    You’re old and fat, but not wise Tammy. Also, your predictions are crap.
    And I love how Brexit sets your hair on fire daily.
    Yay!

    So it’s ok for other countries to use tariffs, just not the US.

    Thanks for clarifying.

    So much for your "education," then, imbecile, because up until 1945, tariffs were the way of the world for us and up until then, we carried a positive trade balance and everyone did just fine. It all fell apart AFTER we gave them up, so you can take your "education" and flush it where it belongs.

    Price increases on the way for Americans. But, no problem. Trump's people are all wealthy Repubtards, and they can afford to pay more. Bigly!

    As has already been repeated many times while you slept, it is the price increases that make tariffs work. Because once buying foreign at their new higher costs raise the cost of production, manufacturers start turning to domestic product that is now cheaper. And this creates competition and the two sides then battle to undercut each other in order to regain the market. The consumer wins.

    Given the reaction of the financial markets, I would say it involved more than just his little part of the USA

    And about 200 million that think the bastard is totally worthless. The fat fuck is going to put us into another 2008, just as we got out of the last one the GOP put us into.
