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.
Typical fake news... A severe stretch and intentional misquote. The tweet is right there and that is not what he said.
Trump says he will respond to tariffs this afternoon
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.
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.
If the fed lowers rates and raises tariffs, China will pay for the tariffs with a weaker Yuan. Companies will spend more money at home or in other countries. And the US debt will shrink.
Right now, China is hurting the world, not just America. China has pulled in production from many smaller countries who could be growing now. But they aren’t because they have a hard time competing with China. America needs to tariff China out of the prime spot because China uses the money to build their Army, steal our products, and hack our companies, elections, and government. Simply put, China is a very bad actor and we are paying for it. Its time to stop.
And Mr. Trump, think about this. Go to the G7 and say, Global warming starts with China. China is the pollution disaster of the century.
‘Our great American companies are hereby ordered to immediately start looking for an alternative to China, including bringing....your companies HOME and making your products in the USA.’
The Presidential Order is clear and it is decisive.
America is proud and our corporations now have the leadership they require.
To not follow the President’s order will have devastating consequences upon those corporations.
Greatest President Ever!
I think Trump thought that the Jackson Hole conference was an FOMC meeting. (Trump: “As usual, the Fed did NOTHING!”) That’s what set off his unhinged rant that cost another 2% on equities.
He cant order via a tweet. This is just an effort at friendly persuasion. But he can order a suspension of trade or a partial Sutor soon ( certain commodities, goods, etc) by regular presidential order - anytime he finds its necessary. So, by issuing this little tweet hes being very kind to big American corporate interests - giving them advance word that they need to get onboard with policy since important trade negotiations are in progress and stop undermining USA
Trump is having to fight too many domestic enemies who are hell-bent on making sure he doesn’t get re-elected.
I'm thinking that President Trump knows that Xi CAN order China to do anything, so he's using that word in parallel even if he doesn't have the authority.
It's a power posturing move. Now the Democrats and the MSM can take China's side against America in the run-up to 2020 if they quibble over Trump's use of the word "order."
I trust him completely on this.
Fake News Headline Alert!
This President has balls bigger than Texas
You go get them Mr. President! Bring those companies and JOBS back to America where they belong. Im sick of China stealing our IP and our high-level jobs. Make those companies leave China, and leave now. Lord knows that if the Rats ever take over, theyre socialist agenda will allow these companies to just be free and do whatever they want and keep hurting Americans. Glad we have a fighter in Trump, willing to make these businesses do what is right.
