    European tariffs on Harley-Davidson bikes in response to Trumps tariffs have the obvious effect.

    Harleys will now be made outside of the US.

    It's not a tax, it's a tariff.

    Tariffs are taxes Suzy.

    Whodey economics 101

    Trump economics 101, tariffs will make America great again as you pay higher prices for things............while tariffs from other countries are making you pay more for goods to get even with Trump.

    Trump keeps babbling about "fair trade" like a poor demented liberal babbling about life not being fair.

    Well guess what, nothing about life is fair children. In fact, what does fair mean exactly?

    Mutually assured destruction. It's a Mexican standoff. All the governments will make their citizens pay more for goods, just to spite the opposing country's leader. No idea where this is going to lead us but Trump is apparently betting on America outlasting everyone else. I'm not sold on that.

    What long face?
    I don't care about US jobs.

    I'm just pointing out the idiocy of Trump's policy.
    Whether you are right-wing, left-wing or down the middle you must see that it does not make sense.

    He’s a low-brow narcissistic man-child who hasn’t got the first clue about leadership, foreign policy, domestic policy, international economics, equality, race relations, neighbourly relations, diversity, the internet or hair style. The man is a ridiculous parody of himself, a cartoon character and every time he opens is silly little tweety-pie mouth he confirms his ignorance to the entire world.

    Whodey - who do you think will end up paying for the tariffs (and possible trade wars)?

    HINT: It won't be the corporations.

    Do you not understand sarcasm?

    I am in no way supportive of the tariffs, much like I am not supportive of his spending and lack of commitment to building his promised wall.

    I just love it as people like yourself try to demean Trump as an idiot but this supposed idiot beat Hillary who won a rigged primary against Bernie.

    At least Trump understands how to use e-mail and seems to have made more head way with the economy and NK than those before him.

    You do realize Hillary would have been a disaster, right?

    Hilary may have been a disaster ... but a different sort of disaster.

    What you fail to see is that everything and I mean EVERYTHING
    Trump touches is a disaster. He is bad for the US, bad for the world,
    but most importantly (I think) he is bad for the position POTUS. He
    has brought the office into disrepute, the man has no class, no respect
    for what came before him and no care for anyone but himself.
