Did you ever see CNN make a piece about how Obama is not a pro-business president? And yet under trump the economy is booming, the stock market is soaring he just signed into law corporate tax cuts that has made businesses give pay raises and hire more people and CNN has the audacity to say he is not pro business. What a joke

How could anyone watch this and see news? How could someone watch this and not see that this is an intentional attempt to set a specific tone on the barely covered details of this story?

1. do you retards look at q4 earnings, which are through the roof thanks to the tax reforms? 2. do you get that military strikes have nothing to do with long term economic growth? 3. do you understand what a market correction is???

Fact is business is booming can't say the same about when Obama was president.

So, CNN has downgraded to an even lower bracket of journalistic outlets, now they are openly projecting misinterpretations, toxic demagogy, and outright lies.

I didn't know CNN was still in business. Globalist communist views are not that interesting to anybody with half a brain. I wonder when CNN is going to come out with a book called "Why do we LIE so much". CNN is basically unwatchable because of their lies and propaganda.

Greetings, Humans. You hear that? It's the sound of 7.5 billion Humans walking around on Earth. Sometimes in life, you realize not only are you not alone, but you live on a overcrowded, shitty planet. What is one to do? Well, as soon as possible, it would best for me to get off this planet. I'm sure there are other planets for me to go to. Hopefully, a planet with little to no Humans. That sounds like a paradise. Maybe I'll just find a way to create my own planet. The possibilities are endless, when you have willpower and determination. TERRANCE OUT

Oh, and on his family. Michele was right about school nutrition, I just think she was wrong about where the issue was. The meals themselves aren't any more nutritious than the chips and soda in the vending machines she wanted removed.

I vouched for Obama a lot in high school. I am not a partisan hack. I thought Trump better represented me by a hair, although I was a Fiorina guy in the early election cycle. Please stop looking at us versus them, we are all people. Plus, every sitting president has lied to the country about this or that, it all comes down to which ones you believe and disbelieve. Your attitude, and the way you look at things is why the nation is so divided. At least give people the benefit of the doubt at first. I said one thing, and it had nothing to do with being liberal/conservative, only civility, and you immediately jump at me like I'm an asshole. Don't be a douche, and you will get respect, act like a dick, and you won't.

SPL Why? Well, you're here at CNN, aren't you? You can answer your own question.
SPL (9 months ago)
Dumb comment! Why would I watch stupid Fox news or any other corporate news outlet? Every single one of them is in the business of telling you wart you want to hear. Quit your fake news addiction and you will love yourself for it.
KB The Rapper (9 months ago)
SPL Fox News is listed by the FCC as entertainment, not news. https://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2017/04/01/fox-news-for-entertainment-purposes-only-disclaimer_n_15727044.html I'll stay with CNN. You go to your source of "fair and balanced" entertainment and we'll both be happy.

Oh no, Trump is trying to bully monopolies? Tell me more, CNN, about how impeding monopolies is anti-business! It's so anti-business, that all those small businesses that would benefit are getting angry at him. This is laughable. Become a real news agency, or die.

Matthieu Pageau Definitely not because their money is the only thing keeping their heart beating. It couldn't be that!

Trump is NOT pro business. Corporate business rate if 20%? He's a bully when it comes to business and bankrupted his own companies. Farmers as Collateral damage? He lied to the Farm Bureau. He's putting the WTO and the TPP against each other.
Dillon (9 months ago)
Wendy Alexander TYT, good reporting? HHAHAHA! Thanks, I need that laugh! But in all seriousness, all of the big crops suck, and so do a lot of independents. Everything is on video or saved online nowadays, better off doing your own research, truthfully.
Wendy Alexander (9 months ago)
SmashBrosBrawl sorry, TYT isnt. They do have good reporting and calls out FOX when needed. Sorry, keep Trump if you want, I don't.

Matthew Jackman look at my subscriptions, Mr. Jackson. You're so wrong. I like PbS too among others. As for being a big girl I hate Fox except for two journalists. Ever heard of TYT? How about Secular nation? Washington Post? MSNBC? Bloomberg? Those are among my subscriptions.

Trump has had over 500 businesses. This puts him in the upper echelon regarding bankruptcy rates you fool.

I see a different number every time somebody mentions his bankruptcies. You all need to learn to count first before mouthing off about finances.

Cuz Trump isn't actually a good business man. He's been bankrupt 6 times and US banks would no longer finance him so he turned to Deutsche Bank. Trump is best at losing other people's money.

You and I both know that the Republican party is very soon going to distance themselves from this perverted man who has been a loser in everything he's ever tried: marriage, family, education, citizenship, politics, fidelity and truthfulness and integrity. The Republicans are as sick of him as the 60% of America who is also sick of him.
