Graham says when it comes to a trade war US has more bullets than China


>>Martha: IT’S POSSIBLE WE MAY NOT SEE A SCENE LIKE THAT ANYTIME SOON, ALTHOUGH THE PRESIDENT HAS WORKED HARD TO WORK OUT TRADE IN AN AREA THAT COULD BE NEGOTIATED WITH CHINA TO PRESERVE THE GOOD PERSONAL RELATIONS HE HAD WITH THE PRESIDENCY. THESE TWEETS FROM OVER AN HOUR AGO TELLING A DIFFERENT STORY TONIGHT, STARTING OCTOBER 1, THE $250 BILLION FROM CHINA TAXED AT 25% ARE GOING TO 30% WITH GOODS AND PRODUCTS FROM CHINA THAT WERE TAXED IN SEPTEMBER 1 OR 10% WILL GO TO 50% — YOU GET THE IDEA. THAT WAS AFTER PRESIDENT TRUMP ORDERED U.S. COMPANIES TO STOP DOING BUSINESS WITH CHINA EARLIER IN THE DAY. HE SAID FIND OTHER SUPPLY CHAINS, A DEMAND NOT LOST ON THE U.S. MARKET DOWN 600 POINTS IN A VERY ROUGH FRIDAY FOR THEM. THIS ALL IN THE BACKGROUND, YOU’VE GOT TENSIONS MOUNTING IN HONG KONG. THE AIRPORT IS, YOU KNOW, BRACING FOR MORE PROTESTS THERE. AND YOU HAVE A STORY THIS WEEK ABOUT THE ESTIMATES THAT CHINA’S MILITARY MIGHT EXCEED HOURS IN THE PACIFIC. ALL THESE THINGS ARE PRETTY TOUGH TO FIND A BALANCE OF TRUST ON A TRADE DEAL. JOINING ME NOW, CHAIRMAN OF THE SENATE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE, SENATOR LINDSEY GRAHAM. GOOD TO SEE YOU AS ALWAYS. WHAT YOU MAKE ABOUT THE PRESIDENT’S TACTICS ON CHINA?>>I LIKE IT. THE GOAL IS TO GET CHINA TO STOP CHEATING THE UNITED STATES OUT OF MARKETSHARE, PLAYED BY THE RULES THAT EVERYBODY IN THE WORLD PLAYS BY. WE HAD A DEAL SEVERAL MONTHS AGO AND THEY BACKED OUT OF IT. WHEN IT COMES TO A TRADE WAR, WE GOT MORE BULLETS THAN THEY DO. THE PRESIDENT IS DETERMINED TO GET CHINA TO CHANGE THEIR BEHAVIOR AND I’M 100% WITH IT.>>Martha: OBVIOUSLY IF YOU’RE PLAYING THE GAME, IT’S A TOUGH PART. THIS IS WHERE YOU NEED TO DIG IN. EVERYONE HAS SAID FROM THE GET-GO THAT THIS IS, YOU KNOW, A FIGHT THAT SHOULD HAPPEN AT SOME POINT. IT’S HAPPENING NOW. WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE MARKET TODAY, OBVIOUSLY SOME FLUCTUATIONS THAT ARE A LITTLE BIT QUEASY INDUCING FOR A LOT OF FOLKS OUT THERE. WHAT DO YOU SAY TO AMERICANS WHO SAY, YOU KNOW WHAT? THIS’LL HURT A LITTLE MORE THAN WE THOUGHT.>>DON’T TRUST WALL STREET TO TAKE CARE OF CHINA. IF THEY WERE A DEAL WITH CHINA EVEN THOUGH THERE WOULD BE A TERRIBLE DEAL, THE STOCK MARKET WOULD GO UP A THOUSAND POINTS. TEN YEARS FROM NOW WE WOULD REAP THE BENEFITS, REAP THE CONSEQUENCES OF THAT TERRIBLE DEAL. THE STOCK MARKET DOESN’T IMPRESS ME AT ALL WHEN IT COMES TO CHINA. WHAT IMPRESSES ME IS THE PRESIDENT’S DETERMINATION TO GET THEM TO CHANGE THEIR BEHAVIOR. THEY SELL US A LOT MORE THAN WE BUY FROM THEM. WE CAN PUT TARIFFS ON A LOT MORE PRODUCTS COMING OUT OF CHINA THEN THEY CAN PUT TARIFFS GOING FROM CHINA TO THE UNITED STATES. PAYING NOW ARE PAYING LATER WHEN IT COMES TO CHINA, MR. PRESIDENT, KEEP IT UP. YOU ARE THE ONLY GUY IN MY LIFETIME WHO HAS TAKEN ON CHINA AND YOU’VE GOT A GOOD HAND. PLAY IT OUT.