Cohn faction strikes again.
If Trump drags the US into war, doesn't enact the Wall Tax and doesn't begin to build the Wall, then he will be reelected because the stock market is booming and we'll be in a war so voters will be reluctant to "change horses" in the middle of a war.
Trump wins either way.
May. Could. Is said to. Anonymous sources say.
All key bs indicators.
Well that's the intent. They're supposed to engage domestic suppliers instead.
The New York Times..., some FReepers most trusted source.
They (the dooshes in the MSM) still don’t get it.
This isn’t working any more.
We stopped paying attention years ago.

When was the last time Steve Bannon had any real influence? Do conservatives have a voice inside that Beltway?
“Trump Is Said to Abandon Contentious Elections Promises”
Full story on the Rachael Madcow Show
‘is said’......’according to two people’.......New York Times
Nuff said.....take it with a grain
Back Down, What?
So we will
keep funding foreign nations’ militaries ...
The border adjustment tax is not necessary at this point
It is in fact counterproductive
It is a necessary tool to counterbalance the mindset that encourages the exportation of America’s industrial and technological base - and American jobs along with them
Trump has won the battle to reverse much off shore export of manufacturing but to win the war he must reverse the regulatory and taxation obstacles to American manufacturing to rebuild our manufacturing And other sectors that are being killed and exported
If he can do this, we will see an American economic renaissance if he fails the restoration if American industry will die on the vine
He still needs the border adjustment tax as baseball bat but he does not need to use it right now because he has already won the reversal of job exports
This is one where I actually don’t agree with Bannon.
The idea is to cut taxes, not just to shift them around. And a BAT is three-quarters of the way to a VAT. As well as tough on lower-income folks who do depend on a lot of cheap imports.
Big, bold and beautiful corporate and personal income tax cuts are what is needed. And I am hopeful that Trump is on the right track for them. I hope the GOP in Congress don’t bog it down however, the sooner the better for both the midterms and Trump’s reelection.
Typical BS mix and match of the NYT. Never heard PT say that a border adjustment tax was a key feature of this tax program — That was Ryan who wanted the border adjustment tax. PT has just said a fair system, one where if they charge 20%, we charge 20%, if they charge 50% we charge 50%. Never heard him say he wanted and had to have a border adjustment tax. That was Ryan’s way to raise tax revenue —Pt’s approach has been to have fair trade. So typical of the lying, corrupt, unethical NYT.
Since when was it a “key component” of the Republican tax policy? It was a SUGGESTION.
Jeez you people are something.
Not a good week for anything dealing with the border.
I want to hear it from his mouth. Tired of the media twisting things around and around from their so-called sources, putting words in his mouth. I seriously doubt this is off the table, it may be on hold for reasons we are not aware of.
I assume Trump’s letting libs think he’s abandoning it, in order to facilitate negotiations.
