President Trump delivered on his promise to stop letting America play the sucker to global trade grifters.
He slapped tariffs on two Korean companies, Samsung and LG, who’ve been selling imported washing machines in the U.S. far below the actual cost of producing them. This grants a stay of execution for Americans working at the Whirpool plant in Clyde, Ohio, whose jobs were threatened by foreign-made appliances sold below fair market value. It was amusing to watch the media react in horror, right on cue predicting an imminent and inevitable trade war. They were apparently oblivious to the fact that in 2013 Obama’s Commerce Department imposed tariffs on these same trade cheaters for the very same reason. No forecasts of Armageddon then
