Vietnam is the biggest beneficiary of Donald Trump's trade war with China. Much of the rest of South East Asia is also benefiting.

"...completely avoided if you buy from a non-Tariffed Country, or you buy the product inside the USA (the best idea). That’s Zero Tariffs. Many Tariffed companies will be leaving China for Vietnam and other such countries in Asia. That’s why China wants to make a deal so badly!..." - Donald Trump Twitter May 13, 2019

Now, no one can stake claims until 2032, though a portion of that Obama-era ban is under review by the Trump administration." - Trump Admin in the news - Denver Post March 8, 2018 The Global Climate Protection Act was introduced by Joe Biden to the Senate in 1986.
