Steve Rattner: The Economy Is Getting Weaker; We Could Have a Recession Very Easily

‘The economy is getting very weaker as we sit here today’

EXCERPT:

SCARBOROUGH: “I mean, the question is, could Trump have a 6 1/2, 7-year record of economic growth? Well, we’ll never find out, but I doubt it."
RATTNER: "It’s worse than that, because Trump is actually on the verge of taking the ball and throwing it into the grand stand. The economy is getting very weaker as we sit here today. You see manufacturing starting to go down. You see things weakening all over the economy and it’s directly really attributable to the trade war and to all of his other economic policies that are really — we could have a recession very easily in the next few years."
