…yesterday on politics driving the tariff “proclamation.”
It is All Politics
Note, today’s announcement on tariffs was a proclamation, not even a legal document. Only words, and we know, for certainty, with this president, words can mean whatever he wants them to, and can change day to day.
The timing of the announcement is hollow as it is political.
President Trumps plans to stump in Pennsylvania’s 18th congressional district this weekend, where the Democratic candidate, Conor and Republican, Rick Saccone, both support steel tariffs. The 18th is definitely steel country.
The special election in the Penn 18th is seen as a bellwether for the November midterms and an indicator of a potential major thumping of the Republicans. – GMM
