On a day when the largely markets rose, an interesting item to look at tonight is a tie-in with the tariff controversy. One will recall that Kevin Clayton decided to weigh in on the tariff issue, ICYMI, or need a refresher, see that linked here. On the same left-of-center business network, CNBC, we get some back and forth between the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which is undermining confidence in the president’s tariff strategy, vs. the 45th President of the United States (POTUS), Donald. J. Trump’s, reactions to those comments on tariffs and trade. That will be our focus report this evening.

Today’s Big Movers

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –
Let’s be clear. Big business has literally sold out millions of formerly American jobs on the alter of their interests in other countries. That has occurred under both Democratic and Republican administrations, so it isn’t a partisan statement.
Certainly, within the bounds of the law, it may be legal to do what they’ve done. That’s not the question. The issue, instead, is has it been good or bad for America? Has it cost our federal government untold billions, in the form of both more domestic public assistance programs, and in terms of higher defense costs to defend against the growing economic/military/cyber clout of nations American dollars have enriched?
What some have deemed ‘the swamp’ ought not to be construed as meaning only Washington, D.C. or national politics. There is swamp-like thinking that has and continues to occurr in business, among nonprofits, and certainly in politics too. Indeed, for truly expert power players who work ‘the system,’ they may mix in media and fund subtle cultural levers, plus the others just noted, into what they see as their advantages in separating people from their money or opportunities.
While the U.S. Chamber has been thought of as a right-of-center resource, that has changed somewhat in more recent years. But regardless of party, there may be no better time than the present to head of what could be seen as the larges geo-political-economic threat to the U.S. The president is to be applauded for this efforts, which have proven fruitful with Mexico.
China is far more powerful than our southern neighbors. There is certainly the potential that the tariff-turmoil could continue for months or years.
National and economic security go hand in hand. Furthermore, these are issues that the president campaigned upon, and therefore should be of no surprise to anyone.
It was an entirely false notion to think that the U.S. could have a ‘serve economy.’ Production is where the money and value tend to be over service work. Be it products or food, being the producer is more secure than being the beholden buyer.
With that backdrop, two videos for each side of the issue tonight.
· President Trump’s tariff strategy “creates uncertainty with our trading partners,” says a top official at the world’s largest business lobbying group.
· Myron Brilliant, head of international affairs at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, contends that tariffs are the wrong approach with China and Mexico.
· Reacting to Brillant’s interview, Trump calls in to CNBC to argue his case for why tariffs are effective. He also blasts the Chamber of Commerce.
There is doubtlessly short-term pain for numbers from the tariff to correct trade imbalances strategy. That noted, there is more long-term pain for not taking the necessary measures now.
