    That's simple: Because the cost of the tariffs is coming out of the consumer's pocket regardless of geographic location. If no single country were to challenge the US, and despite pleas to do otherwise, they are, then those in the geographic location that the tariffs affect would be the ones paying for it. However, since all nations have promised to impose their own tariffs, every consumer will pay more. You might as well call these tariffs YaGT - Yet another Government Tax.

    (Edit) All these years Chinese and the rest of the world have been using and relying on our CPUs, would that makes the whole world unpatriotic? How about all of us (the USA included) using ARM chips, which was British until recently when it was purchased by a Japanese firm, in our phones? ARM is licensed to the US, Korean, and Chinese chip designers. We need to look beyond border lines to advance.
