    Trump's bet is that the final agreement will be worth it.

    We're sure as hell gonna find out. Markets will love it when the deal is signed, then we'll see what's actually in it.

    Here's hoping.

    IF they aren't written off then they are passed on in the cost of doing business- the "cost of doing business" is just that

    Are you sure that China is the enemy of the day? It is hard to keep track of who Trump wants you to hate, between Mexico. Latin America, China, NATO, and Muslims, without a program...

    Don't worry. It is OK to convince yourself that the Chinese didn't raise their prices to cover the tariffs. I understand.

    It seems to me, these tariffs only hurt Americans if they go out and consume. I thought you folks on the left were against consumption, isn't it bad for the environment? Doesn't that add to one's carbon footprint?

    I would think you would be happy about this. . . you should you make up your mind already? :dunno:

    Seems to me, you should be celebrating consumption end taxes, anything to slow down consumption would be a good thing in your eyes, right?

    The sure way to avoid this tariff is TO BUY LOCAL.

    Isn't that good for the planet?

    Right? yes? Don't you care about the planet and climate change?

    Or would you rather these tankers be shipping shit from China? Is that it?

    Trump doesn't direct my hate of communists, that came from a lifetime of reading and learning of the horrors they've committed.

    If Reagan were around today, you can bet China would be dragged by a leash. America has THEM by the balls, not the other way around. Stop giving them the ball, dunk it on them.

    Chinese citizens deserve to be free and experience capitalism, not remain subjects of a cowardly system that has slaughtered too many million to count.
