TRUMP RESPONDS: The President Says He’s Considering Another Tariff on $325 BILLION of Chinese Goods

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.13.19

President Trump confirmed Monday afternoon his administration is considering an additional tariff on over $325 billion of Chinese-produced goods after trade talks with Beijing abruptly failed late last week.

The potential tax is a direct response to China’s decision to impose a 25% tariff on $60 billion of American-made products last Friday.

“The economic conflict widens as the two sides struggle to strike a new trade agreement. Trump decided to increase the tariffs following what the U.S. called China’s decision to renege on key parts of a developing deal. Equities markets fell Monday after the Chinese response,” reports CNBC.

The US Stock Market was rattled by the potential trade war between the two giant economies, with shares down sharply in mid-day trading.

President Trump doubled-down on his widespread use of trade tariffs to improve the US economy and the American manufacturing base Tuesday, saying he is a “tariff man” after reaching a 90-day “truce” with China.

“I am a Tariff Man. When people or countries come in to raid the great wealth of our Nation, I want them to pay for the privilege of doing so. It will always be the best way to max out our economic power. We are right now taking in $billions in Tariffs. MAKE AMERICA RICH AGAIN,” tweeted the Commander-in-Chief.

“But if a fair deal is able to be made with China, one that does all of the many things we know must be finally done, I will happily sign. Let the negotiations begin. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!” he added.

AMERICA FIRST: The President Says Country’s with Unfair Trade Deals Will be ‘TARIFFED’

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.17.18

President Trump doubled-down on his administration’s aggressive international trade policies Monday; saying nations with unfair trade deals will be “tariffed” in the coming weeks.

The Commander-in-Chief praised the international tax on social media just days after threatening China with a new round of tariffs, adding “Tariffs have put the U.S. in a very strong bargaining position, with Billions of Dollars, and Jobs, flowing into our Country – and yet cost increases have thus far been almost unnoticeable. If countries will not make fair deals with us, they will be ‘Tariffed!’”

The President’s comments come after he threatened China and other countries with upwards of $250 billion tariffs on foreign-produced goods, including aluminum, steel, and other raw materials.
