Thread: Trade War!

  1. #1

    Thumbs up Trade War!

    Trade wars are good, and easy to win. Let's start one.







    I think we all know who the "certain country" is. No need to say it.
    The tools of conquest do not necessarily come with bombs and explosions and fallout. There are weapons that are simply thoughts, attitudes, prejudices to be found only in the minds of men. For the record, prejudices can kill and suspicion can destroy and a thoughtless frightened search for a scapegoat has a fallout all of its own for the children and the children yet unborn. And the pity of it is that these things cannot be confined to the Twilight Zone.

    But the public show of confidence belies the fact that Trump's policy maneuver, which may ultimately harm U.S. companies and American consumers, was announced without any internal review by government lawyers or his own staff, according to a review of an internal White House document.

    According to two officials, Trump's decision to launch a potential trade war was born out of anger at other simmering issues and the result of a broken internal process that has failed to deliver him consensus views that represent the best advice of his team.

    On Wednesday evening, the president became "unglued," in the words of one official familiar with the president's state of mind
    He's was hangry. That's why Reagan kept jelly bellies.

    Welp, it's official.

    Mr Trump has said the US is suffering from "unfair trade" and that the move would boost US industry.

    But countries have expressed outrage at his plans, and experts have warned of new trade wars.

    The tariffs will go into effect in 15 days and include exemptions for Canada and Mexico.

    Tariffs of 25% are to be placed on steel and 10% on aluminium imported into the US.

    ...
    also, his economic advisor resigned a couple days ago.

    How are people STILL surprised that President Trump is doing something he campaigned on?

    I don't get it.

    Because virtually everybody, even his own party, says it's a bad idea.
