President Donald Trump doubled down Friday morning on his plan to impose massive tariffs on China and the European Union, Tweeting that the United States should be on a “level playing field’’ with countries that have been “manipulating their currencies.”
Trump also zeroed in on Canada in a 3rd tweet, writing: “Farmers have been on a downward trend for 15 years. The price of soybeans has fallen 50% since 5 years before the Election. A big reason is bad (terrible) Trade Deals with other countries. They put on massive Tariffs and Barriers. Canada charges 275% on Dairy. Farmers will WIN!
Earlier, President Trump said he was willing to tax every product imported from China.
In a TV interview President Trump said, “I’m willing to go to 500,” referring to the $505.5-B in goods imported from China in 2017.
Have a terrific weekend.
