You know it makes sense.
The tariff thing isn’t a war. I’m not Trump’s best buddy pal right now but he’s doing the things he promised to get elected – not betraying his country with crony globalized capitalism.
The EU is a joke and their tariff on Chinese steel is over a whopping 70%.
If Trump has a brain under all that hair, he’ll get Merkel kicked out and take the whole EU down with that one domino purely by raising the 2% laughable US tariff on foreign cars to match the EU’s tariff on foreign cars, quite a lot higher.
As for the Brexit line – they couldn’t sell us on the sky falling so they’re pushing Regrexit.
Leave voters don’t regret wanting their rights back, no amount of change is worth that. Remember, Judas was paid.
They’re tired of being globalism’s whipping boy, like Trump voters.
That trend isn’t going to go away. It’s like a battered wife fighting back, it only gets stronger.
Without the EU’s xenophobic tariffs, it would’ve crumbled before the end of the last century. Like any Communist, they are not competitive. They cannot survive.
The post-WW lull on tariff was intended as a breather to rebuild, we’re now returning to normal competition.
Economies are zero-sum. May sold our steel prospects for inferior products by the Chinese, their gain is our direct loss. Trump is making the moral decision.
He isn’t running global economies, he is running one country and his sworn duty is to that country and its people alone.
