Jack Ma, CEO of Chinese marketing giant Alibaba has announced that he is dropping plans to expand and create one million new jobs in the US because of Trump's hostile trade action toward his country. You may recall that Trump appeared with him just before the inaugural touting and hyping the creation of these million jobs. Well, kiss that goodbye along with most of the rest Trump oversold and undelivered on.

I also saw an article today that said Walmart and Target (I think it was Target) asked Trump not to impose the additional tariffs. But since he did, now they have to decide whether to absorb the cost or pass it on to their customers.

Enjoy it while you still can because China and the Chinese are used to rough going...….Americans on the other hand...………...wouldn't know rough going unless their Mexican landscaper told them what it was all about..

Since most Trump supporters shop at Wally World, I hope they raise their prices accordingly.

Gordon Chang: Trump's latest China tariffs are the right thing to do

http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2018/...ing-to-do.html

President Trump’s announcement Monday to impose tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese products is already drawing fire, but the tariffs are justified and in America’s national interest. They are also good for the world.
