The fallout from president trump's tariffs and china's counter tariffs which formerly went into effect on friday we'll have the greatest impact on the us counties that voted mr trump into office the us tariffs on china will initially hit about thirty four billion dollars of goods with plans in place to raise that total to fifty billion more on the fallout from wall street journal reporter josh zoom brin josh what have you found this looked at kind of county by county across the entire united states where are industries that are gonna get hit by the tariffs that china has just put into place in response to the tariffs that trump initiated and so we have kind of a map here that shows the kind of really detailed geography of how these terrorists are hitting and what you see when you look at it this trade war is really playing out in the american heart i mean the places that are really going to take the economic kit from this are really going to be places the great plains where they produce you know so much of the crops that affect the industrial midwest where they kind of export you know a lot of cars and other machinery and then it'd be kind of the energy states texas dakota in those states the us has become a big oil producer regions that really stick out has been 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 nebraska and kansas wake the president head of jerry solid majority i mean good moves part bs are not state the kind of in danger of losing you know these are very of republican states there must be run it so you know i if someone is looking at this and 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 i think some i think some voters copy getting a pass you know you certainly hear from some voters that they're willing to give you know they want it they went to president to have a shot to try this strategy certainly in places that you know we're kind of very strong from 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 happier not you know voters really that that's their opportunity is going to be the november election that's when wall that's for sure we might see some things in polling but really until people vote we're speaking with wall street journal reporter justice newborn he's written a piece entitled chinese tariffs hit trump counties harder what else do you think will take away from here i 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 the economy was really roaring i mean you know so if you think about this if you think about this trade war something that's doing a little bit of image for the economy but on the other hand you happen to konami that's been growing for nine years now has really got feet tax cuts last year 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 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 is something that was needed because of unfair practices and they're ministration that's certainly the case that the administration has been making i mean he know.
