I've seen and heard several similar articles and comments from people over the last several week that are critical of the tariffs. The concerns are not unfounded but they all focus on the possible negative consequences to themselves without examining the bigger picture of why it's happening.
China has unfair trade practices - they break trade rules, they manipulate their economy at their trading partners' expense, and they literally steal from us* (which besides hurting the companies being stolen from, is also a national security issue). They have been doing this for decades and no one has seriously challenged them on this (although to be fair we (the US) have not always been in the best position economically to do so).
My current job depends heavily on trade with China and so it's not out of the realm of possibility that if the trade issues escalate and/or do not get resolved soon that it could result in me being laid off. But despite being heavily invested in the issues being resolved, I understand that there is a bigger picture and that the issues need to be addressed.
*This also hits home for me because in the past I have worked with a Chinese foreign national whom several of my co-workers and I suspect was stealing trade secrets. (This was only one individual out of many Chinese people I have worked with in my career in case anyone gets the idea that our suspicion was based on race).
