100 thoughts on “Were the Trump tariffs a price worth paying for the China trade deal?

  1. How many farms went under? How many farmers commited suicide? How much more money did Americans pay for products because of this? Trump again causes a major issue and then claims to have solved the problem. Thiscdeal is a sham like thevdeal he said ye had with Kim. Wait for it.

  2. USMCA IS NO DIFFERENT FROM NAFTA. Trump's people just polished a turd and gave it a new name. The comking year will be horrific economically for the US.

  3. Why do the so called economic 'experts' refer to Tariffs "Trade War" of US against China, wonder what's their motif, are they saying it's MrPresident DONALD JOHN TRUMP's vendetta against China ??? or they're just dumb DEMonRATORS' spokemen ?

  4. There is no trade deal and the tariffs are a horrible idea.
    The best we can say about Trump’s allegedly “historic” deals is that they won’t make his unnecessary trade wars worse

  5. Tariffs are still in place they just not increased because phase 1 has been completed. Tariffs do not hurt the USA!!!

  6. Trump's trade deal accomplishes nothing, and doesn't even get us back to where we were before he blew up trade and cost American business and consumers billions of dollars.

    Trump's mentality is this. He stands on the balcony of a 20 story hotel room dangling a baby by the ankle, waiting for a crowd of concerned spectators to appear. Once they appear, he pulls the baby back inside and comes out claiming to be a hero who saved the baby's life. Dude is a moron and the worst deal maker of all time.

  7. There is a way to see if its good or bad, the Democrats don't like it and won't talk about it. to me that means it is a good thing plus, this is phase one.

  8. let's see…
    Billions in soy beans? gone…
    Farms bailed out for 28 billion…but only big rich farms get the money….oops…there goes your farm

    Harley Davidson….all jobs gone…
    AT&T who got yuge tax breaks…all jobs gone and made the workers train their own replacements!
    Coal miners not getting paid in over a month are blocking coal trains from leaving…
    Carrier…all jobs gone…
    etc…

  9. Probably the biggest payoff from the tariffs and the trade agreement, is the fact that the Chinese dont own our politicians any more. President Donald John Trump has ended the corruption and bribery between Americas corrupt politicians and Communist China.

  10. How about hearing from trade unions and actual small business people, instead of the Chamber of Com?

  11. Tariffs were and still are worth it in my opinion I really dont buy to much of anything Chinese so there it is there and it really help our farmers so yes it was all worth it.

  12. God why is there so much negativity? Patriots, please humble yourselves and be grateful to have a great President like Donald J. TRUMP!🙏❣

  13. Absolutely I always check the product comes from, if from China I don't buy it. It's money for military equipment for China to be super power. Grabbing territories is China doing in ASIA. SEE WHAT IS GOING IN HONG KONG, TAIWAN, PHILIPPINES AND OTHER COUNTRIES IN ASIA. COMMUNIST CHINA TOOK ADVANTAGE WHEN AMERICAN COMPANIES WENT CHINA.

  14. These were punitive tariffs which were meant to bring China to the table. The idea of tariffs isn't a bad thing as the framers of our constitution agreed tariffs were indeed the choice of funding for the federal government. I would go as far as to institute a tariff system and eliminate federal income taxes for all individuals and corporations. President Trump already has this style of funding in mind, look who's portrait hangs in the oval office, Andrew Jackson.

  15. THOSE OF YOU THAT SAY TARIFFS WERE A BAD IDEA AND ARE HOPING TO GET TRUMP OUT OF OFFICE, IF IT HAPPENS, YOU WILL BE MOVING OUT OF YOUR TWO-HUNDRED-THOUSAND DOLLAR HOMES AND INTO CARDBOARD BOXES
    AND SCREAMING YEA WE GOT RID OF TRUMP!!! OH HOW DUMB THOU ART!!!

  16. Tariff’s have long been a political lever. In the early history of the US this mechanism made the country financially successful. Nice to see it still works!

  17. So we're just renaming NAFTA, and getting a big kick out of it like it's something wonderful! Both Canada and Mexico don't deserve to have a treaty with us if they're going to let illegal aliens come across our common borders

  18. Not sure what to think yet. I feel like China signed just cut the tariffs and buy time to turn their economy around. They aren't known for playing fair.

  19. …they aren't gone yet, so why act like they aren't still going to influence the economy? We'll see in a year or two.

  20. But Agriculture is now going to be making 50 billion a year where as agriculture wasn’t making anything in the last forty years .

  21. Maybe Trump can get China to bail out the banks in the next recession, since we keep having to borrow $1T more per year keeping this Ponzi scheme going.

  22. As soon as he said … “from the US Chamber of Commerce” 🤣😂🤣😂 Well well well .. he represents the traitors who created the mess, have LIED to us for nearly 40 years, selling out America to LINE THEIR OWN pockets and the pockets of the CorruptOcrats. Does anyone wonder what he thinks about President Trump ? Freeze frame the interview .. both of these men are faces of the SWAMP.

