    You win a free MAGA hat, made in China.

    Some MAGA hats made in China may increase in price because of tariffs

    You made a claim, of a lack of results. I responded, by pointing at some good economic numbers occurring during the time frame you are focused on.


    Asking for proof of linkage, was not a serious reply from you.

    Ok, I will tell you what has really happened. GM has stated that the tariffs have cost them $1 billion. Bankruptcies in the Midwest farm belt have not been this high since the Great Depression, and Trump has had to resort to socialism to bail them out. The country has lost tens of thousands of jobs that disappeared, because manufacturers have decided that it is cheaper to produce in countries with lower tariffs. Coal mining companies continue to collapse. There has been no new aluminum manufacturing in the country, and Trump has not succeeded in coming to terms with China on trade in over two years. Meanwhile, the cost to American consumers for everything from Coke in aluminum cans, to cars, have increased.

    $42 Billion? Gee, that's less than $15 per person in the US. Why haven't I noticed? Should I start checking labels? Or just keep supporting China?

    By all means, keep supporting China:

    One can't help but wonder if Trump put a tariff on his own clothing made in China.

    Your spin conflicts with the numbers on increased manufacturing jobs and increased WAGES for those jobs.
