'Tariffs are a beautiful thing' -- Trump doubles down on his trade war strategy with China

President Donald Trump doubled down on his tariff strategy on Monday on the heels of a weekend border security deal reached with Mexico.

"People haven't used tariffs, but tariffs are a beautiful thing when you are the piggy bank, everyone is trying to get our money," Trump said during an impromptu interview on CNBC's "Squawk Box."

Trump said his threat to impose tariffs on Mexico encouraged the country to agree to stronger immigration enforcement, and predicted that the strategy would be successful with China as well.

President Donald Trump called into CNBC on Monday to make it clear that he is not backing off his tariff strategy in dealing with China and other countries, apparently energized days after he announced a border security deal with Mexico.

The writer should know fucking better. The deal with Mexico was hashed out before the Trump threat.

More Trump kabuki theater.
