Jessica Bursztynsky for CNBC:

Trump said Cook believes the economy will have a v-shaped recovery, where a big downturn is matched by an equally big upswing, following the outbreak.

The coronavirus has rattled markets for the majority of the year as investors grapple with its economic consequences.

MacDailyNews Take: Here’s hoping Cook is right!

    1. Absolutely. If Trump says it, it’s almost definitely not true. It’s generally self-serving. And it always benefits Putin at the detriment of US national interests.

      1. “And it always benefits Putin at the detriment of US national interests.”

        Guess you missed the findings of the two-year investigation $35 million Mueller Report that found no wrong doing and ZERO criminal charges.

        Enjoy your fairy tales…

        1. You know it’s not as simple as that and you know you are being misleading. Maybe you should pull the republican senate report recently published that SUPPORT RUSSIAN INTERFERENCE.

          I now you can be a better shill and cult member that that weak answer.

        2. Apparently, shit for brains is your best trait.

          This week, the JOINT Senate approved a resoution on russian interference on behalf of the beefsteak cowboy..

          Stormy says his dick looks like a mushroom. I used to like mushrooms.

          1. The Senate resolution and the Mueller investigation are two completely different acts.

            One took two years with ZERO criminal referrals and the other took weeks of cooperation.

            Not “apparently,” specifically you know all about “shit for brains”… 💩

            1. And yet Mueller found 10 instances of Obstruction Of Justice which is a prosecutable crime but charges were not filed because “shit for brains” is masquerading as president.

              Wait until sit for brains no longer has immunity.

              You know this snot gob and and yet you pretend like that isn’t a fact.

              We are not the poorly educated trump base fooled by your lies and misinformation..

  1. If Tim really believes this, he will make horrible mistakes with the stock buybacks and cash neutral policy.

    It won’t be V shaped, this will be the Greatest Depression.

    1. What is sad is…clearly, you and your hard left are HOPING for a depression. You’ve let your hatred of one man turn into a hope for our mutual destruction. Incredible.

      1. Can anyone here thing of a more stupid thing to say? Do you REALLY believe that ANYONE, no matter what your political stripe, thinks that way. That people want to see lives ending, families torn apart, our social lives changing irrevocably, mental depression cause by mass unemloyment, family business destroyed forever, more deaths amongst the world’s heroes who are actually on the front line (unlike you hiding in your mom’s basement)…every day????
        Yes most Democrats and a pretty high number of Republicans do not like Trump. The world actually hates Trump because the USA is going to drag the world down during the pandemic since the US wants to go its own way and not coordinate with other world leaders.
        Shut down immigration??? Really??? You guys already have the stupid virus and besides having the most cases in the world makes other countries not wanting infected Americans to come to their countries.
        Fix the testing issue? Oh no. Let the people drink Chlorox, wise wisdom coming from Dr. Trump (got his degree from the prestigious Trump University I hear).

        In times like these, sometimes our humanity is the only thing we can hold on to, that we MUST hold on to. Comments like yours show that even that is fragile.

  2. Undue optimism makes for mistakes. Trump’s past is littered with optimism actions triggering bankruptcies. Better to get the reopening and recovery right than rush to return to normalcy. If a strong second virus wave were to occur during a “return to normal” period, the economic implications of such would be profoundly bad.

    1. So, you agree with President Trump (even if CNN/MSDNC won’ allow you to realize it.)

      To keep America gaining momentum, every citizen needs to maintain the vigilance. And we all understand that very well; we’ve gone over it many, many times. This includes practicing good hygiene, maintaining social distance, and the voluntary use of face covering.

      A safe and phased reopening of our economy — it’s very exciting, but it does not mean that we are letting down our guard at all, in any way. On the contrary, continued diligence is an essential part of our strategy to get our country back to work, to take our country back. We’re winning this, and we’re going to win it, and we’re going to keep watching. We’re going to watch very closely for the invisible enemy.

      — President Trump, April 23, 2020

      1. That’s the expressed policy, and there’s nothing wrong with it. The problem is that the President wants to shortcut his own policy by abandoning its commitment to sound public health practices and seeking some miracle that will provide gain with no pain. Worse, he is encouraging his supporters to ”liberate” themselves from his own policy by abandoning social distancing without a sound alternative.

        1. “That’s the expressed policy, and there’s nothing wrong with it.”

          10 words that expose EXACTLY who you are. I cannot find anything wrong SPEAKS VOLUMES. Thank you for an honest admission and I read and noted, your lack of support for the policy. BTW, the president does not need your approval, now or ever.

          “The problem is that the President wants to shortcut his own policy…”

          No. The problem is that TXUser comes here daily to nitpick and promote an anti-Trump Democrat agenda using propaganda, extrapolation, inference, opinion, cherry picked half-truths — to “shortcut” President Trump. This is simply another 53-word doom and gloom example.

          Not ONCE have I read USER posted praise for the president FOR ANYTHING since he was sworn in. His hatred is off the charts like Pelosi, CNN and the rest of the Democrat ilk — clearly runs deep in all he writes.

          The entire point of the article and what USER will not articulate, much less SUPPORT, is absolutely refreshing Cook and Trump, from opposite ends of politic spectrum — may not always agree, but a great example for the world working together…

      2. Fwhatever, you love to cherry-pick the occasionally comments from Trump that make sense. You neglect to note that he was finally forced to speak some sense after months of speaking nonsense and making up things only to deny he said those things the next day.

