Tariffs are taxes, and taxes are not political winners

“Trump ought to wrap up a deal as soon as possible and take down all the new tariffs he has imposed” reports Tariffs are not as economically destructive as income taxes are, and they are not as politically unpopular.President Trump has increased taxes on imports — that is what tariffs are — unilaterally.And if tariffs did bring manufacturing back home, the factories would be filled with robots rather than guys from Youngstown, Ohio.He has cut corporate taxes and individual income taxes.
