Wait, Trump delayed tariffs to protect Christmas? You mean consumers would be affected? You weren't supposed to say that, Wilbur!

This week the "administration" delayed tariffs from September to December. And Commerce Secretary and frequent on-the-job napper Wilbur Ross told Squawk Box, that this was done unilaterally with no concessions from China at all, simply to protect the Christmas.
