Remember the tax cuts as the Republicans savior to the American people?
Few American’s have ‘felt’ the good form the cuts…..
Donald Trump is jumping into a trade ‘war’ with China….
Almost EVEWRTHING me and wife by in the stores are’made in China’…..
There are a LOt of piece’s of real estate in this country that Chinese money is behind….
Farmers in the Midwest who thought Donald Trump had their backs are now losing sleep because of the guy telling them they will have to suffer some ‘pain’ while he tries to game China on trade….
But Donald Trump goes with his ‘gut’ (Which ain’t so small)
So he’s all over the media scaring people with his trade ‘war’….
Not something his adopted party lawmakers are at ALL happy with….
