To everyone touting Trump’s handling of the economy
His tariffs increased the CPI to the equivalent of the largest tax increase in decades, costing American consumers the equivalent of $4 billion a month. They also also cost us 50% of agriculture export to China resulting in a net loss of $10 billion, and a 10% in-product loss globally.
He cost the American stock market $5 TRILLION in capitalization, for comparison that’s nearly a tenth of the total market cap for the entire planet.
He’s also increased the trade deficit to the highest its been post Bush, which was one of his biggest talking points during his election campaign.
All of this by the way is data from Goldman Sachs, the Deutsche Bank, and right wing think tanks, so you can’t even call “leftist propaganda” on it.
So, what exactly did he do to help the economy?
