Conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh was one of the few political experts who accurately predicted Donald Trump would win the 2016 election.
Millions of Americans pay attention to his political forecasts and care about what he has to say.
And Limbaugh made one scary prediction about the 2020 presidential election that has everyone talking.
Rush began his show by detailing how the stock market dropped by 800 points last week on fears a recession would hit in 2020.
Democrats and their allies in the mainstream media are using the market drop– which has slightly rebounded since then — to spread conspiracies that Trump is leading the U.S. into a recession.
Limbaugh said the dip in the market was a “dry run” for the media and Democrats to try scare voters into thinking there will be a recession next year before voters head to the polls.
So I’ll tell you what I think yesterday was. Are you ready? I think yesterday was a dry run. I think yesterday was a dry run for later on in the election season. I think they wanted to see how they could succeed, if they could succeed, in causing the bottom to fall out of Trump public opinion by claiming that Trump’s policies are destroying the United States economy.
They couldn’t stick with it for more than one day because it isn’t true, folks. There’s no truth to the fact that we’re on the verge of a recession. We’re the only nation in the world with a demonstrably growing economy. We are not on the verge of a recession here. Quite the opposite. We still have economic growth that was not seen in eight years of the Obama Administration, which is another thing that is irritating a lot of people.
So I think it was a dry run. I think it was an attempt to see how it played, an attempt to see if they could do it, an attempt to see if they could affect pretty much blanket media coverage with the drop of a dime that we are in a recession or on the verge of a recession. So they’ve set it up. They didn’t say we’re in a recession. They said we’re on the verge. It’s just around the corner. They’re using the inverted yield curve, which, of course, nobody understands. And it’s even more difficult to try to explain to somebody what it is.
The booming economy will arguably be President Trump’s strongest talking point in his bid for re-election.
Rush argued that Democrats can’t beat Trump on his record, so they are now trying to claim that the U.S. will be hit with a recession if the president wins a second term in office.
They are trying to scare voters, but liberals have revealed their next plan to defeat Trump.
