You can bet on it.

So please Trump, make more Big, Bad and Beautiful Tariffs!!!!!!
He just postponed til Dec 15th a bunch of tariffs. so the globalist can make more money during the xmas season. Guess you will have to find a new hero.

No.....I don't think you understand that one has to lose to WIN.

China already won. They now have an excuse for a couple decades not to trust us at all. They can make deals with others and when we complain they can say "Your POTUS said this about us!"....

That is just one example - but China has a largely planned economy (and an actual plan, unlike the USA) and they can adjust things...we cannot.

They already have won many skirmishes and battles in this. Your comment shoes the difference between east and west. They would look at "no win" as a lesson and they could change from there to protect their own people and country.

We will do nothing...in any case.

Believe me - the Chinese leaders have not had as many laughs and jokes for a LONG time....Trump will be something they will refer to in laughter fits for years!

They have, like any vast country, many things to deal with...which are vastly larger than a temporary child at the helm of the USA.

I think the tariff's are needed, and don't think the postponing of the latest ones is a bad thing either. It takes time to transition supply lines and/or revive stateside facilities. It's also important to point out, that we need to better BALANCE trade, not eliminate it. Some things will make total sense to bring back or have made else ware, other things maybe not.
I know the trade commission is taking comments and requests for exclusion from Tariff's from many companies.

The headlines are

Trump didn't fix health insurance
Trump didn't build the wall with mexican money
Trump didn't close the Southern Border
Trump didn't stop migrants (many more are coming...then his shipments back).
Trump economy is failing
Trump tariff-threats (we can't call them actual tariffs) are a joke...

and lots more.

I think you should take a quick look at his approval rating...
https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com...ex_cid=rrpromo

Two and 1/2 years in and the American people aren't even nearly even 50/50. In fact, those figures mean 30% more disapprove...than approve. That is massive.

You missed my point. China loses if they would seriously dump Treasuries. Not that they would lose in the end.

Trump just negotiates with himself. Xi needs to do nothing but sit around and see where the idiot goes next.
