MELISSA FRANCIS: It may be blunted a bit, even though we will feel it here in the U.S., ironically because of the president's trade war that everyone made fun of and ridiculed. The president did realize that we are too dependent on China in the supply chain that we've become slaves, so to speak, to all of the products and to the cheap labor as they continue to buy our debt and that this was a relationship in which we were losing power. And because he started this trade war that was costing companies money, they went up and set up different ways - well maybe we can get this from here, maybe here's our second, maybe we'll do this if it doesn't get solved. And a lot of companies have either moved or have found another way.
