Tariff Wars

No one wants a trade war but China and the U.S. move closer to the brink
As the U.S. trade deficit continues to increase in red ink
Chinese theft of our intellectual property not curtailed but running free
Americans still buying Chinese goods like a drunken sailor on a spree
Trump has clearly said enough
The carrot doesn’t work time to be stick tough
India is also about to feel Trump’s free and fair trade wrath
Ending India’s preferential trade status is his desired path
Mexico has also come in the cross hairs for its failure to halt the refugee from Central America flow
Tariffs to rise 5% each month that may put the world on a recession path to go
Free and fair trade will benefit us all if a two way street
A level playing field allowing us without loss of IP to compete
Time to endure short term pain
In exchange of long term gain
