President Trump’s decision to delay tariffs may have been partially driven by concerns that implementing such tariffs would hurt Christmas, according to a new report from CNN.
Sources familiar with the matter reportedly told CNN that aides warned Trump that slapping tariffs on all Chinese imports could “ruin Christmas.”
The article goes on to state the following:
The report comes after the White House announced this week that it would delay tariffs on certain Chinese goods until Dec. 15. The postponed tariffs were on goods including “cell phones, laptop computers, video game consoles, certain toys, computer monitors, and certain items of footwear and clothing.”
Roughly 70 percent of the U.S. economy is driven by consumer spending and several retail stores and chains depend on booming holiday sales for annual profits.
