It’s a great start!
Snowflakes melting...a little LOL
BUT we cannot reciprocate.
There are miles to go before we sleep.
It is about a 30% reduction in tariffs 90.03/11 = 27.27%)
It is a start.
Match the Chinese tariffs.
Correction: 0.03/11 = .2727 = 27.27%
Butbutbut... The LSM droned that nothing good would come of Trumps tariffs!
These carefully targeted tariff cuts are PEANUTS and wont fool Trump one iota. FULL SPEED AHEAD, Mr. President...you have them running scared.
Even free-trader, Martin Feldstein--President Reagan's Council of Economic Advisers--defends President Trump's tariffs. In the best summary available on the subject, Feldstein explains that "Tariffs could be worth it if Chinese were forced to stop stealing U.S. technology."
“These cuts are not token by any means.”
3% is pretty easily overcome somewhere else - a slight currency devaluation, a new license or inspection requirement on the foreign competitor, a tax exemption for the domestic competitor, etc.
3% is not going to fundamentally alter the trade balance, and it is not going to to stop the wholesale theft of Intellectual Property. In the big picture, it is merely a token.
The general stated that we would blind China and anyone else involved on an attack of the USA and that specifically China was to sued for peace which would happen within weeks; that the country was going to be divided up into 18-19 different States nonaligned and that those plans were essentially a done deal. China is screwed if they don't win and if they are blinded, and the US Military makes surgical strikes throughout their military and water, elec, food distribution, to include a total destruction of their capacity to manufacture electronics that the peace would be permanent - leaving the US with a stockpile of electronics to rev up dominance in manufacturing. Far Fetched I think not.
Bottom Line it was going to be Signal that wins this war.
We simply need to make it mirror tariffs and it will be done. If they add a tariff, we add a tariff. If their tariff is 25% then ours should be as well. Because they import different things than they export, we should consider their tariffs to be either the same or added to a general tariff of goods coming from them.
It is a start. Amazing what the uncouth President Donald J Trump does on a daily basis to show what a total fraud and crook Barack Odunga is. It’s not even of a fair fight. Fluck the Rats / MSM
China cut the tariff to zero..
I’m not yet getting tired of winning, are you?

Barry will be claiming credit.
