President Trump promised the American people that he would “Make America Great Again” - and a major part of that plan was to restore American strength across the globe - through an “America First” policy that brought new tariffs against imported metals that the left feared would spark a trade war - but now China has began backed down and opened the markets in order to avoid a trade war.
It just goes to show that when you<a href="https://thegoldwater.com/news/16696-America-First-Tariffs-Imposed-On-Foreign-Products"> stand tall and unafraid, </a>that anything can be accomplished, as the President of the United States of America has once again proven all naysayers wrong, despite the efforts from the Globalist controlled media to suggest a trade war was on the horizon with 24-hour-a-day “fake news” and propaganda that hurt the Dow Jones Industrial Average due to spreading paranoia and fear.
Even the left-leaning media outlet<a href="https://www.thedailybeast.com/why-china-will-lose-a-trade-war-with-trump"> The Daily Beast </a>offered a concession today that the 45th President of the United States of America was indeed right, in a piece titled, “Why China will lose a trade war with Trump,” in which laid out the inevitable victory for America if China dares challenge our President.
The Daily Beast writes:
<blockquote>““Experts, believing China holds more leverage, ignore important realities. First, that country is growing more dependent on access to the American market. In 2016, a stunning 68.0 percent of China’s overall merchandise trade surplus related to sales to the U.S. In 2017, that figure increased to 88.8 percent. Trade-surplus countries, as history shows, generally suffer more in trade wars.”</blockquote>
<blockquote>“Beijing, therefore, is generally vulnerable to being pushed around by Washington. “If trade is so unimportant to China, why has China’s trade predation lasted so long and taken so many different forms?” Alan Tonelson, an independent Washington, D.C.-based trade analyst, asked, in comments to The Daily Beast over the weekend.”</blockquote>
<blockquote>“Second, the American economy is far bigger than the Chinese one. Beijing claimed the gross domestic product of $12.84 trillion in 2017. America’s economy, by way of contrast, clocked in at $19.39 trillion last year.”</blockquote>
<blockquote>”Third, the American economy, for all its faults, is stable, and China’s, by most accounts, is on the verge of a debt crisis. China’s debt-to-GDP ratio looks like it is somewhere, depending on the amount of so-called hidden debt, between 350 percent and 400 percent.”</blockquote>
<blockquote>”In short, Trump holds the high cards when it comes to China, and, unlike his predecessors, he knows it.”</blockquote>
<blockquote>”So, yes, Ambassador Cui, we will see who lasts longer if you choose to go toe-to-toe with President No. 45.”</blockquote>
To put it simply, despite the DOW dropping 1500 points due to the overly paranoid mainstream media acting as if a nuclear bomb went off, it was actually beneficial. It's considered as a “correction,” and the Dow Jones is still soaring compared to levels it was at under Barack Obama.
When their types of paranoid overreactions happen? It shakes the unstable investors and brokers out and removes those who shouldn't be in the market in the first place from causing future problems. Let them sell, and confident, experienced traders will fill their shoes.
It's the “food chain” in action, so to speak, survival of the fittest. Those who trust the President and understand the need for America to win against China are without worry.
<a href="https://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2018/03/25/trump-china-tariffs-make-sense-editorials-debates/450914002/">USA Today </a>agrees as well, with the headline, “Donald Trump's China Tariffs Make Sense,” further underscoring the importance of American strength.
<a href="http://thehill.com/opinion/finance/380252-finally-a-president-willing-to-combat-chinese-theft">The Hill </a>ran the headline, “Finally, a president willing to combat Chinese theft,” in an additional sign of support for the tariffs.
We need to trust our President, who understands the<a href="https://thegoldwater.com/news/15843-Imperialist-China-Has-Deployed-Aircraft-Carriers-Fleet-into-Japan-Claimed-Senkakus-Islands#15844"> imperialist goals </a>of China after they continue to rob numerous nations and<a href="https://thegoldwater.com/news/14983-South-Korea-Seizes-Second-Tanker-Delivering-Oil-To-NOKO"> flex their muscles </a>in defiance of international law in the Pacific and<a href="https://thegoldwater.com/news/13018-China-To-Deploy-Special-Forces-To-Syria"> abroad</a>.
