There is something else all should remember. China holds the most US Debt of anyone. For our right wing. That means they own a lot of us. If they call that debt, or stop buying it what happens to the USA. Yesterday they let their currency float and look what it did to our Market. Dictator Trump understands none of this as we saw in the papers today he had his underlings trying to cover his statements with logic, since Trump nor the far right has none of that. Read the comments in the news, and on line from the far right enablers and you know Trump has about a 5th grade mentally which carries down.

Is he talking about Trump's $16 Billion bailout of farmers and his new promise to do it again?


 Chickenfeed compared to the new green deal which cost estimates are $30 trillion dollars but liberals don't care about the waste.


Ah  yes. I remember the "snowflake defense" from when my sons were in Jr High. "Yeah, I got bad grades but JIMMY  is completely flunking out".   I remember when we had president(s) who realized they were being judged on what THEY DID and not on some kind of "what about" scale.   Face it, Trump is incompetent and, I would point out, AOC has not spent a single dollar on the New Green Deal while Trump's Socialist state support of companies no longer capable of competing has cost billions NOW. 

 

Not only are you trying to get Trump off the hook by saying other people are worse (ah, Jr High) but you are comparing it to imaginary spending as well.

Being fair is racist to the left.  That's all you have is to call the man racist?

 

Give it up already since you know already that you won't have a Democrat President until at least 2024 or maybe further if you keep this "everything is free" attitude up.

China allowing their currency to de-value will hurt the Chinese people a little. Not so much if they buy products Made in China, which they already do, and will probably do more so now.

With the Yuan lower, China will have an advantage over the US selling their goods to other countries (They'll be cheaper). This also applies to American companies in Taiwan, Vietnam, Mexico, and so on.

If the US Dollar de-valued it would be more of a shock for Americans since the American consumers rely heavily on imports - imports with American brand names.

China seems to be determined to win this trade war.


Yes. I am reading that China is convinced that Trump can not be trusted to actually make a deal.  Either through incompetence or because he lets Fox and his base determine the terms of any deal.  That changes daily. The Chinese are staying in a holding pattern until after the 2020 elections. They are patient and have long memories.  My guess is they will do all they can to cause Trump to look bad for reelection.  


There's no holding pattern since China knows that Trump will occupy the Presidency until 2024.  There's no chance of one of the giveaway artists winning!


Yep. no chance at all......unless China causes a ton more pain to our agricultural base or if they unfairly compete with other American exports.  Maybe when the flood our appliance and auto markets with products built with non-tariff steel (and thus cheaper)?

 

Maybe if Angela Merkel talks about what a moron Trump really is as part of her farewell speech.  Maybe if Emmanuel Macron talks about how untrustworthy he thinks Trump is.  Maybe after Nancy refuses to ratify the renamed NAFTA and Trump has to face all the constituents he screwed by not being able to complete any deals? 

 

Oh, the list of what is going to happen next year is endless. 


Unless nothing.  The Socialists don't stand a chance of winning with their "I'll give you more than that guy speech"!

 

It isn't going to be freebies for everyone for four plus years!

He doesn't need a platform for his base to stick with him since they already think he's a genius doing great work. No one can find any of this great work, but they believe it exist so that's what matters.
