It looks like Donald Trump is launching a full-blown trade war. Not to worry though. According to the president, a trade war is “easy to win.”
When a country is losing many billions of dollars on trade with virtually every country it does business with, trade wars are good, and easy to win. Example, when we are down $100 billion with a certain country and they get cute, don’t trade anymore-we win big. It’s easy!”
Peter Schiff has a little different take. He said in his podcast last week winning a trade war isn’t so easy. In fact, America can’t do it.