We must beat China, who long ago declared a covert <a href="https://thegoldwater.com/news/14819-President-Trump-BLASTS-China-for-Selling-Oil-to-North-Korea-as-the-Petro-Yuan-Threat-Rises"> currency war </a>on America, but did so quietly, with little media coverage of these events.
This is also part of the American foreign policy efforts to<a href="https://thegoldwater.com/news/17512-Japan-Boosts-Radar-Surveillance-to-Catch-Chinese-and-North-Korean-Ships"> give strength </a>to allies like Japan, who with an<a href="https://thegoldwater.com/news/21463-Japan-PM-Abe-Vows-To-Amend-Constitution-As-Scandal-Deepens"> amended Constitution </a>would be able to strengthen their own military and dominate the Pacific once again, as they've done for centuries.
<b>This is what President Trump campaigned upon, and as President, it's exactly what he's doing</b>
China’s Ministry of Commerce would then<a href="https://thegoldwater.com/news/21270-Trade-War-China-Responds-To-Trump-60bn-Tariffs-Video"> announce their own tariffs </a>levied at 15 percent and 25 percent on almost $3 billion of American products in 128 categories as a response to President of the United States of America's moves against China.
There was initially tough talk from China in response, but that seems to have been nothing more than nationalist rhetoric without merit.
Let me assure those people who intend to fight a trade war,” said Cui Tiankai, China’s Ambassador to the United States of America. “We will certainly fight back. We will retaliate. If people want to play tough, we will play tough with them and see who will last longer.”
The tariffs signed by President Trump are effective as of Friday, which is now imposed on numerous nations aluminum and steel products including that of the “sleeping dragon of the Pacific,” China.
On Thursday, President Trump signed a powerful memorandum that intends to place tariffs on a whopping $60 billion worth of Chinese goods heading into America, something that certainly would shatter the ambitions of the Chinese government.
<a href="https://www.whitehouse.gov/presidential-actions/presidential-memorandum-actions-united-states-related-section-301-investigation/">Presidential Memorandum on the Actions by the United States Related to the Section 301 Investigation </a>
<blockquote>”On August 14, 2017, I directed the United States Trade Representative (Trade Representative) to determine whether to investigate China’s laws, policies, practices, or actions that may be unreasonable or discriminatory and that may be harming American intellectual property rights, innovation, or technology development. On August 18, 2017, the Trade Representative initiated an investigation under section 301 of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended (the “Act”) (19 U.S.C. 2411).”</blockquote>
<blockquote>”During its investigation, the Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) consulted with appropriate advisory committees and the interagency section 301 Committee. The Trade Representative also requested consultations with the Government of China, under section 303 of the Act (19 U.S.C. 2413). The USTR held a public hearing on October 10, 2017, and two rounds of public written comment periods. The USTR received approximately 70 written submissions from academics, think tanks, law firms, trade associations, and companies.”</blockquote>
<blockquote>”The Trade Representative has advised me that the investigation supports the following findings:”</blockquote>
<blockquote>”First, China uses foreign ownership restrictions, including joint venture requirements, equity limitations, and other investment restrictions, to require or pressure technology transfer from U.S. companies to Chinese entities. China also uses administrative review and licensing procedures to require or pressure technology transfer, which, inter alia, undermines the value of U.S. investments and technology and weakens the global competitiveness of U.S. firms.”</blockquote>
<blockquote>”Second, China imposes substantial restrictions on, and intervenes in, U.S. firms’ investments and activities, including through restrictions on technology licensing terms. These restrictions deprive U.S. technology owners of the ability to bargain and set market-based terms for technology transfer. As a result, U.S. companies seeking to license technologies must do so on terms that unfairly favor Chinese recipients.”</blockquote>
<blockquote>”Third, China directs and facilitates the systematic investment in, and acquisition of, U.S. companies and assets by Chinese companies to obtain cutting-edge technologies and intellectual property and to generate large-scale technology transfer in industries deemed important by Chinese government industrial plans.”</blockquote>
