  1. Americans have been suffering since very long time and Trump is doing a great job. Manufacturing has to come back to US. Blue-collar jobs are shifting to foreigner countries like never before. There is an imminent threat due to automation and manufacturing leaving America.

  2. The yanks are hurting,why would a population of 327 million try to compete with a population of almost 2 billion that can literally sustain it's own economy.When America for themselves consume more than they produce.They thought trade war would of shown cracks in the Chinese economy to exploit but instead the world is seeing the cracks in the American economy.Soy farmers are literally crying.

  3. US finance its deficit spending through its sale of treasury bills. but there is no buyer. Tariff is another way of raising money from consumers/taxpayers. that's why even if there's a trade deal with china US insist on keeping the tariff in place. US economy is in worst shape than they led you to believe.

  4. I'm telling the same thing from the beginning. Nobody, no country will be benefited from this trade war. Moreover, in a long run, US economy might be in real danger. Actually, they will lose the most. It couldn't be expected by any conscious people because US economy down will hurt global economy and from the mess of global economy, Chinese economy will rise as a superpower because of their cash, daily necessity manufacturing hub, very diligent mass population and prudent leadership. In this scenario, US will not be able to compete with their service based economy against China. US may lose the crown if Trump administration continue the trade war miscalculating the future consequence. Best solution for US is "cooperation & coexisting with China as a dominant power for next half century rather than losing the crown and messing up the economy. China also should consider US economic problems. They can't sustain with a huge trade deficit for a long time. It should be corrected. It should be win-win solution. Let's hope for the best.

  5. The following day that these so-called "experts" warned the US of the trade war, China's economy looks gloomier and US stocks jump more than 200 points. These "economic experts" are now obsolete in Trump's era.

  6. China is not afraid. The U.S. population of 327 milion is made up of consumers. China is starting to develop more in Africa, aka, future consumers, population 1.2 billion.

  7. Translation: Get back under our wing, there are still nations whose souls the IMF have yet to consume and then rent back to their neighbors
