I can understand average people don't have economics knowledge to make judgement. I don't understand the first businessman, whose business suffers from the trade war, reached such conclusion, clearly with inadequate economic common sense.

this interview illustrates the cognitive dissonance of trump supporters so well... two business owners whose businesses are being negatively impacted by trump policies but are nevertheless still supporting him because... of his business acumen? like when he declared bankruptcy (multiple times)? y'all should lay off the propaganda and realize that "shaking up the political system" doesn't have to mean destroying the country

He described tRump as a leader and I just turned it off. Get more credible people to interview.
