GOP angst grows amid Trump trade war

Republicans are growing more nervous about next year’s race for the Senate as President Trump ratchets up a trade war with China that increasingly threatens to cause pain to U.S. farmers.

To be sure, the 2020 elections remain more than a year off, the president is popular in farm country and voters in rural states largely have stuck with Trump through thick and thin as the economy has grown and the jobless rate has fallen.

But GOP senators say few expected the trade war to last as long as it has.

With markets plunging on Monday and China announcing retaliation against U.S. farm exports, fears are growing that the fight could take a bite out of pocketbooks and even pose a threat to GOP senators at the ballot box next year.

3. May they "angst" themselves into oblivion.

Any person or group (especially complicit Republicans) that blindly supports Trump is part of the existential threat to democracy.

Enemies, foreign and domestic.

6. When they turn on him he'll then

Do the same to them and bypass them all together, just like he'll ignore the Judicial system we have because he's above the rule of law. All because these republicans didn't stop this nightmare from continuing when they had the chance.
