Brutal map shows why U.S. farmers want Trump to 'end the trade war'

When will these farmers wake up and realize Donny and his enablers must go. Huge economic pain caused by his tariffs, and inability to get workers due to his immigration policies. Not to mention his amorality.

Trump Claims U.S. Businesses Have Barely Noticed His Trade War
That’s probably news to companies where layoffs are piling up.

More “alternative facts”. F’ing douche.

Investors are starting to worry about the economy

As predicted here many times. MAGA this, Whell!

https://money.cnn.com/2018/09/18/inv...ina/index.html

Quote:
Yet beneath the surface, some are getting worried about the ability of the global economy to withstand the trade war and brewing storms in emerging markets.

One in four professional investors is bracing for global growth to slow over the next year, according to a Bank of America Merrill Lynch survey published on Tuesday. That's the worst outlook in this monthly survey since December 2011 and up from August when just 7% of investors were pessimists.

And nearly half of investors surveyed by Bank of America believe the US economy will decelerate and rejoin the rest of the world.

Just one in three said that in August.

"Investors are holding on to more cash, telling us they are bearish growth," Michael Hartnett, chief investment strategist at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, wrote to clients.

Not surprisingly, the trade war topped the worry list for the fourth straight month. The second-most popular "tail risk" is related: a slowdown in China's economy.

Alibaba's Jack Ma backs down from promise to Trump to bring 1 million jobs to the US

“The promise was made on the premise of friendly US-China partnership and rational trade relations," Ma told Chinese news site Xinhua on Wednesday. "That premise no longer exists today, so our promise cannot be fulfilled."

Wonder what our resident Trumpkins’ response to this would be, were they not in deep hiding?

Trump's approach to trade is 'like a little kid that found this water gun'

Pretty much covers it.

Two-thirds of business economists in the U.S. expect a recession to begin by the end of 2020, while a plurality of respondents say trade policy is the greatest risk to the expansion, according to a new survey.

Trump's big strategy on trade: Rebranding


Trumpkins will, of course, see it as a huge “win”, validating their Dear Leader’s deal making “prowess”. That’s laughable.

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/trump...195558487.html

Quote:
The end result of all this maneuvering is a new trade deal that’s slightly different from the one it will supersede, with the jury still out on whether it’s a net improvement. “The USMCA is certainly better than nothing,” writes Douglas Holtz-Eakin, president of the center-right American Action Forum, and former director of the Congressional Budget Office. “It may be better than NAFTA itself, but probably not. And it is certainly not as beneficial as, say, passing the original Trans Pacific Partnership.”

Don't know why he didn't think of having a big win abolishing ObamaCare by just renaming the Affordable Care Act. Could have called it "TrumpCare?"

Trump's tariffs have already cost Ford $1B; now it's planning layoffs
Ironically, Ford may have to cut production of some models, potentially reducing U.S. jobs, as a result of China's tit-for-tat tariffs.

https://www.nbcnews.com/business/aut...now-it-n917756

Up to 24,000 good jobs going away. Thanks, Donny! MAGA!
