Trumponomics at Work

Great way to create jobs:

In the coming days, the Trump administration will take steps to delay and ultimately rescind an Obama administration rule allowing foreign entrepreneurs to come to the U.S. to start companies, sources familiar with the situation tell Axios.

In real terms, this doesn't make any difference in anyone's present visa status -- the rule hasn't taken effect yet.

But what it says about Trump is -- well, it would be troubling if there weren't so many other negatives clustered around the man. OK, so he hates foreigners. We knew that. He doesn't consider consequences -- we knew that, too. He has no common sense -- yeah, that, too. And he has no clue about how things work.

Via Mock Paper Scissors, which offers this insight:

Entrepreneurs are going to start their businesses somewhere. What if the next Facebook-level success is Russian instead of American? Or what if Elon Musk had gone to the UK instead of here?

But he's going to bring back those coal jobs, for sure.
