Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, May 12, 2019

White House chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow undercut President Donald Trump's claim that China will pay for tariffs imposed by the administration on goods entering the U.S., admitting that Americans will end up footing the bill. In an interview with Fox News' Chris Wallace, Kudlow, who serves as the head of the National Economic Council, was pressed on the validity of the president's assertion. "It's not China that pays tariffs," Wallace said. "It's the American importers, the American companies that pay what in effect is a tax increase and oftentimes passes it on to U.S. consumers."

Kudlow is a Reagan Republican that is for free trade. He also believes taxes on corporations are taxes on consumers. So, you want to embrace this, you need to embrace that. Kudlow is where he is now because Trump values loyalty over competence - this is a flaw on his part. I would much rather have Pat Buchanan in charge of our trade policies - for the positive outcomes as well as being able to witness Eleanor Clift's head explode Scanner's style.

But of course.

A trade war started by a mediocre "business man". What did you think was going to happen?

Your s-hole country has a GDP per capita under $2K. The only things more embarrassing is your 55% rate of marriage to cousins and your 58% literacy rate. I think we will be just fine without your judgement on our "mediocre business man" leading the world's largest economy to unprecedented growth.

It's just TOR/SPORK using his FOURTH sock puppet as a fake-Jew.

OF COURSE he makes ---- up. LOL

He is posting as TOR right now in other threads making up more ----.

Your s-hole country has a GDP per capita under $2K.

$5,800. LOL

See? More fake ----.

I guess Canada can only get fake news.

And yes, I can see it bothers you when I called Trump a "mediocre businessman".

Here it is... repeat:

Why not start denying the sky is blue?

Sub $2,000 per the world bank. Again, seems you have trouble differentiating GDP and GDP (PPP)...might be a product of too much ------ cousin-marrying.

data.worldbank.org

By the way, you trail s-hole India by a couple hundred dollars.

IMF

World Bank

Lie Much?

Aren't you supposed to be Jewish? (fake-Jewish)

And you can't understand the concept of GDP??? LOL

And here it is AGAIN .. what bothers you so much:

Still haven't figured out what PPP means. Sad, but again, likely your inability to comprehend is tied to too many incidents of ------ cousin-marrying. Maybe in a few decades, you can catch up with India in GDP per capita. Doubtful as they seem to be against ------ so I would assume they will maintain their lead but you never know. However, I am certain there are some African nations poorer than Pakistan that would value your economic insights.

Americans are getting nailed in the Mediocre Businessman's trade wars.

Canadians are getting nailed by China's punitive diplomatic assaults. One guy is on death row and two diplomats are probably next. China's economic shunning of Canada is another beautiful story.

Yet here we have a fake-Jew zionist (TOR) who thinks Trump is NOT a "mediocre business man"?

Sad, isn't it?

I know exactly what it means.

YOU don't seem to understand what it means which is why you are pushing other garbage outdated figures from sites that came out of your Zionist behind. LOL

Right now YOU and your Canada (and the US too of course) are getting my insight. Doesn't matter if you hate it. It's here. LOL

No, clearly you haven't as it has nothing to do with the date of the figures. In the real world, you are still attempting to sniff India's --------- in the economic race. Meanwhile, China is collapsing and that won't do your s-hole country any favors given how you are so reliant on them for your meager economy.

According to Kudlow, a 25% price hike in consumer goods that Americans will pay is "worth it".

How very white of him.

I would much rather have the janitor from my local High School than either. Then your head could explode when you see a janitor was smarter than both. And as a bonus the janitor will already be there to clean up the mess.

The ignoramus in the White House thinks China pays tariffs into the Treasury, not the importers, who pass the cost along to consumers.

This is not going to end well.

And John Bolton is itching for another multi-trillion dollar war, this time with Iran.

Because he spilled the beans and messed up the plans to distract us by "secretly" attacking Venezuela.

John Bolton should be in a straight jacket in a rubber room.

Since President Trump lies most of the time, he is easy to contradict.
