Trump: If President Xi does not attend G-20, more China tariffs will go into effect immediately
CNBC ^ | June 10, 2019 | Michael Sheetz

President Trump threatened more tariffs on Chinese imports if President Xi Jinping is not at this month’s G-20 meeting.

The president previously threatened to put levies on another $300 billion in Chinese goods if an agreement is not reached soon.

President Donald Trump confirmed on Monday that additional tariffs on Chinese goods will be levied if Chinese President Xi Jinping does not attend this month’s G-20 meeting. When asked during a telephone interview if that means the new tariffs would go into effect immediately, Trump told CNBC’s Becky Quick, “Yes, it would.”

The president previously threatened to put levies on another $300 billion in Chinese goods if a trade agreement is not reached soon. The Trump administration increased tariffs last month on $200 billion worth of goods the U.S. imports from China.

Never mind the past. Focus on the present and future and support Pres. Trump so he can get this country back in shape.

You know what drives me insane is that Trump has been talking about this for decades. Way back in the 80s, he was on Oprah talking about how America was getting screwed by trade deals. All Republicans had to do was listen to him and they'd be enjoying super-majorities right now.

And the beauty of this, is that Trump isn't in the Koch Brothers or Chamber of Commerce's pockets. That means they and their partners are going to apply pressure on China (and Mexico), not on Trump.

Trump moves like a Boss.

Xi is a boss (lower case). He would otherwise have a clear and open path to become the dominant power in the world but one man stands in his way: DJT.

Maybe even more than mideast peace, this is the ultimate art of the deal.

“The President is driving lunatic liberals over the edge. Good job”

I’m disappointed somewhat. I prefer news stories about libtards jumping off roofs and cliffs but they are still noisy as ever.

OMG...President Trump is ordering President Xi Jinping to shape up or ship up

What they going to do now?

1. Attend and eat crow

2. Hide out with Biden?

China is imploding. The only threat they have (and it is a real threat) is migration/invasion.

This is a trap. He goes and it looks like he blinks, he doesn’t go and it looks like he’s running away.

Well played Mr. Trump. Nice to have somebody fight for us.
