Bonus quotation of the day on impeaching Trump for his trade war…..
View related content: Carpe Diem
…. is from Harvard economist and visiting AEI scholar Robert Barro writing in today’s Wall Street Journal (“I Won’t Ride the Trump Train Into a Trade War“):
To return to my musings about whether I support Mr. Trump, I recall a long ago assessment I made of President Nixon: He didn’t deserve to be impeached for Watergate but did deserve to be impeached for price controls. Similarly, Mr. Trump doesn’t deserve to be impeached for his myriad instances of political incorrectness, but he may deserve to be impeached for his trade war.
