So what you’re saying is everything manufactured or produced should stay within it’s country of origin? No one can import or export? Go through your home and belongings and return everything that’s not from the US and return it to the country where it was manufactured. Yep.....that’ll work real well.

The push back is from GM and Chrysler, along with the factory farming hog, corn and spinach. Also the computer components. If you look at who is spreading the BS on this anti Trump stuff, it is Mitch McConnell, John Thune and #nevertrumpers like Errick Errickson, which points to who is really paying their salaries. No one is forcing anyone to buy things with tariffs on them, as you can buy a Ford of Toyota made in America or grow your own spinach.

What I would like to see is a tariff on foreigners brought in, as the corporations who exploit them, underpay them, so Americans will not work for that, because an American with Social and income taxes gets 35% of their wages taken, while the foreigners are mobile in not paying either, so they make a great deal of money on that uneven playing field. Companies which do not have to pay medical for Mexicans, but have to pay for Americans, do very well in this scheme. Americans though are harmed in this, and you will notice that all of our protectors from Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and Donald Trump, never mention one word about this scheme, as the people who back them are the ones making the money and having their interests protected.

It's not about the imported stuff as much as the imbalances in the way it has been stacked against up often by our own politicians. The same BS they said would do us a favor by sending our jobs to other countries. We made China what they are today and they screw us every chance they get to do it some more the ones that benefited the most are the ones that set it up in DC over the years.

^ that is correct and we just keep letting them take advantage of us. Mexico needs to start taking responsibility for this drug war and start being a respectful neighbor. The country is a disgrace and have NO intention to stop the drugs or immigration problem. The country makes their money on the drug world in one way or another they will not shut it down. They will appear to be but not to be trusted because they know they have the blue party from US on their side. It is all about votes and the US politicians.

That is why I say screw mexico!

They just go where the labor/price is the cheapest. So do 99% of the people on this thread. Trump is trying to bring cost of doing business in line and that will bring back jobs to this country. If we lose our manufacturing capability, we will be at the mercy of the country/countries that provide us with that. Guess who!

Toyota has a lot of American made vehicles here in the us. My wife is an Environmental Engineer at a factory that makes parts for Toyota. I go out of my way to try to buy American made stuff-it is harder than most people thing. But my way of thinking is; if I buy American made, then Americans are working.

The lower end of Martin guitars - made in Mexico.
Lower end of Fender guitars - made in Mexico.
Lower end of Taylor guitars - made in Mexico.
Some parts for Harley Davidson motorcycles - made in Japan, China and Mexico.
As wy.wolfer stated - US labor is too high - sad thing, but it is - what it is.

Just don't see buying things that break trying to get them out of the package as a deal! LOL Most items the packaging it superior to the product that's inside.

It's amazing the amount of people that are OK with being pushed around and getting the short end of the stick, PC has done a number on this Country over the last 30 years. Sad
