Quote of the Day: Destroying jobs with protectionism


“Trump says he wants to save American jobs with protectionist policies such
as tariffs. Some people object and say that yes, but foreign retaliation will
destroy jobs.
    “This isn't good enough, and it isn't accurate.
    “It is not a matter of jobs saved due to American protectionism VERSUS
jobs lost due to foreign retaliation. It is jobs destroyed by American
protectionism AND jobs destroyed by foreign retaliation.”

~ Keith Weiner
