Will imposing trade tariffs (imports) backfire for the American economy?


As Trump looks to make it harder for countries to import in to America, rather encouraging American made products, will it back fire for the American economy?

Right now, Trumps attitude is dependent on the fact that he thinks everyone is desperate to Trade with America, so he can make it hard and still benefit. Maybe he is really just going to open the way for other economies to trade better between them and end up overtaking America, which becomes left behind

    Not a compelling argument and it doesn't address the China imports versus our exports which are $1 trillion less. China devalues their currency but gets paid in US dollar, then buys parts of America, You want that to continue?
