Point of the trade war

Lost in this is the point of the trade war with China is force China to abide by international norms or make it expensive to source from China. Realistically only a fraction of the jobs moved from China will migrate back to the US but many will migrate to other countries in the region really hurting China but boosting countries like Viet Nam or India; the jobs will somewhere. That is assuming China does not cave in.
