With oil prices plunging, tariffs with our largest trading partner is the last thing my state's economy needs. You'd think 38 electoral votes and Ted Cruz's uncharacteristically narrow 2.6% margin of victory in the 2018 Senate race would advise caution as to anything that could upset the economic apple cart. Between that and potentially devastating auto/part manufacturers in swing states that delivered the narrow electoral college victory in 2016, it seems like a pretty boneheaded political move, economics aside.

Without emotion? It's best to make any major decision, specifically a financial decision, without any emotion. Financially, for stock purchases, look at the numbers and only the numbers, and if true as in not a lie, in the long term one cannot lose.
Depends on how you define long-term.  My long-term is now much shorter than it was 25 years ago.  I pay attention to other peoples emotions.  It makes it possible to crush the S&P when it goes nowhere but sideways for years.
