This is distinct from the TRump humor thread. If you're a triggered right winger, that wants to vent the best "libs are evil" crap you can come up with, this is the place. Not the TRump cartoon and Meme thread.

Although feel free to post memes very specific to Trump about how awesome he is, in the Trump cartoon and meme thread.

US exports to China 2017: $165.5B
US exports to China 2018: $179.6B

China exports to US 2017: $197.9B
China exports to US 2018: $193.5B

The US is the #1 individual country export destination for Chinese goods.

China is the #3 individual country export destination for US goods.

This tells me:
US putting tariffs on Chinese imports hits at their #1 destination. China putting tariffs on US imports hits at our #3 destination.

However, the value of export trade is nearly the same for both country pairs, which suggests that to absorb tariffs is a much worse pill to swallow for China than the US at this point. Also, China is a totalitarian state with a much more tenuous hold over its overshot population, where economic hardship, however temporary, can have an impactful outcome on stability.

Economists that are much smarter than you or I or Trump say it's much more questionable.

Our exports to china are not for product that are sold to their poor, nearly to the extent that china's exports to the US are consumer products sold to our working class, and poor. .

Trump just likes doing things with his power. And it gives him more material to work with for future lies about how awesome he is.

My Early predictions for 2024 I think the Trump's will not want to be accused of a Dynasty. So they will sit a few elections out before any of them enter the race.
If Lindsey Graham keeps his based Patriot appearance up, he will be next major contender. In fact, had this Lindsey ran in 2016, he would have easily beaten Trump.
Remember not every Trump supporter that voted for him in the elections. Were keen on him during the Primaries. This Lindsey graham would closed Trump out early on in the Primaries before Trump could have warmed up to all of the voters that ultimately became his loyal base.

Yes it is a crime if those "decisions" involve killing a (totally innocent and defenseless) human being. Duh.
