Once again the liberal socialists are left behind the brain train.

Tariff negotiations are the opening volley in an attempt to correct the horrible trade issues with
China. The real issues is not related to commodity prices of imports or exports, but rather to the Chinese
insistence that intellectual property be given to them as a condition of trade in China. That means
patents on advanced technical matters and not hip hop record albums.

As things now stand, our ability to produce substantial quantities of high tech military hardware
is dependent on China. They now control the manufacture of advanced electronic components.
Nice work Obuma.

Trump is right again.
Me thinks that it was ol', "2-fingered slick", that gave the Chi-Coms CRAY Computers and ICBM guidance systems!

Rump is now looking for a way back into the TPP.....because it turns out trade treaties are how tou solve trade issues, who knew?
Then WE need to write our international trade treaties using, "RECIPROCITY"!!!

Let our trading partners write the agreements and us just use what they wrote!!

How hard is this to figure out??

When Pres Pee Brain pulled us out the other countries dropped the stuff the US wanted and singed it...so before the US was by far the biggest economy at the table with a lot of leverage, but now the partnership group is larger than the US not all that interested in what the US wants. It was a silly move the both stretched China and weakened the US....but it's what he said he'd do so careful what you wish for.
