No matter what though, he'll be worse than Obama on that, Obama got his in his second month, Trump already missed that.

I hope someone tweeted that to him haha

Well, the Chump has reinstated the steel and aluminium tarrifs on Europe and others. Guessing the price of orange juice, Bourbon and a few other things will go up as retaliation starts. Guessing some American manufacturers will have to up their prices as the cost of imported special alloys also goes up - that's going to hit the military industries and budget if what I have heard is correct.

Also going to make the Brexiteers even more unhappy, May was relying on trade with America to balance things out initially. But, with "friends" like Trump commercial and economic enemies are redundant. This has the potential to make everyone unhappy.
Tomorrow is precious, don't ruin it by fouling up today.

Gasoline already went back up to $3.00 a gallon. During Obama, the price was going down. And got very close to the point before the prices started to spike upwards.

Check how much if that is an increase in tax to make up for the lowered sales due to higher prices of all goods.

If it follows normal patterns gas, tobacco and booze will get quite pricey. Everyone needs the first and I would take a guess that Chump's base use a lot of the other two. Word is that the EU intends to hit goods that come from Chump's strongest Republican states - Bourbon, Harlies etc.

EU starts retaliation process against U.S. tariffs
[...]
The 10-page list of products the EU may subject to tariffs ranges from rice to orange juice, make-up, motorcycles, motor boats and stainless sinks. It also includes many metals products for use in construction and industry.
[...]
Trump has ordered Ross to discuss “horrific” EU trade tariffs and barriers with Brussels and has also threatened to hit EU cars.

It's gonna be tit-for-fucking-tat with the small people suffering. Pity there is no way to freeze Trump's assets over here as a beligrrent, and probably dishonest, enemy of the state - treat him like we treat his Russian friends.

Tomorrow is precious, don't ruin it by fouling up today.

We bought a piece of tubing yesterday that had nearly doubled in cost compared to a few months ago due to "tariffs." It's a fucking joke. To add insult to injury the bastards charged a cut fee when they had the right size and length sitting on the rack!

China said, so the news said, they are going to buy more American stuff.
If your life is a leaf
That the seasons tear off and condemn
They will bind you with love
But you'll still drop off just the same.

So, in the past week, president Fuckstick has been spitting on all of our oldest friends and allies while licking the ass of some of the worst people on earth. He lauds and seeks the approval of authoritarian tyrants like Kim Jong Un, Rodrigo Duterte, and his personal man-crush, Vladimir Putin and shits on our G7 partners.

He yelled at Canada, for Crissakes. Who's less offensive than Canada?

Every day, I wake up and take the first minute to anticipate that he'll finally be gone. That the shoe will have dropped and he's being impeached followed by indictment and jail...but, no. After that minute, I turn on the news and he's still in charge, still being protected by the GOP leaders and still being supported by his braindead base who call his lunatic administration "making America great again." He's a liar, a cheat, a conman, and a hugely corrupt scumbag. Apparently, these are the qualifications one needs to hold the most powerful position in the world.

The Republican party has lost its mind.

Fuck me.
