  2. Really the tariffs on China's goods are merely a restatement of a mutually acceptable trade agreement. You came to us and asked U.S. to give China access to our markets fine. For some reason in 1995 when we signed that WTO agreement we did so knowing that there were no tariffs in it that would regulate violations of the agreement. We trusted China to do the right thing in that regard. They didn't. Who could blame them. Not their fault we signed the agreement that only allowed tariffs on imports into China. Thus China stole intellectual property US companies developed and $600 billion annually from our markets for the last 24-25 years. With Trump now applying the tariffs, instead of loosing money we are going to make approximately $400 billion or so. Tariffs have been used to assist American industries since 1810. Our trade agreement with China was the first one without them. Really Trump wants to stop the punitive tariffs and use them only in case a party to the agreement violates the agreement. Trump wants to continue to allow China access to our markets to sell their goods and services but only if they will give us unfettered access to their markets as well. Bottomline, if they apply tariffs on us why do they and others call it unfair for us to apply the exact same tariffs on them. Whats fair is fair. China is the one potentially pushing the US and other countries towards war . They are the ones demonstrating Imperialistic tendencies.
