If tariffs are a good thing & Americans don't pay for them thru higher priced goods, then why would he need/decide to delay the latest round of tariffs on China so that US retailers can stock up before Christmas & not have to raise prices?

so none of his supporters can explain why if we're not paying for the tariffs, why would he worry about cost increases for Christmas?

I went to a local small business yesterday to look at new houses for two of my feathered babies. The owner is giving me a great deal - two sweet houses for $560. The owner told me she just got her new stock in and the prices she paid went up. Guess why.

Because tariff wars are never good and consumers pay the tariffs, NOT China. Did Fox News inform their viewers that they were conned and China doesn't actually pay the tariffs, they are passed on to the consumers?

They won't happen later either, Trump lost his tariff war. Screwed with the stock market while he was at it.

Because he was lying or just plain stupid about the consequences of tariffs.
