This is my opinion. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

“We’re going to work on getting the age up to 21 instead of 18,” Trump said at the White House today:

He's not King, so he'll have the same struggle to get anything passed as Obama did - unless the Republicans just roll over meekly, as they do.

Hmmm. Taking the 5th. Not proof, but certainly some smoke.

"Supreme Court rejects Trump over 'Dreamers' immigrants"
The justices, without dissent, turned down the administration's appeal which sought to go around the normal fedreal appeal process by petitioning the Supreme Court directly. While the Supreme Court did not rule on the merits of the case, and may hear the matter in the future, for now the March 5 deadline for dreamers is essentially moot.

Trump announces plans to run in 2020. Picks Texan as campaign chair. Approval rating higher than Obama's at same point. Has gotten 65% of goals completed. Faster than Regan. Kushner can't get security clearance. I was wrong here. But after reading this I'm still not sure.

Hope leaves the White House after being questioned 9 hours by intelligence committee on Russian collusion by Trump campaign.

Trump proposes tariffs on foreign steel and aluminum.

American steel and aluminum companies go up, rest of market tanks. Market now negative for the year.

A former adviser to President Trump sold off $31.3 million in stocks he owned in a steel-dependent company, just days before the president announced hefty tariffs on foreign-made steel.

W. Bush comments that Trump makes him look pretty good. I don't really remember W. Bush commenting on Obama. My memory is as Bush left office the Dow was down about 40% from where it was when he started 8 years before. After 8 years of Obama and 1 year of Trump my 401K is a lot happier than with Bush.

Steel and aluminum tariffs comment is still moving the market, now back up.

Not sure, but many on conservative radio people seem to think Mueller is over stepping, now there is collusion with the UAE. Then last night some former Trump guy was maybe drunk on TV.

There seem to be a lot of former Trump people now. In 8 years I don't remember a lot of former Obama people and if there were, they didn't get any press or were never referred to as former Obama.

Fewest people in recorded history watched the Oscars last night. Even after they announced it would be non political. I know why I didn't watch. LOL.

Former Goldman Sacks President Gary Cohen resigned as Trump's financial adviser. Apparently he objected to the tariff raising on steel and aluminum.

Now another former Trump advisor.

Stocks set to tank again in a see saw since the original announcement.

A global trade war apparently was one of the things that started the depression way back then.
