Donald Trump promised that his tax cuts for the rich and his trade wars would translate into “bigly” jobs and a flush economy. As it turns out, all of the economists who know far more about these things were right and Trump was wrong. Who could’ve guessed?
Not only will Trump’s massive tax cuts for the wealthy raise the deficit by at least $1 trillion by 2020, according to the Congressional Budget Office, his trade wars are already costing Americans jobs. Harley-Davidson announced on Tuesday that it would be shipping a major portion of their manufacturing overseas thanks to the rising costs of Trump’s tariff policies, and the president is furious at how bad this makes him look.
He’s been warned several times about calling out individual businesses on Twitter as president, yet he continues to do so, telling his supporters not to buy Harley-Davidson’s products because of their defiance. Trump may soon find out that, while he brags that he has the biker community’s support, there’s one thing bikers love more than any president and that’s their Harleys.
The truth is that Trump has no idea what he’s doing and his tough talk on trade, taxes, and punishing businesses isn’t helping. In fact, this nonsense he pulls on Twitter and the policies he’s backed have hurt Americans, and the effects have only just begun.
Twitter was not pleased with Trump’s ranting. See some of their comments below:
