O’Rourke Just Demolished ‘Disastrous’ Trump Over His Damaging Trade War

Democratic presidential hopeful Beto O’Rourke slammed Donald Trump over his “disastrous” trade policies and claimed that even though he may have reached a deal with Mexico on immigration, the damage due to his tariffs had already been done.

“The damage from this president’s disastrous tariffs has already been done,” O’Rourke, a former Texas congressman who represented the border town of El Paso, said in a press release.

“Farmers, ranchers, manufacturers and entire communities of Americans have paid the price for these trade wars. What we see is another example of Donald Trump trying to be both the arsonist who created this problem in the first place and the firefighter who wants credit for addressing it,” he continued.

O’Rourke’s campaign noted that American farmers’ personal income dropped by an annualized $11.8 billion in the first quarter of 2019 despite a $12 billion subsidy plan to help those who bore the brunt of the trade war.

“As a lifelong resident of El Paso, Beto uniquely understands the impacts of a trade war with Mexico on our American economy and the Americans who depend on trade to run their businesses and support themselves and their families,” the campaign said.
