Democratic Candidate John Delaney Says Some Dems Are Cheering On a Recession

After an inversion in the yield curve last week, some analysts feared that there might be a recession coming soon. The markets, however, rebounded on Friday and the fears subsided, at least for the time being.

With an election looming in 2020, a few Conservatives, Donald Trump among them, opined that Democrats were hoping for a recession. Today, Democratic hopeful John Delaney threw in with the President, saying that he also feels some liberals want a recession to occur.

This morning, Trump tweeted, “The Fake News LameStream Media is doing everything possible the “create” a U.S. recession, even though the numbers & facts are working totally in the opposite direction. They would be willing to hurt many people, but that doesn’t matter to them. Our Economy is sooo strong, sorry!”

When asked about the possibility of a recession, Delaney told CNN reporter DJ Judd, “I hope it’s not [coming]. You know, it feels like some Democrats are cheering on a recession because they want to stick it to Trump.”

Delaney was evasive when asked to elaborate. “I’m not going to name names, you just get a sense that — like my position is very clear, which is I hope a recession doesn’t happen. … I think it’s very important that we be clear as a party that we don’t want a recession,” he said. When again press about saying some Democrats were cheering on the recession, he replied, “I didn’t say that, I didn’t say that.”
