23. I don't want one either

I just hate the thought that people would re-elect Trump solely because of the economy and damn everything else. I know that Presidents typically get the credit or the blame for the economy but I'm not sure exactly why we can't have a good economy AND a much better President. I'm not entirely sure what Trump has done for the economy other than not f**k up the good economy Obama left with worse than he has in some respects. Hopefully, the Democrats can thread the needle between not being seen as "talking down" the economy and making the case that a Democratic President would still be better for the economy, but more importantly that we deserve a better quality President than Trump- and I can't see why that would be a hard one to make by anybody still in the running.
