Who was he talking to when he looked up? I talk to God that way (when no one's looking). Anyway he's in good company, Harry Potter was the Chosen One, Luke Skywalker - Chosen One, Jim Jones - Chosen One.

The "chosen one" line was clearly a joke.

What should be more scary is his belief that "this is not my trade war"?

It's not his trade war in the same sense that "you didn't build that".
Except, it is his trade war. He imposed tariffs via Executive Order. this falls squarely on his shoulders.

Here's his own statement on the steel/aluminum tariffs.
In the exercise of these authorities, I have decided to adjust the imports of steel articles by imposing a 25 percent ad valorem tariff on steel articles, as defined below, imported from all countries except Canada and Mexico.

And remember...
trade wars are good, and easy to win

Oh please. You now no longer get even a scintilla of credibility if you can't understand this.

This isn't hyperbole, this isn't messianic delusion, this isn't "whack a mole nuts," this is a President being presidential. Absolutely along the same lines as Lincoln or FDR or whomever when a situation NOT of their choosing was thrust upon them. Want to argue that the situation was of their choosing (in part or in full), then fire away. Otherwise, this post of yours is just silly. And that's giving it too much credit.

But it's not a complete loss. Whatever credibility you lost was offset by gaining full credit for silly trolling. So, winning!

He started it, therefore it is his? Or, he’s the only one to fight back in a meaningful way?
No, he imposed the tariffs. Therefore it is his.

"fighting back", the validity of tariffs working, China's issues, etc. are all legitimate concerns and something he wants to see fixed. His solution is tariffs and solely come from him.

My point is that we were already in a trade war before he took office. We were just fighting to limit damages instead of to end the war

Chris, c'mon. This view is technically correct, but also very limited in scope. The tariffs may be a "problem," but they are part of a much bigger, much older problem.

I'm in agreement with TP:

I have yet to hear an explanation of why it's horrible for the US to have tariffs, but completely appropriate for just about every other country?

Because, they say, no other president did it, and it hurts us (for a while). Of course, the trade wars waged on us we were not fighting back on hurt us, too, but they don't care because Orangemanbad.

Chris seems to be when he says that the trade war is Trump's, not the other countries that were attacking us before he took office fault.
It's Trump's because he imposed the tariffs unilaterally via EO, in accordance with the law that states the President may impose tariffs.

The level of tit-for-tat tariffs, the crony exclusion process, tariffs upwards of 25%, etc. is not what we had before. Those are the direct result of Trump believing he could fix a hole in the wall with a sledgehammer.

But hey, "trade wars are good and easy to win". Should be over soon.


No one is arguing "why it's horrible for the US to have tariffs", as I said.
