There is a side benefit to the Tariffs that no so called "Experts" seem to take into account. With China suffering the Tariffs, other nation can now successfully compete for the business.

The Chinese cannot dump products under tariffs and thereby keep competition out of the game.

This suggest alternate suppliers will be engaged. It will take US retailers very little time to line these eager competitors up with delivery contracts. the American consumer will barely suffer, if at all.

In another thread you said home improvement projects were going to get more expensive because of Chinese tariffs, but here your saying all of these home improvement items are going to get less expensive. Make up your mind.

What amoung these items cannot be produced in another country? Even in America?

Btw you list is flawed

Bottled natural gas???/ come on we export the stuff.

Progressives demand a $15.00 an hour wage minimum here. But complain when we inhibit imports from nations using companies that pay slave wages.
