Trump signs tariffs

Canada and Mexico are exempt, any other nation can apply for exemption.

White House officials say the tariffs are an essential matter of domestic and economic security.

Tariffs work as NK agrees to denuclearize.

Right. They would have been in deep trouble with those tariffs on all that NK steel we import.

What's going to be funny is when the EU gets it's exemption...

This will be a big nothing-burger in terms of policy at that point.

Your clueless, what our North & South bordered countries are exempt from is to be announced per NAFTA redone or they get the same knee pads as everyone else. China dumping with the help of anyone else is over. Exactly what you did not want is going be, any country who puts a 30% duty on our cars to enter their EU country will face the same 30% here. Plenty of material for you to post for over the next few years.

The tariffs are mainly aimed at China and they put pressure on NK

So we place tariffs on steel imports but then offer exemptions to our leading importers...

No, my friend, this is an optics victory for the #Maga crowd that likely does nothing.

Why don't you hold off with that until President Donald J. Trump really pisses on you real soon. Your patting yourself on the back too early for tomorrow and too late for today. I never believed your conservative bull, but I did think that you thought that you were smoother than baby shit and smarter than the rest of us. Not.

If you put a tax on an import but then give tax exemptions to the people it most applies to is it really a tax? Yes or no?

The vast majority of Americans support President Trumpís economic nationalist agenda on foreign trade, wherein the populist president is in the process of renegotiating multinational trade deals like the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

As Trump signed into law his 25 percent tariff on imported steel and 10 percent tariff on imported aluminum to protect American workers and U.S. industries, more than 80 percent of Americans say they support the presidentís trade economic nationalism.

In a Harvard-Harris poll, about 83 percent of Americans said they supported Trumpís effort to level the playing field on foreign trade to reverse the decades-long pattern of multinational free trade agreements which have wiped out broad portions of the Rust Belt and middle America.
http://www.breitbart.com/big-governm...c-nationalism/


This country has been in an economic down spiral for decades, accelerating with true 'free' trade Republican, G.H.W. Bush right on through the America hating Barack Obama, inclusive, thanks to the lie and hoax of unfettered 'free' trade, which has proven not to be free by any means or metrics.

Your real good with the play by play Trump hate, you will have plenty of material over the next few years. But the reality will be the shit on your face with everything you complain about, I can't imagine anything that comes to pass that your going to like.

You're real good at being unable to answer yes/no questions.
