Either that or Lowes and Best Buy saw an opportunity to hike their prices and blame BAD ORANGE MAN for that.

I screwed up and meant to put the full title in my first comment. I was thinking it was going to truncate the title and I didn’t know where it would cut off.

The price escalation results from stainless steel rather than painted steel

The price of manufactured items in America FELL last month, and it was near zero for the entire past year.

AMERICAN CONSUMERS PAID ABSOLUTELY ZERO PERCENT OF THE TARIFFS.

Now, let’s see the Lefties/Chicom sympathizers in the MSM explain why the tariffs are so ruinous.
