Rush Limbaugh made one scary prediction about 2020 that Trump did not want to hear
Rush Limbaugh stood apart from the political herd in 2016 by constantly declaring Donald Trump would win when all the experts wrote Trump off.
Americans pay attention to his political forecasts.
And Rush Limbaugh made one scary prediction about 2020 that Trump did not want to hear.
Americans were rocked by an 800 point dip in the stock market this week based on fears a recession would hit in 2020.
Productivity, job and wage growth, and retail sales remained strong so there was no real data to support the notion a recession was due.
But the Washington, D.C. establishment would like one to hit next year to damage Trump’s re-election.
And Rush Limbaugh predicted that the dip in the market was a “dry run” for the media and the Washington, D.C. “Swamp” to try to scare voters into thinking there will be a recession next year before voters head to the polls.
So I’ll tell you what I think yesterday was. Are you ready? I think yesterday was a dry run. I think yesterday was a dry run for later on in the election season. I think they wanted to see how they could succeed, if they could succeed, in causing the bottom to fall out of Trump public opinion by claiming that Trump’s policies are destroying the United States economy.
They couldn’t stick with it for more than one day because it isn’t true, folks. There’s no truth to the fact that we’re on the verge of a recession. We’re the only nation in the world with a demonstrably growing economy. We are not on the verge of a recession here. Quite the opposite. We still have economic growth that was not seen in eight years of the Obama Administration, which is another thing that is irritating a lot of people.
So I think it was a dry run. I think it was an attempt to see how it played, an attempt to see if they could do it, an attempt to see if they could affect pretty much blanket media coverage with the drop of a dime that we are in a recession or on the verge of a recession. So they’ve set it up. They didn’t say we’re in a recession. They said we’re on the verge. It’s just around the corner. They’re using the inverted yield curve, which, of course, nobody understands. And it’s even more difficult to try to explain to somebody what it is.
The booming economy is expected to be Donald Trump’s strongest talking point in his 2020 re-election.
The only presidents who lost re-election — Herbert Hoover, Jimmy Carter, and George H.W. Bush — saw the economy hit a recession in the year they ran for re-election.
And that is exactly how the Washington, D.C. establishment plans to defeat Donald Trump.
