I find it hilarious some people go on about Trump's tariff war.

Do you even know what the tariffs are ?
Here's the EU's tariffs before and after Trump raised yours:

After

Here's yours:
Before

After

When he said everyone else's tariffs were higher, he was telling the truth.
He hasn't actually raised them by very much either.

This coming from a guy who doesn't know that clean coal is used in synthetic fuels, or that a 767 flying at 500 knots in the thick air of sea level cannot avoid a Dutch roll unless a wing breaks off.

GB and the EU are already in a recession. Tariffs are a tax that get passed down to struggling consumers. In other words, Trump created the 2nd highest tax increase right behind Reagan.

I hope you enjoy chlorinated chicken.

What part of your argument involved reading the links with the tariffs, analysing them and saying fair point, however..... Here's some food for thought.....?

I realise you don't like me ripping your lazily crafted arguments apart, but you could at least start trying to take on board some facts even if they challenge your perspective.

Btw, you're wrong on almost every point, although Germany is indeed slipping into recession the United Kingdom is not in recession.

Why would I be bothered about chlorine washed chicken? I don't eat chicken, I don't like chicken. I don't tend to buy chlorine washed salads either but they're sold here.

What's your problem?
Why do you have to keep going off topic, lying and using straw man arguments?

US tariffs were lower than others, UK was selling £99.6 billion to the USA, USA was selling £66.3 billion to the UK.

And this is Price Waterhouse Cooper predicting the UK will get 1% growth this year.

"I realise you don't like me ripping your lazily crafted arguments apart, but you could at least start trying to take on board some facts even if they challenge your perspective."

I realize it was risky to predict the month and severity of the upcoming greater depression but I know that history always repeats itself. When I saw the MIT study to back up my prediction of summer with charts and analysis, I wanted to show you merchants of doubt that there's a method to my madness.

I don't want to be the alarmist but something's gotta give. I bought a yellow vest because I know mass riots are coming to the states. P-iss off you fake Brit.

So now you can see I'm telling the truth, how about addressing the points I've made?

You make unsubstantiated claims all day long but you cannot back up your lies with facts.
Why do you do it ? Do you think you're clever ?

I post substantiated facts.
Look at the WTO and ONS data.

Well one thing's for sure. When the bottom falls out the Tea Baggers will blame Trump's crash on a MSM-RINO conspiracy.

And currently Wall St has put the brakes on to slow plummeting equities. But who can see how the "brake man" operates? Is the market prioritizing sales to the advantage of investment bankers and leaving "mom and pop's" sale to get lost in the pile until the price takes a few more big hits? Those ETFs may not do so well today.
