Former Gov. John Hickenlooper, D-Colo., announced he is ending his presidential campaign, but he did not rule out running for Colorado’s Senate seat.
Mark: The Chinese have long protected their own domestic products with tariffs that range normally from 25 to 30 percent, but sometimes reach 40 percent. It should be pointed out that Japan and South Korea do the same thing, too, and have been doing so for over half a century. So, too, have most of the countries in Europe. Only, we in the United States, totally bought into the beliefs of Keynesian economics that the greatest good should be buying the cheapest product produced anywhere in the world. China, Japan, South Korea, and European countries have long understood that protecting one's domestically-produced goods is something that must be done while at the same time hoping that one can purchase inexpensive products abroad. Americans are starting to wake up to the realities that blindly purchasing the most cheaply produced goods have cause the textile, manufacturing, and steel industries - among others - to go out of business in the United States. What Donald Trump is attempting to do, not only makes sense, it's essential if we are to protect American business so that once again we have a thriving economy! President Trump, is much more economically knowledgeable than the Left ever will acknowledge! He might actually be America's last and best hope against China and the rest of the world! Tariffs will cost us money, but it's a price that we must pay if we want to bring back American jobs and support American business!
