Trump May Impose Tariffs on Tech Imports

One of the worries about Trump’s protectionist bent is that he might end up imposing tariffs on Chinese-made goods, driving up the cost of some popular tech gadgets, most obviously smartphones. That worry may soon be a reality, according to this story, which says Trump wants to impose tariffs on Chinese imports and will target tech and telecom. Details are scant. But given the departure of moderates in the White House, leaving the protectionists in charge, it’s not hard to believe. Tech investors beware. If Trump’s blocking of Broadcom-Qualcomm was worrying, this should be downright alarming.