        You have been a Trump-lover from Day 1, and you have never failed to support the far right propaganda. You are irrelevant.

        1. KingME you have been a President Trump hater from Day One. To each his own.

          The presidents handling of the economy before virus and his teams handling of the virus is far more relevant than dumb words at times.

          Sniping potshots from a HATER is TRULY IRRELEVANT…

      3. Jesus, donbt you get chapped lips sucking trump’s cock all the time.

        You’ve been proven wrong on everything you’ve ever saids on this forum..Your great capitalism is now in the worst recession since 1929 and not any help from the guy who you let fuck you in the ass.

        Self-infect and die asshole.

        1. “Jesus, donbt you get chapped lips sucking trump’s cock all the time.”

          Jesus, where is your proof Mr. Woolly POTTY Mouth? Answer: Hatred needs NONE.

          “You’ve been proven wrong on everything you’ve ever saids on this forum.”

          Saids? Always, using absolute terms (everything) is the clearest sign of STUPIDITY.

          “Your great capitalism is now in the worst recession since 1929”

          So, in your demented mind if you have one, the president had everything to do with a crashing economy, and nothing do with a record breaking economy in his first three years in office as an inexperienced politician. Which begs the question, have you ever heard of the Covid-19 virus? Never mind in your case it’s HOPELESS because fair and balanced is not in your wheelhouse.

          “not any help from the guy who you let fuck you in the ass.
          Self-infect and die asshole.”

          CASE CLOSED. Woolly POTTY Mouth, indeed…

          1. You are still nothing but a shill for and serve no purpose but to fellate trump. Too bad buttwipe isn’t here so that you would have someone to parrot.

  3. V shaped recovery for stock market… ahem… followed by another gap down by years end…

    Wall St vs Main St is way different…. Stock Market will eventually be affected… when companies report the cost of doing business to minimize the spread of the current virus going forward… and other viruses in the future…

    for now… unemployment => missed rent for months => landlord can’t pay the bank and borrows at a high interest rate => Bank and their friends win… the rest… “hope you were in a situation to set aside an emergency fund” for the recession that was going to happen anyway…

    Could Tim Apple be referencing, Apple, the company will have a V shaped recover (not necessarily the stock)… they will recover without any problems… they do not need a ‘good’ quarter to report for years… they have enough cash to run countries…. they are probably in a position to buy out more companies… and if they stop with stock buy backs and justify cutting dividends… they’ll only strengthen their position.

    Anyway, hope everyone is keeping safe out there! Shout out to the EMTs, MDs, RNs, Respiratory Therapists, and housekeepers of the hospital dealing with COVID-19.

  4. That’s right KingMel. NO WRONG DOING!

    You throw out opinions like facts with NO sources or links. Typical party/media biased irresponsible SPIN.

    I get you and your ilk DESPISE and HATE Trump at every second of everyday with every fiber in your body. That is your right.

    But you cross the line when you FALSELY ACCUSE someone on a specious media extrapolation without verifiable proof. The worst example of guilt by association ever leveled at a president in HISTORY.

    I repeat: The worst example of guilt by association ever leveled at a president in HISTORY.

    I had no problem with President Obama, yes I use the President label out of respect for the office regardless of whether or not I support the person in it. Believe me, IMHO he was the worst president in my lifetime.

    As I was saying, Obama was caught on a hot mic right before a presidential election telling Putin he could do more for him after the election.

    I don’t recall you and your ilk, the Democrat Party or the media howling hysterically and incessantly for years calling out Russian Collusion and spending $35 million to get to the bottom of the obvious.

    The lesson here is both sides play the same game, but JUSTICE must prevail. No double standard and no hypocrisy, PERIOD!

    President Trump has withstood a negative relentless media onslaught 24/7 for over three years and STANDS TALL. That alone is the quality we want in a fierce fearless leader to lead our country. Also, his record turnaround of a record economy in less than two years for a first time politician will go down in history.

    President Trump 2020!!! … 🇺🇸😷🦅

    1. Stupid is as stupid does….
      In case you haven’t noticed, Biden is kicking Trumps ass everywhere. The only group left that will vote for Trump are all the people at Cholorox or Lysol to thank Trump has he helps them to save their business….I hear its booming!

      I remained convinced that GoeB and F2T2, when they are not inappropraitely touching each other in one of their mom’s basement, generate their nonsense to get a rise out of us. NO ONE can be that ignorant unless that have mental health issues.

      1. “In case you haven’t noticed, Biden is kicking Trumps ass everywhere.”

        So your source is the latest biased media POLLS that had Hillary wining from 80-90% margin right up until Election Day when CNN eat crow for the world to see. This far out, good luck with that…AGAIN. 🤣

        “I remained convinced that GoeB and F2T2, when they are not inappropraitely touching each other in one of their mom’s basement.”

        Well Buster, obvious you will believe ANYTHING, but sad to read you have been TERMINALLY INFECTED by the twin potty mouth clowns Wolly Mouth and Mental Midget XXX Mouth from San Diego.

        “NO ONE can be that ignorant unless that have mental health issues.”

        You should know…🤣🤣🤣
