President Trump thinks that his tough stand on tariffs makes him look strong. In truth, as the American public will find out in months and years to come, it really shows his ignorance of the rules of international commerce.

It is ironic that his stance will penalize most strongly the very people who support him.

As our economy falters, his legions will find others to blame, but they will pay the price.
