It occurs to me that the people who dislike Trump the most seem to reason the same way he does.

I’m not in the mood to run down a point by point list of issues, in that I’m not a Trump supporter, just more of an observer.

But what I will say is that progressive Democrats have been criticizing the trade agreements for the same reasons Trump is criticizing about them, and for decades. And they have been suggesting the same solutions (tariffs) that Trump has been suggesting…..and for decades.

But, now that suddenly a Republican is agreeing with them……….the same solutions that they themselves supported are now “stupid” and “won’t work.”

This is all politics as usual. One candidate is YOUR candidate, and the other one is made out to be a demon from hell.

It’s specious reasoning at best.
