      This is just a truce to a matter started by Trump. Once again, nothing done..kinda like NK...it's an agreement to discuss maybe making an agreement. Can we wait to see how it truly works out until we give Trump some medal again?

      Maybe after the election, Trump will make a fantastic deal with EU. It will be great. Maybe he's kicking the can down the road till after the election? You don't know, I don't know. he probably doesn't even know.

        Well , wouldn't it be great iiiiif someone else had made these changes that have immediately affected  the US economy  as it undeniably has , say in the last thirty years or so ?   I often wonder how liberals have been just A okay with the offsided tariffs , trade deals , Nafta like disasters over the last decades and now that someone's actually changing the abuses by foreign governments , Now it becomes a priority to the left that they actually work in our favor ?

        There you are , late to the party again .

          Um..huh..well...like I said, we will see if anything comes of this or if we end up in a worse situation. Nothing has happened.

          You insist I'm liberal cause I don't like Trump and that I think just as some certain group does on every subject. Maybe it's a reflection

            "Wait and see ?"     That is the point I just made .  That's just the strategy of the left .......Your senate , your presidents , even your majorities .    Of course entitlement spending is always your priority . Health care, education , internal US artsy craftsy grants and governing ?

              I'm not even sure why I bother. My senate, my presidents, entitlement spending, what does any of this have to do with the subject you brought up...later.

      I think this is an interesting development. If Trump has been using American might to create leverage for himself to renegotiate our trade deals even though the short-term effects might be negative, I'd have to give him significant credit for that.

      After all, America can stand to pay tariffs longer than Europe can. And certainly, it hurts China way more than it hurts us to tax Chinese goods coming into the US as opposed to China taxing American goods going into China. China has more to lose in that trade war than we do.

    I find it interesting that those who shout 'the sky is falling' at the outset now, as things move toward a possible desired outcome turn about to a 'let's wait and see' stance.

        Well, when the desired outcome is more reasons to be negative it all makes sense.

          You know , At least liberals are finally admitting their overall socialist agendas that they've denied for the last forty years or more . Since at least  the early eighties  the Cuomo's , Feinstein , Carter , all of the liberal politicians  claimed "No democrats don't want socialism " ...........?

          It's far easier at this point to call out their overall hypocrisies .

            At least Trumpians are admitting they can't hold a conversation about any topic at hand. It's useless..you're too far gone into the nether regions of the rantings of an orange man.

                  As Trump smiles .

                  Admit it , Trump Derangement is clouding your sky.

    So much for deep debating with you.  Do you know what a tariff actually is ? What's that old saying ?

      You tell me all the good things about Obama, since I'm a liberal, and I'll tell you some good things about Trump, as far as policy. I can play the same games. I never once see you actually address the subject at hand.

      I don't run with dogs by the way...you do?

    Imagine if fairly equally valued economies could eliminate tariffs ?
    The US and Canada for one.   America , because of our healthy ,robust and incredibly large capitalist economy can't likely lose.

    ##Headline;  EU Caves to US Pressured Trade Deals ##

    Yesterday the leader of the EU made agreements in favorable conditions towards Trump trade negotiations . Touting major concessions by the EU.
    " A big deal for free and fairer Trade "

    Liberals ; Not one shot fired !

      What's all this premature etrumpulation? Hold up ahorse, you're letting the cart get ahead of you.

      ---"Bremmer said we need to see if policies actually get implemented."It reminds me of what happened after the Singapore meeting between Kim Jong Un and Trump. It sounded great. There was a deal. There wasn't anything concrete in the deal. We no longer talked about fighting each other, but in reality, U.S. policy and North Korean policy hasn't actually changed that much. That's exactly what we're seeing right here," Bremmer said.

      And Ahorse, did I see you disparage someone on another forum for name calling?

        Name calling ,you mean  like........ "liberals" ? Today the new numbers come out for the GDP ?    Are you ready ..........or will you go along with your buddy Jake?

        They're fixed ?

