This is a graphic from some shitlib website. It is not actually what is happening. It is a cool graphic tho.
China is a pretty cool guy who supports the people and shoves Moslems into concentration camps and steals their children and puts them in reeducation centers.
Funnily enough, it is shitlibs from the WaPo and NYT and CNN – those who whined like babies when Myanmar ethnically cleansed their Moslem minority – who are supporting China against Trump. Instead of people like me, who actually like and respect the Chinese for their populist and anti-democratic policies.
But I understand that this situation is unfortunate. China got all this unlimited free everything from previous presidents, and now it is simply a fact of reality that we must even it out.
We are not trying to take down China.
We are just trying to level things out.
China’s state-run media outlets sounded a confident tone in Monday editorials and warned that U.S. trade pressure against the country would not only strain bilateral relations between the two nations but could negatively affect the American economy and wider global markets.
Those reactions followed the latest round of mutual tariffs targeting U.S. and Chinese goods taking effect Monday, escalating trade tensions between the world’s two largest economies.
The U.S. levied tariffs of 10 percent on $200 billion of Chinese products with the rate set to increase to 25 percent by the end of the year. The Chinese government retaliated with taxes on 5,207 U.S. imports worth about $60 billion. Before Monday’s penalties took effect, the U.S. and China had already applied tariffs to $50 billion of each other’s goods.
In Monday editorials, Chinese state-controlled newspapers such as Global Times and China Daily’s editorial pages were quick to claim that Beijing had stayed calm and fair in the face of Washington’s trade pressure.
If the U.S. is using trade pressure as a negotiating tactic against Beijing, it would jeopardize both countries’ economies and the effects would likely spill over to the larger global economy, an editorial published by China Daily on Monday said.
“The US’ unilateral trade moves have not only damaged normal China-US trade activities, but also could stunt world economic growth,” the state-controlled newspaper reported. “So if the Trump administration continues to stick to its unilateral and protectionist stance, and refuses to respect the fundamental norms of mutual respect and consultation, it would be difficult for the two sides to make substantial progress in any future trade talks.”
The editorial added that China has remained sincere in its efforts for a fair trading agreement, in contrast to U.S. “trade bullying.”
It is not bullying.
I will not say that China ever bullied us, because the shill governments of the past made deals with China designed to transfer our industry to them without even having been asked to do so.
It was part of a globalist agenda to make China the manufacturing base of the world, while the US had only a service industry and finance and Hollywood and porno. Plus the tech sector – although all tech products are made in China, even though they are designed in California.
Other media editorials highlighted the broader erosion of U.S.-China relations as a result of Washington’s accusations about unfair business and regulatory practices benefiting Beijing.
For one, China Daily claimed in another editorial that America’s accusations of China engaging in “theft” and forced transfer of intellectual property and other “unfair” trade practices may strain the longstanding consensus between both countries.
As such, if U.S. trade measures against China were meant as a bargaining chip in negotiations “they may actually end up rendering further engagement even more difficult, if not completely impossible,” the editorial said.
For its part, the Global Times, China’s hyper-nationalistic Communist Party-run tabloid, in a Monday editorial called for Americans to recognize China’s strength in the trade disagreements.
“China is doing what it should. China is honest and principled and a major trade power with intensive strengths. No one can take us down,” it said.
I do not feel China is being at all honest here, but whatever – they are defending the interests of their people.
But we have to do the same.
We don’t have any choice.
I think there is room for other deals on the global stage to be made which can even out the issues involving a strained trade relationship. There are lots of options.
But we have to do what is best for America, and the current trade situation between the US and China is simply unworkable. We have to bring back manufacturing, and we have to have trade deals that are fair. Right now, China is already taxing everything they import from us, but they are claiming to be the victim when all Trump is doing is meeting the existing tariffs China has imposed on us.
The media is being extremely dishonest about this, and claiming Trump is adding tariffs. He is not. The tariffs were already there on the Chinese side.
The discussion is so dishonest that it is almost unfathomable that we are having this discussion.
China has so much global power in Southeast Asia and Africa that this should not be a huge deal for them either. We certainly are not going to “take them down.”
If it were not for the lying Jewish media, no one would be able to complain about anything Trump is doing. Thankfully, Trump has the bully pulpit and is able to get his own message out, explaining what he is doing in a way that makes sense to normal people.
