So much for having the “best” stock market returns.

It's not just a few "liberal economists" who are concerned. Only f***ing moron would post such a thing:

U.S. CEO Confidence Drops as Leaders Cite Trump's Trade Wars
U.S. chief executives including JPMorgan Chase & Co.’s Jamie Dimon criticized President Donald Trump’s trade wars Wednesday after releasing a Business Roundtable survey showing their confidence in the economy continues to erode.

The lobbying group for large companies said its CEO Economic Outlook cooled in the second quarter for a fifth straight time and fell to the lowest level since Trump took office -- though it still remains elevated.
The Economic Outlook index fell 5.7 points to 89.5, the lowest since the fourth quarter of 2016, but the results remain above the gauge’s historical average of 82.6 and well above the 50-point threshold signaling expansion.
Other Highlights
  • Sales expectations also fell to the lowest of Trump’s presidency, the survey showed.
  • Plans for capital investment and hiring both dropped to the weakest levels since 2017.
  • CEOs projected a 2.6% expansion in the U.S. economy this year, up from a 2.5% estimate in the first quarter.
  • The overall measure of CEO confidence has eased each quarter since reaching a record high in the first quarter of 2018.
What happened after the first quarter of 2018? What changed that would affect CEO outlook for the next 5 quarters?

Y'all don't know? Y'all can't figure it out? That won't come as a shock or surprise to anyone.
