Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Does this mean politically if anything right now well it's hard to say i mean for one thing a lot of the places being hit are the places that were kind of the most in in donald trump's corner you know you're talking about places like the dakotas in the brassica and kansas went the president had a very solid majority i mean good most part beat not state kind of endanger of losing you know these are very safe republican states through mostly being the brunt of it so you know i if someone is looking at this and thinking thinking oh maybe it means there's an opportunity for democrats that's probably not the right take away from this map okay so it's not like even necessarily he's getting a pass at this point this is just i think some i think some voters are properly getting past you know you certainly hear from some voters that they're willing to give you know they want they want the president to have a shot try this strategy certainly in places that you know were kind of very strong trump counties you're going to be more likely to hear that sentiment all right so if there's going to be pushed back i guess when does it begin well i mean we'll find out in november i mean that's when voters have the chance to let it be known if if they're happy or not you know voters really uh that that's their opportunity is going to be the november elections that's when wall that's for sure i mean we might see some things in polling but but really until people vote we're speaking with wall street journal reporter justice who brin he's written a piece entitled chinese tariffs hit trump counties harder what else do you think will take away from here is i think i read one point since the economy is on decent footing it might take longer for some of these tariff impacts to hit yeah that's absolutely right i mean when this started was really roaring i mean you know if you think about this if you think about this trade war something that's doing a little bit of damage to the economy but on the other hand economy that's been growing for nine years now has really gotten on its feet there would be a tax cuts that are juicing some businesses that use some consumers especially wealthy consumers a lot of strength in the economy right now from those factors and so you know that means just kind of an offset for this trade war staff and so you know right now if you look at your role economy is still looks pretty it's still looks pretty decent so it's probably going to be a while before you start thinking about this trade war the kind of key driver what's going on in the economy so is there a belief leaf then that some of these farmers are manufacturers feel that this let's call it a fight fight with china's something that was needed because of unfair practices and there the administration that's certainly the case that the administration has been making i mean you know the people that are exporting in the us or the ones that have heard pretty well with the current system that we have you know farmers benefited quite a lot from being able to having having that chinese market be open and being able to export to the chinese market so i i don't know but i mean you know there is a deep sense especially held by the president that this was an unfair trade relationship and that we needed to do something really dramatic in the united states to shake it up and so we're we're seeing that play out now thanks josh wall street journal reporter josh zoom brin it is twenty minutes now in front of the.
