The latest set of statistics from the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) shows all of the professional pundit claims of higher prices on imported goods due to Trump tariffs are simply disconnected from reality. In actuality the year-over-year prices of import products are actually dropping: ...The U.S steel and aluminum tariffs have been in effect globally since 2017. Tariffs on softwood lumber (Canada) & durable appliances (S. Korea), same duration. Additionally the first set of tariffs on China is now well over a year old; and the second set of expanded tariffs on China began a month ago; again, no material impact to the delivered price. Despite two years of claims by the professional media that tariffs would lead to higher prices for U.S. consumers, as you can see above the reality is quite different. https://theconservativetreehouse.co...s-decline-during-full-year-of-import-tariffs/ As with so many aspects of the Trump Presidency, he has proven his critics wrong. China's economy is very weak and they have tried to bypass tariffs by hiding the country of origin (often stated as Vietnam) of exports, or by clamping down on Hong Kong (where the tariffs do not apply). Mexico and Honduras are now tripping over themselves to secure their borders and stem the flow of illegals. Immediately after the threat of sanctions, the President of Mexico (a communist) fired his immigration chief and sold off the mexican Presidents airplane. Point being, Trumps critics were wrong.
