I believe that you may be wrong, because tariffs apply to partially assembled aircraft coming in to the US. As the fuselage and other parts are partially assembled parts of the plane that are manufactured in various countries around the world that would be imported into the US for assembly, it would appear that the only way to avoid tariffs is if the plane and all its parts are manufactured and assembled in the US. I guess it all depends on what the definition of "partial assembly" is.
I don't know if anyone noticed, but the Commerce Dept. generously reduced the tariff to 292%, compared to the previously announced 299%.
Is that supposed to be a joke?
No, Wilbur Ross was feeling generous this past week. I was expecting that he'd increase the tariffs further, just because he can.
