Trump just wakes up and pretends to be interested until something shiny catches his attention.

Add to that fact his attention span is very, very limited.  Whatever doesn't reflect back his own shiny awsomeness is not worth a 2nd look.  Well, if he has to, "Well see".

"He intends to be tactically unpredictable and thinks it’s a fantastic negotiating approach,”

"Failure written all over it"

I agree.  US Rule of Law is not going to allow him or any of us to be "unpredictable" as to responsibility for our relationships with said Law.  Law does not consider that approach "fantastic" and has the entire US judical system to make that point.

Yes, not only for the driver. But for anyone who purchases goods that are transported. The businesses just pass their own increased costs on to the customer.

   I would add one more observation:   Recently Donald has been hitting on Commerce Secretary Ross.   He has called him old and not really up to the job.    Ross was siding with Muchkin to assure that WH renter doesn't crash the world economy.   This may be his knee-jerk action to "show donald he is working".    What some business insiders have written, is that Ross is another guy who really likes the perks of the job and has little interest in resigning.     That is another problem that donald created, he hired people who by and large won't respond to "request to resign" and donald doesn't want to show his followers that he has made bad choices and doesn't want to be seen firing people.

 

   Pence was a fool  as he destroyed the NAFTA treaty negotiation, with his stupid time limit demand.

   NAFTA negotiations have long passed the deadline that the WH renter had demanded and now he can either destroy it entirely ( and expect more whiplash ) or admit that his threats had no impact on the process.    The catch-22 is that Robert Lighthizer was hired for this job by the WH renter because of his ideology and now he appears to be unable to complete the one task donald hired him to do.

Well Pence can do something about an unhinged President with an Amendment if he just had the GUTS. He has no guts and is 1/2 as bad as Trump anyway. He knows full well what has been going on all along.

War inside Trump trade team triggers global angst

"Failure written all over it" is a continued description of the disjointed Trump attempts at negotiating anything.  It looks like the NAFTA talks are headed for failure after Pence's ultimatum and there is no rational behind the tariffs Trump is putting on.  His adventures with North Korea have shown how unprepared he is for the world stage. 

 

Where Obama would have all his ducks in a row and his entire team on the same page Trump just wakes up and pretends to be interested until something shiny catches his attention. 

 

America has a neophyte at the helm and it is showing. 

 

 

 

“This begins and ends at the top, and the president is behind all of it. He intends to be tactically unpredictable and thinks it’s a fantastic negotiating approach,” said economist Douglas Holtz-Eakin, president of the conservative American Action Forum. “But they are on a course that has failure written all over it. What you wind up doing is confusing people, doing incalculable damage to relationships with allies and shooting yourself in the foot on the economy when regulatory and tax reform are doing so well.”
