    many US people don't understand, China helps US to be great. When US have an idea, China could help them to be accomplished the idea in the most efficient way. that's why so many US companies set factories in China, because China helps US to make the most profit.

  • The 'stable genius' at work. Absolutely hilarious! USA is the biggest laughing stock due to the antics of this clueless clown.

  • This is not going go well for us the Chinese can simply devalue yuan to nullify your tariffs but the use can't do the same without increasing import cost.

  • Robert van Dijk says:

    Reading some comments below on "crushing China"???..you do know that USA owes China $ trillions in debt, China has bought up alot of American debt , they own large parts of American real estate..
    Wait till you all go X'mas shopping this year and see prices go sky high !! Your President managed to plummet the dow, increase the deficit, bankrupt farmers and American Car manufacturers…and flip flops over every subject…and is bringing recession closer and closer with his infantile twitters!! , if you think China's regime is corrupt just investigate how much money the NRA and defence department is giving to Congress members…Trump recently received $ 30 million from the NRA.., and you all want goods made again in America ?? Any idea what things are going to cost then ??..you do know that all Trump's buildings were made with foreign products !! I feel sorry for the other G7 leaders who are not Trust Fund Babies , casino bankrupting, reality TV rodeo clowns !

  • Very Fake News CNN says:

    What authority president has? Did you see that twit's facial expression? Trump put those companies into position telling the public that those carriers knowing chinese are poisoning them, continue serving China. It is a game Trump plays. He doesn't tell them what to do– he makes information that is always suppressed, forefront.

  • Last year China tried to buy into Greenland, to put "international airports," at half a billion dollars to Denmark. Their interest in Greenland and the pressure they put on Denmark to accept their offer sent them running to President Trump, telling him and the Pentagon how they needed the money, but they feared for their own national security and the security of Greenland if they were "forced" to accept the offer. So the U.S. gave them some unspecified amount in funding and a new treaty with the Pentagon for military protection. China is still spreading as a global military threat, and they are trying to take over the world financially. President Trump is acting in the best interest of America to take the bull by the horns.

  • AMERICANS BEWARE OF THE BLACK MAILED RINOS ! MITCH MCCONNELL AND Kevin McCarthy are DISHONEST DISGRACEFUL DISGUSTING DANGEROUS HYPOCRITICAL NEVER TRUMP ELITIST SNOBBY RAT SCUMMERS ! JOHNNY ISSACKSON AND LAMAR ALEXANDER ARE TOTAL DISGRACEFUL BABY SLAUGHTERING scum ! NEVER EVER NEVER TRUST THAT OLD QUEEN LINDSEY GRAHAM !

  • Trade war is a political theater tool use to artificially manipulate the 2008 – 2019-20 "stock market big ugly bubble" in preparation for the 2020 election. Killing the U S economy and the its currency at any price, for political gains.

  • I am having a rough time in understanding how China did this call on their own , didnt wall street introduce outsourcing to china as the start
    of the problem

  • Bret relax. This is TRADE, the media added the word WAR. This is the trade we should have been engaged. President Trump knows these money markets.Bret are you going after anyone else's job? WWG1WGA

  • Keep it up trump china has been screwing and stealing from USA for along time.I am a mechanic so i have seen first hand what they have done with automotive ,HVAC ,commercial laundry equipment.We can make products in USA better and create jobs in this country
    keep it up.

  • Sunday Morning Futures w/ Maria is the only show on FOX 'Daytime' I trust
    anymore, and it's just on Sunday! lol Fox News wake up you are starting to
    smell like CNN. Nobody trust CNN. Best bet watch Maria weekday mornings
    on FOX Business Channel for the real news, and your money.

  • Trump has regret over his regret about everything except he is not regretting about anything. The stupid is what stupid tweet.

