President Trump is definitely a demagogue, a populist, and not a great extemporaneous speaker, just to mention few of his more conspicuous flaws. However, I was going along because "it's the economy stupid"
Now that has changed. He wants to impose big tariffs on imported aluminum and steel. I am sure this is very pleasing to his base and few business people. But this decision has the potential to bring the world economy into a recession. I thought Republican were in favor of free trade, competition and business friendly policies. I certainly welcome the opinion of his supporters to clarify this flagrant inconsistency that is being criticized by both sides of the political spectrum.
