In a tweet that has since gone viral, Minnesota Governor Tim Walz accused President Donald Trump of ruining the economy. The tweet, which reads "@GovTimWalz @POTUS POTUS ruined the economy..." has been retweeted over 40,000 times and liked by over 100,000 people. The accusation comes at a time when the US economy is facing an unprecedented crisis due to the coronavirus pandemic. Millions of Americans have lost their jobs as businesses across the country are forced to close their doors in order to comply with social distancing guidelines. The stock market has also taken a nosedive as investors worry about the future of the US economy. In response to Governor Walz's tweet, many have come out in support of his accusation that President Trump is responsible for ruining the economy. Critics point to his tax cuts for corporations and wealthy individuals as well as his rollback of environmental regulations and trade policies as contributing factors to America's current economic woes. Others argue that it is unfair to blame President Trump for all of America's economic problems given that he inherited an already struggling economy from former president Barack Obama. They point out that while some of Trump's policies may have exacerbated existing issues, they are not solely responsible for creating them in the first place. It remains unclear how much responsibility President Trump bears for America's current economic situation but one thing is certain: this issue will be debated long after he leaves office.
