    Let us know when Trump matches the $10T Barry added (doubled) the national debt. At least Trump is spending on something useful like our Military instead of pounding sand down the solar and windmill ratholes.

    Companies aren’t buying new equipment. They’re fixing up, upgrading, refurbishing their existing machines. This is helping me in aftermarket sales.

    and they need to buy parts to do that...

    the cars are selling because consumers believe Trump's tariff war, will make them rise in price....


    Even the prices of vehicles made in the U.S. would rise by about 5 percent, or $1,800, because all use some imported parts. Luxury brands would absorb the sharpest increase: $5,800 on average, IHS concluded. Mass-market vehicle prices would rise an average of $3,300.Feb 15, 2019
    New car prices could rise if Trump imposes auto tariffs

    Thats good.

    Then they should choose cars not affected by the tariffs, or better yet the car companies should buy American steel.

    Eventually, they will have to, if there are even any American made steel companies selling to car manufacturers anymore...

    Well, one would hope that shut down steel companies would open back up and put Americans back to work. If we had the backbone for a sustained tariff war thats exactly what would happen. But that would take a few years.

    As soon as someone calls you out on your bullshit, your fallback position is insults and calling others liars. Too bad you can't back up the Administration's propaganda machine lies with genuine good news. Things like:

    1. Trump has actually negotiated a trade deal which reduced your trade deficit;

    2. Trump has done something to restore stability to supply lines;

    3. Trump does more than disrupt current trade, and actually does something to support exporters, and .

    4. Trump starts dealing humanely, and in a fiscally responsibly way, with the refugee claimants on the border, which means releasing the detainees, and getting rid of the for-profit prison operators working there.;

    5. Trump starts co-operating with House Oversight investigations.

    This is FAKE NEWS! My Neighbor is a car salesman & could not sell a single vehicle in August & July sales were very very slow as he only sold 2 that month. September sales did pick-up for him because new model year was released. He has been selling 2 a week.
