trump 0 / THE WORLD WON.

And trump is winning. Left out of the article is most of the trade deals made by Obama, bush and clinton, such as NAFTA has the USA removing trade barriers and tariffs but the other countries keep their tariffs and barriers. Still, Trump suggested from G7,the concept of actual free trade, complete removal of all barriers, subsidies and tariffs and the parasite politicians world wide balked or pretend he didn't say it. Bottom line is other countries don't want actual free trade, trump is along to do it but since no other nation's political class is willing to do free trade, they will have to deal with getting back the trade barriers they themselves refuse to give up

Trade barriers like subsidizing farmers?

Andrew, well said.

Strangerland, tell me of some agricultural countries that do not subsidize their farmers? Would you like to start with Japan?

"trump 0 / THE WORLD WON." No way! The game has just started and Trump will win on behalf of the American people for fair trade.

Trump holds the winning card and that card is control of imports into the US. American exports to China are negligible compared to what China exports to the US. China will lose, America will win.

I was pointing out that Trump and his worshippers are calling for countries to drop trade barriers, while America has trade barriers. Hypocritical much? Whether or not other countries subsidize their farmers is irrelevant to the point I was making.

"Trade barriers like subsidizing farmers?" A good point.

"Whether or not other countries subsidize their farmers is irrelevant to the point I was making."

Strangerland, would you say that again!

The current president of the United States of America (USA) is on a massive ego trip which will further damage the USA. Donald J. Trump continues to be the biggest threat to U.S. national security.

The current president of the United States of America (USA) is on a massive ego trip which will further damage the USA. Donald J. Trump continues to be the biggest threat to U.S. national security."

Only a few Trump haters will agree with the above statement.

President Trump has increased employment, increased wages, factories opening. America is on a roll!

Trump is the greatest supporter of US military and America's national security since the presidency of Ronald Reagan.

The truth is the truth.

US unemployment rate just went up from 3.8 to 4.0
