Protectionism is one of those policies that always sounds good on the campaign trail, but makes a country and its people less wealthy in practice.

Nevertheless, I love how both parties pander using protectionist lingo and how people of both political stripes are in favor of protectionism until a candidate of the other party is the one pulling the strings. If Obama was 'getting tough on China', the same people that are calling Trump out would be the same ones cheering.
