The way Trump tries to grab credit even while none is due, the fact that he has said nothing says a lot.

Trump and Juncker: The art of the no-deal


Nothing the two men agreed on reflects a shift in policy.

Trump disses the Kochs.

GOP candidates must be freaking the phuck out as the Lying Dotard insults their sugar daddies.

@realDonaldTrump

The globalist Koch Brothers, who have become a total joke in real Republican circles, are against Strong Borders and Powerful Trade. I never sought their support because I don’t need their money or bad ideas. They love my Tax & Regulation Cuts, Judicial picks & more. I made...them richer. Their network is highly overrated, I have beaten them at every turn. They want to protect their companies outside the U.S. from being taxed, I’m for America First & the American Worker - a puppet for no one. Two nice guys with bad ideas. Make America Great Again!

Layoffs from Trump tariffs are piling up. So are calls for more bailouts.

MAGA!

Accusations fly as firms seek to avoid Trump's steel tariff

The lies don’t end with Donny. US Steel companies are getting into the act.

Does this Missouri town blame Trump for job-killing tariff? Hint: You know the answer

WTF is wrong with these idiot Trumpkins? They seem to be blissfully immune to facts. How can anyone be stupid enough to believe a word Donny says?

It's more important to to them think they've been right all along, than it is to actually be right.

Trump's tax cuts will widen the trade deficit and hurt GDP

Oops. Hey, Whell! ‘Splain this one to those of us who don’t listen to your favorite con artists.

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/trump...151536871.html

Quote:
The U.S. trade deficit in June widened by $3.2 billion and Trump’s own policies could be to blame.

After narrowing for three straight months, the U.S. trade balance with the rest of the world expanded in June to $46.3 billion as exports slowed. Exports rose sharply in prior months as the potential impacts from tariffs imposed by the Trump administration were front-run.

Economists at Barclays see Friday’s report as a harbinger of things to come, as the tax cuts boosting the U.S. economy will continue to grow imports while exports growth is likely to slow as firms deal with the impact of tariffs. Imports subtract from the GDP calculation while exports add to GDP growth.

President Trump tweeted Sunday morning that his tariffs are “working big time” and made a bizarre claim that the money raised from these new import taxes will go a long way to helping pay down America’s large debt. (Short answer: That’s not what will happen).

https://www.washingtonpost.com/busin...ssive-us-debt/

It'll be fun to read Whell's idiotic response in support of this lie.

Trump Tweets 'Tariffs Working Big Time,' U.S. Trade Deficit Jumps 7 Percent In June


The U.S. trade gap is currently on track to hit a ten-year high, despite a series of tariffs imposed on products and raw materials around the world by the Trump administration. The deficit climbed $3 billion to $46.3 billion in June from $43.2 billion in May, the Commerce Department reported Friday. That was the first increase in four months and the quickest uptick since November 2016.

Are you tired of all this winning?
