The media clearly thinks an economic recession would bring down Trump.
We know this because they are talking about it constantly, almost as if they are trying to bring it into reality by mentioning it.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
No One Wants a Recession (Wink)
Media fixation on a possible recession hit a fever pitch over the last week, with “recession fears” dominating news coverage following a volatile few days on Wall Street.
While the likelihood of one hitting before next year’s election still appears unlikely, that didn’t prevent plenty of obvious conventional wisdom being peddled: If the economy hits a major downturn before next year’s election, President Donald Trump is probably finished.
Trump claimed media members are hoping for a recession to occur to damage his re-election hopes, leading to plenty of defensive posturing in the pundit and journalist class.
“No one wants to see a recession,” said former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm (D.).
“I do not want there to be a recession,” said ex-White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci.
“We are due—not celebrating it—but due for a recession,” said MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle.
“I just don’t think we should be rooting for a Constitution, because that’s not good for America,” said former Obama State Department official Richard Stengel.

Even one of the Democrats running in 2020 has admitted that the left wants this to happen.
The Hill reports:
Delaney: ‘It feels like some Democrats are cheering on a recession’
Democratic presidential candidate John Delaney said some members of his party seem to be “cheering on a recession” in hopes of weakening President Trump.
“It feels like some Democrats are cheering on a recession because they want to stick it to Trump,” the former Maryland congressman told reporters Wednesday. “I don’t want a recession because I don’t want these workers in here to face a recession.”
“But I worry that Trump’s policies are bringing one on,” he added.

Democrats would rather see America fail than see Trump succeed.
