Trump puts socialism on trial for 2020 elections

By David Singer - posted Friday, 15 March 2019

It is refreshing that Americans are now being presented with policies from the Democrats – rather than persistent bitter personal mudslinging aimed at discrediting Trump that has marked the last two years of Trump's presidency and is certainly not going to stop.

The voters will make up their own minds – contrasting the economic benefits of a booming domestic policy not seen in the USA for a long time - with GDP growth reaching 4.2 percent, unemployment at its lowest point in half a century, and a booming stock market – coupled with actual and proposed regulatory reform removing Government from controlling peoples' lives.

Democrats will be quick to play down the Republican claim that Democrat policies will see America becoming the United Socialist States of America – just as the Republicans will be focused on calling on Americans to reject socialism and maintain capitalism.


It promises to be a battle royal.
