Hopefully something that will work a little better for us.

How about a steel wall on our southern border with Chinese steel and a 10% tariff? Very big project, they may go for it, and save us a shlt load of money.
Tariffs are how you have a successful negotiation. We have threatened them for decades and never put them in place. When we negotiated trade deals, that bargain chip was therefore useless.
And we got the bad end of the deal.

Really, there is an art to it. Read the book!
