No. That's the United States. The US is where companies would go produce stuff due to Trump Tariffs and in fact many have done so.
U.S. consumers spent an extra $1.5 billion in the first 12 months on washers/driers after Trump Tariffs went up but only $82 million of it went to the @USTreasury. The rest is US companies spiking prices under excuse of tariffs but they are pocketing the difference, per a study.
According to the study (by a @federalreserve branch and a Chicago University professor), #TrumpTariffs on washers/driers created 1,800 jobs. At $82 million in tariffs, that's a cost of $45,555 per job, BUT the gov collects those $82mm which then gets reinvested in the economy.

Let me give you a #TruthSummary for every corporate media story for the last week and for the next 2 weeks bar some new unforseen crisis:
1. There are no such thing as #TrumpTariffs
Art 1 sec 2 cl 3 delegates that power to Congress
Trump Tariffs are a fiction created by illegal legislation and false policies
Media, pundits, & politicians need to shut up about Trump Tariffs & start talkg about #CongressionalTariffs
2. #Kavanaugh will not be the "death of womens rights" no matter what @SenFeinstein says. Kavanaugh will not be king and for goodness sakes, supports #Obamacare!!

If you, like me, cannot point to a single thing @RepFrenchHill has done for the benefit of his constituents in #AR2 then you owe it to yourself and everyone else in the seven county area to vote for @clarketucker this November. #arpx #Vote #Midterms2018
.@RepFrenchHill has voted to end coverage for pre-existing conditions. He doesn't care whether or not you can afford to see a doctor, or even if your health insurance will cover a visit. He does not care about #Arkansans #AR2 #ByeFrench #VoteThemOut #arpx
.@RepFrenchHill supports @realDonaldTrump #ConcentrationCamps for migrant children, infants, and toddlers. He refuses to speak up about these egregious #HumanRights violations. #Arkansas deserves a better, more humane representative in #AR2 - @clarketucker is that person! #Vote

1) Haven't been much of a savant on trade policy, but since it was Trump's winning issue I proceeded to educate myself. As a result, it is clear to me that Trump's 25% steel and 10% aluminum tariffs are vital for our national security…
2) Let me explain. The US has been hemorrhaging jobs in these heavy industrial areas to third world countries for the last few decades, largely because those countries still run on cheap labor and zero regulation whereas US manufacturers don't #TrumpTariffs
3) For example, average hourly wages in china are about $3.50/hour, which is ironically higher than it was even five years ago. The government is dictatorial and is very close with the business conglomerates that run the economy, unlike the US…
