Trump and his team presented an economic plan, which experts have described as “horrifying” and “a disaster for the U.S. economy.”

Trump summoned his top economic advisers to his private golf club in New Jersey for a two-hour dinner. According to the Washington Post report, if elected, Trump plans to enact a universal baseline tariff on virtually all imports to the United States.

Trump was joined by Larry Kudlow and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, and the report claims that the former president would create “a ring” around the U.S. economy that could represent “a massive escalation of global economic chaos, surpassing the international trade discord that marked much of his first administration.”

Some called it “lunacy”

Peterson Institute for International Economics President Adam Posen labeled the plan as “lunacy,” adding it was “horrifying” and would lead the U.S. to lose trust with other nations.

Posen noted, “You’d be depriving American families of an enormous amount of choice, making their lives much more expensive, and putting millions of people out of work.”

American Enterprise Institute’s Michael Strain called the plan a “disaster for the U.S. economy. “It would raise prices for consumers and be met with considerable retaliation from other nations, raising the costs facing U.S. businesses. It would reduce employment among manufacturing workers,” Strain said. “It would be very, very bad.”

People have plenty to say

One person shared on Reddit, “Somehow, this vacuous moron bumbled his way into the White House and was President for four years and still has no idea how the government works on even the most basic level.”

The same poster added, “Blind leading the blind, but they don’t care if they fall in a pit if they get the chance to own the Libs.”

This Reddit user wrote, “Trump doesn’t have policies. His “policy” is the same as the last person who left the room.” Another added, “Virtually EVERYTHING that Trump says is nonsense. The absurd is fashionable now.”

A history lesson

Someone explained, “Sounds like another tariff introduced by a Republican administration and passed by a Republican House and Senate. It was named Smoot Hawley and caused 25 other nations to respond with tariffs of their own. It was the beginning of the Great Depression in June 1930. Nearly 1,000 economists asked Hoover to veto it. He didn’t. A Democrat administration was left, naturally, as we have learned over and over, to clean up the mess. It took a decade and a war.”

Others were scared

One person stated, “They will burn this country to the ground so they can rule over the ashes.” Another joked, “His plan is the drinking bleach of economics.”

This person wondered, “Well when it comes from a lunatic, what do you expect?!?”

The real problem

Someone explained, “The problem, proved over and over again, is Republicans implement these destructive economic policies when they get in office, and the consequences and most of the pain doesn’t start revealing itself until a Democrat gets into office. Then it falls on them politically.”
