Donny’s tariffs are hurting the stores where the poorest Americans shop

Many of whom were ignorant enough to vote for him, sadly.

Tariff Man Has Become Deficit Man
Trump really has no idea how international trade works.

Yet morons like Whell still think they're "winning", lol. Such an idiot.

Expert: 'We are worse off as a world' amid Trump's trade war

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/trade...154052679.html

Quote:
Wes Peterson, a professor of agricultural economics at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, emphasized the global impact of the trade war.

“Trump says that trade wars are easy to win,” Peterson told Yahoo Finance. “What does it mean to ‘win’ a trade war? Basically, you’ve done damage to part of your economy.”

He continued: “If you start with a world where trade is flowing normally and you start putting tariffs on, you’ve introduced a bunch of inefficiencies and distortions into global markets that will reduce the level of world output. We are worse off as a world.”
Of course, Donny has his own “experts”, all of them, sadly, as ignorant as Whell.

U.S. GDP WILL LOSE $290 BILLION DUE TO TARIFFS

https://www.aem.org/news/report-u-s-...ue-to-tariffs/

Maybe a Trump Tax on all the moron Trumpkin voters would compensate the rest of us.

Whell, you were stupid enough to vote for this pig, how about manning up and finally admitted he’s an incompetent buffoon?

TRUMP’S FORMER ECONOMIC ADVISER SLAMS ADMINISTRATION OVER TRADE WAR, SAYS TARIFFS ‘HURT THE ECONOMY’

https://www.newsweek.com/trump-econo...conomy-1363598

Quote:
”Tariffs don’t work. If anything, they hurt the economy, because if you’re a typical American worker, you have a finite amount of income to spend,” Cohn, a former Goldman Sachs executive who served as Trump’s first director of the National Economic Council, told Freakonomics radio in an interview broadcast Wednesday, CNBC reported. “If you have to spend more on the necessity products that you need to live, you have less to spend on the services that you want to buy.”

Stephen J. Dubner, who interviewed the former Trump adviser, pointed out that the majority of economists agreed with Cohn’s point, except for Peter Navarro, who serves as the president’s director of the National Trade Council. Cohn concurred, saying, “There’s only one in the world” who disagrees, in an apparent jab at Navarro.
Navarro is a joke. Donny is a joke.
