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.

(1)

More jobs were created annually during Obama than during Trump.

(2)

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.
