President Trump’s gangster pose is starting to wear off. When he was pushing through to spiked the stock market, help corporations and the wealthy, nobody said a work. Tax cuts were pure economic folly, but as long as he and the GOP were helping the powers that be it was all good. Trump’s policy on tariffs are also pure economic folly. Trump And The Global Economy (“Trump And The GE”), a speaker series on the economy and Trump’s policies, explained that a few months ago. Now General Electric is criticizing the president’s policies on tariffs.
This appears totally out of character for General Electric or another large corporation to openly attack the president. It is unexpected given that Trump’s policies have inured to the benefit of GE and other large corporations at the expense of regular citizens.
