Trump just gave himself a ridiculous new nickname in bizarre Twitter tirade against China

Today, President Trump tweeted out that he was “looking forward” to meeting with the Bush family in the wake of former president George H.W. Bush’s death. The sentiment rang false given the longstanding animosity between Trump and the Bushs and seems like it was something his staff convinced him he should do to appear presidential rather than something he authentically cares about.

It didn’t take long for Trump to undermine his own conciliatory tweet by pivoting to unleash a ridiculous tweetstorm about Sino-American relations. He brought up his recent meeting with authoritarian Chinese president Xi Jinping and bragged about their negotiations even though no substantive details have yet emerged.

Trump made promises about concessions China will be making, although once again he failed to provide any real details or proof, which means he could very well be making things up out of thin air without actual agreements from the Chinese. Given his long history of bloviation and fabrication, it seems likely that nothing was actually accomplished at the meeting.

Trump then brought up his disastrous tariffs, lying per usual by pretending that tariffs are enriching the United States at the cost of other countries. In reality, tariffs are just a tax on American consumers. Companies raise prices to counterbalance the tariff and maintain their margins, and the increases are passed along to the people purchasing the products.

Historically, tariffs fail to achieve their goals and do nothing but cause economic hardship. The trade war between China and the United States caused entirely by Trump has already devastated numerous American industries. If they aren’t repealed soon, more companies will go belly up.

Trump’s claim that he is a “Tariff Man,” in which he capitalized both words for some reason, is perhaps the standout line from the laughable series of tweets. The incredibly stupid moniker has already begun to spread across Twitter, with both liberal and conservative users mocking what is quickly becoming a new nickname for our incompetent leader.

Once again, America finds itself the laughingstock of the world because of the buffoon currently squatting in the Oval Office.
