“But All Trump knows how to play is chicken.”
I understand that many people have a low opinion of Trump’s skills. And they may be right.
But Wilbur Ross and Peter Navarro are very, very smart men; I’ve been listening to their interviews for over a decade. Navarro has made trade inequity his life’s academic work, and Wilbur Ross has seen all this first hand has a businessman.
And they’ve been given free rein on this one.
So, I really don’t care if its Trump’s idea to create a negotiation point, or whether it’s Ross and Navarro’s. It’s the right thing to do, long term, for the economy.
So all they have to do is make him think he won, and then simply join forces to rob the US blind while Trump is busy celebrating.
