    As new tariffs take hold, more see negative than positive impact for the U.S.

    77% dems say bad thing.

    The poll doesn't differentiate tariffs on countries with manipulated currency and below cost prices, but it still strikes me as odd. The gop is now isolationist.

    And look at the break between college and non-college educated. And white grads and non-grads

    Strange days indeed.

    How did Trump shift the Republicans from a free trade party to a pro-tariffs party? Free trade was a tent pole issue for Republicans.

    Easy! It wasn't "free trade"!
    Now CHINA AGREES!!!

    President Xi Jinping highlighted the need to speed up protections in a speech last year, calling for stricter enforcement and for infringers to pay a “heavy price.” Also in 2017, China started a nationwide campaign to protect foreign firms’ international property rights. The Ministry of Commerce says China is a developing country and doesn’t have a perfect system to protect IP, acknowledging that there’s much work to do. Premier Li Keqiang, in a speech in March, promised to protect the rights of foreigners investing in its economy.
    Terms of Service Violation

    So here is a simple example. Apple spent billions on developing proprietary, i.e. they own the patents in the USA... China under the current trade laws doesn't have to
    pay Apple for using the patents to manufacturer competitive products.

    I know this may be hard to comprehend but unless Apple and other US companies get fair trade agreements, they lose and America loses.

    The Chinese Finance Ministry said Tuesday that it will cut import duties on passenger vehicles from 25% to 15%, starting July 1.
    Think about that! A TARIFF on a USA made car WAS 25% now it is a grand 15% ! Wow!!

    http://money.cnn.com/2018/05/24/news/car-auto-tariffs-us-germany-japan-toyota-volkswagen/index.ht

    For example..Currently, vehicles shipped from Europe to the US face a low 2.5% tariff
    Meanwhile, cars built in America face a 10% tariff when they're shipped to the European Union.

    A Jeep Wrangler can cost $30,000 more in China than in the United States — and the reasons illustrate a growing point of tension between the two countries.

    Manufactured in Toledo, Ohio, the Wrangler is a descendant of the jeeps that were used by American forces in World War II. Equipped with a 3.6-liter engine and a five-speed automatic transmission, the Rubicon edition of the Wrangler has a suggested retail price of $40,530 in the United States.

    Does that seem FAIR to you?

    I'll have more trade tariffs for our "allies" with a side of that good Baykal caviar, a side of Chinese trade smackdown, and a hot steaming cup of Angela Merkel/Teresa May tears . . . with some Skittles tossed at the teacup. MAGA.
