President Donald Trump lashed out at his predecessors and other countries on Saturay.
After returning to the White House from an afternoon excursion to Trump National Golf Club, the president attempted to defend his trade wars.
“When you are the piggy bank nation that foreign countries have been robbing and deceiving for years, the word tariff is a beautiful word indeed,” Trump argued, in spite of the market plunge that has resulted from his trade wars.
“Others must treat the United States fairly and with respect,” Trump demanded. “We are no longer the ‘fools’ of the past!”
(He proves he’s a fool, or far worse, by having no clue that the money government officials dole out (taken from US taxpayers, without their input, of course) to officials of other countries is a chain which insures their cooperation, and can be used to coerce them if they resist the will of the US.)
