Barnicle: ‘Loss' sends people to the polls

As the Morning Joe discussion turns to how President Donald Trump’s tariffs plan will hurt Americans, veteran columnist Mike Barnicle explains: “Loss is the key word. These are the same people who when the economy crashed in 2008 and 2009, many of them lost their homes, they lost their 401ks (and) they lost their hope in this country. Many of these people also are the people who risk losing their sons and daughters in a war that's been going on for 16 years now. So, loss is the key, and loss triumphs over facts. Loss is emotion, loss is nostalgia, and loss sends people to the polls.” Listen to more of the discussion here.
