Is a "Cold War" underway?

Is the hype Trump is putting forward to distract from his economic war?

Iíve been having a thought but am not smart or educated enough to know if there is any reality to it.

Enormous debt.

Tax cuts.

New welfare payments to corporations being harmed by Trumps economic war. Those payouts will only increase and will be spread across an even larger segment of the population.

The false propping up of the market by way of the tax scams tax cuts for the repatriation of funds and how those trillions have been spent. <- Not enough people paying attention to this. Itís huge.

Seems to me that we have little to nothing to prop us up when the next recession/depression hits. These economic moves of Trumps, which are often extremely aggressive, are weakening us severely. Now more than ever other countries will have the ability to harm us economically when we do take a slide.

Really looks like Trump is dabbling in a world wide economic war that is weakening us.

Iím not saying doomsday or we wonít recover. Iím saying that without partners and protections in place that it will simply be longer lasting and more severe.

1. In spite of his love for Putin and Kim they seem to be allying with China.

To a degree add Iran. Trump either is too stupid or refuses to acknowledge he is being played.
