US President Donald Trump has said that his tariff policies have hurt the Chinese economy and that he has “a lot more to do” to the country.

In a phone-in interview with Fox News, Trump said US tariffs on Chinese goods are having a “big impact” and that the Chinese have lived too well for too long.

Trump began imposing tariffs on hundreds of billions of dollars worth of Chinese imports in January 2018, with Beijing retaliating by slapping tariffs on US goods in response.

Top US officials have been using aggressive rhetoric against China in recent weeks, painting it as a grave threat to US interests.

 

 

On Wednesday, FBI director Christopher Wray said that China represents the “broadest, most complicated, most long-term” threat to the US and that it is waging a massive influence campaign over American voters ahead of the November midterm elections.

Wray said that China was trying “to get secret information about our trade, our ideas, and innovations” using “an expanding set of unconventional methods each time to achieve their goals”and warned that economic espionage from China would affect companies in all sectors of the US economy.

The US has also slapped sanctions on the Chinese military industry over its cooperation with Russia. Beijing has shown less interest in pursuing a adversarial relations with the US, but has warned that there will be “consequences” if it did not remedy the “mistake.”

    Consider, too, that the Chinese have had the longest expansion in world history, at the expense of the USA

    When Deng Xiaopiong took over China, after Mao died in 1976, and begin allowing private enterprise, the Chinese economy has expanded, even during major recessions during that time.

    Trump is right, they have been growing our economy for over 40 years at our expense.

    In business, when done properly as Trump did with his banks, those who you are in debt to you are your servants, if they ever want to see a dime of their money. Ya'll got it backwards, when Trump is at the helm.

    The PRC is trapped whether they like it or not. Trump played this game well. He got rich of off other people's money. People he owed financed him more anyway, because they had no other choice. Watch and see how he does the same with the PRC. They have no choice. Sooner or later, they will make a deal with Trump. Just saying...

    How can we slap any nation that we are 15-20 trillion in debt to? Do our sanctions intimidate them? The Lord's hand of protection is off of the USA. When countries like N. Korea and Mexico will mock us, then what more is needed to awaken this nation? Trump isn't JFK. Who is afraid of us now? We are living off of past glory, and on our own pride. Jeremiah 50 and 51. WE HAVE NOT REPENTED, as a nation!!!
