What do you suppose would happen if China read news of unity about tariffs

  • Let me get this straight. These 600 plus know-it-alls are advising Trump to get China to level the playing field? Where have these bozos been the last 3 years? Don't they know that is what he is trying to do? But they want him to do it by bowing down (wrong administration) and letting them continue trampling us.

    Trump doesn't play like that. He knows tariffs will hurt us some. He aslo knows they will hurt China more. We are in a much better position to withstand a trade war than China is. They know that too but can't believe Trump will actually follow through. They should have paid more attention when he interrupted dessert to bomb Syria. So, we will have our little trade war, then we will be stronger than before.

    It is amazing he is able to do so much good despite the constant nattering naysaying and attempts to derail the Trump Train by the left, and even his own party. But it is exactly that-- trying to stop him from doing what is right for his great country-- that recharges his batteries every night and makes him the formidable force he is every day.

    "What would his re-election say?"

    His re-election will say:

    "Neener, neener."

    "F/U, Libtards."

    and

    "Let's keep America great."

  • Not much to add that hasn't been said.

    Tariffs are painful, but they are temporary with an end goal.

    What is strange is the people who decry tariffs the loudest are vocal supporters of corporate taxes, when both have identical effects on the net consumer.

    The fringe benefit of tariffs are the number of industries who've decided to move production back to the US, creating more jobs.

    With continued pressure, and a unified front (yeah right) China would fold. They need our money much more than we need their products.

    Having 28% of the global GDP is a pretty big stick.

  • Good comparison between tariffs and corporate taxes
