He then resorted to attacking Raddatz for “standing up for Mr. Trump’s version of the economy,” a version which more than two-thirds of Americans seem to like.
Steyer is pathetic. He says you are wrong if you think your life is better since Trump became President. How arrogant is that? https://t.co/yIA8m80Mwj

But Steyer apparently believes firmly that Democrats need to try to take President Trump down on the economy in order to win.
That’s a strategy got him a sixth-place finish in this past week’s New Hampshire primary.
