    I made a sandwich for lunch and then fell asleep watching an old Hopalong Cassidy shoot-em-up so this is the first I'm hearing about the tariff delay. Given my belief in the truth and not facts I went straight to the White House website and found this which may help explain things. Somewhere in there is a coherent thought or two about the delay. Besides Christmas the part about having another very good talk with liars was also given as a reason.
    Q Why did you make the decision on the tariffs, to delay the implementation of the tariffs?

    THE PRESIDENT: Only to help, I think, a lot of different groups of people. And we had a very good talk yesterday with China — a very, very productive call. I think they want to do something. I think they’d like to do something dramatic. I was not sure whether or not they wanted to wait until a Democrat has a chance to get in. Hopefully that’s not going to happen because the economy would go to hell in a handbasket very fast.

    But they really would like to make a deal. The call itself was very productive. I’m not sure if it was the tariffs or the call, but the call was very productive. Again, they’ve said this many times; they’ve said they’re going to buy farm products. So far, they’ve disappointed me with the truth. They haven’t been truthful, or, let’s say, they’ve certainly delayed the decision. But it’s their intention to buy a lot of farm product.

    And we did — we had a very good call with China. I mean, they would really like to do — as you know, they have a problem in Hong Kong, but they would like very much to do something.

    That's how any talk with Trump could be described.

    It’s really hard to know what his motives are for backing off the trade tariffs until December. I think there is a fair chance he did it to buoy the stock market which has been sinking the last 10 days or so.

    I usually keep up on what is going on in the world, not just sit in my parents basement waiting for the next welfare check to show up. I guess I can refresh your memory about a leader who speaks out if something very bad happens and all we got was Hashtag #bring back our girls. My mistake, same thing though.
