As you may have heard, because he’s said it a bunch of times, were Donald Trump to be elected President of the United States, his first order of business would be to “deal” with this China situation. Specifically, Trump has said he’d tell the Chinese that “If you don’t stop manipulating your currency, we’re going to put a 25 percent tax on your products that come into the US.” The Don has made the case that he’s uniquely qualified to run this country because unlike our pussy diplomats (who “went to school to learn how to be nice”), he’d “deliver to the message” to to China in away that would get them to take the threat seriously. Today during a town hall, Trump workshopped some lines and so far here’s what he’s got: “Listen you motherfuckers, we’re going to tax you 25 percent.”

And when it comes to gas prices, he’d take a similar tack with a simple “You’re not going to raise that fucking price.”

    Start saying “j” instead of “y” in words like “you” and the scale totally tips towards quaking in boots.

    We’ve devalued our currency by 11% in the last year, and tacitly caused our high gas prices. The Chinaman is not the issue here dude.

    By the way, in the 1880 – 1910 the US had a similar trade policy & while most will argue that protectionism never works, when it comes to unfair trade practices…it does work much better than just doing nothing.

    Oddly enough our dental plans don’t cover moral decay from candy ingestion so we weren’t following cocoa, but we did predict that our investors would surely count their chickens before their nest eggs hatched… and we were right. Again.

  50. Posted by GeorgeSoros | April 30, 2011 at 12:26 AM

    He’s such an idiot. China will just say, “ok, we’ll just stop importing to the US.” the government has a huge surplus and their workers are dirt poor anyway so they don’t lose much. If they complain, they just go to jail. Then they’ll just dump our treasuries and fuck us even more. Then every company in the US is fucked. Trump, you’re old and useless. You were lucky to get into Wharton and lucky to buy nyc real estate. You’re an entertainer not a businessman. And you’re a pussy.
