“Thinking that tariffs are the magical tool that is bringing the entire supply chain, the entire ecosystem, to the United States is a task that’s larger than even Apple could accomplish,” Wiens told VICE News.

Rotflmao vice has steady gone down the wrong path. They are more concerned with being edgy shock jocks that telling the story without involving their personal opinion.

Vice makes BIAS news. Don't always believe what you here or see from them!

The United States used to be producers and now we are consumers. In short, we are fucked, and while I have no use for Trump, he can't be blamed for the situation. This Trickle Down (Trickle on) economics began in the Reagan Administration and continued right through until today.

A vice content that isnt complete marxist propaganda? Is such a thing possible?
One thing i learned many years ago, is don't rely upon another person's opinion for anything and to not hang onto their every word for guidance or controversy.
Where is the ten thousand manufacturing plants and the five hundred power plants waiting their chance to join the power! Hey the price of Coke and Pepsi has sky rocketed to over four dollars or a 100% per twelve pack is it just so eight hundred aluminum jobs could be saved! Hey this tariffs generated cost hits every household across this nation!
Yikes. This is why I am getting my CCNA, also doing some powershell work, going to learn linux, and some languages.
America soon will be no super power... Because they accepted their defeats to China

Trump is a fraud and the effects will be felt soon

Trump gets off on trampling the law, the environment, peace agreements, common decency and common sense.

Hi I'm an out sider NZ looking in, I agree what Trump is doing, he's balancing the books, the people who are not happy with this are the one's who do not see the long term plan, this is were China's 50- 100 year plan works, I'm sure the government will comed back with solutions for the short fall.
Support your leader, he does know what he's doing.

Good Luck America
Brandy Wasay
I totally agree with TRUMP. There are many other things to consider and this is the reason why Americans will end up the winner in this Trade War. The majority of Americans are just short-sighted. They just don't realize that if there is no trade war, China would have already won.
Cactus Tweeter
Trump may save a few aluminum worker jobs but he is screwing farmers, technology workers. He's going to cause more jobs to be lost then those he's gained back.
mitt nival
This is more than 5 months old, and Trump not only has not won his "easy to win" trade war but also has added more consumer products to his new federal tax scheme, tariffs.

How soon will Trump's new federal tax scheme, tariffs. take back his his "tax cuts" for working Americans ?

This needs to be updated !!!!!

I wish all those US companies get ban in China. So they can find new n better and democracy county to invest.
