Good Day World!
From what I've seen since Trump slithered into the White House, he can do just about anything and get away with it.
Up to a point.
The courts have prevented him from a number of attempts at thwarting the Constitution. But at the rate Trump is appointing a new generation of conservative judges beholden to him, that may end soon.
He's always concerned about his "base." He spends his waking hours throwing them red meat. But he just screwed them bigly with the his new 25 percent tariff on steel and aluminum coming into the country.
What does a Trump supporter drink?
If you picked B...you're right.
The Brewer's Association, based in Colorado, is warning that the price of beer will be going up. Especially for products like Coors who use aluminum cans.
In other words, Trump is screwing his own supporters with these silly-assed tariffs, but he's too stupid to realize it. Even after the Brewer's Associations stopped by Washington to have a chat with him before he raised the tariffs, it didn't make a difference.
A chain effect will now happen to small breweries and big companies, hurting the business inside and out. The majority of Republicans - including turtle-look-alike Mitch McConnell, tried to get him to back off.
Market experts warned Trump there would be a trade war if he pulled the twenty-five percent tariff bullshit on our allies. Now - big surprise - Mexico, Canada, and the European Union are all retaliating...as in a (you guessed it) a TRADE WAR.
Time for me to walk on down the road...
