Re: USA starts a trade war with allies

Trump: “Trade wars are good and easy to win.”

Is he telling the truth or lying?
Can anyone believe a word he says?

Re: USA starts a trade war with allies

...it doesn't make sense to assume any of his "whoppers" reflect his genuine beliefs about the world. How can you assume anything about 45? He lies when it suits him or when he's ignorant on an issue. For someone who by his own word values loyalty above all else, he certainly doesn't feel any reaso...

Re: USA starts a trade war with allies

It's just a load of opposition crap. Just like Obama and the birth certificate nonsense. It's not a load of opposition crap. Trump is breaking records for most staffers to bail on his administration. He cannot work well with most other people. He is an extremely toxic and unstable narcissistic soci...

Re: USA starts a trade war with allies

...given the context of international diplomacy, was that no one who matters really believes that Trump is irrational or unstable. I don't believe that is true either. I think there are plenty of world leaders who must be worried about Trump's mental health, some of whom believe he is irrational an...

Re: USA starts a trade war with allies

Right. The old "he's so crazy he might just do it" plan.

Problem is, irrational and unstable people like 45 turn off the rational ones who then start looking for other rational partners.

Unless they perversely enjoy being abused by their partner.

Re: USA starts a trade war with allies

I'm not a fan of tariffs either, but they do serve a clear purpose: massaging competitive imbalances to protect domestic industry. Every country in the world wants to have domestic steel and manufacturing, agriculture, electronics, and energy production. Some countries have more natural resources an...

Re: USA starts a trade war with allies

...but according to Nate Silver, Trump was actually the favorite at various times. in any event, Silver nailed his prediction: Clinton by 3%, which is what she won by. Last night I was thinking about the upcoming U.S. Senate election in California where centrist Dianne Feinstein recently lost the e...

Re: Go for guns first, due process second

Republicans are never serious about gun control when they trot out prohibitions for the mentally ill. Everyone agrees on that but Republicans also claim to hate government coercion against anyone, including the mentally ill.

They want their cake and to eat it too. How convenient.

Re: Go for guns first, due process second

...where as he will piss of republicans enough to not vote for him. I think you (and Democrats) underestimate the ability of Republicans to hate Democrats when they step into the voting booth.
