THE BEAUTY OF IT...:

Exclusive: Trump says Republican border tax could boost U.S. jobs (Steve Holland, 2/24/17, Reuters)

U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday spoke positively about a border adjustment tax being pushed by Republicans in Congress as a way to boost exports, but he did not specifically endorse the proposal.

Trump, who has lashed out at U.S. companies for moving operations and jobs to countries such as Mexico, had previously sent mixed signals on the proposal at the heart of a sweeping Republican plan to overhaul the tax code.

"It could lead to a lot more jobs in the United States," Trump told Reuters in an interview, using his most approving language to date on the proposal.


...is that it allows Donald the delusion that he's punishing foreigners, but it's legal precisely because it doesn't do what he thinks.
