As President Trump and the rest of the country grapple with an economic downturn and sky-high unemployment rates amid the coronavirus crisis, some Democrats reportedly worry that an explosive economic recovery in the fall could revive Trump’s lagging political fortunes — and boost his chance at reelection.
Politico reports that Jason Furman, a top economist in the Obama administration and now a Harvard professor, told a bipartisan group of policymakers last month that “We are about to see the best economic data we’ve seen in the history of this country.”
Of course Democrats are terrified of a booming economy under this great President. Americans will prosper yet again, the tsunami of illegal freeloaders has been blocked, and the #PartyOfMisery is stuck with racist old hack #JoeBiden as their candidate. https://t.co/KuBZgtxo4y

Today is Tuesday. That means @realDonaldTrump is lying, again. Dems were writing pandemic legislation in February while @POTUS was downplaying it. Trump’s myopic focus on China allowed the virus to come in from Europe. Failure to test allowed it to spread.#TuesdayThoughts https://t.co/nJ9cMCSsIw
