Trump, keep up on American First!!! Don't let China away with punishing American companies.

The Globalists, the Leftists, the Marxists, the Deep State, keep talking about how Tariffs are going to cause a recession. Don't listen to them!!! They do not have American interests in heart.

So please Trump, make more Big, Bad and Beautiful Tariffs!!!!!!

Cool story.

The tariffs are backfiring on Trump, though. China is calling Donny's bluff at every turn.

China is OWNING Trump right now.

China has been OWNING the United States at every turn for decades, these facts are now out in the open and even the average democrat can see that we're getting taken advantage of. Imagine how much different things could be if democrats supported our country more than they hate our President.

Please tell us more about how much you love a big liberal government interfering with the free economy and capitalism.


China could ruin us anytime they want by simply dumping all the American investments they have.

That's become the "new conservatism". New Conservatives applaud government meddling in markets, because free markets are... leftist? And what ultimately matters is to give those nasty elites their comeuppance.

Presumably the OP was satire. I wonder how many of our "conservative" friends on this forum will accept that satire as literal truth.

Just heard that China's economy is doing unexpectedly well:

Exports to the US are less and less important to China, so the tariffs are increasingly pointless.

Weren't we told prices would go up & the American consumer would be the ones paying for these tariffs on China?

"Imports by Locality of Origin: The price index for imports from China edged down 0.1 percent in May following a 0.2-percent drop the previous month. Import prices from China have not recorded a monthly advance since the index rose 0.1 percent in May 2018. Prices for imports from China declined 1.4 percent over the past year, the largest 12-month drop since a 1.6-percent decrease in February 2017."

China's response to tariffs? Threaten the US companies doing business in China. Won't end well for China.

"Beijing to blacklist ‘unreliable’ foreign entities that ‘hurt interests of Chinese firms’:

The Ministry of Commerce said on Friday that it would blacklist foreign businesses or individuals that violated market rules and contractual obligations, or took “discriminatory measures” to hurt Chinese business rights and interests, as well as national security and interests.

Specific measures for those on the list would be revealed “in the near future”, said ministry spokesman Gao Feng. Gao said the “unreliable” blacklist would be based on China’s foreign trade, anti-monopoly and national security laws, and it would target entities that had blocked Chinese businesses out of non-commercial concerns."

China is hurting.

They are feeling the squeeze, and it's coming from a country where half of the population hates itself and it's own country.

Just think if everyone in America put America first...
