Germany 2nd quarter GDP -.1%, thats not good
And the forecast for 3rd quarter looks worse. EU as a whole is teetering on a recession. With them already doing QE and some countries with negative interest rates plus staring at a Brexit, oh boy.

3 negative quarters of GDP = recession. We do not need Europe going into a recession as that will effect is somewhat.

The fact the rest of the world is doing shitty shows just how good of a job Trump is doing with our economy.

Not to hijack, but the Brexit vote was held in 2016 and the Brit's still aren't out. Unreal

We are a net exporter of oil now. We are still having kids (at least compared to Europe and China). Our currency is the backstop of the world and our Navy is the only blue water Navy on the planet.

In other words, we are pretty well vertically integrated as an economic power. Trump knows this. It's why he told Merkel to get fricked. It's why we told the Brits to figure it out with Iran.

I hate to say it, if China goes tits up along with Europe you'll see them fighting over scraps like they have their entire lives while we hum along.

We won’t be humming along if Europe and China go into a downturn.

Trust me, when and if the shite hits the fan over there we wont be dodging bullets and fighting over scraps like they will. To me, thats humming along and ten times better than the domestic insurrection China is going to have to deal with.

Recessions usually cross borders of major trading partners. An EU recession is really not a good thing for us, so let’s hope they are able to pull out of it.

Worse case scenario would be an EU recession spilling into the US right before the election and economic ignorants blaming that downturn on trump. We have a lot of economic ignorants.

Most EU countries are run by Globalists/Collectivists who are/have been pushing Leftwing Socialist and Progressive ideals, and who are/have been overrun by Muslims who have become a dependent class and/or are taking swaths of low skilled jobs away from locals.

The only people who didn’t (wouldn’t) see this coming are Liberals/Lefties. Because they’d rather virtue signal over inclusion, multi-culturalism, and identity politics, and pander to hopefully a new voting base than actually consider what’s best for their countries and existing peoples. Hence why “nationalism” and “patriotism” are now dirty bigoted words and you can be arrested in some countries for using stereotypic language.

And the uber rich are just getting more and more rich off this shite. They figured out long ago that causing division and conflict could be exploited to gain wealth and power.

The commonly accepted definition of a recession is TWO consecutive quarters of negative GDP, not three.

Actually I believe I read recently that our replacement rate finally dropped below the death rate. If it wasn’t for immigration we would be experiencing a population decline. And whites had the lowest birth rates of all races, but all American races were below replacement.

With immigration, whites will be a minority very soon. Dark days ahead for the US in a couple decades

The rest of Europe doesn't have the benefit of Trump's massive stimulus package.
