It’s no secret that the Democratic party and its allies in the media are salivating to defeat President Donald Trump next year. And they know that their best shot will be if the economy — which has been going gangbusters for the past several years — starts to slow. Incumbent presidents often have a tough time earning re-election in tough economic conditions.

Are you fearful of a recession? The media is doing all they can to convince you one in on the way.
