Government cutting special deals for special friends – is always obnoxious, obnoxiously bad policy. It takes a lot of money from innocent, unwitting citizens – and hands it to politically-connected cronies.

We have repeatedly written about the widespread ignorance/misinterpretation of now-President Donald Trump’s perspective on trade. Way too many people – who are alleged to be able to know better – dismiss Trump as anti-free trade. Or even anti-trade. Behold the Washington, D.C.-New York City Bubble boobery on parade: Donald Trump’s Opposition to Free Trade Trump’s…Free…
