Since the Great Depression, we have experienced several recessions. They were appointed (fairly or not) in honor of the president who was stationed at the time they hit. We had two Eisenhower recession, a TERRIBLE Nixon recession, a Reagan recession, a GHW Bush recession (that's the economy, stupid) and a GW Bush recession. Notice a reason? All the presidents of the REPUBLIC. EVERY Republican President for 90 years!
In fact, these days, we only have one Democratic president after a Republican president threw the economy into the ditch. Some economists believe that Trump's recession may occur during his first term. Excuse me, I mean during his SINGLE term.