>>Martha: DO YOU THINK THERE WILL BE A TRUST FACTOR HERE? HOW DO YOU MAKE A DEAL WITH SOMEBODY WHO HAS ALREADY PULLED BACK FROM EARLIER AGREEMENTS, AS YOU SAID. THEY PROMISED THING. I LOOK AT THE FENTYNOL ISSUE, THE PRESIDENT SAID HE WAS GOING TO MAKE SURE THAT THESE FENCE AND FENTYNOL SHIPMENTS ARE STOPPED. HOW DO YOU COME TO ANY AGREEMENT? THERE’S NO TRUST AT ALL.>>IT’S A MATTER OF VERIFYING. HOW DO WE TAKE THE TARIFFS OFF WHEN THEY CHANGE THEIR BEHAVIOR? YOU GOT TO HAVE METRICS, TRANSPARENCY. WE ARE NOT GOING TO RELIEVE TARIFFS, HOPING THEY WILL DO BETTER. WE WILL TIE THEIR BEHAVIOR TO WHAT WE DO. THERE ARE PLENTY OF WAYS THEY CAN CONSTRUCT A VERIFIABLE SYSTEM, GETTING THEM IN THE WTO AS A DEVELOPED NATION IS A WHOLE NEW SET OF RULES COMPARED OF WHAT THEY LIVE IN THE DAY. I THINK WE CAN DO THIS AND HERE’S WHAT I TELL THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. IF DONALD TRUMP DOESN’T DO IT, WHO ELSE WILL? IF YOU DON’T DO IT, YOU ARE GOING TO LOSE THE WORLD TO CHINA.>>Martha: THEY UNDERSTAND THE THINGS THAT MARKETS ARE NOT HAPPY ABOUT ARE THE COMMENTS FROM THE FED CHAIRMAN POWELL. THE PRESIDENT SAID WHO’S OUR BITTER ENEMY, JAY POWELL OR CHAIRMAN XI?>>TRUMP IS A STREET FIGHTER. WE HAVE AN INDEPENDENT FEDERAL RESERVE SO WE DO NOT PLAY POLITICS WITH INTEREST RATES. THERE IS NO GETTING AROUND THIS PAIR THE WORLD ECONOMY IS GOING TO BE EFFECTIVE AS WE GET IN A FIGHT WITH CHINA. THEY ARE GOING TO HURT MORE THAN WE WILL AND OTHER PEOPLE WHO DEPEND ON CHINA ARE GOING TO FEEL THE PAIN. IT’S GOING TO AFFECT WALMART AND OTHER PLACES. PAYING NOW, ARE YOU GOING TO PAY LATER? ONE THING I CAN SAY, VERY IMPORTANT. THE LONGER THIS GOES, THE MORE PEOPLE BEGIN TO MOVE OUT OF CHINA AND CREATE SUPPLY CHAINS OUTSIDE OF CHINA SO THE TARIFFS MAKE IT MORE COST-EFFECTIVE FOR YOU TO DO BUSINESS OUTSIDE OF CHINA.>>Martha: THEY ARE ALREADY MOVING THE SUPPLY CHAINS OUT FROM ALL OF THIS. I WANT TO ASK YOU A QUICK QUESTION FROM AFGHANISTAN PRODUCING A DEAL COMING TOGETHER WITH THE TALIBAN AND AFGHAN GOVERNMENT IN TERMS OF OUR ROLE IN IT? THIS IS SOMETHING YOU ARE VERY TREPIDATION IS.>>I HOPE WE CAN GET A DEAL WHERE THE TELE- BAN ACT LIKE CIVILIZED PEOPLE WHERE WE GET BACK TO WHERE THE TALIBAN DON’T KILL WOMEN FOR SUPPORT. 80% REJECT TALIBAN RULE BUT CAN END THAT PART, I DO NOT TRUST THE TALIBAN TO TAKE CARE OF AMERICAN INTEREST AT HOME OR ABROAD. THE TALIBAN CANNOT BE TRUSTED TO EVEN IF THEY WANTED TO PLAY BY THE RULES, THEY DON’T HAVE DRONES, THEY DO NOT HAVE AN INTELLIGENCE APPARATUS LIKE WE DO. THEY WOULD BE VERY DANGEROUS FOR US TO GIVE UP THE COUNTERTERRORISM PLATFORM AND CAPABILITIES. WE HAVE AFGHANISTAN TO MONITOR AL QAEDA AND ISIS. THEY WILL NOT DO A PEACE DEAL, SO WHEN IT COMES TO TRUSTING THE TELE- BAN TO TAKE CARE OF AMERICA, THE ONLY PEOPLE I TRUSTED TAKE CARE OF AMERICA IS AMERICAN SOLDIERS AND AMERICAN INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITIES.

