AMERICA FIRST: The President Labels Himself ‘TARIFF MAN,’ Warns Those Seeking to ‘Raid our Nation’
President Trump doubled-down on his widespread use of trade tariffs to improve the US economy and the American manufacturing base Tuesday, saying he is a “tariff man” after reaching a 90-day “truce” with China.
“I am a Tariff Man. When people or countries come in to raid the great wealth of our Nation, I want them to pay for the privilege of doing so. It will always be the best way to max out our economic power. We are right now taking in $billions in Tariffs. MAKE AMERICA RICH AGAIN,” tweeted the Commander-in-Chief.
