It will benefit us all if we can bring back appliances to the USA, because the stuff we have now is pure crap. Father in law just replaced his dishwasher after 26 years! Mine lasted 1 year.
a) discourages imports;
b) encourages US production;
c) generates more tax revenues

Smells like winning to me.
It does. It has to be driving the left nuts when the toast lands butter side up for Trump every time.
The rules are different, for the USA — because, it’s the world’s most successful ‘trading bloc’ all by itself. Smaller economies (such as Canada’s) can reap huge benefits from trade deals — because of economies-of-scale, among other things.
The USA has a huge economy, and thus great economies-of-scale. Among the “other things”, the USA is a very diverse economy, and has access to resources from the arctic to the tropics. You don’t need to import oranges, or Arctic char, for instance. The USA could be an autarky — only Hollywood, Wall Street, and Silicon Valley would really suffer from that.
