Trump’s Dangerous Detachment from Reality

Tweet [1]

In this short EconLog post on some recent Trump tweets about NAFTA, Pierre Lemieux exposes many of the ways in which Trump is totally detached from reality [2].

It is, frankly, frightening that a person possessing such power, and such a large public following, is so clueless about reality, so uninformed about economics, so blatant in his willingness to behave as if he’s a dictator, and so unintelligent as to be unaware of his own logical contradictions.

A certified madman divining ‘facts’ about trade from his reading of the entrails of a hamster would make no less sense than does the current president of the United States of America.
