Has anyone else noticed how the Neoliberal press always raises the possibility of financial consequences whenever a government attempts to defend its borders ? Like they believe everyone’s as singular minded and selfish as they are and would gladly see their country swamped than pay a few more cents for a beer.

Eh, not a big fan of this tariff game. You want American businesses to have to charge more for their products because they have to spend more on American produced primary industries?
