The Buck Does Not Stop Here

Popularized by POTUS Harry Truman, it was adopted by just about every president since then. The slogan is based on the metaphorical expression passing the buck, derived from poker gameplay, that came to mean "passing the blame", or absolving oneself of responsibility or concern by denying authority or jurisdiction over a given matter.

'The buck stops here' is a promise that responsibility will not be passed on to anyone else. Real President Harry S. Truman had a sign on his desk with 'The buck stops here' inscribed on it. This was meant to indicate that he didn't 'pass the buck' to anyone else.

Today we have an individual who will say and do anything within his power to pass placing blame to anyone else he can as long as it is not him.

Who has blamed The Federal Reserve, the news media and everyone and everything he possibly can on the problems he alone created? As the American economy turns south, Trump will be defeated, and he may be starting to realize what it really means.

POTUS slammed his preferred TV network over recent unfavorable poll results, “There’s something going on at Fox [News], I’ll tell you right now. And I'm not happy with it”

He started a trade war with China, leaving investors worried about the end of the longest economic growth in American history.
Fears of a recession in the #USA could expect the Federal Reserve to say there may be additional interest rate cuts.
