For once, even Lisa recognizes the risks!
Yeah, that ought to smash the run we’ve had from Obama’s plans. Then the big Dummy will blame it on everybody and anybody but Itself.
Welp, there goes all that money we saved on taxes, when the cost of everything made of metal goes up twenty percent. Who knew that the GOP was so bad at economics?
Interesting that the REPUBLICAN Governor of California chose to use CHINESE STEEL in the New Oakland Bay Bridge, rather then American Steel, right Ahhnold???
“Trade wars are good” says our president. Ah, the confidence of a con man.
Sadly, we sent all the skills along with the jobs to other countries. We no longer have the skilled labor force that China does.
Trump shows that his economic skills are every bit the equal of his patriotism.
So, when Trump blows up the conceit that he has any actual BUSINESS or ECONOMICS knowledge, as opposed to just scamming, blustering and lawyering his way through his business — and his life — what will be left him?
Now, how are you going to blame Democrats…
On the bright side*. Trump’s short lived snark at the NRA jump started a gun buying spree meant to salvage the slump in gun sales precipitated by Trump’s election. Gun companies are going out of business or into bankruptcy due to saturated ownership of lethal weapons. How many AR-15s can a gun nutters own?
Out of frame is Trump with a blowtorch burning through the cable.
CHEV.JAMES, products made in the US that require aluminum and steel will increase in price – the tariffs are raw materials. The tariffs on solar panels that Trump already proposed hurt US businesses that install the panels.
US gets only 3% of steel from China. Top three sources are Canada, Brazil and South Korea.
China can retaliate by putting tariffs on US soybeans. Considering that 80% of the soybeans are GMO that other countries may not accept, that can really hurt US soybean farmers.
Trade war?Wake up we have been in a trade war for decades just not firing back and the USS. Trade is shot to hell. We can learn to fight this type of war or die as a world power.
Or is that the plan from the start?
Basing what we plan our trade because of what happed almost 100 years ago is just not foolish but stupid
