WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump promised on Twitter that tariffs would maximize the country’s economic heft and “MAKE AMERICA RICH AGAIN.”
Almost all economists say the president is wrong. That’s because tariffs are taxes on imports. They can cause higher prices, reduce trade among countries and hurt overall economic growth as a result.
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla.—After a two-year chase, a NASA spacecraft arrived yesterday at the ancient asteroid Bennu—its first visitor in billions of years.
