    On this episode of Fault Lines, hosts Garland Nixon and Lee Stranahan discuss President Trump's pro-tariff views and how they are impacting the economy. Is Trump's tariff strategy a smart economic policy or a short sighted move with negative ramifications to come? Geopolitical analyst Tom Luongo joins the hosts to give his take on this key issue.
