Unfortunately, he’s still too stupid to realize that the tariffs can be avoided by consumers by buying from a different country. Hmmmm.

This nonsense about tariffs causing price increases was pounded into everyone's head by the people that hate capitalism and our entire economic system.

If businesses can simply raise prices for consumers because of tariffs or taxes, what's preventing them from raising their prices to increase profits whenever they want?

If price increases can just simply be passed on, why should anyone but the consumer care?

The truth is, the consumer will be the last one affected by tariffs.
