Well this is different:
President Donald Trump’s Treasury secretary and top trade advisor opposed his surprise plan to impose new tariffs on Mexican imports, according to a source close to the White House who said the idea was pushed by immigration hawk Stephen Miller.
So while all of Tariffman’s economic advisors (living typo Steve Mnuchin, China trade war enthusiast Robert Lighthizer, even Larry Kudlow, the Baghdad Bob of economics) said ‘DON’T DO IT!’—the tariffs were pushed hard by Comrade Stupid’s pocket Nazi Stephan Miller, and he got the last ear worm in Pol POTUS’ head.
And please also consider that PeeWee Hermann Goerring was the one who purged the child-stealing-and-caging ghouls at DHS because they were not cruel enough.
Miller’s hobby, as we all know, is keeping swarthy people out of the country by any means necessary, and punishing the ones who do come here:
White House senior adviser Stephen Miller is openly berating top members of the Trump administration for failing to implement “public charge,” a proposed rule change that would deny residency status to immigrants who rely on public benefits.
“You ought to be working on this regulation all day every day,” Miller reportedly shouted during a meeting last month in the White House situation room, according to The New York Times. “It should be the first thought you have when you wake up. And it should be the last thought you have before you go to bed. And sometimes you shouldn’t go to bed.”
So I’m not surprised that our balding fascist would urge the Mango-hued One to do this, what is alarming is that he succeeded.
