I have called for Tariffs for the last two decades.
But I am told we MUST have Free trade.
Free trade sounded great until all the jobs left the country and now suddenly everyone wants Tariffs. Tariffs are a great idea.
Republicans want tariffs. Democrats want tariffs.
When trying to get elected nothing sells like tariffs.
Of course right after the election you won't hear another word about tariffs until the next election.
