Why is it important for Trump to be tough on trade with China?


>>IF THEY DON’T WANT TO TRADE WITH US THAT’S FINE WITH ME. WE WILL SAVE A LOT OF MONEY.>>Laura: GORDON JOINS US. WHERE DO YOU SEE THIS GOING? WE TALKED ABOUT THIS IDEA IT’S CRAZY FOR US TO TRADE WITH CHINA AT ALL? THE PRESIDENT FLOATED THAT CONCEPT TODAY. THE MARKETS WERE JITTERY THE LAST COUPLE OF DAYS. WHERE DO THINGS STAND NOW?>>WELL, THINGS STAND AT A POINT WHERE THE CHINESE ARE NOT TALKING TO US. AT THE G-20, THEY NEGOTIATED AN INTERIM DEAL THAT WAS FAVORABLE FOR CHINA. THE CHINESE AGREED TO BUY MORE AG-PRODUCTS. THEY COULD NOT EVEN HONOR THAT. IN BEIJING, THERE IS POLITICAL PARALYSIS. SOMETHING IS REALLY WRONG. YOU CAN’T NEGOTIATE WITH THE CHINESE RIGHT NOW. TRUMP IS SAYING WE WILL GO ON WITHOUT THEM. THAT’S WHERE WE NEED TO BE. DISENGAGE.>>Laura: AND REPORTERS CAME OUT THAT CHINA SAID IT LOOKS LIKES IT’S MOVING TOWARDS AN EFFORT TO DE-COUPLE FROM THE UNITED STATES. HOW REALISTIC IS THAT WITH GERMANY’S ECONOMY FLAT. FRANCE IN TURMOIL. BREXIT STILL NOT DETERMINED. A LOT OF TUMULT IN BRITAIN. NO OTHER ECONOMY IS STRONG IN THE WORLD OTHER THAN THE UNITED STATES. HOW DOES CHINAA DECOUPLE?>>THEY CAN’T REALLY DECOUPLE. LAST YEAR’S CHINA’S MERCHANDISED IN THE U.S. WAS 103%. WE HAVE AN ECONOMY THAT IS NOT DEPENDENT ON CHINA BUT CHINA HAS AN ECONOMY DEPENDENT ON US. THAT GIVES US A LOT OF LEVERAGE. ONE THING WE HAVE SEEN THIS

    We should reset society to the Stone age, that'll solve all the problems until we get back to this point again lol.

  • Why don't we just pay off China? The US has the money, the US total accumulation of wealth is recorded at 84.9 trillion dollars as of 2015. When Trump came into office, his budget spending is about 4 trillion with an annual revenue of 3.65 trillion. Yes, it's a deficit of about 1 trillion dollars, but the US still has the money to pay off China in its treasury. It's hard to negotiate a deal when we owe China money.

  • Show Me What I Need To Know says:

    TOO LATE — The US already gave China all their intellectual property with forced knowledge and technology transfers. We're idiots.

  • I feel bad for all of the farmers Trump fooled. The president of China is there until he dies, Trump is replaceable before then.

  • Being tough on Trade is okay, being an arrogant bully who doesn't have a single clue as to how international trade works is not okay

  • RaptureReadyFaithfulBride BornAgain1987 says:

    1 Corinthians 15:1-4 (KJV) Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
    By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
    For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
    And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

  • Make no mistake, Trump is More dangerous than a Catholic priest at a Cub scout meeting on epstein's island.

    A Literal definition of a KAKISTOCRACY.

    Not a president,
    A motivational speaker for Racists and pedophiles.

  • CHINA IS AT WAR WITH BOTH TAIWAN & HONG KONG AND HAVE STOLEN TIBET FOR POLITICAL GAIN.
    AS LONG AS THE U.S. DOES NOT PUT AN EMBARGO ON THEM AS WELL AS KEEPS SOME TYPE OF TRADE DEAL, THEN CHINA WILL USE THIS LEVERAGE TO HOLD POWER OVER AND BULLY THESE TWO DEMOCRATIC REGIONS HONG KONG AND TAIWAN.

  • 60% of Kentucky voters are saying it's time to dump McConnell. No presidential candidate has ever won with approval numbers as low as Trump's. Both Trump and McConnell are going to be voted out of office in 2020. Trump will be going to prison, McConnell will be going to hell.

  • 1.3 billion people have to eat. We've got the food. The Russian people threw the Czar out when they couldn't get enough to eat. He was as autocratic as the Chicoms are.

  • Gordon Chang lol, sums up Fox News pretty well. I wonder who still watches "news" like this, maybe boomers who dropped out of high school 100 years ago.

  • OK I get it our last presidents were.stupid and corrupt..we know
    but China still took advantage of us..I get it..I mean if you can give an idiot a nickel
    and get back a quarter ..why not I mean if they're stupid enough..but then there's the moral high road
    that one should take..in order to be fair..and not take advantage of that special needs president..
    but they didn't..and now China has cities where no one resides..they got so much off of us
    ……….and then came TRUMP…tee hee

  • I’m from Mexico , I just crossed the border n apply for asylum working in California . Send the money back to Mexico . Good life in the US. Thanks president let me come into a such great country .

