Gauntlet, thrown.

The main issue is joined and the globalist spokeslugs are howling.  Mostly senators, but a few congresslugs also. You can tell by their concern for every other country but this one.

Steel and aluminum tariffs.

“Trump tweeted Thursday that many U.S industries, including steel and aluminum “have been decimated by decades of unfair trade and bad policy with countries from around the world. We must not let our country, companies and workers be taken advantage of any longer. We want free, fair and SMART TRADE!”   CBS News

I hear no howling from the working class.

This is the centerpoint to why the opposition to Trump is so fierce, it is a threatened shift in trillions of  dollars of value in investment portfolios. The US was to be hollowed out to let the rest of the world industrialize. Some of us disagree with that plan.

Now it gets interesting. I hope the Secret Service is loyal and competent. Trump just threw the gauntlet down with the donor class, which means he has some serious political capital coming in the IG report.

By the way, we have a new trade team working for us…

    Andbut don’t forget NIMBY regarding all the waste and strip mining and general desecration of (our precious part of) mother gaia.
