We are talking about this government, aren't we?  If we were any other kind of government like China or NK, we would not even be having this discussion because you would not even be allowed to own a gun.

Trade wars rarely work.

Tariffs punish the citizens of the nations that impose them.

Only a total imbecile would impose them.

Oh, wait... Trump.... nuff said.

Don't all wars punish the citizens of the nations that wage them? Perhaps in some cases the hoped-for long-term outcomes of the war justify the short-term punishment.

Politicians are never short on reasons for imposing short term punishment on their citizens in exchange for dubious promises that never materialize.

Is it possible that trump would prefer no tariffs and is using them to get others to drop theirs...it would seem china is now open to dropping or rolling back some of their horribly restrictive tariffs, and trump will respond in same...

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/11/07/business/china-trade-trump.html

I can't read people's minds, but it would seem if they are imposed, as they were in canada and mexico, and/or the threat is used and removed...it would seem that the tariffs are being used as a "tool" vs a policy.

The bad part about tariffs as a policy is they simply provide another revenue source for gov't. to enlarge gov't, and in the end the tariffs are an indirect tax on people as prices rise to cover the added tax...and no value is added between the producer and consumer...