  • Worst president ever.. trump even said it's the U.S people who pay for tariffs. Yet he still raised tariffs.. stocks keep going down. He order companies out of China and expects them to pickup and leaveπŸ˜‚trump is such a joke now no one can take him seriously

  • Ramesses O. Reagan says:

    The Federal Reserve has a practical obligation to acknowledge fiscal reality. The trade war is happening, it is reality, The Fed doesn't have a say in whether or not there is a trade war. The Fed's responsibility is to respond to the facts of the trade war in such a way that supports the American economy. Powell and the other Fed Governors need to support the trade war with some easy-money policy. Trump is right.

  • Trump has always boasted about economy and how great he can make it. Now it looks like he is lying again. Anyway, doesn't matter, Sayoc's always love his father. Liar in Chief, and pathological liar in Cruz's term.

  • China is the red muleta to Trump. He is totally mad, he dwarf James Mattis totally, it's not fair to call Mattis mad dog at all
    . Remember he was boasting his nuke button size against Kim not too long ago, such a stable genius.

  • Tornado Of Souls says:

    Only an idiot would defend China eating our lunch with a trade deficit of $500,000,000,000 a year for at least 20 years…

  • It wouldn’t be a bitter battle if China thought fairly of it’s friendly, neighboring countries…like the United States. All we’re asking for is a level playing field. We don’t want to be ripped off – We want to trade in a way that’s fair for both sides. That should not be hard to agree too!! πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

  • William Delancy says:

    The real truth for dummies. Trump tariffs are a way for Trump to cause recession world wide, especially in the U.S.. Trump will benefit from the fed lowering the interest rate points, he will gain hundreds of millions of dollars by this. Trump does not care about anyone but himself. Wake the hell up out there!!!!!!

  • Yikes! Where is the end? American goods are superior. Bring the jobs home.The corporate tax cuts have hardly been justified when you consider American corporations with their write offs did not pay much tax to begin with.

  • China has been reverse engineering our products for decades in what they could not steal. American corporations need to quit ripping off American consumers as well.The American people have been bailing them out of bankruptcy. Too big to fail??? How about too small to compete with the monopolies?

  • How could we ever have thought that giving our jobs away to a Communist nation was a good idea?Β  Who in the world ever thought up that silly thought?

  • This president doesn’t care at all about the American consumer. This is going to May every way more expensive. I hope the next president does away with all these crazy tariffs. We’re headed into another recession folks.

  • mmost of these 300 billions goods are priduced by US companies in China. But it's too expensive for these companies to move out China.

  • bad decision making Rob Low Sport says:

    Ohhh noooo, I'm going to have to pay 4 cents more for the 2$, cheap, poorly made, disposable, second rate, Chinese product that many American retailers force on their consumers because they pay next to nothing for that cheap, poorly made, disposable, second rate Chinese product…..

    Ohhh the humanity

  • I dont think you can order a company operating on another contenent following those rules of that Country to do anything unless you own that company and/or a greater number of stocks or shares in that Company, can you?

  • I β€˜m tired of having cheap poorly made sometimes toxic Chinese goods foisted on me because I can’t find what I need/want made in USA. I will gladly pay more for goods made here because I know I’m helping with jobs for my fellow Americans. Boycott Chinese goods . Bring manufacturing & tech back to USA !

  • Red Pill Review News says:

    It looks to me after much research, that only the rich are going to be feeling the pain of these China tariffs. Yes some items will increase in price, but items have been increasing in price every single year despite any of this China tariff stuff. Every single year our rent goes up which has nothing to do with China. So once again I see this affecting only the very wealthy used in the very richest of America. And as you have probably noticed the middle class of America hasAll but dwindled away. And the gap between the rich and the poor grow bigger and bigger every day.

  • MADE IN THE USA sounds gooood to me….
    Japan also makes good products I will use too like GUITARS. Goodby Gibson you suck.

