Trump Creates Farm Crisis - Taxpayers Pay Farmers

Message 21 of 108

As we've learned, Trump's Cult members were absent from school when logic was taught. 

 

The argument they're currently following like puppets from Trump and Fox, is the U.S. is being taken advantage of by tariffs. Really? If the U.S. is at such a disadvantage, then why do we have a booming economy which is far and away number one in the world? This has been true for decades.

 

But don't ask a Trump Cult member that question because they can't or won't answer it. RK's response was a perfect example of avoiding the key question.

Why do Trump's cult members refuse to question, challenge, or disagree with their idol and hero in the White House?


Reason #1 - supporters of the President do not have an idol or a hero in the WH.

 

Reason #2 - what would you like to see questioned, a thriving economy???

The objective TRUMP STATED was to get rid of our Trade Deficits because the moron thinks they are a bad thing. In fact, he's SOOO DUMB he thinks this will be good for America.
HIS "objective" will drive American wages down to the level of the lowest cost supplier - the Commie slaves of Asia. That way the American people will not be able to afford to buy goods produced overseas and the TRADE DEFICIT goes away, as does American prosperity and the lifestyle of the bottom 99%.
Forget the crystal ball for a bit. I said, "The objective is to use tariff negotiations to get parity for American producers - obviously a good thing all around". Do you find fault in that objective or in using tariffs as a negotiation tool?

EasyEd refused to deal with FACTS. He claims the US economy is booming, yet he somehow believes tariffs are hurting us? That doesn't make sense. How are tariffs hurting us if our economy is firing on all cylinders? But remember, his idol and hero in the White House told him tariffs are hurting the US and EasyEd automatically believes Trump.

 

Remember when Trump told EasyEd he would not benefit from the new GOP tax plan? Incredibly, Ed believed him?

 

The U.S. dominates the global economy and we have for decades. EasyEd needs to stop listening to everything Fox and Trump tells him. He should instead research the facts.

The tariffs will hurt some but most will be benefit. EU agreeing to buy more of our farm goods will help and China not able to grow enough to feed one billion people will continue to buy even with new tariffs.  Good times now and Good times in the future.

I guess if he had his way everything would be made in a foreign country because it would be good for America. Trade deficits have been stifling our economy for decades and finally we have a President with the nerve to say NO MORE! America First for a change is what we been waiting for.

Duh ...... you forgot to include that the cost of the tariffs will be passed on to the American consumer in the price of the imported goods, so the American consumer actually pays for the cost of the tariffs. Then all Americans pay the money given to the farmers to buy their votes for trump.  Lose, lose ........ no upside.


The objective is to use tariff negotiations to get parity for American producers - obviously a good thing all around.

Logic always escapes the Trump haters.  The Chicken Little Trump Haters were predicting "the sky was falling" a year ago and a Depression was about to happen. Today every economic reform Trump has put in place has work to better our  great economy and soon the Trade Wars we have been losing for 50 years will soon be reversed. I`m sure when we accomplished this ,the lefties will move on to other gloom and doom scenario. GDP will be out in 30 minutes and I`m predicting at least 4 %.
