  1. I’m definitely a bit high right now, but I can see path here where Trump is setting the Chinese up for alleged interference in 2020 to invalidate the election. He could go all in on a trade war with China, and then blame the Chinese for meddling in the election to get someone more willing give them a deal. It’s a paranoid thought, but it makes more sense than I’d like.

    • Nope, not paranoid. Entirely possible. trump is laying the foundation to fight the election results via numerous narratives.

    The stupid FED can’t get inflation to 2%. So Trump has to handle that too. LOL × 125%

    • Deal will be made on the eve of the 2020 Election.

      • Why would the Chinese do that given Trump’s lack of credibility?

          These folks aren’t that stupid. I mean, the hold 1.13 T of treasuries. They are obdurate and proud. I think they will play Turdwattles like he’s played others.

  3. When he didn’t study history (or anything substantive), one of the things Putin’s puppet you didn’t learn is Smoot-Hawley. America’s chaos and failures are Russia’s wins.

  4. Haven\t heard much lately from Mitch. Could he be starting to realize what an idiot Trump is and the long term damage he’s doing to the Republican Party?