  • Those who invested in China are trying to end US tariffs to save their own turncoat investments and don't care about America prosperity. This trade war needs to be settled now without regard for those who invested in China. They will be better off investing in the USA so get on board or suffer the loss.

  • It is not taking on china it is taking on red communist china.A very big difference.If America loses this tariff trade then we are done.The commie chinese will take us over.

  • Do Americanโ€™s realize that Chinaโ€™s leader declared himself โ€œforeverโ€ President of China and a โ€œgodโ€ and that everything he says is immediately and directly written down as Law in China? Trumps sarcastic statement during a press conference saying he was โ€œthe chosen oneโ€ to set things right with China that past US Presidents Failed to Address probably hit Chinaโ€™s new โ€œgod kingโ€ pretty hard. Chinas middle class grew 400% in the past 25 years and Americaโ€™s middle class went to -1% decline. This is a fact. They were being allowed to parasitize us. Thank the real god for President Trump.

  • America was Cyber attached by Russia in 2016. Russia won the Cyber battle, and installed Trump in the Whitehouse. If Trump wins in 2020, Russia wins the Cyber War. The USA will be history.

  • Walter Dumbrowski says:

    This is more completed than one can explain in a comment . When this started China had very little industrial capabilities

  • Tripe! The man is completely on hinged. Lindsey Graham Donald Trump mask Iโ€™ll match. Theyโ€™re all in the swamp going to hell. We took this economy completely tanks and they blame it on Obama LOL

  • Bryant Whittaker says:

    An by americas own hand it should had never gotten involved with china in the first place america managed to dismantle communist russia. but had the ignorance to go through the back doors an build up communist china by bill an hillary clinton made no sense to me while america looked at obama as the enemy against the usa not even knowing that americas decline or demise had already been placed into motion well before obama had ever got into office but blamed him as the master mind of everything but then on the other hand it takes a wicked people of a nation to vote an place wicked people in positions of leadership. and power an that the u.s. government is a product of it's people you can't expect a government to change if the people of a that nation won't change a country that has no spiritual foundation morals values and honesty an integrity also love for others (with it being the most rasist country on earth) which america has none of this. will be a country that is doomed to fail 100%.

  • Here's the truth. We are after china becouse we know they are going to be #1. We became the richest economy with the healthiest middle class because of cheap goods from China. We didn't care about trade imbalance then.

  • "We've got more bullets than they do"~That was the same exact logic we used during the Vietnam War and look how that turned out for us. We may have more financial levers than they do, but their people are used to sacrifice and suffering. Let's not forget, China is a Communist/Military State, meaning that their government has the ability to force their people to fall in line with the national mission.

    When was the last time Americans truly sacrificed and suffered for the greater good? You'd have to go all the way back to WWII and the Great Depression. Americans are too comfortable and complacent. The Chinese know that at the slightest hint of a recession or disruption in our daily self-indulgent lives, we will easily vote our leaders out of office. All China has to do is wait for the next set of American leaders to come in and change course towards a more China-friendly path. As the old saying goes, "Asians have patience".

    The Chinese have been around for thousands of years. They know how to play long ball. We do not.

  • More bullets don't matter had that in nam didn't win. Too many cowards got deferments. Bonespurs, missionary work. At least with college you had to make the grades. Unless your family was rich then you could buy your way through college and bribe the draft board to give you the right number. Then you can lie and say you supported the war.

