    To be fair I think what he means if if HD waited long enough, Trump would win his trade war and those tariffs would go away. Of course to get to that point, they have to wait out the current system which DOES in fact enact tariffs that were going to cost them several thousand more per bike to make and sell.

    So if you believe that Trump is good at what he's doing and will ultimately win, and he believes that, then he's not lying. If you have a brain and use common sense, you can see what he's saying is not true, he's not going to "win" and it's going to ultimately cost companies like HD lots of money if he continues down this path.

    He also betrayed HD workers whom he promised the tax cuts would save their jobs. They didn't.

    I just keep picturing Ron Howard's dad trying to choke Donald Trump.

    Trump now saying he will hit HD with a special tariff. This is such an abuse of Presidential Power and I don't understand why its being ignored. This man thinks he can just target and business he wants and tell them what to do. What ever happened to all the "free-market" conservatives?

    • Safeguard measures aimed at blocking steel diverted from U.S.
    • Canada weighing mix of quotas and tariffs, people familiar say

    The Canadian government is preparing new measures to prevent a potential flood of steel imports from global producers seeking to avoid U.S. tariffs, according to people familiar with the plans. The Canadian dollar weakened and shares in Stelco Holdings Inc. soared.

    He is doing the same thing with Amazon trying to get the Post Office to increase what they charge Amazon to deliver packages.
