You think he can tell Chinese companies in China what to do? You need to stop drinking that red koolaid and see a doctor immediately

He doesn't. Just like he has no power to tell companies what to do in America.

Presidents have no authority over any of us. Neither does Congress. Neither does the SCOTUS.

We only have authority over ourselves.

And Presidents sure AF have no authority to meddle in the free market.

He placed tariffs on many Chinese goods. So you are wrong.

It's an overreach of authority. He had no right to do it.

Presidents have no authority over you, me, or anyone else.

My hope is that business owners fight back against big government overreach--including taking up arms.

He did it, so obviously he has the authority, proving your statement to be false. Like most of your other nonsensical posts.

No, just because he said he doesn’t mean they are going to stop what they are doing and obey. Being president doesn’t work that way.

Impossible. Trump wouldn't do that an neither would anyone associated with him. He would say "you're fired" immediately and order them to do USA production.