  • Why didn't previous President take care of these insane trade deficits with China? because they had no balls and they were corrupt.

  • China's military will be more in the Pacific then USA. I blame it on Obama for downsizing the military. Teddy Roosevelt at a big stick saying, to my understanding a largest military in the world not to start wars but to prevents Wars

  • When China pull the plug, our economy will be dead. We owe them 1.3 trillion and we here making big mouth as if we're going to win anything. The day we started invading countries around the globe is the day we lost our empire. Like it or not, China will take our place in 15-20yrs if not sooner.

  • OC Vegas Property says:

    Let's make some other poor countries great like Thailand, Vietnam a d others. F-China. They screwing us and polluting the world

  • GRAHAM IS A TOTAL EMBARRASSMENT. HOW OLD DO YOH HAVE TO BE TO BE A MEMBER OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY……BETWEEN 4 AND 7 YEARS. MORE BULLETS THAN THEY HAVE ". WHAT SORT OF CHILDISH MENTALITY IS THAT. TRUMPS TANTRUMS AND THE REPUBLICAN PARTY BACKING THE BULLY IN THE PLAYGROUND IS UNBELIEVABLE. NO WONDER THE WORLD IS LAUGHING AT US, AND THE WAY THINGS ARE GOING 'THEY' WILL BE WANTING TO BUY BITS OF AMERICA, INSTEAD OF US BUYING GREENLAND, BECAUSE OF THE WAY TRUMP IS TEARING THE COUNTRY APART. GET OFF YOUR KNEES GRAHAM HE WILL TURN ON YOU AGAIN, BE A MAN AND KEEP YOUR RESPECT. I CAN NO LONGER VOTE FOR THE REPUBLICAN PARTY IN 2020 BECAUSE I REGRET VOTING FOR TRUMP LAST TIME.

  • What Trump doesn't tell the American people is that China doesn't only sell products in America it also buys American products this is the reason why China is not losing the Tariff war. You know who is losing, American farmers and American products sold around the world made in China. If China only sold their products to the U.S. the U.S. would have win long time ago. Remember China and the U.S. are or were trading partners.

  • Wow, drumph farts and tells you following flunkies its perfume and you buy it. Suckers, The whole lot of ya. SANDERS 2020 bitches!!!!

  • Graham is a little swizzle he will say anything to be in a good position to who ever is in power. He will even say that there is no recession when there is one in farmland yes farmers are already in recession and almost bankrupt starting sep first China has canceled all purchases of farm products from America. Yes China doesn't only dump their products on American soil they "BUY" American products.

  • Graham keeps threatening everyone, telling them we can kick their butts because of our armed forces. I will say one thing…..VIETNAM. This small backward country kicked are arse because they did not need coke machines running on generators in the jungle. Our big mouths have a habit of getting us into trouble, from which we have to find an escape excuse. Trump and Graham are famous for their mouths being ten seconds ahead of their brains, then they start back tracking, grow up and act like adults.

  • Bryant Whittaker says:

    Please keep in mind that it was bill clinton that gave china most favorite nation status an then brought them into the world trade system. america built china which has it turning out to be a problem for it an the world if it leads to possible serious job losses or along with possible economic collapse or worse a war

  • Juan Zingarello says:

    Chinas military will NEVER surpass the US. I donโ€™t care what the media says. The amount this country spend in military is more than the top 10 countries combined.

  • oldtimedrumcorps says:

    When the economy starts its serious tanking over China the big boys will call Trump on the carpet and what will he do blame someone else like hes setting up the FED as we speak . Hillary never took blame either= Sociopath

  • The economy of China dated back about 60 years ago when the Chinese infrastructure was up an coming and it was in a race with USA ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ.
    By the way Iโ€™m selling tomatoes ๐Ÿ…

  • We want trade with you! If you dont wanna trade with us! Stop trading with us, dont pretend it as a national trajedy! Are you guys from Hollywood… Actor

  • Effective 9/1 the corporation I am acting CEO of will be requesting a letter of guarantee from our material suppliers for made in America origination. Furthermore I will be providing assistance within the material handling industry to our partner companies for also sourcing in the USA only. Aside of politics and politicians the interests of our employees and their families are paramount now and in the long term.

