The President of the United States is implementing a 10% tariff on another $200 billion of Goods from China, which I assume will impact a lot of consumer goods, and which may have an impact on Business to Consumer goods.
We ship from Canada directly to the USA, goods of Chinese Origin, where consumer goods are duty free up to $800 (under Section 321 [De Minimis] of the US customs act.
In theory, Tariff rates and codes, Section 321 is an act past by Congress, and can't be legally overturned by the President, so executive orders are out of the question.
However, this gives a perception of an advantage over American Businesses selling the same goods, and I'm worried about the status quo standing one way or another.
