I had been posting article links regarding the now engaged trade war Trump started in 2018 in the “This Day in Politics” thread but felt it was enough of a story on it’s own. So I’ll be using this thread to discuss Trump’s trade war.
This is the latest item in the trade war escalation:
Will Trump keep fighting the trade war as other countries and trade unions retaliate? Will Trump in turn pose new tariffs and taxes in further retaliation?
- Trump will continue and escalate trade war
- Trump will stop posing new tariffs but will keep existing ones running
- Trump will keep tariffs but will give exceptions to certain countries
- Trump will end tariffs started in 2018
I think as the economy is hurt by the tariffs, Trump will end the ones his administration started for “national security”.
