    Are the trade talks dead? China can fight a 30-year trade war with US but US likes instant fast win wars. Another trillion added to the deficit with NOTHING to show for it!
    NO infrastructure, NO healthcare, NO middle class tax cut, NO new manufacturing jobs and now everything costs MORE!
    WHERE did all that money go?

    Hysterical! The reporter asked Chancellor Merkel a question on ISIS and Trump jumps in front of her to answer. What an idiot! Trump thinks everything is about him.

    Trump is so two faced it’s unreal. He talks nicely in front of you and then stabs you in the back when he leaves.

    Btw, why does Trump always look like he’s bored and talks in circles? All he does is ramble on and on but never makes any sense or really answers the questions.

    Don’t worry people as soon as he gets back to the country he will blame China again.

    How trustworthy is Trump?
    Trump has FLIPPED on TARIFFS and TAXES in recent days with some of his CONTRADICTORY statements.
    On 2 August, “The tariffs are NOT being paid for by our people, it’s being paid for by CHINA”.
    On 13 August, “We’re doing this for the CHRISTMAS SEASON,
    just in case some of the tariffs would have an IMPACT on US customers”.
    “Payroll tax is something that we THINK ABOUT and a lot of people would like to see that”.
    I’m NOT looking at a tax cut now, we don’t need it, we have a STRONG ECONOMY.
    Do the US have a STEADY PATH to keep us OUT of recession?
    The issue is the markets open on Monday after FALLING 600 points in just a FEW HOURS on Friday.
    Does the US have now an administration that has to translate what the president really said or meant?

    It’s US hypocrisy. Haven’t US companies BOUGHT OUT businesses, gut its intellectual property before selling it? Isn’t US greed doing this ALREADY?
    But BLAME China for intellectual property theft, forced technology transfer and ownership of US companies. There is NO law in China that requires foreign companies to TRANSFER TECHNOLOGY.
    IF it did happen, US companies could have WALKED AWAY.
    NO ONE is preventing US companies from leaving China. The decision is totally in AMERICAN HANDS.

    Trump claimed he could ORDER American companies to LEAVE China
    and make their products in the US under the NATIONAL EMERGENCY ACT.
    But the act ONLY blocks US companies sending FUTURE FUNDS, not past investments.
    For the last 42 years it has only been used to stop businesses with OUTLAW COUNTRIES
    or with DRUG DEALERS, not with TRADING PARTNERS.
    So, is THIS really a realistic option for the US president?
    Most US companies are in China for the CHINESE MARKET
    and because China represents up 33 % of GLOBAL GROWTH.
    Most US companies are in China because it’s a MIDDLE CLASS that is LARGER than the POPULATION OF THE US and China is such a DYNAMIC STRONG VIBRANT AND INNOVATIVE economy
    and American wish to be a part of that.
    US companies INVESTED $256 billion in China between 1990 and 2017,
    compared with $140 billion Chinese companies have invested in the US.
    It’d TAKE YEARS to wind down operations and shift production out of China completely.

    The China rule: achieve by all means, legal or illegal, ethical or not. Promises are only smoke
    and mirror, agreements are only on papers. Cheating is smart. Rules are only made for those who follow. The ultimate rule is to follow no rule. These have been the culture and policies in China for the last 30 years. I know it because I am Chinese. The democratic candidates are talking about engaging
    with China with mutual respect. Some of them are bought out, and some others are idiots!

    ‘The role of a US president is to negotiate with the Globalized World and to do so with clear vision and not to draw attention to himself to become a hero of his actions.

    At the 2019 summer G7 meeting, asked if he has changed his stance on China.
    Sure….might as well. I have second thoughts about everything – Trump
    This is what a defeated man says. A man who has no principles and is suffering from low self-esteem is one who is indecisive and lacks confidence.
    On the surface, Trump comes off as a tough guy and YET…..he is the most fragile of creatures. He is the epitome of SNOWFLAKE.
    Trump is not a man.

    He lives behind a facade. On the surface, he pretends to be all bluster and tough, but he simply cannot take the heat. He is the most fragile of creatures. He is the epitome of SNOWFLAKE. He acts on emotional impulses. He has no control. He lacks foresight.
    Not one man I know is so delicate. He does remind me of a teenage boy who can’t join the cool kids at the table.

