KRUGMAN: What looks like raw ignorance and prejudice is, in fact, raw ignorance and prejudice


@paulkrugman
Amazing how many people have spent time trying to project some rationality onto Trump trade policy. What looks like raw ignorance and prejudice is, in fact, raw ignorance and prejudice



@MichaelRStrain
"Events are making the post hoc rationalizations about Trump’s trade regime — that he is actually a radical free trader using tariffs to make trade even more free in the future — increasingly unpersuasive."
