Republicans are good at cinching the belt a notch and pulling up the boot straps to own the libs.

Who in their right mind would even argue that tariffs wouldn’t increase the cost of goods? That’s like the entire point.

Implement tariffs, blame China for increasing prices on the goods they sell us Midwestern Americans.

Perfect plan.

He's blaming Midwestern Americans for continuing to purchase the Chinese goods, though.

Hey guys, continue all your product dumping, putting tariffs on everything we sell you, your IP, putting back doors in all your tech gear, your ongoing industrial espionage and your encroachment on the sovereignty and International Waters of the South China sea . . . why ratcheting up your rhetoric on Taiwan etc. etc. etc.

An added bonus to owning the Chinese is that now we have a socialist farming system.

China slapped Tariffs on nearly all U.S. goods years ago, they now have a $5:$1 trade advantage.   While that's not the only factor, it is a factor.

China is wise to play the long game, because once enraged LibDerp Nation put ChiCom Joe in office, the Chinese will have their guy.

I thought Dems were generally opposed to free trade and the associated problems.

I assumed that is why Schumer and Pelosi supported Don's position on China.

They also have a worse economy than us and can't afford to purchase as much of our products as we can afford from them.

Serious question.  What happens if China were to decide to call in all the loans they've made the US government?

They are purchasing US bonds and are currently being paid the agreed upon rate.

There seems to be consensus that China selling US bonds would neither be very good for China nor affect the US all that much.