    He never had the required character for the Office of POTUS.
    WE DESERVE SO MUCH BETTER. Our country deserves a better person.

    ‘Strongman’ in the context of governance means strength in diplomacy, stubborn in principles, unwavering in morals, and willingness to sacrifice. I see not one iota in Trump. All I see is a man who throws tantrums, hides from eye to eye conflict, flips and flops every minute, acts impulsively etc. He is a coward and lazy…yes…lazy.

    The US and the media claimed that many countries, specially CHINA, should have taken ADVANTAGE of the US?
    Really? CHEAP PRODUCTS from China made many US companies RICH.
    Unfortunately, they DIDN’T share much with their workers in China.
    Chinese workers get paid less than $2/hr, works 6 days a week,
    hundreds miles away from their families and lived in the dorm with 4-6 others.
    Oh and they only go home once a year while the Americans enjoy the CHEAP GOODS.
    The $450 billion goods from China are actually sold as much as 3-5X the import price.
    Many US companies OUTSOURCE their products to China.
    US companies made a huge profit WITHOUT investing on infrastructure, labor laws, pollution…
    Now, who’s the WINNER and who’s the LOSER here?

    At least, the previous administration succeeds in getting US out of the financial crisis and starting the economic groth. Trump, even with a growing economy, succeeds in crashing it 🤷‍♂️ he should be more humble before talking

    China is in NO rush to make a deal.
    US COMPANIES that import US products from China are PAYING the tariffs.
    China can wait it out, and begin long-term solutions to China’s reliance on US trade.

    When the US raise tariffs, the US just pay HIGHER PRICES for the same US GOODS imported from China. US GOODS imported from China is harder to find ALTERNATIVE SOURCING.
    When China raises tariffs, the Chinese just buy from ANOTHER COUNTRY because they are EASILY REPLACED by other country’s products. Are the US losing this ‘war’?

    America PAID billions on tariffs just in order to move these LOW-END MANUFACTURING jobs
    from China to other SOUTH EAST ASIAN COUNTRIES?
    The US is NOT going to magically start manufacturing all the things that China
    and other countries have been manufacturing for decades.
    Even if we could move these low-pay jobs BACK to the US as claimed by Trump,
    it’d only ATTRACT illegal immigrants because only they’d do these jobs. What’s the POINT?

    HOW did this fentanyl crisis actually got started? Haven’t US big Pharma companies given KICKBACKS (money) to encourage US doctors to push opioids onto their patients FOR YEARS?
    HAVEN’T good old-fashioned GREED by the US big Pharma companies
    started this crisis in the first place?
    It’s reported China had implemented strict controls on the highly addictive synthetic opioid
    and China didn’t sell fentanyl to the US illegally.
    The RESPONSIBILITY for fentanyl abuse should lay with the USERS.
    If China STOPPED supplying fentanyl to the US, would other countries like
    UK, France or Columbia jump in and fill the vacuum as long as the demand is there?

    Yes it was the leadership, however its also the American People at fault for putting up with the actions of those leaders… Just like putting up with worthless Congress,, Hilary walking free. Its them who work for us. Its time they remember that!!!

    Here is WHY the US has NOT been ripped off by China and it’s actually the OPPOSITE.
    The trade with China BENEFITED the US with 1.1 million jobs from 2009 to 2018 and reduced US consumer prices to 5% in 2015. The US exported $241 billion to China and the sales revenue of US companies in China was $700 billion in 2017.
    $1.37 trillion of CAPITAL and US TREASURY HOLDINGS flowed into the US from China in 2017.
    By BLAMING China for its trade deficit, the US is VIOLATING international trading rules by acting as a BULLY in order to force endless CONCESSIONS from China.
    The US also ATTACK Mexico, India, EU and Japan.
    The US have LOST a number of LAWSUITS within the WTO after it’s SUED by the EU, Japan, Canada, South Korea, Switzerland, Norway, New Zealand, and Brazil.
    But the US has REPEATEDLY REFUSED to settle the judgments.
    The US imposed tariffs as a MAIN EXCUSE because they run a DEFICIT over $500 billion in trade with China. The US view this TRADE DEFICIT as an ADVANTAGE taking by China of the US and therefore JUSTIFIES raising tariffs on Chinese imports in order to NARROW the deficit.
    But reports point to flaws in how the US assesses its imports.
    It counts goods made in China but imported from a third country in the SAME CATEGORY as imports DIRECTLY from China.
    The CAUSES of the deficit is impacted by industrial competitiveness, the international division of labor,
    trade policy, and the status of the dollar.
    The US must import CAPITAL from the world’s major savers, including China, in order to INVEST AND GROW as its own economy lacks SAVINGS.
    That’s why the US runs TRADE DEFICITS with over ONE HUNDRED countries.
    The US is pushing its policy of playing the ECONOMIC BULLY in order to advance its OWN INTERESTS. Using tools like tariffs to BULLY China won’t work, and the sooner the US realises that, the better off it will be.

