Trump’s Tariff Tantrum: Get Tough or Say Goodbye to American Jobs!

Former President Trump expressed his intention to reintroduce tariffs on foreign goods if elected for a second term.

He cited economic and political benefits of targeting imports, believing they strengthen U.S. industries and provide leverage in international relations.
