    I think Nvidia being a U.S. company would be exempt, like Apple whose phones are almost entirely manufactured in China is exempt from the tariffs. Although not sure how this affects Nvidias partners (Asus, MSI, etc).

    Hopefully a wiser Congress will get elected and end our National Nightmare. Oh and they can get rid of the 'Trump Import Tax' too. That's what it is for all you folks who claim to hate taxes.

    The US started this round of tariffs so that argument is bs .China just reciprocated and that pipe dream that the US is the largest economy isn't born out by facts but facts aren't this administration's strong suit.

  11. The Chinese already had tariffs in place, not just for US goods, but for all non-Chinese goods. Why is it not fair for the US to place tariffs on goods from China?

    https://2016.export.gov/china/doingbizinchina/index.asp

    export.gov is a pretty good source for what it takes to export to other countries, All I have ever purchased or sold internationally has been intellectual property, so the rules are a bit different for goods. I am not looking to start a fight, I am asking why the US should allow their goods to come in without tariffs, when they do not reciprocate? I am for fair trade, but only if it is fair for both sides. I also have a strong distaste for the Chinese government, or any oppressive dictatorship.

    Well if recent election results are anything to go by then a blue wave may indeed sweep the legislative branch, possibly taking both the House and Senate. It's just like up here in Canada, where large by-elections wins by the Liberals paved the way for a rout of the Conservatives in the next general election. People can only put up with so much, especially when it starts hitting their wallets - frankly, I can't imagine paying 25% more for my PC parts (as if the DRAM and mining apocalypse wasn't enough...). $870 for a 1180 and $2250 for a 2990WX - ridiculous.

    Of course they did that isn't the issue he raised tariffs on things not usually taxed that high which they responded in kind so there you go he started a trade war that's going to cost the ordinary smuck money. I'm not fighting just pointing out you've got a slanted view of what's actually happening. This stuff appeals to his base because they don't think it through. It's all sound bytes leading up to mid terms smoke and mirrors again.
