Read this answer very carefully. It makes no sense and is typical of the far right. The answer talks about this trade war is for own best interests. Now Trump told us it was to get back at China for dumping Steel in the USA. FOX Business told us the same thing as China was the bad one here by doing it. Then the facts came out. China sends very little steel to the US so will not really be hurt. The countries that send most of the steel here are our friends and allies. Canada being number one, Brazil number 2 with Japan, Mexico, and South Korea. If you know anything about the making of products the supply line between Canada and the US is very integrated and something like this could destroy it. Things can move back and forth across the border a number of times. Look at cars it is a good example. Once again Trump knows nothing about the subject and acted on his own stupid judgement. He did not even talk to his advisers. He need a fight to change the subject. Only his stupid far right base would support him.


You're right - I did - it doesn't.

Do you mean high risk companies like CATERPILLAR, APPLE, and GENERAL MOTORS?

 

If you are saying that one should not be invested in stocks in the later years as was ONCE the guidance; you are way behind the times.

 

Most financial planners now recommend some investment in the stock market as part of a well rounded portfolio; even for old clients as it is the best hedge against inflation.


True - a well rounded investment portfolio is always best. At certain times shifting of risk emphasis is essential. Anyone in the proper investment condition will not be hurt by this.

 

I was responding to the panicked thought that this was leading to "starving in the street".

Keep on thinking that, my friend.... Donald is depending on that.

I see know reason why the President should care what I think.

 

This tariff will not be in our best interest.

How do you know that? The details are yet to be negotiated.

 

Cars will cost more, infrastructure building will cost more, many other things will cost more for U.S. citizens. That little bit of tax relief will be eaten up by these increased costs.

It's possible. On the other hand if more jobs are created - there is no doubt a balance point in there somewhere.

 

The kool-aid at the White House must really be having an effect because this tariff will affect our closest neighbor, CANADA, more than any other country. They are also one of our closest allies.

Kool-aid is a childish comment. As to Canada, I assume Trudeau is mature enough to understand and appreciate each national leader working in the best interests of his or her country.

 

Trump is so inept on economics that he is now flying in the face of all of his economic advisors just so he can fulfill a "campaign" talking point for HIS BASE.

True - few pols take their campaign promises seriously. It would appear that President Trump is the exception.

 

It is obvious how wrong the financial world sees this stupid move on his part, losing billions of value in just a few short days.

They are realistic and will adjust as thinks become clearer. It is uncertainty they dislike.

 

It is obvious how wrong our allies feel about this stupid move by their very words.

Of course they would rather our President acted in their interests, not ours.

 

The tariffs will not affect our enemies whatsoever.

 

Tariffs have NEVER had a good ending.... NEVER.

 

Trump has bankrupted his companies four times and I won't be surprised if he ruins the economy of the UNITED STATES in the same manner.

 

He is an idiot.


You are acting as if he just invented tariffs. I believe the blind hatred is obstructing your objective thinking on the issue.

I see nothing funny about a person not knowing how to manage their investments in retirement, it can be devastating - I've seen it happen.


Yes it is sad and happens all the time with the far right. Keep in mind the experts tell us the far right are uneducated.

It all comes down to a definition of terms. If a tariff war is being waged for national domination - that can't be easy. However, in this case I believe that the concept is to get the idea out that we will be attending to our own best interests and fully expect others to do the same. That can be a lot easier once the ground rules are understood. Remember, he is only looking for equal treatment as opposed to us looking to benefit others as has often been the case in the past. President Trump acts as the President of the USofA, not the world.


Starting a tariff war is not "in our own best inerests", only ignorance would make someone think differently.


Letting our trading partners know that we will be working in our own best interests and will expect the same from them sets the table for clear and honest negotiations, only ignorance........nah, fuggetaboudit, honest differences can exist without "ignorance".
