    What are these "tariffs" that caused Dow Jones to fall so far on Wednesday, it erased all gains from 2018?

    “We don’t have tariffs anywhere,” President Trump said in a recent interview with The Wall Street Journal. In fact, his administration this year has placed levies on more than $300 billion in imports.

    “We don’t even have tariffs,” he said in the interview. “I’m using tariffs to negotiate. I mean, other than some tariffs on steel—which is actually small, what do we have? ... Where do we have tariffs? We don’t have tariffs anywhere.”

    Republicans will totally protect people with Pre-Existing Conditions, Democrats will not! Vote Republican.

    He can't stop himself, can he?

    Soybeans for one. I live in a farming state and the farmers are losing millions this year on soybeans due to Trumps tariffs. China has now 100% quit buying all soybeans from the US due to Dumps tariffs. Until this year 40% of our soybeans were sold to China. Harley Davidson is now moving production overseas due to Dumps tariffs. Dump is a liar and always has been. such as, 10 percent tax cuts for the working class before the midterms; lol, Congress is not even in session before the midterms . DUH!

    He wasn’t really though, was he?
    No, eh?
    No. He wasn’t.

    In fact, he was asked: “Are the tariffs hurting the country?”
    And he answered the response which we’re discussing.

    Seriously. How stupid do you and he think we are?
    I can see what he’s written, I can watch what he’s said and I can hear what he’s asked.

    I think there’s something mentally wrong with you, just for trying to cover for his sorry arse.

    This guy disagrees:

    Tariffs are working big time. Every country on earth wants to take wealth out of the U.S., always to our detriment. I say, as they come,Tax them. If they don’t want to be taxed, let them make or build the product in the U.S. In either event, it means jobs and great wealth.....

    Here's an example of a company that needs to start making or building its product in the US: https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1038453273286664193
