No, but that's always the case. If some country charges punitive tariffs, who's going to suffer? Certainly not the targeted country as such. What we have here is really a rather enlightened and benevolent approach.

It's not really taking money, is it, you're just selling less. I don't see how that's so different from the steel mill owner who suddenly can't sell anything in the US because they've decided to charge 100% or so import dues.

That's just crazy talk. Not gonna happen.
