Der Trumper really is a closet Commie - he's taking over management of the American Economy by using tariffs and bailouts to regulate demand, prices and production - Stalin could not have done better.

Trump Creates Farm Crisis - Taxpayers Pay Farmers

Per CNBC:

 

  • Kansas Republican Sen. Jerry Moran urges President Donald Trump to abandon trade conflicts with key allies such as Canada, Mexico and the European Union and instead focus his efforts on alleged Chinese trade abuses.
  • Moran is among Republican senators from states hit by the president's trade policy that have criticized Trump's tariff actions.

Trump sure does love setting himself up to be the hero. First he creates the situation, and then he swoops in to rescue us all from himself. What a fraud!

 

 


Exactly!  I read an article earlier today that sums it up quite well:

 

"If your only goal is to appeal to voters who already mistrust what the media and experts are telling them and you have little regard for specifics, it becomes easier to manufacture crises and then claim you have used them to obtain concessions. As long as the E.U. imports more soybeans, Trump has something specific he can point to as a deliverable from his trade war strategy. And people who want to believe Trump will believe he just stuck it to the E.U. and bent it to his will."


Assume nothing. Question everything. And start thinking.

The Biggest Irony here is Trump Tariffs - put Trumps Daughter out of Businesss

 

Ivanka was losing outlets faster than Limbuagh lost sponsors - her stuff is way to tacky for the GOPerLords and way way too expensive for the Republcian base.

Tariffs are not "communist economic theory" - unless you can show otherwise.


Perhaps not but Financial Chaos and Economic Instability is a Common Theme around the Rise to Power of Many Autocrats.............................

 

Trump is purposefully attempting to create this Scenario in the US right now - against the Advice and Counsel of the US Congress

 

 

 

 

 


Hey, the economic collapse orchestrated by Republicans in 1932 brought Der Fuhrer to power. While that may have been accidental, the GOPers know it works, so why would they NOT try to use it to keep themselves in power now?

But tariffs are taxes paid by the consumer of the goods, right?

 

So Trump raises taxes, crashes and crushes farmers with them, then comes back to all the people he raised taxes on and says WE need to save the farmers from the mess TRUMP created.

 

Well I'm all for saving farmers and farms, but the 1% should give up their tax tax to save them.

Apparently the adage "don't throw the baby out with the bath water" has no relevance in Trump world.

 

 


Great idea - Repeal the Reagan taxscam so we can pay for all the damage Der Trumper's Trade War creates.

 Come on, Mick, don't play games. We are talking about tariffs here and parity on the international economic scene. Also, it is parity of opportunity, not outcome.


It doesn;t matter the Scale or the Size of the Market - it's the same Principle.....................manipulation by Government.............................Americans were obviously happy with inexpensive products from other Countries at Walmart and on Amazon knowing all along they came from China Vietnam Mexico Canada Etc. .................Americans were happy importing their luxury cars & trucks from Foreign Countries...........................

 

Trump must have read something about Economics in 1984 and he's trying to fix a problem that doesn't exist today - just like he's trying to re-create Orwells 1984.......................today

 

He's Insane Corrupt and not fit to be President

 

   Same comment - parity in international commerce is totally unrelated to 1984.

Trump Cult members illustrate why they are part of his Cult. They never hold their leader accountable or responsible for his behavior or actions. In this case, the farm crisis was a problem created solelly by the stupid Trade War Trump, and only Trump, started.


What can the quote possibly have to do with your copy&paste?

   Did everyone see the picture of Donald and his new farmer cap?

 

    It is quite a doozy - and because it is supposed to represent farming???   well , it is green.   

 

    Hilariously, he is complaining about China and that they are big meanies for daring to put tariffs on stuff.   I assume that everyone knows that the color green in china is a signal of cuckhold...something that the current WH regime gang is quite familiar with , albeit they attempt to whine about anyone but themselves and their own leader.  https://www.scmp.com/news/china/economy/article/2156708/trump-administration-plans-send-billions-eme...
