I really don't think ppl understand the crisis trump's trade war has caused. Even if we elect a dem in 2020 the market share these farmers and other businesses have lost will likely be permanent. It will be up to a dem pres to tell em the hard truth and to try to find a solution.
trump has not only LOST his trade war he's killed entire markets for farmers and businesses for decades and decades to come. China has found other suppliers (Russia for example) and those new deals are likely to be in place for decades.
If you think it's bad for farmers NOW, wait until a dem pres has to clean up trump's trade war mess after he's deported all the migrants and US farmers and businesses have to compete with other countries who are using slave labor to grow those soybeans they are shipping to China
Y’all should have really listened to her. politifact.com/truth-o-meter/…
And literally only thing rest of those in America not directly hurt by his trade war is going to see is higher prices at the checkout counter. It's a trickle down trump trade war and it's (not) amazing to me that the same GOP who say higher taxes on corps trickle down, don't care
Say it with me: tariffs are TAXES that you and I end up paying one way or another. trump has no power as the pres of the US to decide the tax policy of another country. He's lying to ppl. All that $ he's claiming China is paying is coming from US businesses and US consumers.
Finally, I didn't need my daddy to buy me a degree from Wharton to understand all this. This is shit I learned in my HS econ class.
PS: trump's trade war is perfect ex of how stupid most ppl in America are. Our side is unable to convince ppl that paying higher taxes for #MedForAll wld be a net savings for em vs priv ins, and trump is able to raise taxes on most of us via his #GOPTaxScam and tariff taxes.
