Anyone noticed aluminum foil cost more?

Even at Walmart 25 sq. foot is over $2 or more. The Dollar stores are running short of it.

In a memo issued Thursday, the U.S. president directed the U.S. Postal Service to eliminate international postal discounts that let Chinese merchants inexpensively ship goods directly to U.S. consumers’ homes.

5. Tariffs will cancel your tax cut 100 fold.
