Here's a message, Donny Dumbarse..... When you lose the Chamber, you know that your toilet is flushing.....
The only good thing in all of this is that the countries involved are essentially doing the US a favor by intentionally targeting Trump voters with their tariffs. They're doing it for a variety of reasons I suspect, spite being the obvious one, but also IMO to send a message that there are consequences to elections. Oh wait, that's what Ryan and McConnell say isn't it?
Trump won an election in part by cheating, and in part by promising things like these tariffs, he's now doing them, and the people who voted him in are now going to pay the price themselves, well except for Russia, Israel and Cambridge Analytica.

Sophistication, thy name is not Donald J. Trump.
Manufacturer's notice from one of the products I sell..
Here you go boys and girls.... virtually everything you buy is moved by
pallet jacks.... not to worry, it's only 20%
I've bought a manual pallet jack before for work but I have no idea what a powered one costs? 20% more is that 500 bucks, 1000?
Battery operated start about about $3k for a basic unit and they go up steeply from there so $5 hundy then up. Plus the distributor will mark it up by his usual percentage at the higher cost so it's actually more than that.
Sure it's just a coincidence.
Owning teh libtards.
Tariffs aren't a tax on consumers like @GuernseyCard says... oh wait!!!
Edit to add: This is what you get when you put tariffs in the middle of the supply chain
and not finished products, imo
The "idiot tax."
I was getting my oil changed the other day and one of their rollup doors was broken, one of the springs was literally broken in half and the long cables were screwed up. The repair guy was there and he said they were unable to do anything without new springs. These doors were old enough that they had to order the springs and he was telling them that all of their suppliers had delays right now because they were all waiting on the tariffs.
They were afraid to quote customers and then have the tariff come in and they have to eat the increase themselves.
These guys were having to back cars in from the front on this one bay in order to do work on that side, because they couldn't get the door up to drive in from the front.
The guy who did my car told me their business was being dramatically impacted because it took them longer to do it, people were simply not waiting they were just going somewhere else.
Broken springs are an everyday service call for us. I do service calls on car dealerships and this is a common problem. The shop doors open 200-300 times a day and they have to be operating or they freak out. In the case you're talking about, we have a way to clamp the spring back together, put the cables back on and get the door to operate while we order the spring. There are times when we can't fix the spring for temp use and that does make a problem.
Quoting a price is not so much a problem for me... they tell me to fix it and send a bill. They know what springs cost +/-.
btw, I got a notice yesterday from a supplier that delivery times cannot be guaranteed for the remainder of July... Amazon Prime has basically taken over the shipping world with their Prime week... go figure.