  • You guys are arguing while we Chinese get ready to battle.
    We want peace here,but your president want to play with fire.
    Do all of you get ready?

  • The Senate is being ran by Russian Operates, Moscow Mitch McConnel and Leningrad Lindsey Graham! Where are the American Patriots to stop them?

  • Carlos Calimeno says:

    Trump. Is. 6 time. Bankrup. Trump. Bankrup. Farmar. Peoples. And. Wisconsin. Gran. You. I. Moron. Lyign. Stop. Lyign. For. Thes. 45. Trump. Is. 6 time. Bankrup.

  • Max & Sujy React says:

    China is 10 moves ahead of Trump, if you live in Asia you know that. I do not think that people understand how much control China has over East-Asia and South-East Asia. They also have a huge advantage geographically with countries around them also thriving. I am from Canada, living in Asia, Canada is great but small population and a weak prime minister. Trump the 'Chosen One' does not have the mental ability at his age to outsmart Xi Jinping. And Poutine is laughing secretly.

  • dude I'm stupid can you be to say in the trade war America has more bullets in China look around you dumbass 98.8% of the stuff that you own was made in China including what you eat you ignorant bastard ๐Ÿ˜‚

  • aristotlestudent says:

    Giving China what every other American President failed to is not "lashing out", Fox…
    It's about time we think about America and our economic future.
    WE HAVE DREAMS TOO…

  • American politics isn't smart at all remember Chinese is communist. Chinese people can living with 300$: a month but American can't lives with this money

  • We have more bullets than them? ๐Ÿ˜‚
    If that true than I guess we have bad aim and they are sharpshooters because we are losing this unnecessary trade war. Numbers don't lie like the liar in chief

  • why is the amazon burning ? trade war china buying crops from brazil so burn more rainforests so they can plant more while the american farmers go bankrupt WRONG STRATEGY

  • Why would a senator say "to play by the rules" for a man who had been in the Senate as long as he has he doesn't play by the rules

  • @POTUS has said "NO" to "MUNICH". Had England and France kicked a little "Heine hiney" when the Krauts reoccupied the Rhineland … had they said NO to the SUDETENLAND … WWIi might not have happened. The German generals would have OFFED the Austrian paper hanging son-of-a-bitch.

  • pyramidtrader1 says:

    it is going to start a depression. I can see the rail traffic dropping like a rock on a major train artery on the eastern seaboard. down from 10 or 12 freight trains to 3 or 4 a day. that is a major drop. this trade war sounds good to beer drinkers and the xenophobic types. it will not work. and the stock market is a bloated scam and this could bring the house od cards down.

  • Jesus Is SATAN says:

    The people in this comment section have no idea what politics the Chinese are hiding!! They have been preparing for this for 7 thousand years! America canโ€™t go one night with out Walmart! People, who the hell do you think will win?! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Finally someone who does not want to keep supporting a regime that has no regard for human life or rights. We should never have invested in China. Their values are completely antithetical to ours.

  • China actually produces material stuff. Cheap stuff that consumers want to buy. The U.S. produces pieces of paper that they use to buy the stuff. The U.S. has no ammunition in a trade war.

  • If we had a democrat in the white house America would be bending over and letting China stick it to us— right Barry Obama? Trump is showing China that America is done accepting Chinese B.S.

  • Despite their atheist antagonism to the Christian west, China has blessed the small Christian ministries printing literature with low costs that literally dwarf American costs. GOD knows how to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Never throw the baby out with the bathwater.

  • Trump thinks he has special power from God and you want to talk about bullets. Your a danger for not standing up to the insanity that spews from his mouth. GOP needs to do their job and propect our country. Thanks for the trillion dollar debt our country owes. 25th needs to be on the table. Our country has lost the respect of American people and the world.

  • Well if we are at "War" with China than yes Trump Has the Authority to order U.S. company's to leave China.. or face being in the position were you are aiding the enemy!!! Good luck with that.

  • Yeah move out of China and back to the States, now we can all buy a US made iphone for $5000 and sell our houses in the coming weeks. Life is totally great that way.

  • Take off China's food supply and they will fall down on their knees begging for food hihi,food is the only thing that keeps China going now,in the past and in the future.
