Yep countries will still have to buy. It's a global economy despite what the isolationist trumptards want you to think.

The consumers will just have to pay more. Guess that will offset those "massive" tax cuts for the middle class right???

Other countries also have tariffs. Europe is a prime example.
All tariffs aren't all bad, hitting commodities is always pretty risky though.

Going by your hatred of President Trump only the tariffs he wants to impose are bad. Figures.

Tariffs=taxes and most are bad. The ones Rumo implemented and proposed seem short sighted and more harmful to the US than helpful.

Now let's try to think rationally here, why would China impose a tariff on a major source of food for both their people and their livestock?

Either way, you guys lost your collective, little minds over something that's looking like another Trump win :D

Something definitely needs addresed on the trade imbalance but I doubt the people trump has amassed is capable of handling the job. Trump is just a New York liberal in concervitive clothing running from his past indiscretions. Resignation is his only way out,,Go trump go! Just go.

Once again the liberal socialists are left behind the brain train.

Tariff negotiations are the opening volley in an attempt to correct the horrible trade issues with
China. The real issues is not related to commodity prices of imports or exports, but rather to the Chinese
insistence that intellectual property be given to them as a condition of trade in China. That means
patents on advanced technical matters and not hip hop record albums.

As things now stand, our ability to produce substantial quantities of high tech military hardware
is dependent on China. They now control the manufacture of advanced electronic components.
Nice work Obuma.

Trump is right again.

And the possible imposition of protective tariffs is how you negotiate trade issues.
Unless you are Obuma; then you simply give everything away.

President Trump has always stated that he will negotiate these trade deals when they are fair to the United States. He does not want to give the farm away like previous Presidents have done. Same with NAFTA. GO TRUMP GO

Let's take soy beans as that has been in the news lately. There is only so much soy beans on the world market. If China decides to buy from other sources than the US than the US producers will just sell to someone else.
Soybeans you say! Since WE are so big into green energy, turn the excess into Bio-Diesel and keep them here.
