Sarah Huckleberry Sanders goes crazy and beats the living piss out of Trump in 5... 4... 3... 2...

Stormy indeed.

Canada, China and the European Union have already said they would respond with tariffs of their own that could lead to billions of dollars in American export losses. Those levies would harm the farmers and business interests that the Trump administration has promised to protect and would fuel a trade fight that could undermine the president’s goal of strengthening American industry.

I went back and read your first post on it

Quote:
it's primarily the capitalists that benefit from globalism from a trade perspective
You’ve given us very little to respond to. Is isolationism the opposite of globalism?

Others may be more prepared to jump right in but I need some terms defined, a more specific case (steel tariffs?), who the trading partners are, who the manufactures are, who might be hurt and who might benefit and why, are you concerned about all laborers world wide, is your goal to decrease the amount of productivity, are environmental issues at play-

Give me a little more to go on about what might be good about it with some examples.

I worked for a freight company for nearly thirty years, dealing with Customs every day and reading that ****ing bible they use. Tariffs can suck my dick.
