Actually you are wrong. Rush is not a Globalist even though you don’t like him. Second, here is his statement from June 5 during a 5 minute discussion on the subject:
“So its just more of the same, and its a shame. I dont know how serious Trump was on the tariffs. He probably meant it and means it regarding Mexico. The thing is, the Senate cant stop him. The president can impose tariffs. He doesnt have to go through the Senate for a vote, so there is no overriding veto or any of that. The president can slap a tariff on anybody he wants, and all they can do from the peanut gallery is yell and scream about it and theyre trying to convince him not to do it. But they cant stop him, so its not really serious undermining of the position. But its not helping”.
That statement you posted was not an endorsement of tariffs or protectionism in any way. Rush was an anti “Trumpist” during most of 2016 when we really needed him. He is now pretending to have been pro Trump all along. Rush is Free Traitor, it’s in his DNA. He is stuck in the 1980’s.
