Steve Schmidt: Trump’s Tariffs a ‘Disaster’ for this Country

‘This is a disaster for this country as we edge into the early days of Trump’s premeditated and unnecessary trade war’

EXCERPT:

SCHMIDT: "I want to talk very specifically about the Canadian relationship. We have a $1 trillion trading relationship with Canada, our number one trading partner, it's the number one trading partner for 35 states, tens of millions of American jobs are at stake here. This is a country that has made enormous sacrifices in the aftermath of 9/11, Canadian forces fighting side-by-side with American troops. And it is extraordinary to see an American president when we see this attack on our country, on our elections process, on our democracy by the Russians, who will not under any circumstances apparently criticize anything that Putin or Russia does, his focus is attacking Canada? It’s madness. And for the first time his economic policies on these tariffs will crush middle-class American families with the increase in costs that will come with this. This is a disaster for this country as we edge into the early days of Trump’s premeditated and unnecessary trade war."
