Monday, August 20, 2018

President Donald Trump's budget director, Mick Mulvaney, is trying to use his influence to help a South Carolina business that could be badly wounded by the White House's trade policies. Mulvaney, a former South Carolina Republican congressman, has been making personal pleas to administration officials to protect the viability of Element Electronics, a television assembly plant in his old district that has said it will halt operations because of tariffs.

The feeling of schadenfreude is bringing me down. (Giggle-snort) It is too late. Many businesses become victims of tariffs as a part of a chain, and their turn in the barrel, as it were, will come later. (More giggle snort)

Mulvaney will need a really big shield once his dip•••• boss gets deep into mucking around with tariffs.

No one will protect consumers once the inflation from this imbecilic FAILING President's trade WINNING kicks in.

MAGA
