Don't jump to the conclusion that Trump is going to do the exact same thing. Remember, Donald Trump was building skyscrapers at the time so he knows full-well what happened 1st hand when Bush did it that way.

Let's be patient and see what, how, with whom, for how long and to what end he does it before we jump on forums and declare that he's an idiot and the sky is surely falling this time.

When was the last time we had a president who actually built things before taking office?

Trump built his buildings with Chinese steel, most workers at his resorts are green card, he stiffs his contractors. His advisor quit, not so much about the tariff, but he was never consulted about them, he was hired to be the economic advisor. Trump listens only to Trump. The sky is not falling, but when the economy tanks, the rich will get bailed out again and us working folks will get handed the bill like in 2008.

Honest dialog obviously can't be had with you as you're way off in the deep end on the never-Trump, false narrative. Oh well...

You have that right. Rebelrouser has drank way to much of the CNN Kool-Aid.
