We've already seen countries like China place their own tariffs as a result of these trade wars. And there are already a couple of North American automakers who have been forced to move production overseas in an effort to maintain profitability.

Tariffs are part a negotiation tool and a real action that will be followed through and so far the Trump admin has shown it to be the former with the current delays.
Being too aggressive with these tariffs can have severe effects on the American economy during a time its no longer the strongest world power.

AliBaba pulled in $30 Billion within 6-months which is insane considering that's just within Asian markets. The U.S. has a lot to worry about

There is a reason why Trump has yet to pull the trigger on several auto tariffs and that's because he fears what other countries may do reactively. We will have to wait and see how this new USMCA agreement works out, but U.S automakers are still pleading with his administration to make changes to the aluminum tariffs.
