Inventor and entrepreneur Ron Haliburton: Why Trump's tariffs are a good thing

Ben DaviesRebel Host | Rebel Reel Reviews

Ron Haliburton is an inventor and entrepreneur in the field of arcade games, and beyond. This means he deals with China — and tariffs.

With President Trump eager to impose tariffs on imported goods, and many conservatives complaining about this move, I decided to ask Ron what he thinks of them.

He explains, for example, that places like Brazil have 100 per cent tariffs on many U.S. products, including his own.

All we want is equality, Ron says, and he says Trump is on the right path.

PS: Ron has something to say about Canada/U.S. trade, too!

Well if Trump is leveling the playing field as a defensive measure he must feel the U.S. is being taken advantage of. If it forces everyone to play more fair, how can that be a bad thing.

For example, some may think our Canadian dairy racket is something to preserve for a relatively few number of farmers. I would not be sad to see it broken up. One of the things Bernier wanted to do and I agreed with him. There isn’t a Canadian who lives within 20 miles of the border who doesn’t go to the States to buy cheaper milk. I wouldn’t complain if milk prices were more competitive, I think we’d consume more Canadian milk if they were.

Didn’t a new tariff get smacked onto imported drywall in the last year? Who does that penalize? If Trump’s tit for tat works both ways then it could be a win win instead of a lose lose.

He needs to do something about illegals bringing in the crops for cheap though. I’m, tired of seeing dirt cheap apples, grapes and other produce we grow here being undercut by U.S. produce.
I don’t know how it all works except that it doesn’t seem to these days.

The US has a trade deficit of about $800 billion / year. Trump isn’t going to ignore this.
