    Interesting how things made in Vietnam are acceptable but not things made in China.

    Vietnam has an actual Communist government, which is one of the reasons we are not supposed to like China.

    We have a trade deficit with Vietnam, which we are told is bad when it comes to China.

    They have tariffs on our products, which is bad when China does it.

    But fear not Trumpers, Vietnam might be Trump’s next target for more tariffs.

    Of course you play coy, what else is new?

    Once again the US was built on Tariffs, China and the rest of the developing countries have been using them forever on US goods, why the fuck do you think Trump did this?

    Trump did this because regressive taxes on the poor and middle class are GOOD for you!

    So, Trump's tariffs are all about China's unfair trade practices, right? So, all those things that you buy where the price is up 30% because of Trump's punishment of china is good, even though the money came out of your pocket, right? So, why isn't trump returning that money to you in the form of income tax credits? Wow! is it because he intends for the government to keep the taxes that you paid for China?

    NAWWWWWW!! He will return it to you as soon as Mexico sends him a check for the wall.

    I'll ask again: If a high-tariff policy is so bad, how has China prospered by imposing sky-high tariffs? How did the U.S. become an economic powerhouse when we followed a high-tariff policy from Lincoln thru Ike?

    And, how is a U.S. company supposed to compete with a Third World company that can pay its worker dirt wages with few if any benefits? Pay our workers dirt wages and cut their benefits? How is a U.S. company supposed to compete with a company in an industrialized nation that subsidizes that company and protects its prices with tariffs?

    The value of high tariffs/protectionism used to be widely and commonly understood--until both parties largely adopted the globalist free trade agenda of no economic borders. If an open physical border is a bad idea, how is an open trade border a good idea? Thank goodness Trump has come along and broken that suicidal paradigm.
