Bob Woodward's book confirmed this. Lots of people (including the Chairman of the Federal Reserve IIRC) have tried to explain to Trump how tariffs work. He sits there nodding and appears to be listening, and then carries on as if no-one had said a word. So not only was he profoundly ignorant of everything he needed to know in order to do the job when he was elected, he is still just as profoundly ignorant two years later. Because he cannot be taught.

Trump doesn't learn from facts, only from consequences to him.
If he was still building hotels, he would realize how tariffs on steel affect the US.
