   I could mention the rare earths threats, but I doubt that GOP would comprehend. 

   On a bigger issue,  remember the Steel Tariffs - that is not working as donald dreamt it would.   Steel prices in the US are cratering - and so are the jobs that were going to be repatriated - just like all the corporate cash being brought back to the US ( aka NOT).

President Trump’s tariffs could affect 23% of consumer goods, according to one estimate.


Millions of Americans will stick with their old washing machine, television and computer monitor, and refrain from buying new clothes and furniture.

But they may have a harder time avoiding the shops for their kids’ birthdays and during the busy holiday season when children expect new electronics and toys.

China Responds to Trump's Tariffs

On May 30, 2019:

  • Chinese buyers of U.S. state grain have stopped ordering and don’t expect to resume the purchases due to the disagreement over trade between the world’s two largest economies, a Bloomberg News report said, citing people familiar with the matter.
  • China currently has no plans to cancel previous orders, the report says.
  • U.S. soybean farmers have taken a hard hit from the trade tensions and the Trump administration last week announced a $16 billion trade aid program (TRUMP BAILOUT for FARMERS)  for those impacted by retaliatory tariffs.
