Got it. So let me see if I have this straight.

You're going to buy from WalMart, probably the corporation MOST AT FAULT FOR OUR CURRENT SITUATION WITH CHINESE IMPORTS, and contribute to their profits while believing you're making a stand for the little guy.

LG, Hyundai and Kia sucks.
Although LG does have a nice new 24bit sound with stereo mics that are nice. And Samsung is planning on going all Windows 10 on all of their future Galaxy products, their Tablets already are. I might consider LG Tablets and Phones if they keep innovating and using the Android system.

I might buy an iPhone if they get rid of Tim Cock and make them in America.

I have been buying American since NAFTA.

Since 1993 I have paid:

~ $3000 more for my US made clothes, shoes (New Balance, etc). Suits from Burberry are not made in US anymore

~ $30K less for my cars (Ford mustang, Jeep Cherokee, Ford Escape)

~ Most of my electronics are from Korea (Samsung) and Taiwan (TSMC). Lastest computer is Chinese.

~ $10000 more for us made appliances (Whirlpool, DACOR), furniture(Flexsteel), kitchen gear, pots/pans, tools.

So I have a net saving of over $20000 for buying american. If the US would drop its penchant for foreign cars, buy clothes, appliances, and some items from the US, we could rectify our trade and deficit without tariffs.

My ford is not as nice as a BMW, but when I go fishing, I can run up against saplings and just dont care. Plus the Ford is much more reliable.

Trump is dead wrong on this, hopefully he comes to his senses on this other wise it might turn into another Smoot Hawley.
