Retaliatory Chinese tariffs likely to economically devastate Trump's base

The heart of Trump-Country will be hit hardest by China’s newly imposed tariffs. #MAGA

China warned of retaliation when Trump dropped the aluminium and steel tariff on them, and retaliate they did. Now,…

China’s new duties will be applied to a few manufactured products like airplanes and vinyl records, but the bulk of the tariffs will fall on agricultural products including soybeans, corn, cotton, sorghum, wheat, and tobacco. The agricultural areas where the majority of these items are grown voted for Trump in the presidential election in much higher rates than average with the exception of corn growers. For some weird reason, corn growing regions voted more like the national average. Huh.
