    What do yall think? Is Donald Trump really going to do this? Trump is about to impose 20% tarrifs on steel imports and 10% for aluminium? My question is how will China respond? Also EU (particularly Germany)... Trump has said he is willing to impose more tarrifs on cars from Germany etc... what do you all think of this? Who is going to come out on top?

    >Moments ago, President @realDonaldTrump signed an order that imposed tariffs on
    >steel and aluminum imports from all foreign countries

    Actually he seems to have exempted Canada and Mexico and possibly others.

    Trump imposes sweeping tariffs on steel, but excludes Canada, Mexico and maybe other allies

    While only Canada and Mexico were specifically excluded from the tariff orders, Trump and his aides made it clear that other nations also could be exempted from the new duties.

    "We're going to be very flexible," Trump said in responding to a reporter's question at the start of a Cabinet meeting.

    Now basically China produce everything and anything and being the No.1 trading parnter with most countries in the world, and has 10X industry than the US, and the dollar is on life-support of China's finanical support.

    Therefore a full-scale trade war will end the dollar position in the world trading, and will show the world who is actually the real boss in this world, it is actually long overdue. Its an actually good thing, especially considering the fact the alternative is a world war to determine that, the US is alot like some old weak european power before WW2, and China is like the US before WW2, so the replacement is actually long overdue.

    So he fold like a thin paper again? we all know he is showboat and will be "very flexible" when it face any resistance, especially at the time his old bone spurs aches again?
