Nope, China Still Isn’t Paying Those Tariffs!

Yesterday, President Donald Trump warned that tariffs on Chinese imports may still go up “very substantially” while continuing to insist that China is paying the tariffs. That’s…not accurate, as Katherine Mangu-Ward, Nick Gillespie, Peter Suderman, and special guest star Eric Boehm discuss in today’s podcast. We also check in with Congress’ lonely libertarian Rep. Justin Amash (R–Mich.), who is positioning himself as the not-so-loyal Republican opposition. We ask whether anyone can even trust their eyes anymore as the president calls off infrastructure week in a fit of pique over a standoff with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D–Calif.) and tweets a doctored video. And we wonder what the E.U. election results mean for the future of populist authoritarianism.
