  • All china has it do to defeat america is wait. China will naturally win. The tariffs are americas insecurity and inferiority being displayed on stage. Usa up to no good again! They have met their match with china.

  • People don't like paying Trumps tariffs on Chinese goods. *Then don't buy American goods instead* they don't have any tariffs on them in the first place. That's in the end is the whole point. Giving US workers a fair playing field a fair chance. There are some "good" people out there that are total indifferent to the working condition the the average Chinese worker has to endure, and would like these working conditions imported into the US. I say NO, I say Americans workers deserve better. By buying "Made in the USA" it's your family, your friends in the end that you are supporting. Time to chose, the fence is getting a little crowded! It's full of snowflakes.

  • You dont understand, Trump and the US DO NOT want China to back down. They are actually HAPPY that China decides to fight back hahaha Let CHINA paint themselves into a corner, AND give the americans an excuse to put up tariffs against them.

  • the 'fair trade' that trump wants include the point for china to remove their subsidies to high tech . in other hand its okay for usa to subsidies their own high tech. whether you like it or not, this trade war will last long. no countries will accept such an insult.

  • China is facing economic problems. China's economy is in big trouble. Imposing higher tariffs on Chinese imports has severely affected the slowdown in China's production. Whining the Pooh Xi Jinping has been in hiding for few weeks facing the negative criticism of the Chinese people for his poorly handling China's economy. Let's come together to stop China from stealing once and for all. Stealing is embarrassing.

  • Trumptard already knows that his tariffs are hurting US companies. The proof of that is the removing of Apple products from the tariffs list. Trumptard doesn't want to get blamed for killing off the US remaining electronic company, a giant with $1 trillion valuation. But Apple can't escape the Chinese consumers wrath as this trade war become a long term economic war which inevitable lead to a complete decoupling of Sino-US technological and economic interdependency. The second proof of Trumptard running scared is his appealing to voters patriotism in his trade fight with China. The puffing is running out of air, trade war is no longer easy to win for Trumptard, he knows! Lmao!🤣😂🤣😂

  • US just wanted to continue to rule the world militarily and economically. Tariff and other demands are just a ploy to contain China rise. The Chinese will always remember the humiliation brought about by the Western powers and their hypocrisy in the past. This is a different China they are dealing with and there is no way they would be begging the erratic Orange guy. The game will never end even US impose tariff on all goods imported from China

  • I'm not a Trump supporter, but I do need to point out that Trump's policy will put the USA on par with Europe relating to tariffs on China. The EU has survived with higher priced Chinese goods, so to should the USA. It doesn't make the situation better just an observation. If the US does continue to grow (economically) China will now have to face the reality that they are not as invincible as they thought. And they will identified in a negative sense. What will the Chinese government do if much of the world sees them in a negative sense? . This could be the single policy that Trump implements and much of the world says, "Hhhmm well that's okay."

  • "It will be a lot of money coming into the coffers of the United States" .... yes it will.....from the pockets of the American consumer, it is a tax on them, China does not pay a dime. Trumps supporters are too stupid to understand what a tariff is, they are cheering on a tax that they will have to pay on the items they need everyday

  • China is more busy with deleveraging their economy than fighting a trade war.

  • Does anybody know whether this will be Trump’s fifth or seventh bankruptcy?

  • Tariffs are to tax American businesses and consumers for government revenue. Simple.
