Trump started a trade war with everyone on purpose. Just like military wars, trade wars have casualties and collateral damage. Everyone told him on the left and right, that it was a stupid idea, but he barged ahead anyway like a bull moose in rut.
This may be the blunder that does him in. This time he has hurt hundreds of corporations who have the money to turf him. Trump should get blamed for the coming domestic price increases that are a side effect of the trade war. He will lose those supporters who hate him or find him disgusting but trust him with the economy.
Also consider the possibility Trump is trying to tank the US economy. After all, that is what Putin wants.~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:70)
