The tariffs have failed and actually harmed the steel industry.
We pay the additional costs, not the Chinese. Trump is lying or doesn’t understand tariffs. He has said things like this several times so I assume someone has explained tariffs to him. I think this is just another lie.
Trump’s trade policy is hurting farmers. Trump lies about the estate tax changes. They won’t help many farmers. He has told this lie many times.
They haven’t added many jobs either.
Trump either lies or misunderstands tariffs. The American public is paying the costs.
