People not understanding how tarrifs work is odd to me. China doesn't pay for them, American's do.

Not at all odd to me, given the sorry state of economics education in the US.

Anyway, back to your point: What you said is true, Americans pay the tariffs on Chinese goods. I would like to add, those same tariffs can also hurt Chinese businesses by reducing their sales to America.

Not to mention, Chinese tariffs on American goods are paid for by the Chinese, and can hurt American businesses.

Given a worldwide marketplace, the situation is much more complicated than that. As just one example out of a plethora of complexities, if the American tariffs are only on products from China, and suitably similar products can be bought from other countries, then Americans will tend to buy those and not pay any tariffs at all.

Bonus points: Prior to Trump's Tariff War trade negotiating tactics, what were the tariffs imposed by China and the US on each other's products?

Interesting. They let in some right wingers, so it's not LIBBERUL bias.

Maybe the 10 most searched for?

That kind of looks photoshopped.

The pun is incredibly sexist insult though.

Good thing he did not instruct him to smell his taint.

That would make him liable for RICO of course. . . .

Trump is supposedly the big tough guy, but he comes to the UN to kiss their asses.

Just to review. Trump is rude and terrible at protocol and diplomacy goes to a UN and foreign leader and diplomats laugh at him eschewing protocol and diplomacy.
