I agree 100%. Trump should raise it another 25% to make it 50% just for China until they drop their 25%.. See how they like the one way deal. That would get them to the table and ready to cut a deal. Also, no one can own a company in China. We should reduce purchasing China product if all possible.
We had been hosting the family 4th of July party at our house for several years, back in 1989, when the Tiananmen Square incident took place. I had usually spent about a hundred dollars myself on fireworks and several others who came spent more. After the armored vehicles drove into the protesters, I took another look and decided maybe some of us should seek a different way to celebrate our country's birthday without supporting the economy of our greatest political and economic rival in the world.
Started checking the labels on my purchases for other items as well, and while I couldn't completely eliminate Chinese goods, I sure did cut back on them a lot. I know, they seem to have survived without my pittance so far, but it still feels good to continue my resistance, so I do.
The media seems to me to be stretching things about as far as they can to scare the public with the prospect of higher prices on "everything", due to the tariffs on Chinese goods, without mentioning that those higher prices will almost certainly cause some goods to be sourced elsewhere....maybe even from domestic companies.
I am still wearing Chinese shoes. Have just about given up on domestic sneakers. Wore some New Balance for several years that were made here, but the last time I was in the market they had moved the production of that model to China, so I just bought the best cheapies I could find at the local Shoe Sensation.
There used to be a web site showing US made products. Have not seen it lately. Buying American is a good idea, but you better get your checkbook out. Foreign stuff is cheap because of their dirt cheap labor. I say support well- paid American workers, stand together, suck it up and pay the extra $$ for your goods.
