President Trump wants American jobs and factories to return. He cites some pretty grueling and relatively accurate statistics in support of his position. And it's looking like we can safely bet that Trump is planning to increase tariffs on many more products than steel and aluminum.
He has also tweeted previously that a trade war would be “good” and “easy to win.”
But whether tariffs or a trade war could reverse those statistics, or possibly make them even worse, is another matter entirely.
