GOP Strategist Steve Schmidt warns: President Trump is going to wreck the economy because he is an imbecile
GOP strategist Steve Schmidt blasted Donald Trump and his commerce secretart Wilbur Ross for getting into a trade war with Peoples Republic of China and lying about it. According to Schmidt, the incompetence of Trump administration is going to devastate the American economy, for reasons that have not been explained.
Schmidt said “Maybe this will be experiential learning for the American people, as Donald Trump precipitates for no good reason a trade war that will have devastating consequences in the country, not just in the equities market but for real jobs, real people, real towns and cities in this country,” Schmidt said.
He continued “The consequences of an inept and incompetent president, whether it’s a from a national security perspective with people being killed in wars or economically, will start to come home now,”.
“I think that’s what we’re starting to see here. This is very bad news for the American people, for people who are trying to get ahead, people trying to put their kids through college. You look at the attacks on Amazon, for example. If you’re a retired teacher, if you’re a pensioner, you’re devastated by the drop in stock price caused by a political attack by the president.”
Schmidt said preident Trump does not know or understand how economy and politics worked, he said the ignorance of president will make American life worse.
He said “It’s patently obvious when you watched the news conference (Monday), you watched the president talking about the trilateral relationship with the Baltic republics, he has no idea what he’s talking about,It’s the musings of an imbecile, really.”
The Republican strategist admitted that President’s misunderstanding of trade deficits could destroy many state economies that rely on business dealings with canada.
He said “You want to talk about crashing the market, abrogate the NAFTA agreement, disrupt the trillion dollars of trade that flows across the border and this is what happens,”
“This is an incompetent president who has no idea what he’s doing, no idea what he’s talking about. The consequences of incompetent actions will be paid for by the American people.”
He concluded by saying “We’re starting to see that now, we’re starting to see this with the market reaction”
“We’re starting to see this in the bilateral China relationship, and so there are consequences for this type of action and behavior, and the American people are soon going to start paying the bill for it.” Watch the video below
