Don't believe a word coming from Trump's mouth.
CONSUMERS AND PRODUCERS PAY THE COST OF TARIFFS!
Trump's entire approach to negotiating with the China is poorly thought out. Instead of focusing on one issue at a time like Intellectual Property Rights, Trump is escalating it to a no win situation for the U S. This COST of everything from autos/trucks to consumer goods will increase in cost.
Farm aide due to tariffs in now approaching 20 Billion with no end in site.
Soy bean farmers may lose the Chinese market forever in Russia is successful in meeting futures contracts with China on soy bean deliveries. Same with pork if other countries are capable of meeting China's demand.
Trump has ridden the successes put into motion by his predecessor in regards to the economy. Trump's EOs lifting clean air and water regs have only allowed for some industries to pollute. Like allowing coal companies to now dump waste into rivers. They haven't contributed to the economy. The overhaul of our tax code isn't producing the revenue we were told it would. If anything, companies are using the financial windfall to buy back their own stock. All the while escalating the Nat'l Debt by well over a TRILLION a year.
Like everything else Trump has touched has turned into a disaster, so will our economy!
He is a failed businessman with multiple bankruptcies. His father kept him afloat until he got his TV show. That allowed him to build his brand which is his name. That allowed him to use his name in becoming a franchise hotel operation. Now, that name has become a liability for his franchisees. And, we know that much of his financial success over the last 20 years has to do with highly questionable business practices with dirty Russian and Saudi money.
The guy is a phony, a con artist and a pathological liar that is destroying our economy, our Constitution, our leadership and our credibility around the world!
