Del Percio: People Are Worried Trump’s Going to Cut a Bad Trade Deal to Get Himself out of Trouble

‘We went from being Donald Trump thinking America first and it sounded good to farmers and other people involved in the trade war to America alone’

EXCERPT:

DEL PERCIO: "Actually, right now, Jonathan, people are worried he’s going to cut a bad deal just to get himself out of this situation to get the headlines out. You know, we went from being Donald Trump thinking America first, and it sounded good to farmers and other people involved in the trade war, to America alone. And when we have a global economic slowdown and we have these tariff wars, it’s disaster for manufacturers and farmers in this country. Add to that, Eugene touched on it, the chambers of commerce and business groups are not happy with this trade war, nor are they happy with the president’s immigration policies, because they also need workers. So this is all starting to unravel for the President. And again, I think at this point, knowing there’s only 14 months to go, he may make a very bad deal that these farmers can’t work themselves out of, and especially in the swing states it will difficult for the President."