          I refer to some of your past posts....And why is name calling OK for our President but not the people? When all else fails just change the subject..smh.

            I do despise all that the new democratic party has allowed itself to morph into , if that's what your talking about "name calling " .  So yea , I call 'that' out like it is.

            Are you going all sanctimonious on us about so called "name calling " because as a supporter of liberal ideologies you're takin a huge high dive leap into  a really shallow pool of  hypocrisy. But I suspect you know that .

            I don't call out individuals by name , I do however call out a particular  ideology that  shows nothing if not how to demean their opposition expertly . That the liberal party , as I've said before , has approximately six names they use constantly to define conservatism
            -Racists
            -Bigots
            -Ignorant
            -Misogynists
            -Nazi
            -KKK

            You will hardly ever get into a political debate without one of the above being thrown into the equation by the left , new left , old left , intellectual left or not . Name calling , categorizing , negativity and discord , Because certainly Alinskyism has its core definition deep into the DNA of this new left.

            Sad part is ,  THAT is where the left will always default to when pointed towards  the solutions of our societal problems  by anyone outside of their minisculely prescribed mindset  and yes I do know why .

            Because for all of the left's deep devotional connections to the term so oft used today , "Social Justice "    this new left is no more about improving on the internal betterment of America than a pharmacist is about actually curing a disease .

            The left wants America torn from within or from without , no matter which to them and  Why ?      Because the intervention of anarchy is the the ultimate precursor to the inevitable dreamworld  of this  left -More government !

            The left simply wants that which is the ultimate enemy of liberty itself , to the left the ultimate archenemy of freedom from tyranny -becomes  tyranny itself.   And , because to the weakness of the left , even tyranny is better than self supporting freedom , liberty and the capitalism ,all of these the very foundation of the American way of life .

              But...it's ok for the President to name call, deliberately mislead, call the press the enemy of the people, try to stifle free press, etc,

              You have no standing when you state that the morals of the President don't matter. This is the political environment you are inviting. But then you seem upset when the same tactics are thrown back at you.

              Did you even look at the link showing all the nasty names Trump has called Americans?

              Who is "the left" not me.

              "The left wants America torn from within or from without , no matter which to them and  Why ? 

              Wasn't it many Trump voters that stated they were blowing up the system by voting for him? It seems that if anyone wants anarchy it is them.

              At any rate, I think you need to take a step back from Hannity and Limbaugh and all that. Just like some get too engrossed in MSNBC ya know? Smell the roses and focus more on you.

              I'm not really into these little spats so much anymore. It was funny.

    Well Mr. "I Have No Party "That rant was cute .

    Trump and his following can be defined as exactly the political result of two things ;

    One , Mainstreet  US's voters response to the most corrupt socialist president [Obama ]that democrats have ever elected in America and  with that ,the most corrupted party election cycle ever to be defined in our  voting republic since the first US election cycle .

    And Two , While democrats for decades called what needed  happening in Washington DC as a draining a swamp ,  Trump voters perhaps most likely  from the right said " This Is our Chance"
    and actually did something about that ,   You're welcome !

    "Morals of the president don't matter "?,    Trump is an duly elected  lightning rod for the mega storm  of Political Correctness lighting up the democratic skies for the last two decades .    That cycle of BS has defined every legislative act in congress and out of the white house for over two terms ........Done !

    "All the nasty names Trump has called ........"   What has the  American left become ? Some kind of a glorified  safety zone society that can't handle a few names now and again ?
    I don't know , Ask the "Deplorables "

    "Step back from Hannity and Limbaugh", Trump supporters don't listen to these two all that much and I don't at all , What does that leave you with ?........Ohhhh scary huh ?

    The Orange beast Trump finally had to confronted by the world and Trudeau is no push over.

    I already warned, that if tariffs stood the way they were. US would have been driven into depression faster than anything. The puppeteers would not want that yet. They still have to sell off Government buildings and property to foreign investors, steal more pensions before they collapse everything.
