    Seems that you dont like US citizens that are finally getting real jobs that are competitive to China. Do you hate people who just want to feed their families? Do you want children to starve?

    Stating facts is not cheering anything. It's simply stating facts. If I tell someone that if they jump off that cliff they are going to die, it does not mean I am cheering them on to jump off the cliff.

    To note that Trump had painted himself into a corner is simply noting the realities of the situation. China concerns itself with the big picture. All we care about is the next earnings statement and the next election. I do not like that or cheer that, it's just how it is.

    No, I do not want to see US Citizens have to take jobs that are "competitive" with Chinese jobs. It's hard enough at $9.00 an hour let alone $3.00 an hour.

    Their economy slipped. Trump wants to do the same. Are we saying our economy isn't doing as well as some would lead us to believe?

    Trump couldn't believe China stopped buying Soy Beans and Wheat.

    I found out where Trump got his fake Japanese accent from. The one he uses to beg Japan's Prime Minister to buy soy beans and wheat that China no longer buys.

    Are lefties high fiving each other over it? The story is from CNBC which quotes Bloomburg which in turn credits unnamed "sources who are familiar". Doesn't it sound like CNBC is spreading unverified propaganda for foreign agents in order to undermine the agenda of the President of the United States?
