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.

Bill O'Reilly: How corrupt media twisted Joe Biden Ukraine scandal onto Trump

Bill O'Reilly gives his take on whether or not President Trump DID promise or threaten the President of Ukraine for dirt on Joe Biden, and whether or not the action is grounds for impeachment. But O'Reilly explains that either way, the media has demonstrated its corruptness yet again by manipulating the story away from a scandal for Joe and Hunter, and towards a potential, rumored wrongdoing by Donald Trump.

The Fed, banks printing money to 'prevent' trouble: Recession WILL come soon

Glenn discusses the current state of the economy with author of "Zero Hour," Harry Dent. He says the federal reserve is still funding big banks daily to increase their excess reserve, signaling that something is wrong with the system. Dent says the banks printed money back in the 1930s to climb out of the Great Depression, which only created an aftershock that was even worse. Banks and the Fed are doing the same thing today, so will the coming economic crisis be worse than the 2008 recession? Economist Dent says it's possible, and that it could come as early as 2020.
