That is supposed to be the point of protective tariffs.

Exactly. Instead, it’s essentially a regressive tax on the working and middle classes. The money Trump crows that China is paying into the Treasury is really coming from us, and the money he’s giving to the farmers he’s fucking over is being borrowed from China. So, we pay the tariffs AND we pay interest to China.

I’m absolutely certain that all this has been explained to him, but he’s infamously ineducable, so it doesn’t penetrate. Even if he briefly knows the truth, the wishful thinking pushes it out of the way again. I’m curious how long he actually holds onto reality before slipping back into Cloud Cuckoo Land again, or if indeed he ever really does.
