    Mnuchin on CNBC today

    I'm more convinced than ever the administration has no clue what they're doing.

    https://www.cnbc.com/2018/04/06/mnuc...trade-war.html


    Our objective is still not to be in a trade war with [China]," Mnuchin said on CNBC's "Power Lunch." "I'm cautiously optimistic that we will be able to work this out."

    But, he added, "there is the potential of a trade war."

    Mnuchin said the U.S. is in "communications" with China, but he didn't want to comment on the progress of the talks.

    "Right now we have initiated a plan. The tariffs will take some period of time to go into effect. There will be public comment, while we're in the period before the tariffs go on. We'll continue to have discussions," he said. "The president wants reciprocal trade."

    The interview is alarming, because they were actually asking tough questions and Mnuchin didn't seem prepared to answer, he just kept dodging and clarifying what he didn't ​say.

    Video at the link.

    Im going to wait until Congress comes back from vacation to gauge where the US is on this "trade war".

    There are too many voices in the same administration saying too many crazy things.

    Until then it is total confusion.

    Mnuchin and Kudlow seem about as competent as Laurel and Hardy.

    Scary, huh?

    I have to wonder what kinds of conversations he has with his "friends" at Mar a Lago about this. One could make quite a bit of money off playing the Trump card and I would guess Trump couldn't resist the ass kissing and accolades he would get by letting a select few in on who's on next week's winners and losers list.

    I was wondering about that. Not too hard to gain friends and influence with the wild swings of the stock market lately. Stock drops like a rock one week and goes back up the next. Somebody is making money out there on these dips. In fact I bet massive amounts of money is being made...

    So, could the SEC depose Trump in a case against his cronies for insider trading?

    With Trump at the helm, they'd give the Three Stooges a run for the money.

    I imagine Mueller will get the first shot.

    Not sure why. Does this relate in some way to the Russia investigation?

    If nobody squeals it would be hard to prove.

    I'm a fan of this and would like to see it in every state and for every elected office.
