Trump mentions tariff debate of 1880’s. Also a time of backlash against Rockefellers, Morgans, Vanderbilts, etc from railroad & other monopolies. Trump then said that in 1913 they just did away with tariffs.

*** The Federal Reserve was created in 1913 by those folks. ***
Wikipedia:
“Tariff policy was the principal issue in the election, as Cleveland (D) had proposed a dramatic reduction in tariffs, arguing that high tariffs were unfair to consumers. Harrison (R) took the side of industrialists and factory workers who wanted to keep tariffs high.”
