Trade war? good ! War is the one fucking thing we are good at...this peace is kicking our ass.
More trade war less war with bullets.
No it should always be about what is the smart thing to do for the majority of Americans.
Your party jsut hates the smart thing and the smart people becuase they get in the way of your party deliving to the Wealthy people who support them what they want.

It has been almost 4 years and now you plan on buying American....
