    Trump says he delayed tariffs because of concerns over Christmas shopping season

    Trump says he delayed tariffs because of concerns over Christmas shopping season

    President Donald Trump on Tuesday said he is delaying some tariffs on Chinese imports ahead of the Christmas season to stem their potential impact on holiday shopping.


    Didn't the asshole say that the Chinese are paying the tariffs? If so how does that affect shopping?
    Is Mexico supposed to be paying it now?

    Wow, I never knew that Christmas shopping was a big thing in China.

    Yes, he did say that China was paying for the tariffs. And his drooling fan base applauded and cheered like the idiots that they are.
    It's disgraceful. I'm going to maybe and I'm looking at it very seriously. We're doing some other things that you probably noticed like some of the very important things that we're doing now. But we're looking at it very seriously because you can't do that. - President Donald J. Trump

    So, IOW, what he's doing is finally admitting that, yes, tariffs actually ARE taxes on consumers, something he's denied from the get-go.

    What a sniveling bitch we have for a POTUS.

    The tariffs were delayed until 15DEC? Doesn’t Trump know that the majority of Xmas shopping happens in the 10 days before the holiday?

    Don't worry, I'm sure he'll capitulate to China again between then and now.

    Maybe he intends to change Christmas to Dec 15th? I sure his stooges would go for it. He could them it was always Dec 15th and the Democrats have been lying about it all these years. Just like they lie about China not paying for the tariffs.

    Most of the goods are already shipped from China well before 15DEC, stocking shelves and warehouses and such.

    True, which makes this just another one of Trump's lies. A transparent one as most of his lies are.
