Tariffs are taxes, so what does that mean for last year's big tax cut?

June 01, 2018

It's been a while since one of President Donald Trump's tweets made economic news, but today he kind of scooped the rest of the government. "Looking forward to seeing the employment numbers at 8:30 this morning," he tweeted, potentially violating a federal rule against discussing that job report early. We'll talk about why that matters. Then, more from the brewing trade war, including more of your questions and a look at whether rising tariffs will undo recent tax cuts. Plus, an interview with the first American to study at a North Korean university. But first, as always, we'll recap a wild five days gone by on the Weekly Wrap. (06/01/2018)
