So much winning.
China imports from US plunge 31% in June amid tariff war
https://abcnews.go.com/Business/wireSto ... r-64286836
Imports of U.S. goods fell 31.4% from a year earlier to $9.4 billion, while exports to the American market declined 7.8% to $39.3 billion, customs data showed Friday. China's trade surplus with the United States widened by 3% to $29.9 billion, potentially giving its critics ammunition to demand Washington take a hard line with Beijing.

Yes, winning so ever bigly.....
The fact that you sincerely and wholeheartedly believe that the “Law of Gravity” is unconstitutional and a violation of your sovereign rights, does not absolve you of adherence to it.

I don't think you can make a general number. Every commodity would be different.
There would be 2 factors. How much would it cost to get the commodity someplace else (if you can get it someplace else) and the elasticity of demand for the commodity.
