This is exactly why I roll my eyes when anybody in government does something to ‘get tough’ on china. Yeah yeah, you sanctioned some random CCP party members with American holdings, big deal.
Last year’s tariffs on steel sure didn’t help anybody I know. Domestic steel mills took it as an excuse to raise their prices too, so now manufactures just had their raw material costs increase no matter who they were buying from. Thanks guys…
When Apple is forced to build their iphones elsewhere, then I’ll think America is taking it seriously. When the US navy stops patrolling and protecting the trade lanes for the chinese container ships so they don’t have to, then I’ll believe they’re taking it seriously.
Until then it’s just so much hot air and sabre rattling.
