On Trade With China, Trump Folds Like A Cheap Suit


Recommended Posts

As many of us have long suspected, the new Phase 1 trade deal with China indicates a complete and total failure on the part of the Trump Administration. The current Administration ended up obtaining basically none of his original goals.  If I can use an analogy, the following sums up what has happened between the U.S. and China since Donald Trump was inaugurated in 2017:

In January 2017, when Donald Trump took office, he stood at the bottom of a big staircase. During the past three years, he basically took 4 steps up the staircase. As he took those four steps up, Americans everywhere suffered. Farmers lost their businesses, and dairy farms collapsed.  Other farmers barely stayed out of bankruptcy, and the American consumers were forced to pay hundreds of millions of dollars in tariffs. In addition, the U.S. government has been forced to pay countless millions of dollars to try and keep farmers afloat.

Trump’s Phase 1 Trade Agreement represents Donald Trump taking 2 steps back down the staircase.  He’s lessoning the tariffs, and in exchange, China has agreed to buy more from us than they have recently been purchasing from us.  All of the pain has basically been pointless. Donald Trump is retreating—he is caving—as the Chinese always knew he would.

So, in three years, Donald Trump has basically gone somewhere, placing lots of tariffs on China, and taken us halfway back cutting those tariffs in half, all while creating a whole lot of suffering, and all the while basically getting none of his goals accomplished. This was always going to happen because the Chinese do things long term, and they were always going to wait for Donald Trump to cave. This is because they knew he would cave before the 2020 election.  All of that pain and all of that suffering ended up having no purpose whatsoever. Few things sum up the Trump Presidency like this.  What a complete moron, and what an epic failure.  CNN’s Fareed Zakaria sums the whole thing up nicely in five minutes:

Trump is all about the Claimed Victory. The actual victory is utterly irrelevant. All that matters is his supporters believe that he has achieved victory

Trump* thought winning a trade war would be as easy as screwing a contractor out of their money

 

* impeached

You are going to quote cnn?  You know cnn hates Trump and will do anything to make him look bad.  So they rig the report to make it look as bad as possible.  You take it in hook, line, and sinker.  You are sooooooo stupid.  

Did you say anything about intellectual property?  Of course not, because that was a total victory for Trump.   There are many other things in the treaty that were a win, but you do not mention 1.  At least you are consistent with your resistence.   You don't know anything else.  

 

The upward climb of the stock market tells you that other smart people think it was a win for Trump and the people of the US.

 

So pull you head out and take a fresh smell of victory.  And see you in the next 5 years with Trump in the WH.

It is not an analogy. It is a comparison.

A growth rate is a growth rate. Trump was the ignorant one when he claimed that trade deals were easy.

Trade deals were easy for obama, he gave everything away and got nothing, then agreed quickly.  Good going dumb dems.

 

I truly believe their end goal was to hurt America.

Slightly less that half of all Americans own stock, many indirectly in retirement funds.

So it would be a win for 51.1% of the population on average.

There is a lot more to being a good president than the stock market.

I have been an active investor since the 1970's, and there is  NO WAY I will vote for Trump.

Many investors that do participate in the stock market are foreigners.

The stock market normally rises more when Democrats occupy the WH.

What trade deals did Obama sign with China? Mostly, Obama simply continued the trade deals in effect when he took office.

Trump has not won much, if anything, so far, and most remains to be done.

Trump dos not even understand that  an uneven  balance of payment is always a bad thing.

It he actually CARED about Americans, he would not have every goddamned product with his name on it made overseas.

Obama's big deal was the deal with iran.  Wow was that a big mistake.  When he sent that pallet of money to iran, he should have been tried for treason.  He is the cause of many American deaths from that money used for terrorism.  His regime even admitted that some of that money would be used for terrorism around the world.  Wow, how stupid is that, and the dems didn't even consider impeaching  their fully flawed god.

That was not a trade deal.

But as we will see, Trump reneging on it will prove expensive, and unwise.

He did not GIVE Iran money, he RETURNED money the US seized when the Shah was deposed.

Again, it was NOT a trade deal at all.

 

Iran has the same right to develop nukes as Israel does. In fact, the main impetus for Iran to have nukes is that Israel has them.

The US could have prevented this, but did not.

That pretty much sums it up, were dealing with a complete irrational cult, it simply doesn't matter how much the truth aligns with you and how much evidence mounts against Trump. McConnell has already made it clear he wants no evidence even from the hearings in this trial and lets be honest if RBG were to die on 1/19/20 he would do everything in his power to get a conservative confirmed.

Obama gave it to them.  There was no court order requiring him to do that, he WANTED to. 

And he knew it was wrong, which is why he did it in the dead of night, and in cash.
