23. Where did you find that 100% tariff figure? We exported $5 billion worth of cars to China in 2011.

From the information at the Census foreign trade site:

In 2011 we exported $5.3 billion in "(30000) Passenger cars, new and used". That was an increase from $1.1 billion in 2009 and $3.4 billion in 2010.

Automobiles is one product where we have a huge trade surplus with China since we only imported $22.1 million from them compared to our $5.3 billion in exports. The same is true for the aircraft category.
