Nope.
Tariffs are an import tax paid by the importer not the exporter.
American companies will pay the tariffs on Mexican imports just the same as they are paying the tariffs on goods from China.

They’re paying in the form of lost trade.

Now if Trump would move on to taxing the remittances that are 1/3 of Mexico’s economy that’d really hurt them!!!
