they increased the cost to consumers. thy hurt the average American. that's why they were eventually abandoned. the same was true of bush's steel tariffs. i see from your response you understand this. yet, you make an excuse for the obama tariffs. typical.

and some people worked very hard to open up those markets. jr Simplot personally went to China and introduced them to the potato and how to cook and market it in retail. just for one example.

second part of your reply:

Trump doesn't care about keeping big donors happy. He believes his policies will get him reelected not the advice of political consultants.
