We woke up today to find out that Free Range, Free Trading, Fair Trading President Trump had imposed a 5% tariff on Mexican goods imported into the United States that will grow to 25%. We imported almost $400,000,000,000 of Mexican goods into the US in 2018.
Do the math — 5% equals $20,000,000,000 while 25% equals $100,000,000,000 in tariff revenue.
I have one thing to say — “What took you so damn long?”
I will spare you the factual basis for why the US should punish Mexico other than to say that Mexico is the launching pad for illegal immigration into the United States.
