Fox News host Chris Wallace on Sunday reminded Larry Kudlow, director of the National Economic Council, that Americans will be forced to pay for the tariffs that President Donald Trump is putting on Chinese goods.
“It’s not China that pays tariffs, it’s the American importers, the American companies that pay what is in effect a tax increase,” Wallace explained. “And oftentimes passes it on to U.S. consumers.
“Fair enough,” Kudlow replied. “In fact, both sides will pay.”
“If it’s a tariff on goods coming in, the Chinese aren’t paying,” the Fox News host pointed out.
Kudlow insisted that China would suffer G.D.P. losses.
“I understand that but the president says China pays the tariffs,” Wallace said. “They may suffer consequences but it’s U.S. businesses and U.S. consumers who pay.”

More than 1,100 former US Department of Justice officials called on Attorney General William P. Barr on Sunday to step down after he intervened last week to lower the Justice Department’s sentencing recommendation for President Trump’s longtime friend and political crony Roger J. Stone Jr.
“It is unheard of for the Department’s top leaders to overrule line prosecutors, who are following established policies, in order to give preferential treatment to a close associate of the President, as Attorney General Barr did in the Stone case,” wrote the former Justice Department attorneys in their Sunday letter. “It is even more outrageous for the Attorney General to intervene as he did here — after the President publicly condemned the sentencing recommendation that line prosecutors had already filed in court.”

‘America — y’all gotta wake up’: MSNBC panel cracks up laughing at Trump bizarre claims about the border wall
Last month, President Donald Trump's border wall collapsed due to weather problems. A new decision was made that in certain areas, Trump's wall must be a kind of "gate" that will remain open during months known for heavy flooding.
After weeks of ignoring the news, Trump finally found something to say about the catastrophe during a press conference where he rambled about different ways that people have tried to get drugs over the wall using a sling-shot.
