President Donald Trump just couldn’t let Christmas Day end without telling another lie about how the country is doing.
As the nation entered the fourth day of a government shutdown amid the worst December for the stock market since the Great Depression on Tuesday, Trump insisted on Twitter, that everything is just fine in a tweet attacking the media.
I hope everyone, even the Fake News Media, is having a great Christmas! Our Country is doing very well. We are securing our Borders, making great new Trade Deals, and bringing our Troops Back Home. We are finally putting America First. MERRY CHRISTMAS! #MAGA

Again, the government is shut down and the stock market is tanking, yet Trump seriously wants everyone to believe that America is doing just swell under his sorry excuse for leadership.
The Dow Jones closed Christmas Eve with a 653 point free fall, adding even more bad news to a month that has been terrible for the stock market.
And Trump’s government shutdown is costing Americans billions as it drags on just because Trump is throwing a temper tantrum over wall funding he will not get and taxpayers do not want.
Furthermore, Trump surrendered to ISIS in Syria in a snap decision to withdraw American forces and abandon our allies in the process.
Also, Trump’s trade wars have contributed to the stock market nosedive by killing jobs and businesses as prices rise along with the trade deficit.
So, in fact, the country is NOT doing great at all, and it’s because of Trump.
Twitter users put him in his place.
China bought zero tons of soybeans for the first time in years in November, the stock market is having the worst December since the great depression because you are causing instability in the Fed, and as a middle income taxpayer I’m paying more than I did in 2017

You must be living in fantasy land! The market down 20% & headed further. Tariffs are causing other issues. Now I get why you went bankrupt a few times. Ego before logic.

You just can’t be inclusive and wish everyone a Merry Christmas without being divisive and nasty.

Dear Donald, obviously no one has ever taught you the appropriate way to communicate. You don’t say something positive followed by a negative. Additionally, you should be ashamed of yourself for not visiting our troops.

If the country’s doing so great, why is the stock market on a downward spiral?

Pathetic insecure baby.

We are aiding ISIS and the stock market is crashing. Thanks

JUST IN: The President of the United States proves once again that he is incapable of expressing any sincere, pleasant sentiment, only his usual narcissistic, self-pitying bitterness, clothed in the superficial cloak of his fake good wishes.

Your shutdown-that you are proud to own-is in full swing, every aspect of your life is under investigation, the market is in a full dive, and now a second child has died while in ICE custody. If that’s your idea of MAGA, count me (and the majority of the country) out.

1. There is no wall.
2. None of your trade deals have been ratified in Congress. You’ve already lost the trade war with China.
3. You’re withdrawing America away from the global table that shapes the collective future for the world.#TrumpResign #TrumpShutdown #treasonturd

You can’t even say Merry Christmas with class!

This Christmas is one of the most stressful and depressing Americans have ever had to endure, and Trump is the reason why.
