Donald Trump’s White House obviously has no idea what it’s like to have your entire livelihood threatened. As stocks jerked up and down Wednesday, a White House reporter asked Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders if Trump was “worried that this saber rattling is causing many people in this country to lose money.”
Obviously not, was her answer:
“We may have a little bit of short-term pain but we’re certainly going to have long-term success.”
Hey, no worries, guys—there may be a few less meals on the table, some missed mortgage payments, and a bankruptcy-inducing health incident or two. But in the end, your personal pain will be so worth it for the country. Thanks in advance for understanding!
