Trump's Tariffs on 3/15/2018 1:25:22 AM


China, for one, has a massive tariff on automobile imports, nearly doubling the price of American cars. This cuts off foreign automobile companies from the biggest car market in the world.


China generally places tariffs on most imports anyways. China is protectionist when it comes to trade - the tariffs make already expensive foreign goods literally unaffordable for average Chinese citizens.


As for the EU, here’s a list of European tariffs.

True, one of the biggest concerns about the tariffs is the possibility that they could start a trade war, but it’s ridiculous that our biggest trading partners like the EU and China get to impose numerous tariffs on us while we have to take it and pretend that we’re still engaging in “free trade.” One of the reasons we use more steel than we produce is because most of our steel mills have been shut down, replaced by cheaper foreign steel. Revitalizing our domestic industries will be good for us in the long term, in my opinion.

President Trump recently imposed a 25% import tariff on steel and a 10% import tariff on aluminum.

Do you think this is a good idea? Will it help the American economy? How could this impact the world economy in general?

Personally, I think it's a good idea, but I can be persuaded otherwise. With this new tariff, we can get other countries to do things we want (like renegotiation on NAFTA) by offering them exemption from the tariff. It's about time we did something about our trade deficit, if you ask me. This seems to be a good way to strengthen our domestic industries and economy overall in the long run.

Came here to say this.

True, you wouldn't pick up skills on how to specifically overthrow Nazi regimes, but you'd still probably have lots of experience with hiding from governments and law enforcement agencies.

Didn't you get grossed out by it at first? Even a little?

If they go to whatever afterlife you believe in...

Doesn't that mean they could all go to hell?

True, you're not immortal, but you're extremely resistant. Combine that with hundreds (or thousands) of years worth of experience, and I think you'll come through with only a few lost arms...
