    What you're all forgetting is that trade barriers are more insidious than tariffs. We can't get products into Japan without a pry bar because they quarantine perishable food items and "safety inspect" industrial items for months at a time....Most of our attempts to trade with Japan never leave their docks while they claim they're not tariffing us.....State subsidies also have to go.....the Bank of Tokyo, backed by the government, funds their car makers R&D...imagine how Ford and GM could cut their costs if Sam did that for them. And with N.Korea lobbing missiles over their islands, you can bet Trump reminded Japan of what defending them might cost if they didn't start opening their markets to hungry for US goods, consumers there.
