Today, Trump was at a Shell chemical plant in Pittsburgh to discuss America's energy and manufacturing revival. Here are some of the hits.

 

On the supposed benefits of natural gas over renewable energy: “When the wind stops blowing, it doesn’t make any difference does it? Unlike those big windmills that destroy everybody’s property values, kill all the birds. One day the environmentalists are going to tell us what’s going on with that. And then all of a sudden it stops. The wind and the televisions go off. And your wives and husbands say ‘Darling, I want to watch Donald Trump on television tonight. But the wind stopped blowing and I can’t watch. There’s no electricity in the house, darling.'”

 

On his pledge to salvage manufacturing jobs: “You guys, I don’t know what the hell you’re gonna do. You don’t want to make widgets, right? You don’t want to make — do you want to learn how to make a computer? A little tiny piece of stuff... You put it with those big beautiful hands of yours like… You’re gonna take these big hands, gonna take this little tiny part. You’re gonna go home, ‘Alice this is a tough job.’ Nah, you want to make steel and you want to dig coal, that’s what you want to do!”

It's more than stupidity.  He's incoherent.  Something else is going on.

I don't know what is worst. Trump saying this ill-informed nonsense or the people behind him nodding, clapping and smiling in agreement.

Trump would last about twenty minutes tops, working in a coal mine. I guess he thinks people prefer to work in industries with horrific safety and detrimental health effects records.

Trump announced new 10% tariffs on China the day after the FED cut interest rates by .25%.  How is the FED supposed to know what to do about rates when Trump is so unpredictable?  Were they supposed to anticipate his new tariffs?

 

Trump essentially wants it both ways.  He wants to increase tariffs on China in his tit-for-tat trade war but he wants the FED to bail him out of it by reducing rates so he puts public pressure on J. Powell.

It's funny that Trump is bashing the Fed for raising the interest rate. When the dark skin president was in office, here is Trump's opinion on low interest rates.

 

 

"Dark skin president"? How fucking racist are you?

Trump needs to put together some kind of agreement with China that will ease the minds of investors. It does not have to be a detailed comprehensive trade deal just one that promises there will not be a spate of new tariffs from either side. We need some protection for steel and aluminum and we need some guarantee of protection of our IP.  The details can be hammered out later. 

 

As for interest rates Trump was right, Powell should have never raised rates 50 basis points when people were concerned about a global slow down. Now they have to lower them again. Calling Powell "clueless" was not wise either. He makes the mistake of always trying to be combative.

Stone cold stupid. Talk to anyone on wall street and they will tell you investors think Trump is buffoon.

I'm an investor and I do not think that.