  • All the President wants is an even playing field, which has not been the case with previous administrations. If China doesn't consider a fair agreement, then they will not be missed.

  • Well given China's economy grew at 6.6% last year and TRUMP'S economy grew at 2.9%… I know which one is going to collapse first..

  • So ask this trade War continues on, Trump supporters will start losing their jobs just like the auto plant closed down in Ohio because of the tariffs and his supporters will still say he's doing a wonderful job. Even as he kick people off SNAP benefits they will still support him when they can't eat

  • I guess in discussing a tough stance on China, Gordon and Laura failed to mention the American casualties in this process. Farmers on welfare, consumer costs going up and American companies being put out of business. Also, I guess the dependence of America on Chinese goods can be dismissed as well. America imports more goods from China than any other country. Year to date, America imported $219 billion worth of goods (17.7% of all imports ) from China. Despite Gordon's inane assertions, the trade relationship between America and China is symbiotic. China may cheat but changing supply chains requires money, time and disruption. They can not be changed by tweet or tantrum and their consequences will be felt by all parties.

  • Democrats playing victim card.2016 ,2017, U.S. aid to Central America $1,125 trillion.5,000 migrants per day crossing ?40,000 factories are out of business? Housing crises, cost of prison system, we have the worse immigration system. U.S pays 50% tax but U.S debt is $22 trillion.Blame president Trump.Democrats have wish list Fairyland,In few hours Iraq war resolution was passed? Y nt Immigration resolution. China tariffs to U.S 25%.

  • We don't need china. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  • Cristian Seitz says:

    The word “tough” doesn’t describe Trump.
    Coward, pathetic, puppet, narcissist, liar, adulterer, poser, these are much better descriptions.

  • Shameless guy. The Coming Collapse of China was published in 2001. China grew in GDP from the sixth in 2000 to overtake Japan in 2010 as second in the world. Then beat US in PPP in 2014. Yet Chang still has the nerve to show his face in media. He’s been a joke for 20 years!

  • China broke their promises to us. We had an agreement, then they backed out and wanted to redo it. They promised to buy agriculture, they never did. They promised to criminalize fentynol, they never did. It's time to charge them more until they shape up.

  • myownname myownlastname says:

    Trump the fake deal maker is now responsible for the trade wars with China,Mexico, Canada and soon France.

  • Because he won't label them a currency manipulator like he promised in 2015/2016. Because once he was in office he got his trademark and then pivoted. gotta dump trump if democracy is to survive.

  • Ever negotiated with management who is not in good faith? If you give in because you have to feed your kids with made in china, you will lose every time.

  • Spoiled brat trimp didn't get what he wants again.. The great stable genius negotiator can't seem to work it out.. So just keep escalating the turmoil you created. At least he will get that Nobel peace prize for North Korea and that new deal with Iran. Totally sarcasm

  • US has also become less of a factor for China…… USA has a 21 Trillion dollar debt and is forced to print more money to pay its' interest payments.

  • ProfoundClarity says:

    I hear 6 republicans are retiring….trump is fracturing the republican party….he really took his hood off now…

  • Weevil Entertainment says:

    China is in a corner china wants a new us president because trump is to much for them and they know it trump has China by the neck.

  • No one care about this food who should be here in the first but is thanks to the moron who put him in the White House for mo reason piece of junk

  • Don’t forget, China owns and controls most all of our industrial and manufacturing capacity, not to mention owns a lot of the gold. That’s a big big problem for the US!

  • I disagree lets just let China swindle us in every way imaginable and become the most powerful country in the world at our expense

  • .trump is coping stuff that has worked .under obama china wanted to start atomic war 3 times with the US. FACT .russia stopped them , you are out of your mind if you want to keep feeding there war funding thur trade , india is a free nation and poor .build up free nations with trade , stave the slave and war nations of the earth with trade . = trump plan . its that easy . peace

  • 聯邦趙國 says:

