Trump Started Trade War Because He Was Angry
 
According to two officials, Trump's decision to launch a potential trade war was born out of anger at other simmering issues and the result of a broken internal process that has failed to deliver him consensus views that represent the best advice of his team.

On Wednesday evening, the president became "unglued," in the words of one official familiar with the president's state of mind.

A trifecta of events had set him off in a way that two officials said they had not seen before: Hope Hicks' testimony to lawmakers investigating Russia's interference in the 2016 election, conduct by his embattled attorney general and the treatment of his son-in-law by his chief of staff.

Trump, the two officials said, was angry and gunning for a fight, and he chose a trade war, spurred on by Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and Peter Navarro, the White House director for trade — and against longstanding advice from his economic chair Gary Cohn and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin.

Me thinks it has to do with the vote in PA next week. Get the base's blood up to turn out. A lot of steel mills in PA!

For a while I wondered if Trumps tantrums were the culmination of a 28 day cycle.

Unfortunately his periods or on a much shorter cycle.

Sweden's Electrolux, Europe's largest home appliance maker, said on Friday it would delay a planned $250 million investment in Tennessee, after US President Donald Trump announced tariffs on imported aluminum and steel.

I think the Lying Dotard understands economics even worse than Whell, if that's even possible.:p

Fat Donnie Trumpolini twitter rages at the Europeans over their response to his massively stupid trade war.

@realDonaldTrump

The United States has an $800 Billion Dollar Yearly Trade Deficit because of our “very stupid” trade deals and policies. Our jobs and wealth are being given to other countries that have taken advantage of us for years. They laugh at what fools our leaders have been. No more!

and as if that wasn't enough, he pulls out his ignorance and waves it around...

@realDonaldTrump

If the E.U. wants to further increase their already massive tariffs and barriers on U.S. companies doing business there, we will simply apply a Tax on their Cars which freely pour into the U.S. They make it impossible for our cars (and more) to sell there. Big trade imbalance!

Oh, won’t BMW, with its 10,000 US workers in Red State SC, respond well to that! What a moron Donny is. Well, at least he’s finally making lots of Repube enemies. Impeachment getting closer...

Not to mention a large Mercedes plant near Tuscaloosa, AL and a VW plant in Chattanooga. Somehow I'm starting to think Lying Donnie Dotard isn't a stable genius.

Stupid is as stupid does. I never thought any president would beat Gee Dubya's mean spirited dumbfuckery but this moron takes the cake, the pan and the oven. It's like the GOP decided to meld Louis Gomert-Texas and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and run the scion of that mash up for President. :p

There better be some federal prison sentences for these assholes when all is said and done. Godspeed Bobby Mueller, godspeed. :p
