The first economic lesson that Larry Kudlow should deliver to Trump? That trade deficits are ‘made in the USA’ ….
Johns Hopkins Universtiy economist Steve Hanke advises Trump’s new economic czar Larry Kudlow to explain to his boss that the US trade balance is ‘Made In The USA’ and not by ‘unfair’ foreign trade practices.
If someone who wants to keep abortion even late in pregnancy counts as “pro-life” and “conservative,” or even “moderate,” everyone who holds a position to the right of his starts to look like a right-wing extremist.

He (or she) who frames the issue tends to determine the outcome of the election. That’s an old political consultant’s rule, and its application has never been more apt than in the Senate Democrats’ failed government shutdown over immigration policy.
