"President Trump dubs himself a 'Tariff Man'" I’m sorry Stan Lee didn’t live long enough to create Tariff Man.
If I could be a superhero, I would be Tariff man. Social media responses turned the phrase into a viral social media trend.
Today trump declared that he is “tariff man,” and yesterday he threatened to end subsidies for the development of electrical cars and technologies. He is like some weird industrial and mercantile Taliban. Fear modernity. We are traveling back in time.
