Donald Trump is declaring victory in his trade war with China.
Of course he is. He always claims victory, even — in fact, especially — when he loses.
Remember the 2018 midterm elections? You’d have thought Republicans had won every seat and exacted punitive damages from Democrats who’d had the temerity to run against them.
Trump is essentially the Black Knight in Monty Python and the Holy Grail. The damage he’s done to our economy is “but a scratch,” and he’ll bite China’s legs off if they try to run away. Or so he says.
