Donald Trump took to Twitter this week to express his disappointment over the fiscal cliff deal that the Republicans made with President Obama and the Democrats. It’s not as if anyone pays much attention to Trump these days, but he does have a lot of Twitter followers, which he might consider to be a source of his ever-dwindling political power.
The fiscal cliff deal was reached barely 3 hours before midnight of December 31, 2012. Vice President Biden had convinced the democrats that going over the cliff would be devastating to the U.S. economy. Many lawmakers realized the wisdom of Biden’s statement and agreed that that they had to maintain the country’s economic growth or America would go back to recession.
