And the pollies let it happen.

Just when the American economy was recovered after their self inflicted 2008 crises, the Orange Idiot and his economic advisers who, from my reading, also don't understand economics, are destroying what was being built up. But he, the words of Golden Boy were, "Trade wars are easy to win". He's not even going to learn that you can't just under pay a contractor or materials supplier like he does when he was giving the appearance of building, err buildings.

With all these tariffs being imposed, you really will see Reagan's "trickle down" economics in action.
