Unhhh, they’re weasels. No surprise there.
The only thing they’ll “understand” is a 2x4 applied firmly between the eyes.
China will work with Facebook ,Twitter and Google to win the election for anyone but Trump ,D’oh
The Chinese lie and cheat all the time.
Thank God we have a President who won’t tolerate this crap from them anymore!!!
MAGA!!! GO TRUMP!!!! 2020!!!!
China is reacting to the Mueller Report. China believed the propaganda. China was running out the Trump clock
China and north Korea believed they could maintain the status quo simply by letting events take their place and Trump would be gone.
Get this....... China believed hillary won the election. Hillary won the popular vote and thus the election.
The communists have no intention of honoring any agreement made anyway - they never have.
I doubt that the Trump Administration expects them to. This is essentially a long and complex economic divorce.
Businesses need a long lead time to shift their supply chains out of China. While that is happening, they will continue to posture on holding trade talks, for appearances’ sake.
This round of tariffs is going to hurt the Chinese economy. $25% is more than they can make up with currency manipulation and lower lending rates from State banks.
Bottom Line: They will be losing the business that has the 25% tariffs over the next year or two, along with its whole supporting supply chain, and the economic support of all the jobs associated with that volume.
If China loses the US market entirely (if the next round of 25% on 325 billion is levied), they will have a net trade deficit with the rest of the world. They are vulnerable to potentially epic debt and currency crises at some point - they are way out of whack by objective measures.
Shanghai stock market down 5.5% today.
Black Monday for them.
Minor blip for us - S&P 500 Index fell 0.5%, Nasdaq 0.5%, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average 0.3%.
Basically a normal day.
Trump doesnt roll that way and the Chinese will come back to the table more honest after having learned that lesson.
I'd bet one reason, and maybe the main reason, is that a bunch Dims are sending the message for the Chicoms to wait out Trump and things will get better for them if he doesn't win re-election.
More flexibility after the 2020 election.
I also think the Chicoms and Russians and maybe even some American Dims are sending Kim and the Norks the same message.
China must not understand the value of integrity - their loss at the end of the day!
the Chinese will be all-in on creepy uncle joe biden
