Trump’s Trade War with China – Pure Stupidity?
Trump wanted to show us that he is a tough guy by starting a trade war with China because ”trade wars are easy to win”.
Well, nothing was gained.
More jobs were created annually during Obama than during Trump.
The deficit with China widened $1.9 billion to $27.9 billion as exports went up to $10.0 billion and imports increased $2.7 billion to $37.9 billion.
American farmers saw record high bankruptcies during Trump’s trade war (because China retaliated with tariffs against Trump’s tariffs).
We told you this guy was a dope right from the beginning.
He may seem patriotic to you but his ‘patriotism’ has achieved nothing for America. Patriotism alone is not enough – we want good numbers. So much for MAGA.

It backfired, like a lot of Trump's ideas. We taxpayers had to shell out government money for farm subsidies. What a colossal waste when everything was fine prior to Trump getting involved!

Leftists like you love corporatism and America being exploited. That's the opposite of economic nationalism, after all.
