There have been a couple editorials recently defending Trump saying in effect things haven’t been as bad as everyone predicted, therefore things are pretty good.
One thing talked about how the financial impact of the tariffs is not as great as they’re made out to be. The argument: the tariffs will amount to about the same dollar amount as the taxcut and no one noticed that.
So A. we’re admitting the tax cuts weren’t that big and B. we’re admitting any money we did save thanks to the tax cuts will go to pay for tariffs. Woo hoo! All this winning!
But hey, he hasn’t tanked the planet’s economy yet.
