    Yes, but Trump's incompetence is just pulling the curtain back on what has been happening for several decades. Once we decided to move away from an economy that manufactures actual items to one that outsources to the cheapest producer we headed down this path and weakened our standing in the world. Building wealth by shuffling numbers on Wall Street and selling debt to our competitors was a shell game that was bound to fail. Throwing away our strength with endless wars in the Middle East just accelerated the decline of this country. I fear that the American Century is over and we are now living in the Chinese world.
