    But Trump pulled these 25% tariffs out his ass and that message will be lost to other nations ? You think the rest of the world is stoopid ?

    Sounds like whataboutism to me.

    The point was this was tried, Japan diversified. It did not throw Japan way off into never never land.

    So are you now agreeing this is the case?

    Whether or not tariffs have damaged trust in agreements with the US or not is separate. If you're going to say that - fine. But at least first make it clear whether or not you are now admitting it didn't work. I wouldn't necessarily disagree with you on that point, although I'd say it really didn't matter beforehand because I'm sure there are more than enough examples of both the US or other parties breaking treaties in this way. US probably didn't live up to several agreements in the past, and as far as other countries, China's a good example actually. It's pointed out now only because it's a president who does things regardless of what his party or others like; the people in congress are not angels with perfect track records by far.

    Also, it's "stupid", not "stoopid". It's also "nuclear", not "nukular".
