    Oh sure it has. It's kinda weird how the Left carries water for the Chinese on Every. Single. Issue.

    Whether it's our Universities, NBA, Nike or Taylor Swift, the Chinese say "Jump!" and the Left says "How High?"

    DISPATCHES FROM THE EDUCATION APOCALYPSE:

    “Eastman, the music school of the University of Rochester, has decided to remove all Korean students from their Philharmonia Orchestra for their short tour of China. China refused to issue visas for Korean students, forcing Eastman to either remove them or cancel their tour. Eastman has shockingly chosen to go with the former.” ​

    you forgot, many right are also doing the same, it all come down to greed. you can say whatever you want, but china can basically shut down entry to their market. so up to you if you want take the loss or not. but hey if you care about HK that much, might want start with Saudy 1st on their human right. Oh wait, trump just sell $$$ of weapon for them to bomb more yemen. remember Trump is the one who said Xi act responsible in HK protest.

    Sure. Except that we continue to a lot of business with them, and have added a massive tariff stream all without a tariff induced spike in consumer prices, so we are doing very well under Trump's trade practices.

    really so how come trump is desperate for a deal, so how come he didn't put 45% on ALL goods, instead put 10%, and stop the additional 250B. how come the deficit is widening rather than shrinking lol

    If I was China I would hold steady and wait to see what the impeachment thing is going to do to the USA.

    It's part of the negotiation to get China to agree to end their industrial espionage, right now they have decided it is in their national interests to pay the tariffs rather than stop the espionage. Trump is helping them find their price point, a process that is rolling $Billions into the US Treasury while they determine what tariff levels are high enough that it's worth it to agree to stop stealing from us.
    Few things funnier than a widening deficit, but is it really? Let's have a look, YTD August (latest numbers available):

    Our trade deficit grew 9% YTD August 2018 vs 2017

    Our trade deficit grew 2% YTD 2019 v 2018.

    https://www.census.gov/foreign-trade/balance/c0004.html

    Trump has reduced the rate of growth by 83%. And collected a BOATLOAD of $Tariffs in the effort.

    Holy Crap, look at that spike at the right, that's all Trump's work.

    [​IMG]

    The American Worker Hating Left and anti-Trumpers seem to think it's immoral for us to chage for access to our markets just like every other nation does. Obama's final quarter only collected $37.21B (seasonally adjusted, annualized). Trump last quarter collected $80.93B. Why should Trump sell for $37.21B what our trading partners are will to pay $80.93B for? You guys scream like a butchered hog at any decrease is US corporate taxes, and then scream even louder at any tax increase on Foreign Suppliers.

    If you guys want to represent foreign interests over US interests, what does that make you?
