    I will ask you again - are you saying Trump knows better than most of Wall Street and the entire U.S. Chamber of Commerce about tariffs? Yes or no?

    Trump is doing it for protectionism...just like Smoot Hawley.

    Trump Says Tariffs Are Needed To Protect Vital Industries, But Are They?
    TPP off, Trump wants to protect American jobs - Berita Daily


    And I am still waiting for your link that shows when major economic tariffs on both medium AND major economic powers worked for the tariff originator.

    Either show it or admit that you cannot.

    Wrong of course his advisers say that Trump is a free trader and that he is using rerriffs just like the Chinese are using terriffs only in trumps case that is to promote the free trade p

    What on earth do you think all the negotiation is about??? Obviously it’s to promote free trade

    Yes, but it won't work. IT NEVER HAS.

    And Trump is also doing it for protectionism...not JUST free trade.

    please stop re-printing 1000 old debates Ask one question at a time and one post so the others can follow along without reading 1 million words do you understand this? China has Used terriffs very successfully to screw Americans so there’s your answer. See how silly your question was now?

    Wrong.
    You typed: 'Trump is a free trader and his tarrifs are designed to promote free trade. Smooth Holly was a terrrif not designed to promote free trade but to protect American industries.'

    Trump has promised to protect American jobs. That is protectionism.

    Trump Promised to Protect Steel. Layoffs Are Coming Instead.

    What Trump and Smoot-Hawley are/were doing is the SAME THING...it's called protectionism.

    'What is 'Protectionism'
    Protectionism refers to government actions and policies that restrict or restrain international trade, often with the intent of protecting local businesses and jobs from foreign competition.'

    Protectionism


    Do you understand that?

    What he says in public obviously means nothing. What on earth do you think all the negotiation is about and why do you think Leithauser and Navarro are free traders and say Trump is a free trader??

    LOL...hey pal...you are the one that answered ONE of my posts with THREE of your own (for GOD knows what reason)...you are the one who started this mess - not me.

    I will ask you for the FIFTH time...where is your link that shows when major economic tariffs on both medium AND major economic powers worked for the tariff originator.

    LOL...so now you know when Trump is lying in public? Okaaaaaay.

    Show me a link to factual proof that Trump was lying when he said he started the tariffs to protect jobs?

    BTW - I doubt millions of workers will like that he did not mean it when he said that he was doing this to protect their jobs.
