"I will start working when my coffee does."-Anonymous
As my morning cup of coffee chased away last nights cobwebs, I was amazed at the power of an Internet tweet.
Even though I was aware of weaponized tweets for years, I never suspected Twitter would end up becoming a platform for Trump to dismantle democracy.
His latest thunderous tweet has knocked the shit out of Wall Street after he announced increased tariffs against China. China's response was to pull out of a scheduled meeting Wednesday to attend trade talks.
Meanwhile, Wall Street reeled yesterday when the Dow opened up losing 450 points and rode in the red the rest of the day.
Think about that for a moment.
Trump's tweet not only shit on our stock market, but stocks worldwide were affected as other major economies responded to the turmoil he created with his surprise early morning tweet, when he announced increased tariffs on almost all of China's imported goods starting this Friday.
It's ironic that Trump is his own worst enemy. Instead of sticking with positive messages like the healthy economy, he elects to cause chaos in America, and the rest of the world, with a simple-minded approach to negotiating...bully, bully, and bully.
Of course, the orange asshole ignores advice from America's intelligence communities, and even his own advisers (really just puppets in positions of power).
The combination has been disastrous thus far after two years of Trump's regime.
His twitter platform has launched countless lies and conspiracies. He's further divided Americans by attacking the very values we cherish, and the soul of a free nation.
Time for me to walk on down the road...
