A tariff is a tax, so if Trump is raising tariffs, he’s increasing taxes. Have you noticed the mainstream media has suddenly discovered higher taxes lead to higher prices for consumers and are generally bad for the economy? Why didn’t they make this argument when Obama was raising taxes, or when Trump cut income taxes last year? The differences are 1) it’s an easy way to do a hit piece on Trump, and 2) the tariffs are a tax are their ideological communist buddies in China, whereas the other taxes were directly on Americans. So, who do you think the media is looking out for, you or foreign powers?
