  1. If we think on how this plays out, the ammunition China has gets run out fairly quickly on tariffs.
    So then what’s next? Treasuries? Investment capital?

    Very dangerous game Trump administration is playing, and now they’ve (again) backed themselves into a corner on tit for tat. Their last announcement citing a further escalation if China retaliated – which they did.

    As a few experts have already predicted this likely gets worse before it gets better.

    Xi should be all in on enforcing the NK sanctions now. Just like the G-6 (now) is jumping at the chance to rewrite the Iran deal after being denigrated ad nauseam. Can this be all Trump, or is he surrounded by a bunch of morons as well.

      It’s not all Trump. His people are worse. Even the “leader of the resistance” himself one Charles Ellis Schumer is lauding Trump’s move on China and going as far as to say that it was he who actually suggested to Trump the move three weeks ago.

      • #1, trump used to also be a democrat; #2, it’s not the party, it’s the mentality; #3 a lot of people also loathe Schumer . . .

        However, NO ONE IS WORSE THAN TRUMP.

    How about China revoking Ivanka’s patents and the $500 million (+$500 million from chinese banks) loan to the Indonesian development that Trump has a contract with. That’ll hurt Trump more than screwing his base.

    • I would like to see China throw her cheap crap in his face — and his own line of ties —
      disclose his business relationship and construction loan to all of America —
      disclose how much money he makes that relates to his personal trump org business ties to China — disclose how much Chinese steel he purchased for his buildings construction, not USA steel —
      and then ran his campaign mouth about the horrible companies that do not buy only USA Steel
