Try to convince the Taiwanese and Tibetans of that.

I wonder if Trump's base can take much more pain...

https://www.forbes.com/sites/kenrapo...ina-goods/amp/

Net job losses if tariffs go up to 25% depends on the state, but The Trade Partnership forecasts 29,000 job losses in Ohio and 32,000 in Pennsylvania. Both states voted for Trump in 2016.

“If 25% duties are eventually imposed on all China goods, and then you consider a Chinese retaliation, we estimate it would result in over 2 million jobs lost in the U.S. over the next one to three years,” Baughman says.

I would say Taiwan and Tibet are within the general confines of their geographic area. Especially since Taiwan itself used to be part of the pre-communist Chinese republic.
