Hollywood section they publish tabloid stories such as “Fashion Notes: Melania Trump is Posh and Proper for Final Day in England” utilizing fashion sources such as farfetch.com

In general, the majority of published stories favor the right and are highly pro-Trump in tone and story selection.

A factual search reveals numerous failed fact checks by IFCN Fact Checkers. Here are just a few of many as an example:

I think you need an economics lesson.  The Donald had nothing to do with wages going up.  The good economy he inherited meant we have lower unemployment.  Supply and Demand raises the wages.  Got it.  The tax cut was foolish.  If he was a real fiscal conservative he would have cut spending and paid down debt.  That is what you are supposed to do in up cycles.  It's not the popular thing to do, but it is the responsible thing to do.  Dip Sh*t Donny just did what Ryan told him to do.  

Obama quietly deported more illegals than anyone has.  The wall is would be extremely expensive and ineffective.  If Chump was a thinking man (hahahaaha I know right) we would address the source of the problem.  The poverty of the Central American countries who feed the US with drugs.  It would be cheaper and far more effective.  Instead every hillbilly who wants to be billy bad ass is incapable of thinking on a higher level.  Again you are lost.  The Dem's are not everything your handlers say they are.  They tell you that cause they know your not terribly bright and it makes them rich.  They've got you.

A drop in the poverty rate for Black Philadelphians reported in recent census estimates has been met with skepticism by some who say the numbers are moving in the opposite direction.

The poverty rate for Blacks and African-Americans was estimated to decrease from 30.8 percent in 2016 to 27.1 percent in 2017, according to the U.S. Census Bureau’s annual American Community Survey. The margin of error was 1.9 percent.

the rate has steadily dropped since the 60s 

The conservatives are wrong. Giving stuff to poor people makes them less poor. But this does not mean that the left liberals are correct either. It could be true that we need to spend trillions more on poverty alleviation, certainly it's possible that that is true. But we must actually look at how much poverty is left after the things we already do before we make that decision. And it's not entirely obvious that under 5% of the population being in poverty is a scandal crying out to the very heavens now, is it? Nor one that needs trillions spent upon it. Agreed, opinions can differ here but we're not exactly going to get the populace marching on DC over this, are we?

The War on Poverty worked for the real poverty rate in the US is 4.8%. most of the drop is and always has been due to social programshttps://www.forbes.com/sites/timworstall/2016/08/24/the-war-on-poverty-worked-the-real-us-poverty-rate-is-4-8/#5a9184b31a38

Studies have shown that in welfare states poverty decreases after countries adopt welfare programs.[2] Empirical evidence suggests that taxes and transfers considerably reduce poverty in most countries whose welfare states commonly constitute at least a fifth of GDP.[3][4][5][6][7][8] In 2013, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development asserted that welfare spending is vital in reducing the ever expanding global wealth gap.[9]

Timothy Smeeding used data from the Luxembourg Income Study to determine the effectiveness of anti-poverty and welfare programs on poverty reduction. The data for all the countries was from the year 2000 with the exception of the United Kingdom and the Netherlands for which the data was from 1999.[1]

Two studies compare countries internationally before and after implementing social welfare programs. Using data from the Luxembourg Income Study, Bradley et al. and Lane Kenworthy measure the poverty rates both in relative terms (poverty defined by the respective governments) and absolute terms (poverty defined by 40% of United States median income), respectively. Kenworthy's study also adjusts for economic performance and shows that the economy made no significant difference in uplifting people out of poverty.

The studies look at the different countries from 1960 to 1991 (Kenworthy) and from 1970 to 1997 (Bradley et al.). Both these periods are roughly when major welfare programs were implemented such as the War on Poverty in the United States. The results of both studies show that poverty has been significantly reduced during the periods when major welfare programs were created.