  24. ITS NOT ROCKET SCIENCE, TRUMP is the FIRST PRESIDENT Since JFK who is NOT OPEN TO GETTING GREASED BY FOREIGN INTERESTS… Although ISRAEL is one exception (JFK tried to shut their corrupt maneuvers down and did not work out too well for him)

  25. First of all go to hell Fox, you're just a monster in the middle of the common citizen and the truth. But my other point is so what? Who gives a crap about China's products. Lets not talk about all of the poisons in their food. Toxic children's toys. Their meats should be avoided. That country has no regulations on anything be exported, even though the say, they are very concerned and go after the crooks. Yes, that's true, but they have to keep arresting people. Every time their government turns around they have to arrest someone for poor business ethics. They are second only to Google, worse spies on the planet. Let them go. Force companies to come home. Let that nation drift out of orbit.

  26. This CoC politician would rather have the USA taken advantage of permanently than make a change to STATUS QUO.. He should resign

  27. FOR 2 YEARS , USA SAYS DE-COUPLE , BOYCOTT CHINA, HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH COMMIES , SEND IN AIRCRAFT CARRIERS.
    TESLA BUILT A BRAND NEW PLANT IN SHANGHAI ROLLING OUT TESLA 3, TELLING LABOUR UNIONS TO SUCK IT.
    AND USA IS BOOKING A RETURN FLIGHT TO COMMIE LAND, JUST LIKE NBA.

  28. In the USMCA agreement. Neither Canada nor Mexico, can make a trade deal with any Country that we do not approve of. For the listed things in the deal. So , I'm thinking we are America First. Which is how it always should be. The details are how you rip us all off.

  29. Ha ha! Trying to save face with his supporters, why didn't China's president show up, China can do business around the world, soy beans and pigs can be raised in South America or africa.

  30. Personally I was hoping for full on sanctions and collapse of the Communist. It worked for the Soviets. Should work against the CCP. Besides they have never been fair with US.

  31. And this will pay debt down…….way down… but we don’t hear about that….just like Trump donating his salary to America in all different areas.. nope won’t hear about that groom the jealous lefty 🐀

  32. Was it worth the cost? Well what was the cost of the last 40 years doing nothing? compare that to his "1% decline" to get a deal that benefits the next 40 years going forward.

  33. President Trump will go down in history as the greatest President ever alongside Washington, Lincoln, Jefferson and other
    great presidents. Whereas Obama will be relegated to the back pages of history.Move over President Washington, Roosevelt, and Jefferson.  President Trump will take his place on Mount Rushmore.  Yes Nancy President Trump will be impeached forever, it will be talked about in universities in constitutional law, bars breakfast tables. Debated time and time again President Trump  that he can go down as the biggest impeachmentflop ever.  Nobody will remember Nancy Policy
    10 years from now.

  34. Everyone should be scared of China and its sneaky ways. Everyone should be on guard when President Xi and his commie sycophants come to your country bearing gifts and fake smiles. It's a trick no doubt as China's goal is to create a new world order with President Xi giving orders from Beijing. Unfortunately for some countries it is too late to heed this warning. Look what happened recently to some of the Pacific Islands when they accepted President Xi's gifts. And most recently let's look at Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka accepted gifts from President Xi and now China owns it ports. Cambodia's current President is now nothing more than a puppet being manipulated from Beijing after Cambodia president accepted "gifts" from President Xi. And now Myanmar is teetering on the edge of accepting gifts from China…Myanmar has suddenly become suspicious of the so called gifts because of what has happened to Sri Lanka and other places that were fooled by the gifts and phony smiles of the sneaky commie Chinese who came calling at their door. There are already Chinese spies planted all over the world, mainly in our most prized institutions of learning and government. BEWARE!!

  35. he has got to be a democrat ,his view is a globalist view not someone who gives a crap of american worker ,im ure he would blow obama ,his idol

  36. America does not need trade with countries like Mexico or China to prosper. It simply moves wealth from the pockets of workers to the pockets of wealthy investors is all free trade accomplishes.

  37. DONALD TRUMP IS A GENIUS, JUST LOOK AT HIS ACCOMPLISHMENTS IN 3 YEARS,YOU WILL SEE A LOT MORE VICTORIES IN THE FUTURE,. IF THE DEMS STAY OUT OF HIS WAY AND THE MEDIAS STOP WITH THEIR FAKE NEWS REPORTS…..SAVE AMERICA,..TRUMP IN 2020…REMEMBER TRUMP IS BEING GUIDED BY THE ALMIGHTY, WHO ANOINTED HIM IN OFFICE BY THE PEOPLES VOTE… GOD BLESS THE PRESIDENT AND YOUR COUNTRY!!!!!

  38. Just read the title–not gonna watch something with such a stupid title. Tariffs put billions into our treasury. So what price is this you think we're paying???

  39. Their will not be a phase 2 democratic will undo all dumpster trump doing to better the real workings class people, undo the tax cuts, get the rich to pay their taxes

  40. You can NOT continue a 500 Billion trade imbalance forever, and that was what the old plan did. Even if this new deal is not perfect it is far better than what we had.
