Yes, and not attending the International Trade meeting was a smart move because the UAE, China and India are making trade agreements worth billions while the US sits on their hands watching Trump spew his hate and ignorance of any semblance of how the world works.I've viewed the thread a couple times and agree it's fascinating. I've remarked repeatedly on how interesting it was that Trump stole some cliff notes and talking points from labor unions and clobbered Hillary over the head with them, particularly on trade. He also brought in Steven Bannon, eccentric economic nationalist, to steer his campaign. These were signs he was no typical free-market champion, by any stretch of the imagination. Turns out free markets aren't interesting to most people one way or another. Conservatives just reference it as a reason to opposite government and Democrats. Most don't actually care about it beyond that.
And I think a lot of people out there view the panicking and freaking out by the political establishment and power elite as little more than a sign that Trump must be doing good work somehow or another.
Even China is getting rid of coal!
Why are Republicans so stuck in the 1950’s?
