China's Trade War with the West

Trump was smart to not bend to the Communist Chinese - not only do they break international trade norms and steal IP, their economy is hurting...they had to dump ~ $175 billion into their markets this week, about $65 billion to cover short term needs to pay debt by financial institutions...this is the time for the US and the West in general to ratchet down the pressure - no concessions on trade tariffs. I've stopped buying anything made in China if I can buy a similar product made elsewhere. If the company is Chinese owned, I simply won't buy it.

    Trade wars are like regular wars, they're not good for anyone involved. The stupidity of thinking you'll end up "winning" a trade war is mesmerizing.

      What is stupid is doing nothing to stop the trade dumping, IP-stealing Communist Chinese to continue their practices. It baffles me how ignorant folks attack the USA for putting incremental tariffs in place and say nothing about the lopsided tariffs the Chinese already have in place. How about we go to zero on both ends? China won't agree to that -

      Imports are also used in things built here that get exported and will get more expensive. It's not just china being hit by tariffs, there are a lot of other countries that are already retaliating. If this shit keeps escalating you'll watch the economy tank again.

    You might support getting tough on China, but Trump is waging this trade war in a way that is so disastrously incompetent that we may well end up worse off than we were before.

    We should have had our allies with us in this fight. China couldn’t have survived that. But our idiot president started a trade war with them too!

    You can be a MAGA moron all you want, it doesn’t change the fact that this could have been achieved much easier without a prolonged trade war.

      Hyad70 the US economy has been growing well for years. Long before Trump or the trade war.

      It made literally no sense to immediately start a trade war with all of our closest allies AND China at the same time.

      Also....the new NAFTA agreement is almost exactly the same as the old agreement. I don’t know what makes you think things are suddenly so much fairer 🤦‍♂️

      Also, you can try and act like the Chinese economy is practically collapsing before our very eyes - but that is NOT what is actually happening. In fact, the Chinese economy is still growing in spite of our tariffs.

      It’s not growing as quickly as it would have - but our tariffs have had very little effect thus far.

      All the US allies are still in grip of pro- globalization, pro-immigration left parties.
      All they n most politicians do is virtue signal and try not to rock the boat much. Meanwhile the Chinese communist party is a juggernaut, which is above this petty appeasement politics.
      Trump is the best counter attack the west has against them.

      aLuu55 is too stupid to realize such simple facts.

      You’re saying all of our allies that we COULD and should have worked with against China....were too busy virtue signaling to work with us against China?

      Speaking of stupid.... 🤦‍♂️

      Read the FIRST stmt stupid.

      It says why us COULD NOT work with those allies.
      Stick to name calling. Foreign trade is a little above ur pay grade.

    Why did you stop buying Chinese goods just now? Why not one year ago? Is it because you're following the government propaganda and do what they say? What do you feel about Iran? North Korea? Are they manacing you right now?
