"It. So these are. That's why that's why say Trump honestly believes what he says to be true. Because I don't think he knows the difference at the moment. And that's and that's the main courtesy. Okay. So what he's doing now. He's taking a massive effort at reshaping American economic Emo, foreign policy wise, it by imposing trait like tariff that making trade wars happened and has not a tiny bit of understanding a ways actually doing, like, that's a recipe for blowing up everything. Well, that's what thing as a another thing about trade wars, and think this is where it kinda Sanders, warn our line with is that tariffs are good for express purpose in this case, renegotiating trade deals. But if you have an ongoing trade war, that's obviously Daffyd country, and that's kind of where, you know, the economic protectionism comes. Because if you're trying to all right. Let's let's, let's. Let's, let's look at the trade imbalance here. So the trade the trade deficit with China in two thousand eight was north of six hundred billion dollars at the time that. But he's lying. This was from. This is from like market watch. This is not. No, no, no, no. Trumps numbers are not true. And also there's two issues here. You finish point say that the trade deficit was cut in half on their Obama because you had the great recession so naturally demand went down. There wasn't really any trade deal that was negotiated between the US and China during that time, the, the most that you got was the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which actually never came to fruition, because it was voted on. And then as soon as it was Trump game in office scrapped, but the TPP did never China was never involved in TV. So it's kinda hard to say that, that would've been packed at anymore. So right now our trade deficit with China's around three just north of, let's say about three hundred fifty billion dollars at the moment and. Terrace in Trump's mind. Seems to be the way of getting that back down to zero in maybe a surplus for the US. Why would we want that? Like why is that even goal here? The idea that, that while we want. Why would we not wanna trade deficit? Yeah. I mean, think of how much money that the US losing, all this is not even thing Trump's like stupid economic rule. That's not how it works like deficit someone and they give you a good return. Like if you go and buy an orange money, the grocery store. Yeah, there's a trade between you and the grocery store. But you've got orange is not inherently wrong for you to give money out and get goods or services and return like that's not inherent problem. And he's fixing but there's also the problem with intellectual property. That is a real, proud the biggest how do you quantify that? Here's the thing. So where do you see Trump's trade tactics here helping with the fight good question, Susan? I honestly wish I knew the answer here. I think the what Trump is trying to go. Honestly,"
