    And the reason given ?

    National Security......so as to appeal to his paranoic redneck disciples...........reminding me of the comic line "Infamy infamy the whole world has it infa us" With a little poetic licence of course.

    I thought I knew more than this until I opened my mouth

    It IS one of the great lines

    Is Trump actually doing anything to China, or are these tarriffs aimed entirely at the EU and the US' close allies? Whose agenda would that suit? Putin's? Or is it just sheer incompetence and stupidity?
    The crowd: "Yes! We are all individuals!"
    Lone voice: "I'm not."

    Trump threatened China the most severely and early on. Then China signed some agreement for his business to do something and he suddenly backed off and even offered US help to one of the Chinese companies penalized by his early order. Now he's threatening allies, who of course, will each put their own sanctions in place to protect themselves.

    He doesn't have a clue what he is doing and obviously has never ready any books or even summaries of how trade wars have historically worked to produce negative consequences. <sign>
