Trump’s trade war mania panned

Trump’s proposed tariffs will lead to ‘deep recession’, say World Trade Organisation

The First Bozo is a total idiot.

The director-general of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) is urging President Donald Trump not impose steep tariffs on aluminium and steel exports, saying that doing so could lead the world into a “deep recession”.

“An eye for an eye will leave us all blind, and the world in deep recession,” Director-General Roberto Azevedo told members of his organisation Monday. We “must make every effort to avoid the fall of the first dominoes.”

The warning follows less than a week after Mr Trump shocked global markets by saying he wants to impose a 10 per cent tax on aluminium exports, and a 25 per cent tariff on steel imports. That announcement was met with swift threats from the international community, including key allies like the European Union and Canada, which pledged to retaliate if the American president makes good on his plan.

Is there a politician on the planet who cares about workers and consumers? Probably not. Certainly not Trump. All he cares about is ratings. And his are rock bottom, unlikely to be be pulled up by his latest asinine shenanigan.

We live in a time when one of the world’s most powerful countries, till now, is governed by a petulant man-child, an incompetent twit who couldn’t even run his own business, let alone an entire nation. Trump’s stupidity is not being helped by pledges of retaliation.

One would think other nations had leaders more capable of thought and consideration. Apparently one would be wrong. It’s tit for tat because that’s the way Ogre Trump wants it. Why on earth would they want to be ruled by the tantrums of a child?