    中華民國先亡于大日本帝國,后亡于共產蘇联!
    抗日戰爭前,蔣介石很清楚民国最大威胁是境外反華勢力的蘇维埃匪共,且从江西一路剿到延安,一度打剩三万。
    1937年七七事變,淞沪会战爆發,蔣以黃埔嫡系中央軍身先士卒,3個德械師全部报销,其它地方軍也傷亡慘重。同年12月5日南京淪陷,民朝滅亡(5個月滅中國,蔣介石政府變地方政權)
    斯大林为了防止日本和德意志帝国对苏联东西夹击,下令拿着卢布 种着鸦片的臘肉助蔣抗日,臘匪只好一分抗日三分打蔣七分發展十二分宣傳。由于37-41年苏联对中国低息供应了1000架飞机,2000名飞行员,500名军事顾问及大量大炮、军需品,所以日本始终啃不下蒋介石,另一方面持久战燃烧的天价军费和人员伤亡也让日本陷入了战争的泥潭。
    加上美国的经济制裁,1941年12月日本发动珍珠港偷袭,罗斯福宣布對日开戰,太平洋战争爆发。
    面对美中同盟,腊匪暗中和日本勾结,華北治安軍由此降至1-2万。在日本陆军主力滅蔣下,湖南 贵州持續淪陷。
    1945年,强弩之末的日本在太平洋戰場全军覆没,加上兩顆美国新研發原子彈的毁灭性打击,天皇宣布無條件投降。同年8月,蘇联150万紅軍佔領東北
    對於战后的國共對峙,斯大林不得不看美國臉色,命令臘肉去重慶走走,臘肉一百個不高興,但不得不到重慶裝了孫子。事后臘肉撕毀裁軍条约,重庆談判無果而終。
    而剛結束二战的蔣介石渴望和平与战后重建,下令裁軍(1944年已裁軍百萬)。1946年,共产渗透的杜魯門政府实施馬歇爾計畫,開始對華禁運。
    取得美国中立后,盤踞東北的共產蘇联以1-3万苏联技术兵种+60万日本关东军+10万林彪等匪军组建“四野”,以科瓦廖夫為总指揮,發動谋划已久的滅華戰爭——國共外戰!蔣介石在蘇日满共聯軍下兵敗如山倒,1949年从成都逃往臺北,中華民國在大陸宣告落幕。

    面对中国沦陷于共产党,麦克阿瑟游说白宫 严厉批评杜鲁门政策,最后促成美国第七舰队进驻台湾海峡,并拒绝共匪政权加入联合国。
    斯大林完成了列寧赤化中國的夢想,科瓦廖夫“功成身退”。代理人臘肉接管中国后先殺百萬國軍,再和俄爹分贓領土,接着共全国人民的産为一党私有,啟動奴隸制集中營模式!

    1991年12月,萬惡的蘇联共產黨垮了
    30年後, 輪到乾兒子共慘黨去孝敬斯大林了

    最大贏家:蘇联共產國際和毛臘肉
    最大助攻手:大日本帝國
    意外收穫:民主日本,西德
    日本宪政の父——麦克阿瑟
    1945年8月美国把日本打回原形后,先释放了大量政治犯,让其建立民主政党,然后立法让妇女拥有选举权(香港妇女至今没选票)10月,解除政府对报纸的禁令。12月,推出《工会法》允许工人建立自己的公会组织。
    因战后日本一片萧条 没钱没粮,麦克阿瑟从美国调来350万吨粮食和20亿美元解决人民温饱,并改革土地制度和振兴日本经济,扶持丰田等新兴企业。1947年民选教育委员会,《教育法》的修订使日本教育独立,摆脱了政府洗脑…看到日本欣欣向荣发展起来,摄政七年的麦克阿瑟决定功成身退。
    1952年,在麦克阿瑟偷偷返回美国时,日本百万人夹道相送。

    从此,民主日本不断对人类文明发光发热。而畜共因政权合法性焦虑症,周太监大手一挥,放弃了可用于中国战后重建的巨额战争赔款。但是享着民主自由天伦之福的日本,还是多方面帮助了曾因侵华战争带来四千万人伤亡的中国大陆。

  • Steven Klinkhamer says:

    Sounds like we may have the "upper hand"
    in this trade dispute with China- hopefully we take full advantage of our superior position- the Chinese have not been playing by the rules with regard to fair trade by all accounts- bout time we called them on it.

  • I know this Chinese guy who come from China. But he is a Chinese traitor who engages anti-China for a long time. Shame on he.

  • Michael Newell says:

    Suck and blow suck and blow suck and blow suck and blow and hurt Americans even more. That's a real Donald J Trump. Sucking and blowing in hurting Americans. Gosh I wonder who is really working for?

  • Republicans and Democrats knew what China does with their currency but were afraid to do anything just like the embassy. There are two choices, one let China keep taking advantage of us or do we need to do. Either way somebody got to loose something to win something.

  • China has stolen top secert info thru spies put in computers and phones we get from them. We can supply much more made in USA so wont miss china stuff lots of which is junk.

  • To be fair China can`t afford 2 drop the ball with USA and that is facts. If China has been bending us over for 20 or more years it is time for payback.

  • Evelyn Sinnett says:

    Why don't we just we just goon with out China we don't need China They can just leave us be & WE can GIT our money they owe us from them t any way .

  • Really ?!China needs the US?
    Tsk tsk…. trump is the one dying to get China.
    And beside most merchandise and stuffs here in the US are made in China or could I say from China.

  • Cristian Seitz says:

    Remember this important fact. Many presidents have monuments to their greatness. Others have presidential libraries documenting the important moments throughout their tenure in office.
    Trump will never have either of these. He will pass into history as a sad, vengeful failure as a president and as a man.
