Trump’s next $100 billion tariff dilemma: hit Wal-Mart or Apple Store?

A Reuters analysis of Chinese imports shows that to quickly reach $100 billion worth of goods to tax, Trump may have to target cellphones, computers, toys, clothing, footwear, furniture and other consumer goods, prompting price rises at U.S. retailers.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) ? U.S. consumers may be about to directly feel the effects of the trade fight started by U.S. President Trump with China and other countries this year when a new list of Chinese imports to be taxed is announced in coming days.

After imposing import tariffs on solar panels and washing machines in January, Trump moved to levy steel and aluminum in March along with about $50 billion in other goods.

After China responded with a list of U.S. goods that would be subject to tariffs, Trump raised the takes on April 4 by directing the U.S. Trade Representative to consider $100 billion in additional levies.

But a Reuters analysis of Chinese imports shows that to quickly reach $100 billion worth of goods to tax, Trump may have to target cellphones, computers, toys, clothing, footwear, furniture and other…

  1. Thanks for following up on this issue, Dr. Bramhall. As the analysis makes clear, a trade war with China requires engaging a lot of interconnected vital units. America’s highly technological industries depend upon complex supply chains, including China. Such is the nature of globalization. Whatever Chinese imports we target next for new tariffs will have repercussions throughout the national and global marketplace.

  2. Most of what people think they see, in murica is gutter lies, manipulative smelly horseshit, a lot of psychotic conspiracy confabulation, hyperpeterintellectualized bullshit.  Many people like me  have done every job there is, in shithole murica. Worked in nuclear plants. Breathed industrial chemical shit or rad shit dust in muricas backbone ,industrial fukholes. We have cleaned at a mcdonalds. Bagged groceries. Dug ditches. Shoveled horse shit, If people came even close to getting payed, by how hard, they had to work and how dangerous a lot of peoples work is maybe things would be different.  If people were given decent places to live , decent healthcare in this shitass place, maybe things, would be a lot different . Maybe things might be different for many,in this assinine blowhard, parallel fukwad and degenerating shithole society. But they are not.

    If every month a person like a sociology college professor, a quack blowhard doctor who constantly misdiagnoses overprecribes garbage shit , and spends most of its time bitching about crappy private and medicare reimbursements had to really work. If a shitass lawyer had to work a day at a burger king or, in a smelly dangerous chemical  industrial plant, or as a  low end medical aid or bedpan nurse , at amazon or walmart, or as a cop things would be different. If they  had to pay 2/3 of their income in a ghetto tenament for rent, w no access to medical care, barely paying bills, watching this shit society fall apart around them…….

    If crooked politicians and their sire …….

    Maybe people who work hard,  would get paid ok . Maybe more would have a decent place to live, healthcare, food that is not riddled with shit poison chemicals, maybe things would be different. Maybe the people who have comforts would stop bitching about the people  they percieve less than human and become semi human themselves.

    If more people here saw the real murica, maybe there would be some changes. 

    If people from africa saw the way things really are  here for most people:The garbage, the violence, the smugness,  with shit lying med care, overindulgence in the junky phoney-wasteful, fake society . Piles of chemical and redioactive garbage. The chronic illness from the pollution and shit fake abundance, the overconsumption. 

    It they saw what most likely awaits most of them if  they come here: The hate, the itinerant shelter, maybe they would rally to save their own countries that still have some clean water , air, and soil. If shitwad mureicans saw reality, maybe they would do something with the evil demon 
    Killers leaders, liars and scumbags. Their criminal politicians ,   that are destroying africa and the rest of the world. That are destroying this country. 

    And yet  all the dumn monkeys here,  ignore the ecocidal destruction of life support that makes them fat, stupid, makes their children be birth defects, makes everyone hate everyone else,   in this chemical-radioactive sewer. Maybe there would be incentive for the africans to do something about their countries.

    If you  saw the shitty delapidated boarding houses, with 100 rooms in major cities. The firetrap boarding houses that have shit on the walls in the main halls, shared toilets an 8 by 10 room for 800 hundred a month with 3 african refugees in each 8 by 10 room . African refugees that go to Mcdonalds down the street, for free wifi to talk to their white prostitute girlfriends in jail.

    All the chaos, wastes, violence, nonsensical bullcrap, walking over homeless people in shithole cities. If you stopped and really saw and talked to young people who cannot afford to move out of their parents houses or young people and working poor families, that work three shit jobs to pay 1300 a month for a shithole. 

    There are the more privilidged working at a chemical plant, breathing crap that will kill u in 15 years. Working in shit chemical plants  makes half the kids they sire retarded with birth defects, so they can drive that nice big truck.  So they can contribute further  to the huge islands of garbage in the  ocean, the size of texas. Have more water full of radium from fracking and cars and coal plants, yet the illusion must go on.There are a lot fewer birds in many cities in murica,  not many because of pesticides, fuku, car exhaust, nucular power trash 75 percent if insects in n hemisphere dead. Nuclear power plants on the verge of fukups , that constantly belch radioactive tritium dioxide in wit the water vaor from their cooling towers, into the environment.
    Whats left of wildlife un murica is coyotes and crows moving into degenerate human shitholes to eek it out for a while.

    There are the sycopants and suckasses  who have lived comfortably, as librarians et al, and cannot really think for themselves . They prattle on about some fuking payed political hack racist , loser college professors in canada. Demented old idiots living on social security and or some bloated pension, they do not deserve, that watch fox tv. The same fox where a talking head tells them to vote for asses that further want to degrade them, fuk them and everyone else over. That want  bomb more innocents all over the world into oblivian. .

    Their are engineers and workers,adminstators, vampire ceos, sukasses, criminal politicians, wall street vampire squids living comfortably. They create the weapons and munitions . The death machines for the empire, to massacre innocent people, all over the world and turn them into refugees.

     Of course, the refugees are forced to cum to this degenerating chemical radioactive , shithole . Many end up in poverty or maybe 1 or two can be sociology professors..

    Meanwhile, The Vampire squid shitheads that  pedeantic college  professors call,  masters of the universe, in their suckass intellecualized diversions talk, enourage the propaganda. Wal street vampire squid hedge fund “managers” are destroying peoples pension funds, gulping resources en masse, killing what is left OF THE ENVIRONMENT, and pushing more people to the edge, in this goddamed eraserhead nightmare.

    What is left of an eco system in this fake fraudulent chemical, radioactive craphole. In this police and nuclear security state is rapidly dying.

    There are a far fewer birds anywhere in the us shithole usa. All of the fukwads with their rosecolored glasses, never notice it. There not many because of pesticides. There are the chemical and coal plants.  There is the fracking  that poisons our water with radium. There is the jet exhuast, th car exhaust, nucular power trash. 75 percent of insects in n hemisphere are dead. Most birds are gone. U cannot eat fish from the great lakes. Really not even the ocean.
