    With trumps tariffs the tools would simply be tariffed out of business so they HAVE to come home.

    You honestly would spin the worst news about your messiah into a golden fleece

    Who pays for US tariffs on Chinese goods? You do


    As President Donald Trump has upped the ante in his tariff war with China, he’s consistently argued that consumers shouldn’t be worried.

    Trump has slapped China with a 25 percent tariff on $200 billion of goods and floated the possibility of tariffs on $325 billion in additional Chinese goods. China, meanwhile, prepared to impose retaliatory tariffs on $60 billion in American products.

    In remarks at the White House on May 9, Trump said, "So our country can take in $120 billion a year in tariffs, paid for mostly by China, by the way, not by us. A lot of people try and steer it in a different direction. It’s really paid — ultimately, it’s paid for by — largely, by China. And businesses will pour back into our country."

    He reiterated that argument in a May 13 tweetstorm, saying that "there is no reason for the U.S. Consumer to pay the Tariffs, which take effect on China today." Trump suggested some alternatives — buying from suppliers in a country without tariffs, or buying from an American company.

    His repeated message is that Americans shouldn’t worry about the economic impact of his tariffs, couching his claim by saying it's "mostly," "really," "largely" or "ultimately" paid for by China. Despite the hedging words he uses, experts told us the president is wrong to offer that sort of assurance.

    "It is inaccurate to say that ‘countries pay’ tariffs on commercial and consumer goods — it is the buyers and sellers that bear the costs," said Ross Burkhart, a Boise State University political scientist. "Purchasers pay the tariff when they buy popular products. Sellers lose market share when their products get priced out of markets."

    The White House did not respond to an inquiry for this article.

    China has been bending America over for decades. It's about time we had a President willing to play hardball to get a better trade deal.

    Short term pain for long term gain. Something Dimwingers can't comprehend.

    But that is one of the benefits of the tariffs. What's the matter? Don't you want good manufacturing jobs to come back to America, or did you enjoy the high unemployment under a Democrat in the White House?

    You do realize these jobs weren't in China #THREADFAILAGAIN LMAO AT STUPIDITY

    The world’s largest tool manufacturer, Stanley Black & Decker, is bringing its manufacturing operations to North Texas.

    The company announced Wednesday that it is opening a 1.2 million-square-foot distribution center at AllianceTexas in Northlake next month.

    The new Denton County center will service central and southern states and will employ more than 300 people, according to a news release.

    The expansion of our operations in Texas enables us to better serve our customers across the country with a centralized distribution hub for our world-renowned tools, manufactured at our 30 U.S. plants,” said Jeff Ansell, executive vice president and president for Stanley Black & Decker, in a written statement.

    So you don't want to pay for good paying American jobs? You're too cheap, and prefer cheap over Americans working in manufacturing?

    No, Walmart will have to cut its obscene profit margins. The family that owns it is worth $100 billion; none of those parasites ever worked a day in their lives. The unearned privilege of inheritance should have been buried in the rubble of the crumbling castles of Europe where it belongs.

    Ah but you just said they
    And the money goes into America's treasury. See? My article is correct. You Dems. scream over a tax cut, but when taxes are raised, you scream about that too. You can't have it both ways. You are being lied to about tariffs.
    China is the only place that makes things people. Retailers can go elsewhere if doesn't co-operate.

    This is yet another new plant, not the one you are talking about:
    "“It’s going to be advisable to have more manufacturing in the U.S,” Loree said. The CEO also touted the deal as “socially responsible” and touted the environmental benefits of not having to ship items to the U.S. as well as the reduced foreign exchange risk. About a half century ago, Craftsman tools were primarily made in America. Today they’re mostly produced abroad, Loree said. “We believe this is an excellent opportunity to re-Americanize and revitalize this legendary brand,” he added.

    Stanley Black & Decker already operates some 30 manufacturing plants in the United States, and said in a presentation to investors that it has added 1,200 jobs stateside in the last three years, bringing the total to 3,000 workers. The location of the new plant is to be determined."
