Trump wrecks companies.

Why wouldn't he do the same to the US.

What's different?

Certainly not him.

Rashness can lead to advantage in the short term but will ultimately lead to catastrophe in the long term.

I tried to tell you dummies and you mocked me.

Can't wait for my told you so moment.

Haha!

China can wait out the election to see what they need to do (I mean the guy is president for life).

Trump re-elected and they'll be wishing they had a do-over.

Either way, I'm sure the american taxpayer gets the brunt of it.

China is in a position of power here. I’d be surprised if they blink first.

China isn't the only source of low cost labor these days. They need to be mindful of what happens if/when US companies find alternate vendors elsewhere. Once they lose that market share it's gone for good.

Not to mention, they're rapidly running out of young people to fill all these factory jobs.

On a related note, I just got a smoking deal on a Swedish bike helmet that was hecho'd en Chine!

The farmers who backed Trump are getting screwed, gee who could have seen this coming? Trump screws everyone who trusts him, always has, always will.

Some people insist on a fight. They're deranged, but okay, we'll go back farther..... Does this chart curve upward or downward?

However, it's ALWAYS been my contention that the House of Representatives has more influence over the economy because they hold the purse strings. The House's effect is delayed about a year as the House prepares budgets ahead of time. The exception is when presidents stifle the economy with regulations and mandates .....like Obama did.

Somebody had to start correcting this. We will cease to exist if it continues.

Dipshit Dotard Donny finally realized that tariffs are paid by the American consumer, progress I guess.
