scattershot protectionism

via presidential edict is about the most perfect setup for rewarding your political allies and punishing your enemies that you'll ever find.

 

DD will claim that it is all part of his negotiating brilliance in search of a comprehensive trade policy.

 

Nothing is going to happen along those lines given the views of the majority of the current GOP caucus, but I guess the claim will be that he's going to have enough longevity and influence to replace them with his kind of folks. Good luck on that.

 

He could also find some allies on trade with the progressives on the other side of the aisle but that would be regarded by The Base as way worse than banging hookers while your wife is home nursing the baby.

Re: scattershot protectionism

With trade, the bottomline is we run trade deficits, some large with certain countries, that effects our living wage employment and GDP.  So long as we "lay back and enjoy it" it is going to continue, if you can bake a cake without 3 eggs being broken at some point, you`ll have to share that recipe.

 

The objective isn`t to necessarily run a trade surplus with the world or even a perfect balance, but to at least be pretty close.  Our trading partners are really lathered about being stood up to, just like you threaten to take away some executive`s key to the washroom.  

 

Trump is a deal maker and don`t be surprised after all the fire & fury that a country currently is running a $65 billion trade surplus against us will have to make it up partly buying more pork and soybeans.

To busy drivin' the bus?? You obviously haven't been paying attention, or don't want to, but DD is abbreviation for Dave Denison, the Donalds  aka on the Stormy Daniels agreement.

Lefts feeble attempt

to pin a derogatory nickname on President Trump, like Nutz or Boritz or Cuckoo Clock.

 

Or like Barry or the Zero, etc. on the former POTUS.

 

Its all fair....I do it, they can certainly try to come up with something witty or clever.

 

Who knows, maybe sometime they will.

Re: Lefts feeble attempt

It's sort of fascinating to probe into whatever the heck is the matter with you that makes you so susceptible to the embrace of the personality cult around our fascist POTUS.
