Playing his base

Trump set up the American people by waiting to threaten tariffs on Mexico’s goods shipped into the United Sates until after an agreement with Mexico had already been reached in March (Washington Post), well before his declaration of said tariffs. He thereby continued his ploy of playing his base, not unlike the circus barker who cries out to the crowd, “Come in and see this lovely lady without her red dress,” whereby they find she now has on a blue dress.

“What fools (some voting) mortals be.”
