My company, and myself, have long tried to buy American and from countries who support basic human rights and environmental policies.  I could abandon that policy just based on the idea that it would piss Trump off but I'm pretty sure he really doesn't care.

I spoke to one of our reps the other day, and she told me that so far they were eating the tariffs, but soon they would be passing them on. Good thing that check from the Chinese government is in the mail!

I am betting that Trump and Ivanka won't do what he is demanding other US companies do.  Him and his design stealing daughter will still buy Chinese products.  It is a prime case of "Do what I say, not what I do."
