Because Trump Trade War includes Electronic components.
So much winning. Let's face it.. it's a tax on the population of the US.

If I was a retail vender, I would label everything that went up in price due to this with a sticker showing the pre-tariff price and the new price. This idiocy won't stop until the uninformed masses (ie his base) realize who is at fault.

Reminds me of the phone companies, itemizing regulatory taxes on the monthly bill. SEE? This is what the government is taking from you!

What's different this time is that the steel tariffs are having truly Yuge effects.

Another reason I purchased a Mac last month.

Our household is pretty much set for main tech for awhile. We will wait this out or buy used for awhile.

Only, this could inevitably discourage people from buying new entirely. This wouldn't be entirely bad, as there is a certain degree of overconsumption today - most people don't need the new bling phone or 4K TV to replace their 1-2 year old device. However, it would have a deleterious downward effect economic growth.

However, it's the way of this administration - like an abusive spouse, isolate us from our friends, take away our financial independence, and force an ideology down our throats that doesn't comport with any sense of reality, under the auspices that "the beatings will continue until morale improves!"
