As noted by Eisenstein, the tariff war with China is hurting “the industrial heartland” of America the most, where these vehicles are made. For example, says Eisenstein, because of the tariffs, Ford has had to add thousands of dollars to the base price of a Ford Mustang. American consumers are paying for Trump’s tariffs, not China. Mary Papenfuss, writing for Huffington Post, found that “President Donald Trump’s trade war cost American businesses and consumers $3 billion a month last year in higher prices” citing a study by the Federal Reserve Bank in New York in partnership with Princeton and Columbia Universities. Trump once said that “trade wars are good and easy to win.” But American car manufacturers and farmers are having a difficult time finding anything good in Trump’s trade policies.
