Trump is bringing us back to the 19th century.

Quote:
"John, let me tell you why they didn't bring me any tariffs," he said. "I know there are some people in the room right now that are upset. I know there are some globalists in the room right now. And they don't want them, John, they don't want the tariffs. But I'm telling you, I want tariffs."

Nothing says 'America first' like mercantilism, I guess.

Trump has a point.

But Congress won't cooperate.

I don't trust anyone in the Trump admin actually knows what they're doing with China. That's what we get when our Mcdonalds and Kardashian society elects a reality TV star as president

Put all the tariffs you like but ultimately if the price of doing business with America is too high people will go elsewhere to buy and sell their wares.

You mean back when the US didin't have trade deficits and national debt? When we exported way more than we imported? When we had so many manufacturing jobs that needed to be filled that we welcomed immigrants in droves?

You mean back before the government took money out of our paychecks?

Those horrible times.

Idiotic.
