The Trump Administration did what it said, and imposed tariffs on Chinese goods on Friday, imposing $50 billion in duties on their goods. China retaliated with its own tariffs on $50 billion of U.S. goods.

On Tuesday, investors will get a look at the latest housing starts. And oil is on traders minds, and of course is a factor in the cost of shipping new or existing manufactured homes.

The video features Charles Payne leading a discussion with conservative author Kristin Tate, Wall Street Journal editorial page writer Jillian Melchior, and American Majority CEO Ned Ryun on whether President Trump’s tariffs against China will impact the U.S. economy.
