Donnie's Brainless Tariff Threat

On Monday, January 16th, King-elect Donnie Trump continued his bombastic ways by threatening to engage in a trade war with Germany.  Donnie believes, quite stupidly, that international trade is an act of war.  Donnie believes, quite arrogantly, that he needs to "win" anytime a trade takes place across international borders.  Donnie believes, quite imperialistically, that the Socialist Democracy of Amerika should always get the better end of any deal that involves a profit seeking company domiciled in some stinkin' foreign country.  Simply put, Donnie is a raving lunatic and exceedingly stupid when it comes to economics and the nature of foreign trade.
Here is the report, taken from CNBC, of Donnie's latest tirade, "U.S President-elect Donald Trump warned German car companies he would impose a border tax of 35 percent on vehicles imported to the U.S. market, a plan that drew sharp rebukes from Berlin and hit the automakers' shares. In an interview with German newspaper Bild, published on Monday, Trump criticized German car makers such as BMW, Daimler and Volkswagen for failing to produce more cars on U.S. soil. 'If you want to build cars in the world, then I wish you all the best. You can build cars for the United States, but for every car that comes to the USA, you will pay 35 percent tax,' Trump said in remarks translated into German. 'I would tell BMW that if you are building a factory in Mexico and plan to sell cars to the USA, without a 35 percent tax, then you can forget that,' Trump said."  Did you catch all of that?  If you did you will notice that King Donnie is also a magnificent hypocrite.
Since Donnie sees economic production as an act of war, he also believes that all SDA companies must produce all their goods exclusively on SDA soil.  Being an emissary of the imperial SDA empire, he demands that all profit seeking companies around the world that intend to sell goods to SDA citizens also produce those goods exclusively on SDA soil.  In other words, if some career politician or King from a foreign land wanted to force his profit seeking companies to produce goods in his country, Donnie would engage in war against that King in an attempt to force him and his company to produce those goods in the SDA.  All goods sold to SDA citizens must be produced in the SDA, according to King Donnie.  When the Kings of stinkin' foreign countries take the same stance as Donnie he declares economic war against them.  That is called hypocrisy, unless you happen to be the King of the biggest and baddest empire the world has ever known. 
Donnie also hates the citizens of Mexico.  He wants to make sure that their superior labor services are never utilized by any profit seeking company that desires to sell goods to SDA citizens.  Why he hates the Mexicans so much is hard to say.  Some believe he is a racist.  I do not think that is true.  I think he is simply an idiot with way too much power.  His hatred of Mexico stems from his belief that he is waging economic war against the citizens of Mexico because they are able to provide labor services for a cheaper price than SDA citizens.  Why providing labor services for a cheaper price is a justifiable reason to engage in economic warfare is something Donnie never explains. I sincerely doubt that he could explain the moral basis for his view.  The world is black and white for Donnie, just like it is for all worshipers of the Empire of the SDA.  You either serve the SDA and its interests or you are evil and worthy of death. Sometimes the death will be the result of bombs raining down from the sky and other times it will be the slow death of economic privation and starvation as King Donnie wages his economic wars around the world. 
Donnie claims to be a Christian yet he is engaging in an illegal and immoral war.  Donnie needs to live consistently with Christian principles and cease his wars of economic aggression against people he does not like simply because they live on the wrong side of a geo-political boundary.  Unless Donnie repents he will be facing the Lake of Fire in his future.  Hummm......I you think Donnie believes he can wage economic war against the Lake of Fire and cause it to cease to exist?  That wouldn't surprise me.
