@POTUS confirmed to press pool that $34B in tariffs against China will kick in tonight as planned. He adds that there is "another $16 in 2 weeks" & another "200B in abeyance" & then another "300 billion in abeyance."

While I understand the tariffs against China (still think this isn't the best way to go about it and ultimately counterproductive), it's the tariffs against our allies that I don't understand. Trade wars are just dumb and hardly ever produce a clear winner.

Trump trying to purposefully wreck the economy or what?

Relax amigo. A trade war with China may end up benefiting your family despite our own trade issues with Mexico.

yeah, only if your family is unemployed. A trade war might open up more jobs, but I guarantee the average salary in the U.S. won't go up enough to make up for the increases on pretty much EVERYTHING for consumers.

Wages are stagnant.
Health care is up.
Gas is going up.
Factories are closing or moving overseas.
Unemployment is rising bit by bit.
Market not good.
We're projected to be in a trillion dollar deficit.

But Mexicans.

Trump Towers in Beijing?
Licensing rights for Ivanka's clothing line?

I honestly don't think Trump knows wtf he's doing. He's trying to run the country like a business. Doesn't work like that. You can't just threaten a country like you can with suppliers.

He was a shady business man with mob ties that used illegal and dirty tactics. He intimidated, bullied and bribed his way throughout his business dealings. And if it weren't for mob and foreign investors he'd be in the streets.

He's making side deals to save himself. Yet his supporters don't want to see that.

He will continue to threaten our allies and trading partners until they've had enough and united to leave us behind. We'll be isolated from the world on all fronts before he leaves and that would be the collapse of the new Rome.

Impact of a trade war: Chinese retaliatory tariffs will fall especially hard in ~20% of the counties that voted for Trump, affecting eight million people. Only 3% of Clinton counties, or 1.1 million people, would be as heavily hit.

They were warned.

I feel no sympathy.

Hope their food stamps have Trump's face on them to remind them.

I sincerely doubt that, I'm involved in economic crisis proof business. In fact, an economic crisis would see a growth in our family owned business. All I'm saying is that a trade war between the Chinese and the US would affect both countries and I don't think Americans who would be affected are gonna be happy with Trump. Dude is digging his own grave

It doesn't matter to his supporters as long as he's bashing Mexicans and blacks.

The party of "family values" doesn't care if he's sending them to the unemployment line while he's making millions as long as he continues to bash Mexicans.

They won't care that they don't have health care as long as he attacks blacks.

They won't care if he defends rapists and molesters as long as he attacks women.

They won't care how shitty their world turns, he'll just say it's the 'other's' fault and they'll support him.
