    Save the steel industry by destroying manufacturers reliant on cheap steel.

    I wouldn't count on that, trumps policy is based entirely on who he has most recently spoken to

    President Trump on Friday continued bucking his advisers and GOP leaders by acknowledging for the first time he could be triggering a global trade war by imposing tariffs on steel and aluminum.

    And a few hours later he said that this was just the beginning, promising “RECIPROCAL TAXES” against any country that has an import duty on U.S. goods or services.

    "When a country Taxes our products coming in at, say, 50%, and we Tax the same product coming into our country at ZERO, not fair or smart. We will soon be starting RECIPROCAL TAXES so that we will charge the same thing as they charge us. $800 Billion Trade Deficit-have no choice!"

    Who are these idiots thinking balance of trade is something worth legislating for in the 21st century?

    Are we going to to revert to an economy based on how much gold we can steal from each others' navies next?

    Like the 80s, mercantilism is making a comeback.

    Well everything the voters voting for chief orange wanted is for progress to stop and go back in time.

    Hardly surprising.

    "I think we could all do with sitting back a bit and detaching ourselves from the situation to really think about how these issues reflect on our future and how we discuss them here and be a bit less aggressive or defensive because everyone has a complicated set of circumstances that has led the to place importance on particular issues and it doesn't meany any of them is less valid, we just need to look at the broader picture"

    All truth passes through three stages.
    First, it is ridiculed.
    Second, it is violently opposed.
    Third, it is accepted as being self-evident..

    The US ruining it's export industry is going to be a big problem for Europe though and to our security. A weakened US is not good for any of us, given the rise in power of Russia and China.

    I think now more than ever it's important for a politically strong EU, but then we have Brexit and the murmuring of far right voices in Eastern Europe, Italy, Greece. I've always been against a EU membership for Norway due to our small size and economy, but shit like this tends to awaken the pro unionist in me.

    "He's now president for life. President for life. And he's great," Trump said, referring to China's President Xi Jinping according to a recording obtained by CNN. "I think it's great. Maybe we'll give that a shot someday."
    Every second you think he can't possibly get worse or say something more stupid....it gets worse because he says something more stupid.

    Joke or not, any right winger who doesn't stomp all over this quote is a fucking hypocrite of the worst order, because all the shit-stirring Republicans/Righties made pre-Trump election over fears Obama might try to get a third term or hold up the elections, etc.

    Dumb shit like this needs stomped down hard, by all sides.
