China Trade Discussion

In this Twitter thread, the president makes it clear that no final agreements have been reached with China. This is in direct contrast to his statement two days ago where he wrote in a way that suggested the tariff war was over.

As a result of his premature announcement late Sunday night, “stocks had rallied on Monday following a truce between U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping on their trade dispute following weekend talks in Argentina but investor optimism over a resolution faded on Tuesday.”

What is the source for the dollar amounts the president asserts?

Why does the president speak as if Democrats are the only source of opposition to his Wall? Congress has been controlled by Republicans for two years now.

Re-Tweet | Charlie Kirk | French Riots

The rhetoric used by Charlie Kirk is highly biased. Words that reflect bias are:

1. Socialist
2. Radical
3. Leftist
4. Cultural Marxism

Those are each rhetorical tools that fail to adequately describe events in any meaningful way. Taxation is not a socialist, radical, leftist or Marxist concept. Taxation is the bedrock of all civilized nations. The question – the important question – is “Who should pay what in taxes?”.

China Trade … Redux

There is no new deal with China.  Now the president is using the internet in an effort to cyber-bully them into doing what he wants.