  • We need to cut Government spending to counteract the rising national debt. Unfortunately, the Republicans and Democrats don't even have a clue what they are doing. We are doomed if we rely on these clowns for another day. They can raise funds with the best of them but to what ends?… Their power and wealth. How does a former President make 100 Million dollars plus? Congress people with 4 Million dollar houses. Senators with so much wealth…I don't think a single one has less than 1 Million dollars in the bank…but send our military over to the middle east so they can lose their limbs and their lives to protect their wealth. Enough is enough.

  • when did 3% equal a "plummet"!!!! china is waiting out the next election and wants him out so another weakling will come in and give china free rein in the market and in the south china sea!!! dangerous stuff!!! and realize folks that china is sending in $$$$$$$$$$$ to throw trump out of washington — research it, don't take my word for it

  • Get rid of the FED it served its purpose many many yrs ago and should have been dismantled a few yrs after it was created !

  • All the Liberal media outlets have misquoted Trump stating he's ordered US companies to pull their business from China.

    How do you misquote that?

    And as to whether a President has the power to make such an order, I don't believe he can, but he can control what comes and goes to China, which is detrimental for any US businesses who have any investments with China.

    Under the 1977 International Emergency Economic Powers Act, Section 203, Paragraph (B), the President has the power to prohibit the transfer of any property subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, during a state of emergency or time of war.

  • Ivan Hernandez says:

    I wouldn't never understand how people buy cheap products made in China when we know it destroyed American economy? It's difficult to understand?

  • Khaled Boukert says:

    Chinese products is better than Us products. I think trump got jelous of chine's Why us look china got relationship with All the world contries unlike u it got strong relation with Algeria Africa Europe Asia Midle east means All the world but US is nothing it doesn't ship any of its products to the world. That's matter!

  • What America has been doing to China in this evil war is simply bullying. Every country can see that. The world is returning to the order of the forest – violence, robbery, bullying, and more to come.

  • Just another childish temper tantrum from the liar in chief because he is not getting his own way. Don't mention the Trillion dollar increase in budget deficit, the billions of dollars increase in trade deficit, American consumers having to pay the import tax I.e. Tariffs, don't mention any of Trump's complete lies and con tricks or his fraudulent university having to pay $20 million in reparation or Trump's fraudulent charity being run as a family bank account, or most of his products being made in China and Philippines or how much his resorts have charged taxpayers for his visits. Just keep up the BS.

  • China is under enormous pressure; they clearly need us a lot more than we need them. They've stolen our money, our lives and our ideas long enough.

  • The Fed playing checkers is like the tail wagging the dog. The head controls the adjustment not the adjustment trying to control the head. Points for Navarro.

  • Trump haters lack imagination and vision same old gloomy outlook. How about this: Trump complete the Pan-American Highway in the Darian Gap between Colombia and Panama. This could very well create an economic boom throughout the Americas. Help stop the impoverish immigration from the south. American investment would improve relationships with its backyard neighbors. And lastly, win him many Latino votes. No more stupid wars only better trade. Save the planet. Love God.

  • Go Trump, it's got to be done and the longer we wait the harder it will be. Even if the market drops or we have to pay more for goods, it has to be done.

  • It’s sickening how many are trying to stop Trump from doing great for America. It’s time to remove the central bank system, they only want to keep us in debt anyway.

  • PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS THE BRAINS & HEART FOR OUR COUNTRY ALL THE WAY, THIS IS A 100 %REAL AMERICAN PRESIDENT, SADπŸ–±οΈβ— OPPONENTS TRY TO PAINT A DIFFERENT UGLY PICTURE,

  • sockpuppetbitme says:

    Great, another republican prez destroying the economy. Dems always have to rebuild the country after GOP makes a disaster of everything. Trump's not even an economist, what would he know? Everyone knows trade wars never succeed, that's why they stopped that kinda stupidity decades ago. But Trump's fresh out of ideas and that's his plan and he's sticking to it.

  • sockpuppetbitme says:

    Trump can only lose at this stage, meanwhile he'll say he's winning over and over. LOL what a fool. The Chinese are eating him alive.
