Thread: Thank you Trump for $300 billion worth of tariffs on Chinese poisoned goods

    Thank you Trump for $300 billion worth of tariffs on Chinese poisoned goods

    The Trump administration is preparing tariffs on $300 billion worth of Chinese goods. Here are all the products that will get hit.
    https://markets.businessinsider.com/...9-5-1028200711

    Looking at the list most of this stuff I would not want to put on my dinner table considering where it is coming from and their piss poor record in food safety. This will be a boon for American producers and for the health our people.

    The free trade traitors on Wall Street and the news media can piss off. They do not give a damn about the health and prosperity of the people in our country first. As far as I am concerned $#@! Communist China and their shills.

    Does that mean all of the countries under the Chinese debt trap will be free?

    Agree about health. All Chinese food including green tea branded as organic, consistently tests positive in toxic heavy metals like lead, mercury. Never eat anything from China until you have googled what toxic heavy metals tests are available. You'll be shocked. It is a criminal government with no regulations and they'll shove any poison at you and lie about it.

    no seriously that whole belt and road thing is a scam, they bribe corrupt politicans into signing on to a debt trap that the country can't pay off. China will probably end up owning those countries if they don't collapse.

    I gave up on trying to raise them myself. They eat too much fish and smell. We used to race them.

    Think of it as a consumer tax. Totally voluntary. Don't want to pay the tax? Don't buy Chinese $#@!. Buy American. Buy local.

    Local producers raised the price of washing machines the same amounts that importers subject to tariffs did. You didn't avoid any tariffs by buying local- you still had to pay the higher price. Less competition lets them raise prices more.

    I haven't paid a higher cost on any product I have bought of any significance. Buying is voluntary.

    Actually you are right, but it's OK if it is propping up the correct economy, domestic. I remember when the steel workers union bitched because the price of Asian tires were being sold cheap. So O-Bro put a huge tariff on tires to bring them up to a more competitive price margin. What did the American companies do? Raised their prices right back up to the the same difference it was before the tariffs. $#@!ing greedy unions...

    Not sure about the connection between steel workers and tires, but OK. Protecting one industry though can hurt others. The tariffs on steel and aluminum help workers in those industries but make it harder on industries which use steel and aluminum to produce things- and there are many more of them than there are steel and aluminum workers.

    Iron and steel jobs total about 145,000. There are 2.5 million employed just in making cars.

    They are all Steel Belted Radials. Big truck tires are all both steel belt tread and steel sidewalls. A lot of steel in a tire.

    Gotcha. I figured it would be the automakers more concerned about tire costs. As a percent of the steel market, I would imagine that tires are not a major component of demand?

    Huge... Every tire made has steel in it, from car tires to heavy equipment tires. The steel in one set of four tires for only one big loader is the same as it would be to make a car. On an earthmover/scraper it would equal two cars. The 18 tires on one big rig and trailer equals the steel in an automobile. I don't know and never have checked but the tire steel industry is probably twice or three times what the auto industry is easy.

    It depends on the nature of their collapse and whether the countries involved try to renounce the debt.

    I'd rather that the money go to American companies and workers instead of the ChiComs.
