Trump’s tariffs will cost every US household about $800

Consumers are already paying up to 225 percent more for imported washing machines, thanks to tariffs imposed last year, and a report from Oxford Economics estimated that tariffs could cost every American household about $800.

Those costs will hit cleaning products, diapers, food, luggage and mattresses in about a month, and additional tariffs could raise costs on camping equipment, clothing, shoes and sporting goods.

Consumer electronics — including computers, TVs and video game consoles — will also get more expensive. A new iPhone could cost about $160 more, according to analysts.

“If you were planning a large purchase six weeks from now, you may want to make that purchase today,” French said.

Small price to pay for American success and free trade.

Thank God we finally have a president who is fighting for all Americans.

redistribution of wealth from middle class to rich farmers. We pay more for products and pay our taxes for big farm give-aways to farmers unable to sell any crops. Socialism.

You can no longer buy aftermarket Brake Rotors or Drums Made In USA. Even if it says made in the USA they are getting slugs from china and machining them here.

Are OEM rotors made in the USA still? If so i will just buy them there.

I went to my local NAPA to buy new rotors for my parents car, It used to be that you could spend some extra money and buy NAPA gold rotors and get nice quality Made in the USA rotors. No longer my friends. Some vendors claim USA manufacturing, but they’re selling foreign-made blanks machined (slotted and/or drilled) in the USA. The local Napa guy was upset too, he said there are no aftermarket USA rotors to be had.

Brake rotors are no longer manufactured in the United States or Canada for aftermarket consumption. The “domestic” brands you may be familiar with (Raybestos,Wagner, Bendix, Centric, Motorcraft, Delco) are all manufactured in China/Taiwan. The plants and foundries that used to manufacture for aftermarket in the US and Canada have discontinued production. In addition, the European brands (Brembo, ATE, TRW, etc.) are sourcing a significant portion of their aftermarket rotors from China and Taiwan. Even Mexican rotor manufacturing is practically nonexistent today.

machining a slug does not mean putting slots and holes in it

You sound angry and upset -good. Stay here and wait for more things to be posted that upset you. Do it all day ok.

bTW

Me:"foreign-made blanks machined (slotted and/or drilled) in the USA"

You: "machining a slug does not mean putting slots and holes in it."

One of these things is not like the others - never said what you said. But please, instruct us on your superior knowledge of manufacturing, you sure as fuck cannot read or understand diction, grammar or content. Also, get really upset about all this ok.
