And it's unclear how they would this week. Look at what's happened under President Trump even in this first six short six months you've seen consumer confidence at a sixteen year high you see unemployment at a record low you've seen labor participation rates rising incomes rising he's taken strong national security stances specifically with Syria following up on a promise that president Obama made and never completed which is if they use chemical weapons we would take action.

"If ObamaCare is hurting people, & it is, why shouldn't it hurt the insurance companies & why should Congress not be paying what public pays?", Trump wrote.
