Now this is hilarious.
At the very moment former Obama Treasury Secretary – and officially one of the most annoying aides to have served Obama, which is a high standard – Jack Lew is busy dismissing President Trump’s trade policies, the conversation is interrupted by a bulletin saying that Trump has gained concessions from the Europeans.
“I’m in a little bit of a bad position to respond not knowing the full details,” Lew stammers. Meantime, CNBC’s Sara Eisen takes him on: “If this is true, this would be certainly a win for the administration, and it would show the world that these tough trade tactics are working – this idea of short-term pain for long-term gain. It’s certainly not the way you guys went about it.”
