  1. So, Putin tells Trump to shake his fist at China, oh, and send a carrier and support fleet to Iran. Market face plants, but that’s ok, because volatility, disruption and uncertainty in the US is GOOD for Russia. Not so good for Trump, who sees stock index level as some sort of ratings analog for his Presidency. Not sure when the dolt will make the connection between “breaking things”, markets and the economy, but his tough guy posturing is really tiresome.

  2. H, this deal looks dead and if/when the new tariffs happen I don’t think we will see any meaningful negotiations between the U.S./China to come. China’s main goal appears to delay the U.S. till elections and not actually sign a deal in good faith that addresses U.S. core needs. So, what is stopping the U.S. from sending trade representatives out to other Asian-Pacific countries, Mexico, etc to start taking over China’s value-added manufacturing exports business? I think this is a very rational alternative that will weaken China’s negotiating stance and possibly bring them to the table in the future; it is also very beneficial just due to diversification of supply chains out of China. Not saying said countries will take over China’s export business to the U.S., but they will make a meaningful difference on China’s U.S. export business.

    I do realize that Trump the Tariff Man isn’t rationale and hasn’t treated our global allies in good faith, but Bob and Steve should’ve brought this up during the early negotiations with China as a alternative plan.

    If you have time I would like your thoughts on this matter. Thanks H.

      Some US companies are already looking for alternative manufacturing suppliers.

      • Yes you are right, but idk why the U.S. government isn’t (more) involved since this has such a crucial impact on global socioeconomic health. Shouldn’t the U.S. Commerce Department and USTR be involved in promoting viable alternatives, or are we just not hearing about this in the news? Just some stuff that bothers me because it is obvious that China won’t change its ways and the tariffs are a massive burden on everyone.

        Rant ended lol.
