What's baffling to me about anyone trusting Trump with the economy, is that he's clearly the most economically ignorant candidate to ever run for office. If the interview where he suggested renegotiating America's debt didn't bring that point home, you just have to spend a few minutes listening to him talk about trade to understand how hopelessly clueless he is. For starters, he doesn't even appear to know what trade deficits are. In interview after interview, he talks about them as if they add to the debt just like budget deficits ( they don't ). He also seems to have this gut-based belief that trade deficits equal greater unemployment when in fact there's no correlation between employment levels and trade imbalances. Even his notion that the decline of manufacturing jobs in America is directly related to outsourcing has been thoroughly debunked ( the primary culprit is automation ). I'd honestly have more faith in the average high-schooler to manage the economy. At least there's a chance that a student might recognize that they've got something to learn whereas Trump is a man who thinks he already knows everything when he obviously knows next to nothing.
