Note: neither the country of origin or any transhipped-thru country pays the tariff. The American consumer pays it. Tariffs are really a tax on the consumer, with the idea of making competing products (American) more desirable because they dont have the tax attached. What it really does is raise the price to consumers and lessens competition.
