    Agree. Tariffs are taxes on US consumers. If he’s trying to get trade barriers down, that’s not the way to do it. But, it’s not like most of the politicians and bureaucrats have an understanding of economics. The ones that do are few and far between. She’s a socialist who has ZERO concept of what “medicare for all” would cost. LBJ’s “Medicare” was a similar disaster and “Medicaid” is a disgrace. Sigh!
