    Trump is mainly concerned with the United States. But everything you are doing here is Global. Why is that? The United States is doing better than ever. Is this a liberal manipulation of the facts against trump? I don't believe you guys for minute. This is something writting like by the EU. Fake news!

    2:41 No manufacturing output was not "sliding"!!!!!! It was above 50…so it was growing but at a decreasing rate.
    That's like saying a change in inflation from 3 to 2 percent indicates a fall in prices.

    but why would Purchasing Managers be inclined to give this information out? wouldn't it be confidential and couldn't they just lie to make their company look strong in the market? what's the incentive there….
