At 12:01 a.m., U.S. customs will begin collecting a 15 percent tax on products such as clothing, footwear, pens, pencils, diapers, Bluetooth ear buds, televisions, golf clubs and fishing line.

The Chinese government has had little regard for internationally accepted recognition of intellectual property and have increased totally lopsided trade policies that are designed to benefit China exclusively. Past US presidents and administrations have had little appetite to confront the Chinese government regarding these issues and, as a result, China's economic benefits and global influence on trade has continued to unfairly grow. Trump is the first POTUS to address this with attempts to make trade and intellectual property issues more fair. I applaud his efforts. Ha ha ha ha. China isn't paying for Trump's moronic tariffs...American consumers and companies are. As for "addressing" China's "unfair" economic influence and refusal to honor the rights of intellectual property owners, well, there's no reason to believe Trump's trade war will do that. "Look for the union label" doesn't mean anything to you anymore? This from a guy who pays no attention to paying for the intellectual property he downloads and plays?


I'll bet you think it's ok for you to steal intellectual property
though. Fat Harry thinks he is imune to being labeled a thief for
the various underhanded financial moves he's made. Ultimately,
American citizens have had to pay for Fat Harry's thievery.
