How will Trump's tax on non-US manufactured goods hit robots?

How will Trump's tax on non-US manufactured goods hit robots?

Most things are more complex than we think they are.

It just struck me that Trump's fight with companies that open up factories overseas or outside the US is just this - more complex.

If you add a tax on jobs that are moved outside of the US should there not also be a tax on machines and robots that are replacing US labour inside the US?

So... the question is perhaps how this will impact the "Made in China" vs "Made in the US" labels?

Or, how are robotics manufacturers setting themselves up for a possible fight with the White House?
