Do you know this to be true? Have you thought critically about this? Or are you merely regurgitating talking points they sound right because you would be furious oh they were actually true?

I don't know enough about tarriffs to comment specifically, but I prefer a world where we still have allies.

Fair trade is not too much to ask.


This is so unbelievably laughable.

The fact that “conservatives” are embracing trade wars because ‘Trump’s tough Obama weak’ is just absurd.

Is that what you actually think is happening here? Or is that what you want to believe because it will make the libs mad?

But don’t even go so far as to say “I don’t know enough about ____.”

This notion that we were “paying the bill” for “unbalanced trade” blah blah blah is a far-fetched tale that was made up for a talking point.

Saying “well I don’t know about _____” in this case is like the same thing as me saying I have an invisible pet dragon and you responding “well I don’t know much about invisibility, but I know dragons aren’t real.”

But hey, he sure is looking out for those working-class, rural folks, right, Republicans?

Bleh

hi Dave C

I think Bernie talked about tariffs.

It seems to me that every sector, and individuals that use products, buys new machinery etc that has steel, and aluminum will suffer over time. Only steel & aluminum groups that get raw materials from here in The States (if that is still possible, idk) will do well. (Maybe?)

between this and the reports of him just planning to wing it at the north korea summit i'm starting to think that he's stopped even pretending to give a shit about foreign relations.

Trump only cares about the optics.

They’ll meet. They’ll sign some peace treaty, he will drop some sanctions for the “promise” of NK giving up their nukes.

Basically NK has already won

Then the way i see it is Bolton will push for trump to go to war since NK broke their word

Trump wants to use a nuke and bad.

I don’t get the purpose of predicting Trump’s North Korea project. Give the man an ounce of credit - it takes a lunatic to know a lunatic. He’s done a good job in that sphere so far. Probably the only good thing he’s done.
