  • Trump has never known what he's doing. He can't even write well and has to have someone else to it. I think this was Barron. Trump's an idiot even dealing with Xi and Kim. Both in for life and both don't care about the people of their country. China goes by Marxism and foreign companies have all but left because of China's motto. "If you can cheat someone then cheat them." They believe in making and spending money today. They worship money and will even cheat their government to get it. Look up nail houses. Watch Winston's videos. He married a Chinese Doctor and has lived in China for 13 years. There is no Social Security or health plans in China. Someone gets cancer they use self remedies. And if you marry a Chinese woman you take on the responsibility of ALL her family. You need to have a house and a car. It's really sick. A lot of men can't even find wives because of Mao's one baby rule. So some are being kidnapped from other countries. Human trafficking is going on. And China is taking over Africa. Winston is from South Africa and he shows it. In one town a bunch of Chinese police officers take over a police station there. The Chinese come into a region, loan and pay for all kinds of stuff. When the people can't pay them back. . they take over the city! I kid you not. Look up what Winston shows in his videos. And Xi plans to do that to all of Africa I believe. And so does Winston and he's from there. "serpentza." Scary what Xi is doing. Instead of taking care of the people who are eating rats in his country he's loaning billions to other countries. :( Songs

  • That trump is playing with fire... IF China really wanted a trade war, they could do several things, one more devastating than the other, either subsidize the shit out of the global market, or refuse to sell anything to the US... It'd tank the prices of goods in the rest of the world, but the hairball doesn't seem to care about the rest of the world himself, so fudge him... If China really wants to play hard, they could just pull all their US investments at once and see the world burn, while they have production capacity enough to win the business of the rest of us (not in the US), while still being pretty self sustainable. IF China wanted to, they could make the US seem as isolated as NK, time would stop, practically, and US would run out of avocados and maple syrup in a matter of weeks. Why doesn't that lard lump realize that the reason for his success is the free and global market? Edit: I'm sure that the EU will be happy to amp up the machinery that's in store, to earn on the CN needs of agri products, back in the 90's we had butter mountains building up because the cold war was finally over, so EU agri is actually rather limited by now, to avoid food waste, but if there are buyers, I'm sure those rules can be rolled back in less than a year. Besides, the purchasers can brag about products being GMO-free or even organic. Have fun mr. "president"... you may very well have caused the imbalance that will crash your nations exports more than they already were... I can only wonder how long the big G wants to stay in a politically unstable country.

We are flooded with machinists in the west looking for work doing anything and now no one has wotk because Alberta oil has been devestated along with it's people. Incuding me. Renewables will happen no matter what in the next 50 to 75 years. Right now we need pipelines for a strong economy to give energy companies a chance to invest in i ovation for the future. They are not oilcompanies they are energy companies and in the next 50 years if we keep them healthy today they will be our energy companies of tomorrow like suncor.

  • You all are a bunch of ignorant morons. You are getting your info from a dumb comedian who puts the spin on things and leaves certain info out. I don't like any politician but Colbert is an idiot. If everyone here hates the president so bad and hates how he's running the country then why don't you leave. There's plenty of places to go that's better right? Well, go there and you won't have to worry about what happens here. Complaining like children does no one any good. All it does is create more division which is exactly what the government wants and if you can't see that, you are deaf, dumb, and blind. If you honestly believe things would be better under another Clinton administration you are completely brain washed, indoctrinated and can't think for yourselves and that's why you turn to this moron, so he can guide you along like little puppy dogs. Listen people, government as a whole is ruining our country no matter who is in charge. If you want to change things quit your damn whining, wake the hell up and think for yourself and maybe, just maybe you'll see the real truth. I pray for all of you

CCP gain hundreds of billions dollars trading with US, the money never go to Chinese people, CCP use it to torture people in Xinjiang&Tibet, crack down freedom, block free speech. You Americans are literally helping CCP do evil via buying Chinese cheap products.I don't blame you , bcz everyone care about themselves. But nobody can deprive me of supporting President Trump, for me it's not a tariff war, it's a real war against CCP.

  • Trade war is a phrase the left wing media loves to use. They're all in bed with the Chinese influencers, so they'll spin it to make the guy fighting for you look like the enemy. The U.S. (and the west) has been in an economic war with China for the last 20+ years. Our previous elected officials capitulated and took the money, just like all the pundits in the press and for that our middle class was gutted and the manufacturing jobs went to china along with a lot of the intellectual rights to proprietary technology. They're selling your jobs and your economic future to a communist regime running a mercantile economic system. It's also more than a bit evil that these people are so willing to put the bulk of the worlds manufacturing into a country that uses slave labor and has no environmental regulations to speak of.. It kind of shows you what they're really all about.

  • So how should tariffs work and why are they used and imposed at all, if in effect, the companies within the country imposing the. are paying? Well, basically, what a tariff does is make a country's own goods more competitive in comparison to, say, Chinese products. It works well for the US when it comes to importing luxury cars from Europe and vice versa, so the new tariffs on Chinese goods might actually have a desirable effect. That is, of course, so long as they are imposed on goods the US produces itself. One more thing about tariffs: On the long run, tariffs on a product might hurt your local economy, if, as it is the case with German or French cars, the companies within the country use their superior position created by the tariff and charge more for their products, helping them make more money within one country, but making them utterly uncompetitive when exporting to other countries. Not trying to defend anything here, as I don't think, Trump knows, how an economy works, just saying that imposing a tariff during a trade war might not be as bad for your own economy as it is put out to be above. Then of course - why lead a trade war at all, when smart negotiation and way less temper might have been a wiser choice.

  • Look, if the price of Chinese goods in the US goes up because of Trump's tariff, then purchases of Chinese goods by the US should fall, making the Chinese lose something...unless there is no one to supply the demand EXCEPT China. So many of the companies here or in other countries that used to make things that are now made in China have gone out of business, this may be the case. So yes, the burden of these tariffs may be entirely born by US consumers. It will be like a national sales tax on consumer goods, which is a method of funding the government the Republican Party has always favored at the state level, because it falls much more heavily on the poor and middle class than on the rich. Now they can get it at the Federal level, a thing they proposed back around 1932 but had to give up on the for the last 85 years...until Trump.
