    All of this has been going on...and has been ignored by previous administrations...for decades.
    And on top of that nastiness by the Chinese, the Russians have hacked into and tried to affect our elections. Only Trump can stop these two evil powers that stalk us.

    I don't know about that, but he's the only one doing anything about it even though he's getting a lot of opposition.

    Obama was a lead from behind type of guy. He was pretty limp when it came to protecting the US economy.
    The art of war teaches us to rely not on the likelihood of the enemy's not coming, but on our own readiness to receive him; not on the chance of his not attacking, but rather on the fact that we have made our position unassailable.

    Apparently this is true, but not due to Trump campaign orders. Presumably other supporters of his are doing this?

    This is a permanent battle. Every dollar of Chinese surplus is invested in destroying the USA. Their stated national goal is to be the worlds manufacturer. Where does that leave us? We become a agricultural colony.
    I thought the "National Emergency" was immigration?

    Seems to me, since TRump became President, everything has become a National Emergency.

    China, N. Korea, Iran, Nato, TPP, Immigration.

    And some things, like GLOBAL WARMING no longer are.

    This guys needs to be removed from office. Now. Today.

    Yeah, I don't always have a problem when a stupid man tries to do stupid things, but I do when they wield a lot of power. The reality is, if Trump was actually able, with the stroke of a pen, to cease all American corporate activity in China, it would rapidly create a deep recession, which is more traceable to a presidential action, than any before it in US history. At that point, I wouldn't just support his removal from office, I would hope he joins the exclusive club of US presidents who **** their pants in public.

    It seems as if Trump got spooked by market reaction to his tariffs, started to back down, then got furious over reports that he was backing down and reversed course again.
    Trump expresses regret about escalating China trade war, then reverses course and says he wishes he raised tariffs higher
    IARRITZ, France — President Trump conceded regret Sunday morning about his escalating trade war with China before reversing course in the afternoon and saying he only wished he had raised the tariffs higher.
    It was a head-spinning about-face after the president evinced rare second thoughts on a key issue, even as White House officials said his comments had been “misinterpreted.”
    I have to laugh at his supporters that backed him because he was so decisive. Because he literally doesn't know anything, he's persuaded by the last thing that happens or the last person he speaks to.
