How is it a tourist tax if it is paid by American consumers?

Poor reading comprehension, or just deliberately obtuse? I said that presidents have less impact on the economy than they are given credit or blame for. I also said that there was some 7 years of...

No, but Jared has been doing so without any experience in that arena. So I guess he is equally qualified to be Chief of Staff without any relevant experience in that area.
