MFP accurately projects Trump’s presidency

MFP & co. Published January 20, 2017

Economy

If he just leaves everything alone, Trump’s economy should be the best in 16 years…

Inflation-adjusted avg. GDP growth Jobs added (millions) Avg. UE rate
Clinton 3.9 23 5
Reagan 3.5 16 7.5
Carter (single term) 3.3 10 6.5
Trump ~3 ~10 ~5
Bush (single term) 2.3 2 6
W. 2.1 2 5
Obama 1.5 10 7.5

Kellyanne Conway

She quits to “spend more time with her family” (aka make millions running a super PAC) within ~2 years.

Nikki Haley

She quits to “spend more time with her family” (aka make millions sitting on a corporate board) within ~2 years.

GOP keeps Senate

The Senate is not in play. Democrats have 4-12 vulnerable Senate seats to the GOP’s 2 (Dean Heller in NV and Jeff Flake in AZ).

In the House, the GOP has a 241-194 majority. Democrats would need a 2010 Tea Party-like wave (Republicans picked up 58 seats) to recapture the House.

Obamacare repeal

The failure of both Obamacare and Trumpcare will pave the way for single-payer.

SCOTUS

Justices Breyer (78), Kennedy (80), and Ginsburg (83) will try to hang on until 2020– but Trump should get 2-4 SCOTUS picks in his 1st term.

Manufacturing

No amount of deregulation can make the American worker preferable to foreign slave labor. Attempts to artificially inflate American wages through protectionist trade and/or immigration policy will only hasten the transition towards automation– which will displace far more American workers than globalization.

Infrastructure

Trump will get his infrastructure bill.

The Wall

There will be a few miles of an actual wall. The rest will be rickety fencing here and there.

Dreamers

“Dreamers” get amnesty after “extreme vetting”.

Illegal aliens

No mass deportations. Amnesty in exchange for E-Verify, national ID card, and increased funding for “border security” (aka $$$ to border patrol unions).

Police state

E-Verify, national ID card, and other measures used to track illegal aliens and terrorists will eventually be used by a Democrat POTUS to persecute “radical” conservatives and “extreme” patriots.

D’oh!

Radical Islam

In his inaugural address, Trump promised to “eradicate radical Islamic terrorism”.

At least $1 trillion (in bombing sand, foreign aid, etc.) will be wasted on this endeavor.

Disclaimer

Everything will be cool, unless there is a major terrorist attack– at which point, Trump will go all Revenge of the Sith

Green New Deal

MFP accurately reax to the Green New Deal

The Green New Deal presupposes that recent global temperature and weather patterns (~500 out of 4.5 billion years) are "correct" and should be frozen in place in perpetuity.

Tea Party conservatives are “morons”

Each night, Tucker Carlson trolls liberal elites with his plucky yet affable demeanor. But this character was only written 3 years ago by the legendary Roger Ailes.

“He’s hooked on golf like drug addicts are hooked on drugs…he used to do pot, he used to do coke, now he does golf!”

This is not to say that Emma Dumont is smarter than Kaileigh Brandt (their diverging interests makes that difficult to quantify with anything approaching certainty) or more carnally desirable than Mélissa Theuriau circa 2005.

Actually, terrorism was so much worse in the 1980’s We live in a veritable Utopian paradise compared to the violence of the past.
Contrary to the ratings-driven cable news narrative-- which has a financial stake in frightening elderly, low-information voters-- there are fewer terrorist incidents today than any time since the advent of modern terrorism. Read more »
