President Trump launched Tariff War 2.0 yesterday. And we haven’t even wrapped up Trade War 1 yet.
The president shocked markets when he announced a 5% tariff on all Mexican products in an effort to force Mexico to do more to stop the flow of illegal immigration into the US. In this episode of the Friday Gold Wrap, host Mike Maharrey gives you the details and talks about the impact of these new tariffs on the markets. He also discusses what the bond market is telling us about a looming recession, some interesting news out of Russia, and the latest goings-on in the silver market.
Immigration policy is one of the biggest issues facing America right now. It’s also one of the most contentious. Should the US build a wall along the Mexican border? Are there other immigration policy reforms the US should consider? And why does it even matter?
Mike Maharrey explores the immigration issue with journalist Ryan Girdusky in this episode of It’s Your Dime. They also talk politics, discussing the midterm elections and Trump’s prospects for 2020.
