From CNBC here:
Decades ago, when Ronald Reagan was elected president, the intellectual consensus was that high inflation, high unemployment, and American decline could not be changed. The idea was that the country was ungovernable.
But Reagan put an end to that. He did it with a clear set of easy-to-understand policies to fix the economy and restore American leadership abroad. And he guided that plan into place with his quintessential optimism.
Trump and Reagan are very different people. And Trump’s governing style will be nothing like Reagan’s. But the underlying principle of optimism is the same.
I just got the taste of vomit in my mouth
