Can only laugh at precedence comments. Has ANY President ORDERED our businesses to stop doing business with ANY COUNTRY? Even a tiny one? Hmmm... no. Let alone the country we have the largest $$$ invested with imports. It would massively impact (in a negative way) a huge number of businesses. It would hurt many Americans and businesses. It's not an easy thing to shift your supply chain. Consider: available supply from other countries and businesses, their rising prices because they simply can, delays in orders and delays for businesses in America for their customers - you people are not using your heads.
It's cute you think it's a simple thing to change supply chain. Pricing, shipping, supply vs. demand, quality (you are ignorant if you think all Chinese imports are "cheap"), delays, contracts, failed suppliers and having to change your vendor, losing contracts because of the above - and the laughable "we'll do it in the good U.S. of A!" comments.
Not days.. not weeks.. YEARS to fix that. Do you have any idea how many hundreds of thousands of businesses would go under as a result? Oh.. you don't care.. because "our kids kids!" will benefit for our mighty sacrifice. Which of course is not true at all, most of you just want to gloat that your savior and hero Trump gets his way. Your blathering about how our kids kids kids will have a better America is a load of you know what. You just want Trump to impose his will, and it will justify your support of him.
And the above is with my hating the how and why China is a good import resource. I think their workforce is a wreck. Not everywhere, but there are many parts of China where their citizens are taken advantage of in many ways for profit (China and American businesses). But even so, you can't just cut it off. It takes YEEEARS to fix this. You can't just cut it off instantly. You know nothing about business if you think that's a reality.

does this include the companies that are operated by the CIA , as they have more potential to damage the US and national security than any normal company that operates within the bounds of international law .
how about those security companies that operate from the US in theatres of war , are they being called back too
I am just asking out of curiosity
