    Remember what I said about leverage.

    The opposition just falls off the face of the planet.

    Remember how the Lefties in the pocket of the Chinese Communists assured us that tariffs would only be inflationary?

    You can see by the liberal responses in this thread that they have nothing.

    They were bested by Trump yet again.

    So much winning!

    Kind of like the House & the Arizona Senate race?
    Maybe if you win some more you can still loose the Senate. :)

    I just love watching Democrats swoon in defeat. Thousands of Liberal post touting the beginning of a cold war between China and US and Trump wins again.

    Kind of like the Justice Department ruling Trump has every right to appoint Whitaker.

    Just more Constitutional crises averted over and over and over lol

    Now that you mention it, it does seem like it's about time for Spanky to declare victory and the deficit to go up another 12%.

    The graph depicts China's tariffs between the years 1992 and 2016. Whatever was said two weeks ago would not be applicable

    You know something is poisonous when some people hate the president so much they wish harm and ill will on the place they live and people they live with.

    Applauding our enemies having leverage or clapping if our economy turns south is really sick. Just because they hate the president?

    You have the order mixed up. People get angry with the President when they discover he is to dumb to realize our competitors have leverage and he is destroying the economy.

    They are still tracking for over a $500,768.53M in trade deficit this year.

    Xi received applause Saturday when he told the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Papua New Guinea that implementing tariffs and breaking up supply chains was “short-sighted” and “doomed to failure.”

    Vice president Pence - who in recent weeks has been pushing an aggressive anti-China agenda, spoke next - threw down the gauntlet to China on trade and security in the region, saying the US will not back down from its trade dispute with China, and might even double its tariffs, unless Beijing bows to U.S. demands: “we have taken decisive action to address our imbalance with China,” adding that "we put tariffs on $250 billion in Chinese goods, and we could more than double that number."

    The major issue is the cheap labor China has. By having mass production of quality goods, they're about to churn out a factory that far surpasses US Production(as I said from 2014 onward, our economy had a production weakness.) Not just in manufacturing, but in overall goods.

    That's why my economic surge proposal counts on turning millions of Americans into entrepreneurs and mass increasing production. It's an economic arms race, that can't be solved by tariffs. Its way too late for that.

    Dems probably stole those seats like they're trying to do in Florida and Georgia. If not for election fraud, obstruction, and having to support their illegal voter base, no one in this country would know who they were.
