Donald Trump calls for a 25% tariff on Chinese products
Donald Trump called for a 25% tariff on Chinese products on the Michael Savage radio show last night and in turn received Savage's endorsement for President:
In the interview, Trump comes off as forceful and competent. If he discovers the scaled tariff and campaigns upon a plan to balance budgets and trade at the same time, he could win the election and then fix the American economy.

WE NEED TO PUT A 25% TARIFF ON CHINESE GOODS TO JUMPSTART OUR INDUSTRIES ONCE AGAIN. WE NEED TO SERIOUSLY BE RID OF MR. OBUTTHEAD,OBATOMY,OBAMAREXIC ONCE AND FOR ALL. HE IS TRULY ALONG WITH JUST ABOUT ALL OF THE DEMOCRATS AN ENEMY OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. I BELIEVE HE WAS NOT BORN IN THIS COUNTRY. MR. TRUMP, DO YOU REMEMBER THE MOVIE STARRING FRANK SINATRA CALLED " THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE" WELL FICTION HAS JUST TURNED TO REAL LIFE. WE HAVE THE MANCHURIAN PRESIDENT FOR REAL. A MAN WHO IS ANTI-ISRAEL FOR SURE. HE IS ANTI-AMERICAN IN HIS APPROACH TO FIXING OUR ECONOMY. HE WOULD RATHER APPEASE ENVIORNMENTAL EXTREMIST GROUPS SUCH AS THE SIERRA CLUB AND THE CENTER FOR BIOLOGICAL DIVERSITY THAN JUMP START THE OFFSHORE AND ON SHORE DRILLING THAT OUR COUNTRY DESPERATELY NEEDS. IN 1973 IT WAS ALREADY PROVEN THAT IF YOU TAKE THE OIL WE HAVE OFF-SHORE, ON SHORE AND IN THE ANWR IT WOULD ADD UP TO 880 BILLION BARRELS OF OIL WHICH AT THIS POINT WOULD TAKE US ALL THE WAY THROUGH THE 21ST CENTURY AND BEYOND! PLEASE RUN FOR PRESIDENT. IT WILL BE A CHALLENGE TO GET THE U.S BACK IN THE BLACK. IF YOU TAKE YOUR OWN PRINCIPLES WHICH HAVE MADE YOU AN EXTREMELY SUCCESSFUL BUSINESSMAN AND APPLY THEM TO RUNNING OUR NATION LIKE A BUSINESS, WE SHOULD HAVE PROSPERITY FOR DECADES EVEN CENTURIES TO COME. I WILL DEFINETELY VOTE FOR YOU!

Trump's a smart man. Has he heard of the Smoot-Hawley tariffs just before the Great Depression?

Who gets to keep 25% tariff, Donald Dumb? Uncle Sam or you? The day you become president, our inflation rate will shoot by 25%. Do any of your fans realize that?
