    Well there goes Christmas.

    Gonna hurt the market.

    This is the tariffs that Trump held off on because it was gonna kick off inflation.

    But that just took a back seat so we can have a trade war with China and take it in the pocketbook.

    The chosen one had a vision.

    Also—as any capitalist can tell you, as the price of a product or commodity goes up, demand goes down. Econ 101 lol.

    This will hurt China more than us because there are other suppliers for most of it. China is definitely voting democrat in 2020.

    Abortion rights dogma can obscure human reason & harden the human heart so much that the same person who feels
    empathy for animal suffering can lack compassion for unborn children who experience lethal violence and excruciating
    pain in abortion.

    Unborn animals are protected in their nesting places, humans are not. To abort something is to end something
    which has begun. To abort life is to end it.

    I'd pay 3 times what I pay now for the goods that I buy, effective immediately, if it helps my country win a trade war.
