China is the number one exporter nation in the world. America is the number one consumer nation in the world. Roughly 70% of American's GDP is attributable to consumer spending.

You don't need a PhD in economics to understand how a protracted trade war will bring the hammer down on economic prosperity in America and the world.

This guy is a bulldozer with a wrecking ball attached
He'll leave a ring around your eye and tread marks on your back
He's an animal
He's hungry
You ain't been hungry, since "Supreme Clientele"
Remember what you first told me when I took ya in
You wanted to be a fighter (Yeah!)
You wanted to be a killer (New York Stand Up)
You wanted to be the Champ! (Got your boy in the booth nigga)
You ain't hungry
Matter of fact I don't want you in my gym
Get out of my ring, you disgust me

This is why the downward slide will continue.

The only thing of value in this country is consumption.

Yet no one is willing to lean on the market slightly to ensure a manufacturing base exists.

Well, leaning on the market wouldn't even be necessary if people weren't fighting for "living wages"

trump lives to pump the stock market.

if he could he'd unilaterally drop interest rates by 1 % just to goose the market to new all-time highs.

I love how the minions who lose money because of this will be defending him.

They aren't getting thrown under the bus; they are diving under it.
