Right. If Trump places high taxes on Imports from China, Mexico, Japan, et.al, the manufactures are going to respond by shaking in their shoes, and begin making arrangements to move their companies back to the U.S.
Because Trump said so.
Surely they won't laugh about it, and charge $100. for a toaster that previously cost $45.00.
Nah, that's not going to happen. And it won't effect the stock market.
Wake up and smell the coffee folks.
the three D's seen in this OP tells me this is a misinformationist/disinformationist trying to put fear. Dismiss, Debunk and Demean can clearly be seen in this OP and tells us the agenda this person has. A trump hater.
We would see negotiations that will bring businesses back to the states so Americans can have good paying jobs again. Jobs in fast food, malls and IT are not what makes a nation economically strong.

Trump sees this. He wants to undo this damage. I don't see anyone else in government even admitting there is a problem in this regard.
He expects China’s aging population will result in the same outcomes seen in Japan -- lost decades. “China is turning grey on an unprecedented scale in human history, and the government, even the whole Chinese society, isn’t prepared for it,” Yi said in an interview this month.
It's common knowledge that in order for a country to maintain a stable population, the birthrate needs to be over 2.0 per woman (unless the country has a massive influx of immigrants, which can provide a temporary but unpredictable source of relief).
In many countries, however, the growth rate falls far short of that: In Europe, prominent countries such as Germany, Spain and Italy have birthrates below 1.5, and in Japan the problem is even worse, at a mere 1.26. As a result, it is creating an imbalance between young and old populations, an ever-increasing number of retirees are being supported by a shrinking pool of workers.
If this decline continues, it will eventually reach the point where economic growth becomes impossible
