Tax cuts are just the most expensive form of stimulus with most of the money going into the saving accounts of the ultra wealthy

An infrastructure bill would be the best case scenario but again I don't see Repubs sending Trump a bill like without hand outs to wealthy

These tax breaks already exist. I know especially in NY state. They keep boasting about how they are bringing jobs to NY but all they are doing is offering businesses the opportunity to not pay taxes for decades at a time and of course the tax burden ends up falling on the people that work for said business and everyone else. It's the main reason that certain school art and music programs are shutting down or the entire school is closing all together.
They are planning to build a Legoland near by and it will bring a nice influx of jobs but the downside is that they are going to be able to go 30 years without paying any state/local taxes. The same taxes that go towards helping schools in the area and the municipality's budget.

Donald Trump's pick for senior director of strategic communications for the National Security Council once suggested Russian President Vladimir Putin should hack former Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton's emails.

In June, Monica Crowley tweeted a Daily Caller article that reported that the State Department wouldn't release Clinton's emails for 27 months.
She wrote in her tweet, "I guess Putin is going to have to do it."

On Tuesday night, Ta-Nehisi Coates made a guest appearance with Trevor Noah on “The Daily Show” to discuss “My President Was Black” — his brilliant reflection on the Obama presidency. On Wednesday, The Daily Show posted a memed quote from Coates that has been liked over 230,000 times.

It says this:

If I have to jump six feet to get the same thing that you have to jump two feet for — that’s how racism works.

To be President, Obama had to be scholarly, intelligent, President of the Harvard Law Review, the product of some of our greatest educational institutions, capable of talking to two different worlds.
Quote:
Donald Trump will be the first President of the United States in 25 years to not have a graduate degree of any kind. Bill Clinton was a Rhodes Scholar and had a law degree from Yale University. Even George W. Bush had a Harvard MBA. Trump has B.S. in economics from University of Pennsylvania, but no advanced education.

Trump calls it "Street smarts" vs "Book smarts". Seriously. He used this phrase on The Apprentice. I think that tells you a lot about him.

The population of the United States is more diverse than ever, yet with each new Cabinet appointment announced by President-elect Donald Trump, his proposed administration looks poised to become one of the whitest White Houses in recent history.

With his core team in place ó Vice President Mike Pence, chief of staff Reince Priebus, national security adviser Mike Flynn and chief strategist Steve Bannon ó Trump is already guaranteed to enter the Oval Office surrounded by white men.

The rest of Trumpís Cabinet appointments must first be confirmed by the Senate. But of the 18 people heís already picked for the top roles requiring Senate approval, 14 are white and of those, 12 are also male.
He has his one token so I guess it's okay.
