The key is that it wouldn't last. China relies on us far more than we rely on them.

He's an idiot. The reason the U.S. doesn't make the cheap goods we outsource to China is because our workforce has more valuable things to do. His economic policies would put us back 50 years and kill our competitive edge.

Why should the guy building tech products or Ford trucks spend their time making 50 cent products?

So de-incentivize working with US companies? All that does is raise the cost for the regular buyer. It doesn't do anything to "create more jobs" here.

That was my point, they make for from the products the US currently exports than they ever would with the ones we outsource to China.

We aren't competing with China. It's South Korea, Japan, and the other tech countries we are working aga it's.

Rephrased: U.S. factory workers are better suited for building complicated machines/technology than they are the cheap products we outsource to China. If we tried to bring those factories back to the US then we would be wasting the talents of our workforce.

Since they are a communist nation they won't be able to come close to that.

Built in China, designed in the good ol USA. Even Japan isn't as good at inventing as the US. They are only good at reinventing US products. (Tv, compact car, consoles, computer). All started in the US but improved in Japan.

It would only hurt us because it would get overblown. We are innovators and have ties to basically every nation on earth. Reproducing what they make wouldn't be difficult, but it would raise the prices on a lot of the "cheap"goods. What would kill us is their influence on the international market.

China relies far more on us than we do them. We outsource the lowest end of our products (that we could easily get by without) and they rely on us for innovation.
