    I take it's his way of saying that he will cover the cost using the revenue generated by the tariffs .

    When our POTUS said China will be paying farmers $16 billion, I think he meant tariffs from Chinese products imported into the U.S. will pay $16 billion to aid American farmers.

    Tariffs on imports of Chinese products in the U.S. are economically punishing China for their requirement that non-Chinese owned businesses hand over their most prized technology to state-owned Chinese companies in order for non-Chinese owned companies to have access to the Chinese market. Eventually, the tariffs will force China to open up their markets without the Chinese stealing technology away from non-Chinese owned businesses.

    We Americans need to be supportive of our farmers in this trade war against the intellectual property thieves and technology thieves who are unfair trade practitioners from China as well as these Chinese being among the world's greatest polluters and child labor slave drivers. We should support our farmers as well our environment by way of being Impossible burger consumers; the impossible burger has a plant-based patty practically indistinguishable from a beef patty.

    Trump's tariffs against China are designed to put economic pressure on China to encourage her opening up access to her markets for American companies without them having to freely give away their trade secrets, technology, and intellectual property to China. Trump's tariffs are generating billions of dollars in tax revenue, some of which is given to American farmers for compensation of lost agriculture sales to China during the U.S. trade war effort of getting China to end her unfair trade practices against American businesses.

    Guess who's paying the tariffs, Americans.
    Nice alternative facts, Trump lies for a living. And is still a failure.

    Of course, tariffs are a sales tax on imported goods, but Trump's tariffs on China do have the intent of discouraging China from engaging in unfair trade practices such as denying businesses access to Chinese markets unless these companies surrender their valuable trade secrets, intellectual property, and technology to China.

    We should appreciate how our POTUS who is taking a stance against the unfair Chinese trade practitioners. ....:)

    It's not wise to have faith in a career confidence man. POTUS has zero clue as to what he's doing. Which is why experts are against his policies toward China.
