It's not just China now , Trump has added Canada , Mexico , and most of Europe to his list of trade tariffs. Pretty much everyone we trade with.
Then they claim it we only raise prices on metals a small percent. But that's a false narrative because those countries we put tariffs on will put tariffs on our products going to there counties, Farmers will suffer as those countries find other countries to purchase from. Other American companies will lose out to foreign companies who produce the same thing but now at a cheaper price.
There almost no way to see how America benefits in a trade war.
These same type of trade policies made the Great Depression worse and last longer. So get ready for a bumpy ,bad rid.
