US FART Act

Some staffer leaked a bill Dotard asked to be drawn up in May to pull the US out of the WTO and give el presidentť the power to set tariff rates on countries and products without Congressional approval.

Most say it won't pass Congress, but even so, the gaul of the guy.

But you have to chuckle. Someone wasn't thinking too well and titled it the US Fair and Reciprocal Tariff Act, or the short version, the US FART Act.

I thought Republicans didn’t like a president usurping Congress.

After the White House discounting the FART Act, Dot Don had to speak out. Multiple sources on twitter have now posted a quote just out from him.

Quote:
“WTO has treated the United States very badly and I hope they change their ways. They have been treating us very badly for many, many years and that’s why we were at a big disadvantage with the WTO,” Trump told reporters at the White House.

It's OK If You're A Republican.

The right won't criticize this at all.

Other than when he invents imaginary national security issues, always.

The bad smell from the rest of the world will hardly be noticed. A bit of a FART might just freshen the air a bit.

See? Itís OK If Youíre A Republican. It seems to be a daily occurrence and pretty much indicates that they donít believe in our laws, or America in general.

If he was drafting a bill, then how is that usurping Congress?

The bill is asking Congress to usurp itself.
