Who benefits from this one-man, man-made Trade War with China?

The black market. Uh huh ⬇️.
Because we all know this guy ⬇️ doesn't care about things being made in the US.
Yep. This guy ⬇️. Are we now getting why @LincolnsBible @ninaandtito keep calling "The DONald" a mobster?

The more formal name for the black market is Transnational Organized Crime (TOC).

Historical archives are always a help:
"The apparent growing nexus in some states among Transnational Organized Crime groups and elements of government—includ­ing intelligence services—and high-level business figures represents a significant threat to economic growth and democratic institutions."
Ding ding ding!

"Transnational Organized Crime activities can lead to DISRUPTION of the global supply chain, which in turn DIMINISHES economic competitiveness and IMPACTS the ability of U.S. industry and transportation sectors to be resilient in the face of such DISRUPTION."
"Transnational criminal orgs, LEVERAGING their relationships with state-owned entities, industries or state-allied actors, could GAIN influence over KEY commodities markets such as gas, oil, aluminum & precious metals along w/potential EXPLOITATION of the TRANSPORTATION sector."
Side Note: In order to traffick stolen or illegal goods, services, & people you gotta be able to move them - from point A to point B. That's why "transportation" becomes so key - and why the potential of being "exploitated" is great.
