President Donald Trump is reportedly on the warpath when it comes to Chinese tariffs.
According to Axios and apparently confirmed with sources having knowledge of the meeting, America's leader reportedly told his staff, "I want tariffs."
FOX Business Network anchor Stuart Varney, himself a London School of Economics graduate, sought my take Monday morning.

There is no doubt that the allure of protectionism is strong, but the reality is that it hurts the very people it's supposed to help. And badly at that.
The legendary Art Laffer, a Reagan-era economist who is regarded as the father of supply-side economics, quickly agreed, observing, "Protectionism never works."
Then he launched in with a thought to drive the point home – and I'm paraphrasing – if protectionism worked, North Korea would be a bastion of capitalism and success.
I couldn't agree more strongly.
