And the utterly predictable blinking begins...

True to form Trump is, once again, blinking, flip flopping or whatever you want to call it on tariffs. Did he see his falling approval numbers? Did he see his falling "good for the economy" numbers? Did he see that a plurality of Texans won't vote for him? Or is he still negotiating with himself again?

Apparently it is none of the above...no the reason given is utterly freaking priceless!!

Trump: U.S. agreed to delay hiking tariffs on some Chinese goods

Trump said the postponement came “at the request of the Vice Premier of China, Liu He, and due to the fact that the People’s Republic of China will be celebrating their 70th Anniversary.”
:killingme:killingme:killingme:killingme:killingme:killingme:killingme:killingme:killingme

When you don't know what you are doing, just make crap up!! Trump know 35% of the US population believes absolutely anything he says.

You people are mentally ill. Why is it so horrifically tragic for a President to reconsider or renegotiate?

I can't wait for election day 2020. I really need psychos like you to spontaneously combust.

He'll stop the trade-war 3 quarters before the election. The bump in GDP from cheap crap flowing back across our borders will keep growth above 3% and he will rightfully point to his skill at managing the economy 'like nobody else ever' in the weeks prior to the election. Maybe he'll cut unemployment insurance to boot and use that to reduce the unemployment rate to record low levels.

And, now for the rest of the story:

China Eases Tariffs on Some U.S. Products Ahead of Next Month’s Trade Talks
Posted 4:33 AM, September 11, 2019, by Associated Press, Updated at 04:37AM, September 11, 2019

China on Wednesday announced it will exempt American industrial grease and some other imports from tariff hikes in a trade war with Washington but kept in place penalties on soybeans and other major U.S. exports ahead of negotiations next month.

The move applies to raw materials for farmers and factories, suggesting Beijing wants to limit damage to its slowing economy from the fight with President Donald Trump over trade and technology.
So, China is easing their tariffs, and in response Trump is easing OUR tariffs....and Tranny thinks this is a BAD thing?

That's something Democrats do. If Trump tries it they will hypocritically but rightfully nail him to the wall.
