Consumers are paying the price for President Trumps tariffs, CNN claims. Millions will feel the pinch; many thousands will lose their jobs.
What CNN fails to mention is that millions of Americans already feel the pinch, and millions more have already lost their jobs. Why? Chinese consumers wont pay the price for American exports: China steals up to $600 billion in American intellectual property (IP) every year.
Trump understands that tariffs are a powerful political tool that can and should be used to force China to pay for their crimes.
Most Americans have only a fuzzy understanding of what constitutes IP. Basically, IP are ideas; the products of human creativity such as art, branding or inventions that can be owned and legally protected by registering copyrights, trademarks or patents. Examples of IP include Beethovens Sixth Symphony, the Daily Callers logo, and Teslas battery designs. Needless to say, IP is incredibly valuable and incredibly easy to steal.

Thot beefthovens music was public domain...
Who owns it then, Sony or Disney? ; p
Trump should simply say that if it can be proven in AMERICAN COURTS/venue that a chinese product is using American Intellectual property (including any patents) ILLEGALLY then EVERY PRODUCT FROM THAT WHOLE COMPANY OF THAT PRODUCT is to be blocked/banned from entering the US and any such goods seized.
That include old patents for products the chinese stole and used for years.
