It's not my fault we're better than everyone else.

If non-aggression and property rights are nut-jobbery go ahead and get me a jar of almond butter.

WOW! Here's the truth behind that photo which was taken over a year ago.

Yes, Trump re-election banners are being made in China, but it doesn't appear his campaign is paying



Idiotic Trump haters burned again. They keep repeating lie after lie.

Well, he is the president. The things he says should not be taken lightly, as he tends to make an effort to follow through. He does have emergency powers, and he is probably looking into how he can use them to move business out of China. That would be a very radical approach, but he is no ordinary president. And the Chinese have already moved on to some radical moves, like refusing to purchase anymore agricultural product.

As things escalate, Trump may have to start resorting to more radical measures. There's really no telling what he will do, and how things will play out. This is like a great reshuffling of the deck in the USA economy. Will make the game more fun for future generations. They probably won't have any excuse to live in their parent's basement when all is said and done, and that's a very good thing.

Presidents have no authority. All their power is implied.

And Presidents sure AF have no authority to meddle in the free market.

You're correct.

He is the biggest socialist in the White House since FDR. He's even worse than Lyndon.
