    Default Are trade wars good and easy to win?

    1. Donald Trump tweeted on Mar 2, 2018:

    "When a country (USA) 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!"

    However, his unbridled optimism was dashed on October 11, 2018 when the words BREAKING NEWS continually flashed across the television screen with the following message:

    "Dow sheds over 800 points (-831.83), worst drop since February. Worst day for US tech stock since August 2011."

    P.S. The "storm" that hit the stock market seemed to be "tremendously big and tremendously wet".

    "Now FBI has to sieve through all tweets and rally speeches by Trump for any 'China, if you're listening' remark." -- Reedak

    "What happens when you're confronted with a politician (Trump) who is utterly without shame? You can reveal where he's lied, explain all the facts, and try as hard as you can to inoculate the public against his falsehoods. But by the time you've done that, he has already told 10 more lies." -- Paul Waldman

    2. Another day of bloodbath in the stock market, or rather, "waterbath" -- very wet, from the standpoint of water.

    Wall Street posts second day of steep losses, falling over 500 points (-545.91).

    Instead of threatening he has "a lot more to do" on China trade, Trump should realise he has "a lot more to do" on his own country's economy, otherwise Wall Street can keep falling like "Trumpty Drumpty".
