why then did Trump say OPEC is ripping us off? Tax cuts are used when the economy is in trouble.
Trump used them when our economy is growing. To get a sluggish economy going lowering interest
rates and tax cuts are used. At this point another tax cut is unlikely and cuts in interest rates also
are unlikely. When the economy slows down and a recession hits in 2019 or 2020, what do we do then?
Tax cuts helped out the wealthy, Trump called his friends and told them they are getting a tax cut.
Corporations took the tax cuts and bought back shares of their company. that will benefit their
share holders, not the American people. Obama,s economic policies are working and Trump takes
credit for it. Remember the economy under Bush tanked big time, helping Obama win.
Also we have certain business cycles which are in no way related to what Trump does.
Policy changes to benefit the economy take at least 18 months to work, often longer than that.
