    Because in China the government picks up the tab,

    Most businesses in communist countries are heavily subsidized by the government

    In the US and other capitalist countries the companies get stuck with the bill

    most of the goods are purchased by American's , taxes imposed on Chinese goods, American's have to pay the price tag. Because American's are the major purchaser of everything, since we are so wealthy compared to all other nations.

    Because Chinese businesses don't need to buy as much from the U.S. as American businesses need to buy from China. For example, Harley was hurt because they need metal from China to make motorcycles, but Chinese don't need motorcycles to make metal.

    It was done by Trump.

    If President Obama had had any intestinal fortitude this would be hailed as the greatest Foreign Policy move since stopping the pirates at Tripoli.

    However the Left are suffering form Battered Woman's syndrome.

    They would rather be beaten by China rather than have the courage to get away.

    It is a lot easier for Chinese businesses to find products to replace US products in other countries at competitive prices than it is for US businesses. Why are Trump and Ivanka's businesses Manufacturing in China???

    Not a "Lib" but - who says they don't?

    It's just that Trump's tariffs hurt American businesses and consumers more than China's hurt their businesses and consumers.

    >> According to the liberal media Chinese tariffs on America only hurt America.

    No, it's just that the "liberal media" is only reporting on that part of it. You know, since they're American and think it's more important to report on things that affect Americans, than on things that don't.

    I thought you LIKED "America First."

    ----------

    Just so we're clear about what's actually being said:

    Tariffs hurt both sides. They just hurt one side more than they hurt the other. Always. That's simply the calculation that has to be made whenever tariffs are assigned.

    THIS time, the side they hurt more is us.
