I worked in import and export for many years - s/m - tiredmt

The disparity between tariffs placed on our exports and what we charged for imports were ridiculous. Something coming from China could be imported without paying the US anything for import taxes, which we could ship the same item to China and pay outrageous taxes. This has been a problem since the 1980s and no one did anything to correct it, instead gave more and more away to other countries until we had a major trade deficit and paid huge tariffs to the same countries that were getting free imports to the US. China isn't the only country getting the freebies either. It will all even out in time and I don't believe it will hurt our businesses in the long term
