Yawn.

It's only 'cuz of oil and gas. Come up with something that's meaningful to US Americans and maybe I'll believe things are (getting) better.

It's because chump's trade war is damaging trade, dumbass. When you tax american importers more, they import less. Exports are also down, imports are just down more. This is not a good thing.

Are you really so stupid that you can't grasp that taxing american importers lowers imports?

Yet somehow we have a robust economy. And a president who has made addressing chronic trade deficits a campaign issue. And he's delivered with the new Canada Messico deal.

You can have the weeds all to yourself this time. I'm off to South Lake Tahoe to celebrate past presidents.
