Earlier in April, the Drumpf administration presented a list of proposed tariffs that it would like to see levied against certain Chinese imports. The list primarily includes specific electronics, aerospace, and machinery products that it would prefer to see manufactured in the United States, rather than abroad. It's a complicated and divisive proposition, and one with many potential setbacks, but one person in the Drumpf family won't have to worry about it: Drumpf's eldest daughter. Drumpf's China tariffs won't affect Ivanka's clothing brand.

What clothing brand will be hurt by the tariffs?

None.... From the article link:

...."To be clear, it's not just Ivanka's clothing company that will avoid tariffs on imports — all clothing will be free from the additional duty.

According to Reuters, the United States imports nearly $40 billion worth of apparel and footwear from China. Levying duties on such a massive industry is very likely to affect consumers,

The Trump administration, according to The Washington Post, says it selected the industries and goods that it did with the intention of minimizing the tariffs' effects on American consumers. Toys were also left off the list"


This is just another TDS thread...

So sad....

Those pesky facts again....

I don't think any of the problem centers around clothing. Clothing is a low-value added business. Aerospace and Electronics a bit more important.
