Isn't it obvious that America is entitled to charge tariffs on nations products that place tariffs on American products?

This is basic common sense and economics. The American people deserves jobs. I say screw all nations that expect America to allow their crap in without tariffs but, charge us high tariff to sell our products in their nations.
I want to buy American made clothes and electronic at affordable prices.
Any dam politician that disagrees is clearly own by unethical international corporations and accepting brides. I have a message for them. GO TO HELL. You belong behind bars.
We had a thriving Garment center in NY. They destroyed it because lobbyist bribed them. They are criminals.

It'd be nice if it were that simple, but it's not. World trade is very complicated.
If you scroll down that Twitter profile, it's all pro Trump posts.
Most economists outside Trump's circle say these tariffs will result in the loss of many, many more jobs than they create.
We'll see who's telling the truth as it all moves forward.

In many instances compromises are agreed upon. For example, they may come ahead on some product, but we come ahead on some other product or service.
The end result of the whole of the agreement is the important part. If you go after the things that you lose on, you can lose the things that you gain on in retaliation.
If you lose on the whole of the agreement, it needs to be renegotiated. If you come ahead on the whole of the agreement, it probably doesn't.
We can't just pick a product that we're losing ground on, take action, and not expect it to affect the whole of the agreement and the economy.
I agree that international corporations have their sticky fingers in all these agreements, and that they only care about whether it benefits them, and the heck with America, but you can't just focus on a product or industry because you think it will play well with your base. That can end in disaster.
We'll have to see how this all plays out, but right now, the stock markets are taking a big hit over this issue.
Like I say, it's too complicated for me to predict, so all I can do is consider the opinions of the economists. And, as we all know, that's not a sure thing either.

The only fair thing to American workers is to place tariffs on nations that place tariffs on American goods. This is basic economics and common sense.
Unethical international corporations do not like this.

I agree with that sentiment with the exception that when someone treats me badly, I just stay away from them rather than to return the favor.
If I can't avoid them, I try to find a way to shut them down and end the conflict. In some cases, I just tune them out.
I don't know enough about world trade to know what I'd do in any given circumstance.

I believe in treating people as they treat you.
