White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders ends a news conference Wednesday after telling reporters that in a reversal from earlier stated policy, exemptions to planned steel and aluminum tariffs would be made on a “case-by-case” and “country-by-country” basis.

The White House said Wednesday that Mexico, Canada and other countries may be spared from President Donald Trump's planned steel and aluminum tariffs under national-security "carve-outs."

Trump has no clue what he really wants. He had a meeting with steel execs who whispered sweet nothings into his ear as well as probably reminding him of a stupid campaign promise and voila, we get tariffs across the board at a rate even his own advocates of the measure feel was too high.
...
Now, after sharp criticism and information highlighting the insanity of this considering our two neighbors, we have the potential for carve-outs for Canada and Mexico and ... well, we'll see what else he realizes was stupid. The guy really can't govern and is more a train wreck than anything. No wonder his administration has had more exits than any other in recent history. People realize how stupid it is to work in such a chaotic environment.

Thoughtless Donnie is at it again. No knowledge, no planning, no policy, just impulsive and kneejerk proclamations which he has to walk back when his handlers tell him, "No."

"A possible U.S. trade war with China could pose immediate and long-term risks to shipments of soybeans, the second-most-valuable American crop, as competitors like Brazil would stand to gain more control over the market.' There is your "Thank you" for your vote in the last election, Arkansas farmers. You deserve it good and hard.
