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. ***
“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.”
“Tariffs were the greatest (approaching 95% at times) source of federal revenue until the Federal income tax began after 1913. For well over a century the federal government was largely financed by tariffs averaging about 20% on foreign imports.”
