Trump 'hereby orders' US companies to leave China after attacking Fed chair
The Guardian ^ | 8/23/2019 | Dominic Rushe

Donald Trump ordered US companies to leave China on Friday after launching another blistering attack on Federal Reserve chairman Jerome Powell, asking “who is our bigger enemy, Jay Powell or [China’s] Chairman Xi?”

Moments after Federal Reserve chairman, Jerome Powell, warned the US central bank was facing a “new challenge” as it deals with the Trump administration’s seesaw trade policies and ongoing dispute with China, Trump went on a Twitter rampage calling for a US boycott.

I admit, sometimes President Trump is playing a game I don’t understand, but it seems using the word “order” is less than ideal.

Trade wars are easy to win (When you run a huge trade deficit).

But FED wars. Those are hard. The best you can do is constantly harp on the FED and tell them publicly what they should do, and then point to them when the economy stumbles and they didn’t do what you told them they should do.

Yeah, he’s more of a business executive than snowflake president.

Watch the liberals, msm and progressive CEOs side with China. Then watch mainstream Americans arise to defend America and Trump.

Typical fake news... A severe stretch and intentional misquote. The tweet is right there and that is not what he said.

But you still should not refer to the Chairman of the Fed as an enemy.

I've reached the point where if DJT ordered martial law, and the subsequent jailing of all members of the MSM & academia, I'd stand up and applaud. It's time.

Also, I am ordering all carriers, including Fed Ex, Amazon, UPS and the Post Office, to SEARCH FOR & REFUSE,....
....all deliveries of Fentanyl from China (or anywhere else!). Fentanyl kills 100,000 Americans a year. President Xi said this would stop - it didn’t. Our Economy, because of our gains in the last 2 1/2 years, is MUCH larger than that of China. We will keep it that way!

You may be right, but the word “order” seems to ensure that President Trump’s warning to US companies to “come home” will NOT be ignored by the fake-news media.

I think he hereby ordered them to start looking for an alternative, and he did not hereby order them to leave China, as The Guardian Fake News is lying.

The order was about US freight carriers to search for fentanyl shipments from China and refuse to deliver them.

Probably not... but if you wanted to get across your level of frustration with the FED...that’s one way of doing it.

Trump wants his epitaph to read, “I killed the Fed”.

“trade wars are easy to win!”

As long as you are not fighting enemies within the gates.