    Maybe US’s REAL target was NEVER China and it’s actually the STOCK MARKET
    milking the market trend with ULTIMATE INSIDER INFORMATION.
    How can China negotiate when the US is holding a loaded gun to her head?
    The US demand China to surrender judicial authority over trade dispute and tech transfer.
    It’s US hypocrisy. Haven’t US companies BOUGHT OUT businesses, gut its intellectual property before selling it? Isn’t US greed doing this ALREADY?
    But BLAME China for intellectual property theft, forced technology transfer and ownership of US companies. There is NO law in China that requires foreign companies to TRANSFER TECHNOLOGY.

    The FED is the KING of manipulating the dollar,
    and the longer they keep interest rates DOWN, the worst the domestic debt gets.
    The FED is a private bank for the benefit of the world large organisations.
    China’s just learned it from the FED.

  24. Emily Sophia
    August 26, 2019 @ 8:12 am

    By cutting interest rates, the FED inadvertently PUSHED UP the value of the dollar.
    Driving down stocks and pushing the dollar to a TWO-YEAR HIGH.
    A strong dollar makes it more expensive for US firms to do business overseas, the opposite of what Trump wants.
    Even if Trump goes after the FED over the Chinese yuan, the only ones who can change the policy is Congress.
    Congress created the Fed and the Fed reports to Congress, not to the president.

    Each Trump supporter needs to tell me why Russia rejoining the G7 is a good idea. Their response will prove they’re clueless to reality which is completely unsurprisingly since they are Trump supporters.

    The US economy is BOOMING. Isn’t it merely a “credit expansion”?
    NOW, the Federal Reserve lower interest rates EVEN more than before.
    More tax cuts might be on the table because some critics said the US is OVERBORROWING
    or MORTGAGING its future to allay investor’s and voter’s FEARS OF A RECESSION.
    A few months ago, FED said interest rates we’re gonna be RAISED because our economy was so FANTASTIC
    it had recovered.
    Trump said the Federal Reserve is a much bigger problem than China because of their interest rate policy.

    What INCENTIVE does China have to buy US agricultural and meat Products, if proven they’re Gene-manipulated? Americans don´t seem to care about Gene-manipulated products but the consumers in Europe, Japan and many other developed countries WON’T buy Gene-manipulated products. China already own a large portion of our debt and already have deals in place with other countries to buy agricultural products at a better rate. Why would they give up that leverage? Threats and blustering from the US will not change the economics.

    CHINESE ECONOMIC SUPREMACY is inevitable and China’s consumption will EXCEED US levels in the mid of 2030.
    Many countries including the Philippines, Vietnam, New Zealand, Australia, Indonesia, Thailand and Malaysia are SHIFTING their trade balance away from the US toward CHINA.
    They are all INTEGRATED into supply chains which are located where the HUB is, essentially located in China.
    You need to have a CHINA STRATEGY if you want to have a manufacturing strategy.
    China trades with all these countries MORE than the US does.
    In 2020, China will be the biggest economy in the world.
    The US is trying to stop that train but it CANNOT be stopped.

    China is INNOVATING faster than you imagine.
    China is turning from PRODUCTION into engineering, innovation and technology sectors.
    Many innovative Chinese companies don’t need to look for international markets because there is so MUCH ROOM to grow in China.
    China builds and installs more ROBOTS in their factories.
    DEMAND for robots is being driven by the consumer electronics and car manufacturing industries.
