Trump Says The Way President Obama Is Running The Country Is "Stupid"

The United States could soon become a large-scale Spain or Greece, teetering on the edge of financial ruin.

That’s according to Donald Trump, who painted a very ugly picture of where this country is headed under its current leadership. Trump made the comments during a recent appearance on Fox News’ “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren.”

According to Trump, the United States is no longer a rich country. “When you’re not rich, you have to go out and borrow money. We’re borrowing from the Chinese and others. We’re up to $16 trillion in debt.”

It’s clear that Trump holds President Barack Obama responsible for the ballooning debt. Trump stated that the way Obama is running the country is “stupid.”

He goes on to point out that the downgrade of U.S. debt is inevitable.

“We are going up to $16 trillion [in debt] very soon, and it’s going to be a lot higher than that before he gets finished. When you have [debt] in the $21-$22 trillion, you are talking about a downgrade no matter how you cut it.”

Ballooning debt and a credit downgrade aren’t Trump’s only worries for this country. He says that the official unemployment rate of 8.2 percent “isn’t a real number” and that the real figure is closer to 15 percent to 16 percent. He even mentioned that some believe the unemployment rate to be as high as 21 percent.

No, because "stupidly" would modify a verb and not the noun "way, or manner". "Stupidly way"? = not correct.

Stupid way or that way is stupid is correct

Actually it does matter in websites such as the DU. Especially if you post something they do not like.

Post an unemployment number in the DU and they will reply with suggestions on where commas should have been placed in a particular sentence.

I got kicked out after my second post back in 2007.

I was masking as a Hillary supporter but I went overboard with my Hillary “Saddam needs to go” quotes she had made back in 1998

It is the definition of an echo chamber. You can’t have a differing point of view and stay - you just can’t. I tried half a dozen times.

It’s no wonder they don’t see any other points of view... they don’t see any other points of view! lol

Ignorance can be cured, if you let it.

Media won’t like this...Trump just insulted the vast majority of their viewers!

He should have used ‘imbecilic’; imbeciles wouldn’t mind having their abilities equated to Obama’s.

It’s not stupid if you want to establish yourself as dictator.

Wiedemer says, “The data is clear, 50% unemployment, a 90% stock market drop, and 100% annual inflation . . . starting in 2012.”

Should this dire prediction come even partially true we could well see all out revolution in this country with angry mobs storming Washington, DC and demanding every member of Congress resign, all government bureaucrats be fired and their agencies disbanded and Obama be impeached if not arrested for treason.

Sounds good to me! When do we start?

The funny thing is ...we have the power to do it. We’re just too busy hangin’ out at our BBQ’s, sports events, diddling with our I-phones, etc. to even consider it ...

If it actually gets to the point where angry mobs actually storm DC then resignations will be long past possible - there will be serious blood in the streets with people looking for hangings.

I suspect members of Congress will be long gone...

I thought of going undercover there also but I couldn’t do it. I’d last about two posts too.

BTW...nobody ever mentions it but $16 trillion / 80 millon taxpayers = $200,000 per taxpayer. So, a married couple's share of the national debt is $400,000.

How's that for insolvent?
