Don’t increased costs effect profit, generally?


Not sure what your point is.

If Ford passes on the costs to the consumer (which I don’t think they’re doing) then demand will decrease leading to less revenue and profit.

If Ford pays the tariff without passing it on it’s an expense (tax) on the corporation and comes the bottom line. Losses or less profit.
