A tariff will not work on just one country.  The country will prove their plant to a different country.  Just like the furniture tariff.

A tariff must be on ALL imported product and components of a certain type

The tariff on China's tires did ultimately lead to a 30% reduction in Made in China tire imports from 2009 to 2011, but that didn’t mean 30% more tires were produced in the U.S.  It just meant that:

30% more tires were imported from Canada;

110% more from South Korea;

44% more from Japan;

152% more from Indonesia;

154% more from Thailand;

117% more from Mexico and

285% more from low volume provider Taiwan
