John Oliver Animates Basic Economics, Tariffs and Trade Wars for Trump

Donald Trump is waging a trade war that hurts a lot of American workers, and he hasn’t a clue about the harm his tariffs are causing. Trump is encouraged and advised by Peter Navarro, his ‘Trade Guy.’ Navarro is a dangerous, unqualified loon whom Jared Kushner found on an Amazon search.  If you’ve written a crack-pot book, you too could obtain a White House post!

Because stupidity is increasing at an unsustainable rate, John Oliver offers this short film which explains trade deficits, tariffs, and basic economics in the space of three minutes. The film is animated, in full color and short enough that even Trump might grasp it. I’m assuming that A. Trump sees it, and B. someone re-plays it eleven times, the number of times that Angela Merkel had to repeat one word to His Idiocy.
