“That is absolutely the lesson,” said economist Phil Levy, who worked on trade policy in the George W. Bush White House. “It is a supply chain. The administration has favored the first link over the later links in the chain. The net effect helps neither American manufacturing nor national security.”
Any competent economist knows that what Trump is doing is bad for the American economy. But there are just enough mean-spirited idiots in this country to enable him.

Two illiberals enjoying a hearty laugh seeing others suffer. Nothing to see here, move on.

So no thoughts on the actual policy that is causing the pain?

One thing you can always count on trumptards for: no opinions on policy. Politics for these guys is not about policy and what works and what doesn't; politics is a team sport, all that matters is whether the team they are rooting for wins.

It's as if the economic pain people feel has nothing to do with the policy of the administration. Only the bad thoughts from the perceived enemies cause pain.

Trumptards probably think Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell are now liberals, because they are breaking with Trump on the tariff policy.

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/paul-ryan-breaks-with-trump-on-tariffs/ wrote:"I disagree with this decision. Instead of addressing the real problems in the international trade of these products, today's action targets America's allies when we should be working with them to address the unfair trading practices of countries like China," Ryan said. "There are better ways to help American workers and consumers. I intend to keep working with the president on those better options."

https://www.cnn.com/2018/06/01/politics/mcconnell-trump-tariffs/index.html wrote:"I hope we pull back from the brink here because these tariffs will not be good for the economy, and I worry that it will slow, if not impeded significantly, the progress we were making economically for the country," he said.
