"Here Comes the Trump Slump" warned yet another anti-Trump column from New York Times columnist Paul Krugman last week. This is the same Paul Krugman who predicted the stock market would "never" recover from its initial sell-off on news of a Trump victory. He also said Trump's election would usher in a global recession. Oops. He suggests that a slowdown could so damage Trump's reelection prospects that the president will probably pressure federal bean-counters to inflate the numbers. Man, this guy really hates Trump.
You can't blame Demos for trying to cook up a recession. They know it's the only sure-fire way to take down the president. Yes, Ukraine is a mess, but voters will tire of the bickering, the lines are already drawn and it is unlikely that many will change their vote based on an extremely partisan impeachment inquiry. A real recession, though, would undercut Trump's reelection prospects, which is unfortunately something the Dems are rooting for.
