Everyone Loves a Trade War

Casualties of War1

So, Trump is trying to sell his hasty tariff proclamation by playing the victim card again. I forgot that great businessmen whine about how they’re being taken advantage of on trade deals.  But he says he won’t get rid of these tariffs unless a new, fairer NAFTA deal is put together.  I dunno.  I can’t seem to figure out what his idea of fair is.  But I’m willing to bet the builders and construction companies who rely on Canadian imports for materials don’t think things are terribly fair at this point.  Did you know that 40% of frame building lumber for Texas comes from Canada? Eddie Martin from the Tilson Housing Corp. does.
