Crops that affects sports the industrial midwest where they kind of export you know a lot of cars and other machinery and then it's going to be kind of the energy states texas dakota in those states the us has become a big oil producer you kind of the regions that really stick out as being hit by and what 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 the most in in donald trump's corner you know you're talking about places like the dakotas in the brassica and kansas with the president head of jerry solid majority i mean for the most part even not he kind of in danger of losing you know these are very kind of safe republican states they're mostly being run of it so you know if someone is looking at fishing thinking thinking that maybe it means there's an opportunity for democrat 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 probably getting a pass you know you hear from some voters that they're willing to give you know they want they want the president to have a shot to try this strategy certainly in places you know we're 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 voters have the chance to let it be known if they're happy or not you know voters really that that's their opportunity is going to be the november election 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 zukerman 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 economy was really roaring i mean you know so if you think about this if you think about this trade something 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 got not cheat the tax cuts last year that are choosing some businesses consumers especially wealthy consumers there's 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 and 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 then that some of these farmers are manufacturers feel that this let's call it a fight this fight with china's something that was needed because of unfair practices and there the administration that's certainly the case with the administration has been making i mean you know the people that are exploring in the us the ones that have fared 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 opened 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.
