PUG and R2 both have valid points regarding tariffs, trade wars and the media. However, just sit back and watch that show unfold. Whether or not I like POTUS is irrelevant...but he is the Master of manipulating the Media. They fall for his misdirection every time, i.e. look at what my right hand is doing so my left hand can get the deal done that I am working on. Remember the huge ruckus the Media made of the trade/tariff/NAFTA situation? While they unwittingly yelled at the rain, POTUS was working on North Korea, then when the Media switched to North Korea, POTUS was putting a Mexico/Canada trade plan together that was in the best interest of these United States. Mark down today's date, POTUS will do the same thing with China and others regarding tariffs. I'm positive that while the Media is yelling at the Supreme Court nomination, POTUS is putting together a China trade deal.
Every time the Media is focused on the right hand...the left hand will pull a preverbal rabbit out of the hat.
The "bashers" are trying to do the same thing in Penny Land to scare investors in one direction while they make their way in another.
