    Also, Trump is admittedly awful in some ways but I'm curious to ask what people more people think he could have done for the US economy.

    Deregulation was huge for the business environment and unleashing of animal spirits in 2017 and tax reform is going to be huge this year.
    that's pretty easy. the GOP tax cut was badly designed, even if the standard for judgment is based upon conservative/supply-side principles. it's inefficient.

    moreover, regarding the "unleashing of animal spirits in 2017", courtesy of the IMF:

    don't see this extraordinary unleashing that you're referring to, in comparison to Obama's track record or to the other international markets.

    i expect 2018 will be another bull year, given the existing fundamentals. the tax law will help incrementally, although of course not by nearly enough to pay for itself. the Tax Policy Center estimates that the law will increase the economy by 0.7% in 2018 relative to the CBO baseline.
    There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "My ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."- Isaac Asimov

    I am not a leftist; my family are aristocrats, I have a signet ring with our coat of arms and we come from Central Europe. We fought the Soviets and communism in general because it stole our home - not to mention the lives of millions of others so we got off lucky. We also fought the fascist imperialism which was just as evil. It would absurd for me to even think of voting for a socialist Party - let alone a commie or a fascist.

    I reject totally your President because he is an absurdity, a traitor to Western civilization, a terrible liar and rude. Forgive me for including 'rudeness' to his list of faults and call me 'quaint' if you will but I happen to think it advisable that a Head of State be polite in public. That does not make me a leftist. I dispute his lies - not your faith.

    Don't worry about it. Trump is not your President. It's not like the Ukrainian Government needs any lessons from Trump on absudity and traitors of the day.
