Blaming the NRA for the Parkland shooting is like blaming McDonald’s for obesity. Or Ford for car accidents. Or alcohol for drunk driving deaths. If you’re going to blame someone, get to the REAL issue and stop blaming people who had nothing to do with it. Talking about the walkout.
David Fischer, CEO of Landmark Capital, talks Trump’s tariffs and trade talks. Trump is making good on another campaign promise. The trade deficit is growing. We have a $300 billion trade deficit with China.
3 countries have threatened to retaliate in response to Trump’s tariffs. Europe, UK, and China.