<blockquote>”Fourth, China conducts and supports unauthorized intrusions into, and theft from, the computer networks of U.S. companies. These actions provide the Chinese government with unauthorized access to intellectual property, trade secrets, or confidential business information, including technical data, negotiating positions, and sensitive and proprietary internal business communications, and they also support China’s strategic development goals, including its science and technology advancement, military modernization, and economic development.”</blockquote>
<blockquote>”It is hereby directed as follows:”</blockquote>
<blockquote>”Section 1. Tariffs. (a) The Trade Representative should take all appropriate action under section 301 of the Act (19 U.S.C. 2411) to address the acts, policies, and practices of China that are unreasonable or discriminatory and that burden or restrict U.S. commerce. The Trade Representative shall consider whether such action should include increased tariffs on goods from China.”</blockquote>
<blockquote>”(b) To advance the purposes of subsection (a) of this section, the Trade Representative shall publish a proposed list of products and any intended tariff increases within 15 days of the date of this memorandum. After a period of notice and comment in accordance with section 304(b) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 2414(b)), and after consultation with appropriate agencies and committees, the Trade Representative shall, as appropriate and consistent with law, publish a final list of products and tariff increases, if any, and implement any such tariffs.”</blockquote>
<blockquote>”Sec. 2. WTO Dispute Settlement. (a) The Trade Representative shall, as appropriate and consistent with law, pursue dispute settlement in the World Trade Organization (WTO) to address China’s discriminatory licensing practices. Where appropriate and consistent with law, the Trade Representative should pursue this action in cooperation with other WTO members to address China’s unfair trade practices.”</blockquote>
<blockquote>”(b) Within 60 days of the date of this memorandum, the Trade Representative shall report to me his progress under subsection (a) of this section.”</blockquote>
<blockquote>”Sec. 3. Investment Restrictions. (a) The Secretary of the Treasury (Secretary), in consultation with other senior executive branch officials the Secretary deems appropriate, shall propose executive branch action, as appropriate and consistent with law, and using any available statutory authority, to address concerns about investment in the United States directed or facilitated by China in industries or technologies deemed important to the United States.”</blockquote>
<blockquote>”(b) Within 60 days of the date of this memorandum, the Secretary shall report to me his progress under subsection (a) of this section.”</blockquote>
<blockquote>”Sec. 4. Publication. The Trade Representative is authorized and directed to publish this memorandum in the Federal Register.”</blockquote>
<blockquote>”DONALD J. TRUMP”</blockquote>
President Trump<a href="https://thegoldwater.com/news/12928-Trump-Poised-to-Take-Decisive-Trade-Action-Against-China"> promised the American people </a>we would win against China, and we will. Trust on President Trump's plan, ignore the “fake news,” and know that he understands the eventual<a href="https://thegoldwater.com/news/12847-China-And-US-In-Race-To-Militarize-AI"> clash of China </a>versus the United States of America, which will one day occur.
China has systematically hacked the United States of America and stolen both trade secrets and military blueprints for years, always getting away with it until President Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions began to<a href="https://thegoldwater.com/news/12809-DOJ-Unseals-Indictments-against-Chinese-Hackers-at-Cybersecurity-Firms-for-Theft-of-Trade-Secrets"> take down the Chinese threat</a>.
Obama allowed China to run wild, disrespecting the Presidency, while Clinton Foundation members were engaged in<a href="https://thegoldwater.com/news/12676-Clinton-Foundation-Former-Executive-tied-to-Kindergarten-Child-Sex-Drugging-Scandal-in-China"> XXX </a>inside the Communist nation while the Chinese were simultaneously winning against America.
Democrats have no idea how to handle foreign policy, period.
President Trump is having none of this degenerate nonsense.
The Wall Street Journal reports today that<a href="https://www.wsj.com/articles/u-s-china-quietly-seek-trade-solutions-after-days-of-loud-threats-1522018524"> China is now coming to the table </a>for solutions, since it knows it will lose, proving that the President was right again.
The global chess match now has a new Chessmaster playing, and that is President Trump, who will not back down, and never allow America to be dethroned from its global leadership role.
