Trump Claims Canadians Are Scuffing Up US-Bought Shoes So They Look Old When Smuggled Home

That thing where Glorious Leader says something so completely batshit insane that it gets a baffled mention on Footwear News:

After imposing additional tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods, President Donald Trump is drawing even more discussion today on social media for comments he made at the National Federation of Independent Business’ 75th anniversary celebration in Washington, D.C., to honor America’s small businesses.

After touting his rising approval numbers and discussing immigration laws, Trump suggested that Canadians are illegally moving U.S. goods, particularly footwear, across the border into Canada to avoid tariffs — which the president said were “so high, they have to smuggle them in.”

“They buy shoes, and they wear them. They scuff them up to make them sound old, look old,” Trump remarked, prompting reporters, journalists and other media members to respond on Twitter with their own stances.
