I get what you said about trade deficits alone not being meaningful I happen to agree. My point was is that trade deficits are important to Trump for some reason (ignorance probably) and he is using tariffs to try to reduce deficits.

That isn't working. It's only making the deficits worse at this point and raising the price of goods. And then when the Chinese reciprocate, it is harming farmers and others here. So, you made a statement saying loosely that maybe Trump should be doing nothing and I agree. Because what he is doing is making things worse, even those things (deficits) that he is trying to help.
