Pocahontas and John Smith: Together Again

Of course, Smith is or was a notorious liar, but he may have been strategic in his choice of allies.

Elizabeth Warren won't endorse Trump's specific tariffs, but she thinks tariffs to protect American jobs are part of a good trade policy. Bernie Sanders has taken a similar view, and he endorsed tariffs against Chinese steel in particular in the 2016 campaign. Of course, Bernie described open borders as "a Koch brothers fantasy" until he was persuaded that his progressive sources of funding would dry up if he took that view.
