Strolling towards a group of reporters waiting at the back garden driveway of the White House on Wednesday ahead of his departure for a veterans event in Kentucky, President Donald Trump said the U.S. economy is doing very while China is doing poorly.
Trump said, “This is a trade war that should have taken place years ago… Somebody had to do it. I am the Chosen One.”
“Somebody had to do it, so I’m taking on China. I’m taking on China on trade, and you know what? We’re winning,” he repeated.
Trump said tax cuts, deregulation, and an Administration dedicated to growing business have allowed the U.S. economy to flourish; The resulting surge in job creation and record low unemployment has put the American worker in the driver’s seat.
Trumps told that the Americans could tolerate a recession with the stock market going down for some months when decoupling with China. But the U.S. is looking good in the long run. He no longer blames the Federal Reserve’s refusing to cut interest rates as the economy is still going strong.
Trump said, “Doing great with China and other Trade Deals. The only problem we have is Jay Powell and the Fed. He’s like a golfer who can’t putt, has no touch. Big U.S. growth if he does the right thing, BIG CUT – but don’t count on him!”
Before the dialogue with President Iohannis of Romania, Trump said, “If you look at China, China has had the worst year they’ve had in 27 years. And they want to make a deal with us, but I can tell you I’m not ready to make a deal. ”
This time Donald Trump has truly proved to the world that he is very serious to economically take on Communist China. The UK Brexit Party Leader Nigel Farage said “Trump is the first global leader to call out China” when talking to the American Thought Leaders on the crisis of Hong Kong.
On a number of occasions, the president has accused China of trafficking illegal drugs to harm the Americans. He blamed President Xi Jinping of failing to meet promises to stem a deluge of the synthetic opioid fentanyl into the United States.
“The Chinese kingpins that OFAC designated today run an international drug trafficking operation that manufactures and sells lethal narcotics, directly contributing to the crisis of opioid addiction, overdoses, and death in the United States. These Chinese kingpins have shipped hundreds of packages of synthetic opioids to the U.S., targeting customers through online advertising and sales, and using commercial mail carriers to smuggle their drugs into the United States,” said Sigal Mandelker, Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence.
In another development, the U.S. Defense Department on Wednesday officially notified the U.S. Congress of the plan to sell 66 F-16 fighters and relevant equipment worth around 8 billion U.S. dollars to Taiwan and to provide support.
China on Wednesday urged the United States to immediately cancel the planned arms sales to Taiwan, saying China will take all necessary measures to defend its own interests including imposing sanctions on U.S. companies involved in the planned sales.
“China firmly opposes the plan and has lodged solemn representations and protests to the U.S. side,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told a press briefing.
Apparently afraid of more tougher measures from the United States in retaliation, Beijing appealed to Washington on Wednesday to “meet China halfway” and end the tariff war.
CCP killer Guo Wengui said in his whistle blow on Tuesday that the most important event in New York for the day was a lunch meeting of the country’s 50 top VIPs discussing ways to counter the communist regime. Guo said even Vice-president Wang Qishan’s old friends attended the meeting.
It is said guests at the private lunch include economics writer Stephen Moore, Blackstone CEO Steve Schwarzman, Gristedes supermarket founder John Catsimatidis and former New York GOP chairman Ed Cox, according to CNBC.
Addressing the lunch meeting, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told the group of business executives and free trade economists that he believed the trade war with China could come to an end by the 2020 presidential election.
General Robert Spalding has his latest remarks as a response to the Call for Official Recognition of the Chinese Communist Party as a terrorist organization.
Spalding tweeted, “The next time someone complains about the tariffs, ask them – does the CCP promote 1) a market economy, 2) an open financial system, 3) a convertible currency, 4) an open internet, 5) freedom of speech and religion, or 6) basic human rights?”
“If not, then why in the hell do we give them access to our country to do as they see fit? We would definitely stand up (I hope) if they were sending Marines to storm our beaches. Is it any less invasive if instead of guns they come bearing our own money to buy our silence?”
When all U.S. giants Donald Trump, Mike Pence, Mike Pompeo, John Bolton, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Mitch McConnell…are standing up to take on Communist China, no CCP leaders have come out to say a single word.
