Here’s who Trump’s trade war with China will hurt the most

What’s going on?

President Donald Trump has been keeping his campaign promise to crack down on trade with China.

What else should I know?

Last month, the U.S. imposed steel and aluminum tariffs that mainly targeted China. Trump decided to take it to the next level this week, with the U.S. proposing tariffs on $50 billion worth of Chinese products. On Thursday, Trump threatened to double it to $100 billion. In the meantime, China has been retaliating with its own sanctions.

Catch me up:

Tariffs, or taxes paid on imported or exported goods, are essentially an extra cost that gets passed on the consumer. That means everyday Americans will be spending more to buy everything from cars to electronics to furniture and other products.

Glenn’s take:

“This is going to hurt bad,” Glenn summed it up on today’s show.

China’s retaliatory tariffs will – ironically enough – hit Trump voters the hardest since lower-income and middle-class Americans will feel rising prices the most.

WATCH: This is the Maybach Ultimate Luxury SUV (2020)

Mercedes-Benz is presenting the Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury. The design of the crossover, based on an exclusive high-end saloon and an SUV, follows the philosophy of Sensual Purity.

The show car combines the comfort and typical strengths of both body styles. These include the raised seating position and the athletic looks. The Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury is conceived as an electric car. Thanks to its four compact permanent-magnet synchronous motors, it offers fully variable all-wheel drive. The output from the powertrain is 550 kW (750 horsepower). The flat underfloor battery has a usable capacity of around 80 kWh, producing an NEDC range of over 500 kilometres (according to EPA: over 200 miles). The top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155mph).

The fast-charging function is also convenient: thanks to DC charging based on the CCS standard, the system allows a charging capacity of up to 350 kW. In just five minutes, enough power can be charged to achieve an additional range of around 100 kilometres (62 miles).
