All of our existing trade agreements and tariff policies are also proof of that. It’s pretty hard to be successful at poker when you show your cards every hand.
It’s also hard to negotiate any type of deal when you have a bunch of idiots looking over your shoulder and trying to trip you up at every turn.
The biased mainstream media should try just reporting the news rather than giving their “expert,” yet totally inexperienced, opinion on these matters.
When I hear some of these politicians and their comments, and the biased lamestream media and their comments, I just have to shake my head and laugh, because I can see that President Trump is strategically 3 or 4 moves ahead of everyone else.
All of these “know it alls” should just let President Trump do his job. He was elected because he wasn’t your average “talk a lot and do nothing” politician. He was elected to get our country back on a successful track. He was elected to show all of these other foreign countries that we really aren’t a bunch of stupid patsies to be taken advantage of.
The truth of the matter is that The United States holds all of the winning cards. All we have to do is play them.
Just watch the good deal that we’ll end up getting on NAFTA.
And as far as the 25 percent tariff on steel imports and a 10 percent tariff on aluminum imports, if this is what’s necessary to insure healthy steel and aluminum producing companies in our country, then so be it. This benefits blue collar steel and aluminum workers, and more importantly, it addresses a matter of national security, which no one seems to be considering.
If the United States were to get into a significant conflict, we would need to be able to produce significant quantities of steel and aluminum for the production of defense related weapons, equipment and supplies, without being dependent on other countries for our steel and aluminum.
Our “friends” in Europe have been taking advantage of “sweetheart” deals from The United States ever since World War II. I think it is way past time that they put their “big boy pants” on and stand on their own two feet, and deal with us on a level playing field.
We are 20 Trillion dollars in debt my friends. We cannot afford to throw money around that we no longer have.
